Abstract. A number of experiments into the behavior of light gave results which have no satisfactory explanation. These tests proved that light signals, sent in opposite directions around various rotating circuits, including the Earth at any latitude, do not return at the same instant. A new explanation is proposed for these test results. From this, it follows that time and distance are absolute, not relative. A new theory on the behavior of light is developed; this postulates that light, generated upon the Earth, travels with the Earth on its orbital path around the Sun, but does not follow the motion of the Earth as it spins on its axis. The speed of light is thence shown not to be, in all circumstances, independent of the speed of its source. This is substantiated by a vary accurate Michelson & Morley test, which yielded a difference between the East-West and the North-South directions. It is postulated that light, generated upon the Earth, travels with the Earth's gravitational field. The behavior of neutrons and electrons is shown to be similar to that of light.
