The present paper compares two different approaches to Relativity. One is the approach made by Einstein at the beginning of the 20th century which postulates that light moves with light speed c independent of its emitting source. The proposed approach postulates that light moves with light speed c relative to its emitting source, which also includes the reflecting and refracting surfaces. Einstein interpreted the constancy of light speed in all inertial frames as a time and space problem resulting time dilation and length contraction, while the new approach considers it a speed problem where time and space are absolute variables. The result of the proposed approach is a theory where particles move according Galilei relativity, and speeds calculated with the transformation equations are virtual speeds that allow the calculation of magnitudes like momentum, energy, Doppler effect, etc., which are not linear functions of the Galilean speeds.
