Measuring the One-Way Speed of Light

  •  Kenneth William Davies    


This paper describes a method for determining the one-way speed of light.

My thesis is that the one-way speed of light is NOT constant in a moving frame of reference, and that the one-way speed of light in any moving frame of reference is anisotropic, in that its one-way measured speed varies depending on the direction of travel of light relative to the direction of travel and velocity of the moving frame of reference.

Using the disclosed method for measuring the one-way speed of light, a method is proposed for how to use this knowledge to synchronize clocks, and how to calculate the absolute velocity and direction of movement of a moving frame of reference through absolute spacetime using the measured one-way speed of light as the only point of reference.
