**Abstract:**

This paper examines the relativistic time dilation with respect to symmetry and asymmetry between moving frames. The aim is to account for the time dilation as a projection of reality. The author outlines a hypothetical model where part of the traveller’s history is inaccessible in principle, but speed dependent in such a way that more of the history is revealed when the relative speed slows down. The logic properties of this model are explored in a kinematic setting; a consistent solution is found on how the traveller’s complete history unwinds.

@Gerd Termathe, you are absolutely right, thanks for this observation.The paper has now been duly corrected. I was thinking in terms of time dilation may be cast into further time dilation when going around the transformation a second time. Maybe there is another way to express this.

Please note that the Lorentz transformation is symmetrical, of course. Thus eq. (7) should read (with also corrected primed/unprimed quantities):

(x,t) = L(L(x,t,v),-v) = L(x',y',-v)

(x,t) = L(L(x,t,v),-v) = L(x',y',-v)
