But you're explicitly programming things like fusion in, rather than letting them emerge.

Its all integer arithmetic… in fact, it removes the need for any event timers in the system; it runs as a simple and pure finite series equation.
You need to prove to me that your simple little program has something to do with reality. If you prove that your program predicts a global, absolute time, you have proven that your model does not match reality.

I saw some messy, poorly formatted VB-esque pseudocode and made some attempt to decipher it, but saw no reason for it to give any useful results.

YOU DON’T NEED TO WAIT, I will show you EVERYTHING right here, and RIGHT NOW. OK?
To clarify, the following is meant as a disproof of relativity?

The heart of the paradox is the question of the speed of the train being added onto the speed of light. Does this occur or not? YES OR NO?
Quite conclusively no. This was a question early on, with the idea of the emitter's velocity being added in being called the ballistic theory of light or emitter theory. It was raised as an explanation for the null result from the Michelson-Morley experiment. However, it does not fit reality. Light from binary stars would be coming toward us faster on one half of the orbit than on the other half, overtaking light emitted at other parts of the orbit and smearing the image of the stars out across their orbits. We don't see this, we see clearly separated stars.

When the light hits the mountain up ahead, will RiderDude see it before RoadsideDude?

If the answer were yes, then that would explain it; the velocity of the train was added onto the velocity of light, so RiderDude watches the light hit the mountain before RoadsideDude.

If the answer is no, then how can this happen??? ???
The light was emitted as the train passed the roadside observer while approaching the mountain? Well, the rider will clearly see the reflected light first, as he will be between the mountain and the stationary observer. The stationary observer might even see the rider's silhouette against the mount.

We do? How can what happen?

Lets call the speed of light “C” and assume it’s a fixed, pre-determined number, and in this example universe we’re operating in, let’s make it 20,000 miles per second.

· Speed of light: 20,000 miles per second
· Speed of the train: 3 miles per second
· Location of Flash: Mile marker 0
· One RiderDude is on-board the moving train
· One RoadsideDude is standing still on the side of the tracks
· Both Dudes are at mile marker 0 the instant of the flash

OK?

12:00:00… At the moment of flashing the lamp:
· RiderDude: The light is right there in front of him.

· RoadsideDude: The light is also right there in front of him.
12:00:01… One second after flashing the lamp:
And here is the paradox; should we add the speed of the train onto the speed of light flowing away from the train’s (and RiderDude’s) point of perception?
No.

I can’t describe the problem any clearer than this. If you still don’t understand after re-reading, try another sport.
You left a few things out. Like all the calculations that didn't make the above incorrect assumption. The speed of light is constant as measured by all observers.

Try to pay attention for a few pages, OK?

Heck, the explanation is 10 times longer than the code itself.

I’m implementing everything in terms of GC / tick. There are not fixed speeds, everything is done in relation only to one thing, and that is the maximum resolution of the system: WordSize (the max. numerical limitation is 2**WordSize)
This doesn't appear to answer anything.
