WF-98765, WF-98766 and inertial systems

What I couldn’t imagine was that I would be visited by WF-98766, another wavefront.

After that night thinking about what WF-98765 had revealed to me, I couldn’t help but remind the observers and try to guess what each of them imagined about what the others were experiencing, the other inertial observers, and why not, the wavefronts.

How do we measure speed? We determine a point of origin, a point of destination, and the time it takes for the mobile object to get from the point of origin to the point of destination. Both points are fixed in space, the distance between them cannot vary. If this were not the case, the measurement of speed would be wrong. Michelson and Morley made measurements with an L-shaped system, one of whose arms had the direction of motion of the Earth around the Sun, and the other arm was perpendicular to the first. The measurement of the speed of light was identical along both arms.

But our experiment of the ships touching their ends is somehow different from the Michelson and Morley experiment. In our case, measurements of the speed of light are made in the same direction, not in perpendicular directions. As we are dealing with the history of WF-98765 and WF-98766, the point of origin is that in which its birth is generated and the point of destination is the centers of the spaceships. WF-98765 and WF-98766 see themselves in a…
