    Heyho, I hope, this is the correct comment section you described for posting errors. The error is in the same paper, https://physicspages.com/pdf/Coleman%20QFT/Coleman%2001.02.02a%20Lorentz%20transformation%20of%20kets.pdf

    It’s a small one. In (18) the right U on the r.h.s. of the equation is supposed to be the adjoint U^+, not U itself.

    SRT is completely erroneous since it is based on the wrong kind of transformations: they have lost the scale factor characterizing the Doppler effect. First, Lorentz considered a more general form of transformations (with a scale factor), but then he, and also Poincare and Einstein equated it 1 without proper grounds. Their form was artificially narrowed, the formulas became incorrect. This led to a logical contradiction of the theory, to unsolvable paradoxes. Accordingly, GRT is also incorrect.

      Hey, I read your article and stopped reading at page 4 above fig. 2, since there you have misunderstood something, which you understand as a contradiction of the theory:

      You made a mistake when you concluded, that for the rocket N the light must have been slower, because it travelled less dinstance in the same time that the light travelled from A to B. This is wrong because the rocket N and person A are not in the same state of motion. Since rocket N is moving relative to A and B, who are at rest relative to each other, you have to measure the distance between N and B while the light pulse is emitted (not received by B), because the distance between N and B is a function of time (while the distance between A and B is not). The measured distance is the same length as the distance between A and B (both are measured in the rest frame of A and B).
      For comparision: If I would throw a ball 50 m from where I’m standing and while the ball flies, I go 10 m in the direction of the ball, did the ball only travel 40 m?
      The only thing that is different for A and N is, that there are in different states of motion and therefore they would both measure different distances to B (while emitting the light pulse). But since their time scales different for the same reason, they would both measure the light to have the same speed, because lorentz contraction of the distance and time dilation would cancel each other out and result in the same speed of light.
