John Stachel: "But this seems to be nonsense. How can it happen that the speed of light relative to an observer cannot be increased or decreased if that observer moves towards or away from a light beam? Einstein states that he wrestled with this problem over a lengthy period of time, to the point of despair."
A century of Darwinian selection (survival of the fittest) has produced incredibly silly Einsteinians that don't understand anything (half a century ago Einsteinians were much cleverer). Yet they know that phrases like "no matter how I move light travels at the same speed" should be taught to the gullible world in any possible way:
Michio Kaku, Brian Cox, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Brian Greene, Lisa Randall: "Now, listen carefully. The faster you move, the heavier you get. Light travels at the same speed no matter how you look at it. No matter how I move relative to you light travels at the same speed. No matter who is doing the measurement and no matter what direction you are moving the speed of light is the same. The speed of light is the same no matter what direction or how fast... As you travel faster time slows down. Everything slows down. Everything slows down. Time slows down when you move. Time passes at a different rate. Clocks run slow. It's a monumental shift in how we see the world. It's a beautiful piece of science. It's a beautifully elegant theory. It's a beautiful piece of science. It's a beautiful piece..."
In the video below Sabine Hossenfelder first sings a silly song and then, at 4:12, goes to Einstein's classical idiocy: The frequency changes for the moving observer but the speed of light doesn't:
Einstein's idea that, as the observer starts moving, the frequency changes but the speed of the light relative to him remains unchanged is OBVIOUSLY idiotic. Consider a light source emitting a series of pulses equally distanced from one another. A stationary observer (receiver) measures the frequency of the pulses:
The observer starts moving with constant speed towards the light source - the measured frequency increases:
Since the measured frequency increases, the speed of the pulses relative to the observer increases as well, in accordance with the formula
(measured frequency) = (speed of the pulses relative to the observer)/(distance between the pulses)
and in violation of Einstein's relativity.
