## Abstract

I will present a description of a modified version of what is known as the ?Wheeler-Feynman action-at-a-distance? formulation of relativistic electrodynamics, but devoid of advanced interaction and asymmetric aging. I will describe initial results of a study using this formulation to analyze time dilation experiments using muon decay which shows that this is a space-time perspective effect that does not contribute to asymmetric aging (the twin paradox).
