Special Relativity; Concept of Common Time; M&M Experiment
It is demonstrated that if we keep to a common clock duration unit on relatively moving frames such that the velocity of light, though still a universal physical constant, it becomes numerically variable due to metric changes affecting the parameter of length (radiated wavelength) on the moving frame. Following this procedure, it is then possible to confirm the null results reached by the M&M experiment without need for introducing the controversial hypothesis of length contraction.
