Deriving SR from QM
In the standing still frame, links that link local environments (such as cells or dominoes) to neighboring local environments of the same moment, are changed to different links, when being in the moving frame. In fact thatís all there is to sr, changing links between the domino's of spacetime.
In the x-t diagram (the spacetime diagram), when accelerating, the angle of the space axis, the row of now moments, tilts. Imagine driving a car along a straight road (the space axis) and imagine the time axis upward directed, from you to the zenith. When accelerating, the tilting of the space axis then is like the engine bonnet of the front of your car coming up, blinding sight.
There is a clue to the angle of the tilt. The tilt is such that the speed of light remains a constant,
c = 3 * 10^8 m/s. The Lorentz transformations are derived using this clue.
But it seems to me that there still is needed a force to tilt the angle.
And I wonder what force that is. Is it a particle, the photon, arriving at the local environment, locally making a choice out of a heap of superpositions?
(Which is half there is to quantum mechanics. The other half is the merging of local environments in superposition that have become indistinguishable again.)
Or is the solution somewhere else? The Fourier transformation can transform the wavefunction of a photon of low energy and high uncertainty of place into a photon of high energy and low uncertainty of place. It is this process that shape or, as to speak, mold the uncertainty relation of Heisenberg.
A low energy photon can be transformed into a high energy photon by speeding up towards to it. The only thing changing is you, your speed relative to the photon. The photon itself remains untouched and unaffected. The Lorentz transformation then transforms the low energy photon into the high energy photon.
Somehow the Fourier transformation and the Lorentz transformation are the same. The relativistic Doppler equation somehow can be rewritten as a Fourier transform frequency formula.
I am not going to do that. Mathematics has never been my strongest point.
