We try to speculate upon and explore the logic which guided Einstein into declaring his two postulates, as well as speculate and explore what those postulates mean, individually. This is a speculative paper, and it presumes that the reader has already read the relevant passages by Galileo, Newton, Einstein, Berkeley, and Poincare (Appendices one through five, respectively), my paper titled ?A Brief Overview of SRT?, and Einstein's book, ?Relativity.? The appendices provide information related to the justification of Einstein's first postulate, The Principle of Relativity.
