Abstract: The Oscillation Project with Emulsion-Tracking Apparatus (OPERA) experiment is regarded by some as an empirical confirmation of the special theory of relativity (STR). It is shown that this opinion is mistaken because STR cannot exclude superluminal velocities. Einstein’s derivation of the Lorentz transformation was based on a contradiction, which can
be reduced mathematically to + = -. His premise that the speed of light in a vacuum is constant, independent of the motion of its source, is self-contradicting. Hence, by the laws of mathematics, every inference drawn from it is arbitrary, which includes that the speed of light cannot be exceeded. This inference has also been empirically refuted through the results of certain experiments on quantum mechanics, which can only be explained by either admitting superluminal velocities or by admitting miracles (action at a distance). The problems of light cannot be solved at the level of mathematics, but only at the level of physics through a new theory explaining the properties of light by physical parameters. _ 2012 Physics Essays Publication.
