Help others by sharing your knowledge Having derived his differential equation and subse uent tau function based on light moving in both directions, he then substitutes  for t  an expression for time that is valid only for one light direction. This creates a transform formula that could be valid only for one direction. Substituting the opposite direction expression is just as invalid, and results in a diff erent transform for x to x'.  At one point, Einstein attains a formula for what we'll call X', the transformed x; it is based on the tau equation he got from from his differential equation: X' = c*tau = ac(tvx'/(ccvv)). He then returns to the time arguments of his unknown tau functions, where he had t=x'/(cv). He substitutes this expression into the X' formula above, to get: X' = accx'/(ccvv). Remembering that Einstein's model, his unknown tau functions, his differential equation, and resultant tau function are all about light going BOTH directions, we see that using the time expression for just one light direction is an error, and time in the other direction, t=x'/(c+v), is just as valid,  which is to say not at all valid. The algebra works out just a bit differently: X' = ac(x'/(c+v)vx'/(ccvv)). = ac(x'(cv)vx')/(ccvv) = ac(cx'vx'vx')/(ccvv) = ac(cx'2vx')/(ccvv). QED. Einstein's derivation of the x' transform is invalid by reduction to the absurd; the transform depends on the direction of the light movement in the time term substituted for t in the X'=c*tau equation, an absolute violation of the principles of Special Relativity. It is one thing to realize that an expression in one case differs from the other, but a very different thing to let your one and only transform formula's derivation depend on an arbitrary choice of just one light direction.
