Because, however, the angles of incidence and reflection of the light beam L0 on the two mirrors Ì1 and Ì2 are very small, it follows that the number of points Á1, Á2, Á3,…Áí-1, Áí
is very large.
As a consequence of the above, the mirror Ì1 will be lit on the left of the straight line B΄C΄ and the mirror Ì2 will also be lit on the left of straight line BC, Fig.1.
Obviously, the part of mirror Ì1 to the right of the straight line B΄C΄ will remain dark, as will the part of mirror Ì2 on the right of the straight line BC
In Fig. 2, D are the parts that are lit.
Therefore, using a photographic camera F or a variety of photometers, we can ascertain whether the mirrors Ì1 and Ì2 have been lit, as described above.
Note: If we now reversed the direction of velocity õ of the experimental device, then the lit areas of mirrors Ì1 and Ì2
would also be reversed. Meaning, the bright parts would be dark, and the dark parts would be bright.
By performing the “parallel mirrors” experiment (as described above) we can ascertain whether or not ether does exist in Nature, and from the result we will know, once and for all, which of the two theories is correct: the Theory of Relativity, or the Electrogravitational Theory.
In addition, the “parallel
mirrors” experiment, Fig. 1, can be performed when the whole rectangular parallelepiped A = (12345678) is made of a transparent solid or liquid material (e.g. glass, water, etc), with a high index of refraction n (n > 1), where the light beam L0 is reflected on the two parallel surfaces (1234) and (5678).
The purpose of the above is to give us a greater initial angle , i.e.:
