The ellipsoids described in the following are inspired from the “holodiagram”, used for evaluations in holographic interferometry. This diagram is based on equations that are almost exactly those of special relativity with the only difference that the static separation of the emitter (A) and the observer (B) in holography is substituted by the dynamic separation of relativity (velocity multiplied by time).

(B) is travelling past stationary (A). At that time (B) emits a pulse of light resulting in that he finds himself in a sphere of light the centre of which appears stationary to him. However, at the same time also (A) finds himself in the stationary centre of the same sphere. How is that possible? Our conclusion is that (A) and (B) are at the focal points of the same ellipsoid. This fact is however hidden to the two observers which has been explained mathematically.

When (B) uses this ellipsoid to measure the stationary world everything in the direction of his velocity appears contracted to the inverted proportion of the elongation of his Sphere of observation. The same is the situation for (A) when measuring (B).

The Sphere of Observation is seen from scattering particles in space. When the Sphere of light just reaches the observer, the sphere of observation is deformed into an ellipsoid and the very first light arrives in the form of such a high eccentricity that it simply represents a line of light pointed at the point of observation. Thus explaining the double nature of light, wave and ray.
