The Cosmic Membrane theory states that the space in which the cosmic microwave background radiation has no dipole is identical with Newton’s absolute space. Light propagates in this space only. In contrast, in a moving inertial frame of reference light propagation is in-homogeneous, i.e. it depends on the direction. Therefore, the derivation of the dilation of time in the sense of Einstein’s special relativity theory, i.e., together with the derivation of the length contraction under the constraint of constant cross dimensions, loses its plausibility, and one has to search for new physical foundations of the relativistic contraction and dilation of time. The Cosmic Membrane theory states also that light paths remain always constant independent on the orientation and the speed of the moving inertial frame of reference. Effects arise by the dilation of time. We predict a long term effect of the Kennedy-Thorndike experiment, but we show also that this effect is undetectable with today’s means. The reason is that the line width of the light sources hides the effect. The use of lasers, cavities and Fabry-Pérot etalons do not change this. We propose a light clock of special construction that could indicate Newton’s absolute time t0 nearly precisely.
