The Quantum and Rest Frame Vacuum - Absolute Motion with Lorentz Convariance
In reading a translation of Lorentz’s original relativity paper, which preceded Einstein’s by about five years, I was startled to see how much of Special Relativity he developed. His foundation was the idea that Maxwell’s equation of electromagnetism is more fundamental than Newton’s equation of motion. He explored the “symmetry” of Maxwell’s equation, discovering the famous Lorentz transformations. He also then modified Newton’s motion equation to confirm to this symmetry and thus hit upon the correct Newton-Einstein equation of motion.
