It is shown in this article how it is possible to calculate so‐called special relativistic phenomena maintaining classical conceptions of relativity, using the substantiated conception that the velocity of electromagnetic radiation is determined by the minimum energy principle. In this context the characteristics of time and space get a different interpretation than that of relativistic physics.
