**Abstract:**

- What is the meaning of special relativity? Where is special relativity originated from? What are the consequences of special relativity if it were right? How should special relativity be understood? - What are thought experiments? What is the danger of thought experiments?

I think you should better say:

Hence, every inertial reference frame OBSERVES that the other inertial

frames' masses are increasing, their length contracting and their time

dilating. This is NOT self-contradicting. This is what special relativity is.

That you may not believe it or not like it is no proof it is invalid.

Einstein used the property of the light speed (constant for every observer)

to derive his theory of special relativity.

Light is not used for observation, the "observation" is (mathematically) direct,

which is clear from the Lorentz Transformation. You can add the observation

effects (using light signals) to the transformations and then you find the

relativistic Doppler effects.
