Einstein's Contribution to Physics in Understanding Nature
In response to Relativity Fraud: The Complicity of Historians and Philosophers, Paramahamsa Tewari from India, inventor of what is termed the Space Power Generator, has sent a short piece on Einstein's contribution to physics in understanding nature.

Tewari confirms the limit of light waves' propagation velocity and the invariance of that velocity for moving observers, saying that Einstein got the right result, but for the wrong reasons.
Tewari is also the originator of the Space Vortex Theory, which I reported on in a previous article.
Here is Tewari's short essay:

Einstein's contribution to physics in understanding nature
Einstein in his Special Theory of Relativity (STR) postulated that Galilean relativity, as per which the laws of motion were not affected by uniform movement, applies to all physical laws including electromagnetism and optics too. He also postulated that the light velocity is invariant to all inertial systems with a defined reflection procedure to measure the velocity. These postulates, though apparently contradictory, lead to some profound laws of physics (of which Einstein would not have been aware) when analyzed with a new concept of light-- the light produced following annihilation of an electron and a positron (discussed in detail elsewhere), provided space is postulated to be a mass less, nonmaterial fluid medium (ether) with respect to which light is transmitted, unlike STR's presupposition of empty and inert space without assigning a velocity vector to any point of space (STR).
In a ray of light, conventionally, all points constituting the ray are considered luminous. Reflection of a light-point in a ray when it meets a stationary or moving mirror is accepted as instantaneous. Similarly, the center of a photon moving at the speed of light with respect to its source strikes a mirror and is believed to have instantaneous reflection, whether the mirror is stationary or moving relative to the source. Now consider a wave motion of a single spherical shell of light with wavelength λ (radial width of the shell) in fluid space medium (ether), transmitting symmetrically around the source at speed c relative to the medium. On meeting a stationary mirror, the wave front of the light-shell will be reflected instantaneously at an instant say t1 while the wave tail will be reflected at a different instant t2. That is, unlike the instantaneous reflections from a mirror in the cases of a ray of light or a photon, a shell of light has a duration t1 - t2 required for reflection, but this aspect is generally overlooked. This mistake is the root cause for misinterpretation of Sagnac's experiments in which the speed of light is shown to be non invariant (explained later) in different frames of reference.
Suppose S is a source of light that produces spherical shells of light of constant wave length λ successively without any time gap between the tail- end of one shell and the front of the next shell (Fig. 1). (This suggests that light has a discrete structure where discreteness arises due to independent successive light shells rather than corpuscular or photon like structure.) An observer O (believing in the applicability of universal time for all) standing on the ground will receive say f nos. of shells in one second which he defines as the frequency of the light. Let him measure the two instants t1 and t2 at which the front and the tail end of a single shell interact with his eyes. He will compute speed of light within the wave length relative to the fluid-space as: c = λ / (t1- t2). In unit time, O will receive 1 / (t1 - t2) nos. of shells which is the frequency f and with these he writes the equation: c = f λ where c is the velocity at which light effect (shell of light) transmits in space and relative to it--the fundamental property of fluid space medium.
Now, if O moves at velocity v towards S, his velocity relative to the wave front of the shell will be c + v and this is also the velocity of the shell's front passing over him, opposite to his direction of motion. The whole wavelength λ will now pass over him in a shorter time duration λ / (c + v) compared to λ / c when he was standing and was stationary in space. Since he has measured the velocity of light transmission in space, which being the fundamental property of space is independent of the observer's motion, during the time λ / (c + v) the shell will transmit in space up to a length [λ / (c + v)] c, that is, λ c / (c + v) which, as per O, is the new wave length (explained further pictorially). Also, the inverse of the time λ / (c + v) is (c + v) / λ that is the nos. of shells passed over O in unit time, which is the frequency of light now. The observer O notices that the product of the new wave length and the new frequency: [λ c / (c + v)] x (c + v) / λ] is still c. Thus, for a moving observer towards a light source, frequency is increased and wavelength is proportionately decreased such that their product still remains c. Similarly an observer moving away from a source will find decrease in frequency and increase in wavelength and their product will still be c, the same for a stationary observer.
In Fig. 2, the observer's position at the time t1 coinciding with the position of the wave front of the light-shell is shown. If O remains standing, as said before, the whole wavelength λ will pass over him during time λ / c. But since O is moving at velocity v in the direction opposite to the shell, when he reaches the wave tail of the shell at time t2, only the length L2 of the wavelength has passed over to the right of the observer's position t1, as shown in the figure by the position of the light shell shown at the time t2. The observer starts his time measuring device at position t1 and stops it at position t2 and during this period the full wavelength λ does not have time enough to transmit to the left of the position t1. The observer thus finds, as concluded earlier, increased frequency and proportionate decrease in the wavelength when he moves opposite to the light shell.
In the well known Sagnac experiment a light beam is split into two halves and reflected through mirrors, travels around closed identical paths in opposite directions. The split beams are combined again in a detector to examine interference patterns. When the apparatus is rotated it produces shift in interference fringes as a function of the angular velocity of rotation and thereby leading to the conclusion that the velocities of light in the two paths are different. What is not taken note of is that the reflecting mirrors that are in rotation change the wavelength and frequency of the light beams as discussed above and consequently shift in fringes appear.
The conclusion is that the velocity of light relative to the fluid space medium is the same for moving as well as stationary observers when the most fundamental nature of light is recognized and used for analysis. That being the case it is concluded that both, length-contraction and time-dilation of STR are certainly erroneous concepts.
Einstein, in his postulates, has been unwittingly led to the true behavior of the most fundamental nature of light.
The limitation imposed on the material motion in space only up to the speed of light (STR) led to the writer to adopt a more generalized postulate that the medium of mass less fluid space itself breaks down in its flow at a limiting angular rotation (fluid-space circulation) and using this spatial property, electron's creation and matter in general have been explained, and basic equations on mass and charge have been theoretically derived. Explanations to all the properties and observed behavior of electron, derivation of the known universal constants and fields, discovering new spatial fields in nuclear/ atomic structure and also around cosmic bodies, give authenticity to the space vortex structure of electron.
Einstein is right that no material motion can exceed the speed of light with the qualification that light transmits in fluid space and its speed is taken relative to space.
Einstein's concept is erroneous in "time-dilation" and in ignoring the existence and interaction with fluid-ether in space.
Light speed is the highest speed and will be found to be invariant in all the reference frames provided the speed within a single wavelength is theoretically analyzed and experiments like Sagnac's are repeated for confirmation on the changes to wavelength and frequency by reflection from the rotating mirrors.
Einstein's explanation on photoelectric effect which led to the photon-nature of light is also erroneous as explained in detail in writer's works [1, 2].
