The special relativity hoax is contrived from a scalene triangle, ABD in fig.7, which shows Einstein's train travelling at relative speed v>0, whereby a vertical light pulse [dotted] in the train travels a greater distance AB diagonally [γ>1] as viewed from the platform.
γ>1 raises the paradoxes of time dilation, length contraction etc; which vanish if the pulse is sloped rearward in the train so as to travel the same distance with respect to both train and platform, i.e. γ=1. But how is it possible know the correct slope angle?
The angle finds itself automatically if sphere-emitting LEDs, or circle-emitting 'laser line levels' [as used for aligning partitions etc] are deployed on both train and platform so as to fire simultaneously from a common origin, whereupon their respective pulses interact as shown e.g. in figs.1-5, in which γ=1 at all values of v and the scalene triangle and its associated hoax have disappeared.
