This paper proposes a resolution of this issue by first showing the manner in which an illusion of light speed invariance occurs in two-way light speed measurement in the framework of a semi-classical absolute space theory. It then demonstrates a measurable variation of the one-way speed of light, which directly invalidates the postulate and confirms the existence of the preferred reference frame of the absolute space theory.
