    In a nutshell.

    Mentally, Lorentz would position himself as an observer in the absolute ether. Giving a flashbulb some absolute motion, Lorentz would mark a flash of light to a point location in absolute space.

    Einstein would position himself as an observer comoving with the flashbulb in some uniform motion and keep the flash of light pinned to the flashbulb.

    If absolute space, how does one mark a flash point location with a "comoving" observer pinned to the flashbulb?"
