Relativity and Cosmology


The Twin Paradox is not a Paradox by Mathematical Logic © Copyright 2018 by Colin James III All Rights Reserved.

Authors: Colin James III

We define the twin paradox without resort to stopping because we assume that instant velocity commences and terminates at an instant state of rest. Twins occupy the same fiducial point from which one twin obtains an instant velocity to a non-fiducial point, then obtains another instant velocity back to the fiducial point. The question is are the twins the same at the fiducial point before and after the separation and travel of the one twin. This is the state of affairs without special relativity. We also test the above as the counter example for the state of affairs with special relativity. [T]he twin paradox is not a paradox, but rather something else, namely, a state of affairs that is not tautologous and not contradictory. What follows is that special relativity is suspicious.
