What is the physical meaning of relativity of simultaneity? But, the most important question that is addressed in this book is what is the nature of spacetime? or, equivalently, what is the dimensionality of the world at the macroscopic level?Develops answers to these questions via a thorough analysis of relativistic effects and explicitly asking whether the objects involved in those effects are three-dimensional or four-dimensional.Discusses the implication of the result (this analysis clearly shows that if the world and the physical objects were three-dimensional, none of the kinematic relativistic effects and the experimental evidence supporting them would be possible) for physics, philosophy, and our entire world view are discussed.
