The recent discovery of the process/mechanism of the total conversion of mass to energy —a process that does not involve matter-antimatter interaction— has radically altered the theory of physical length contraction. It is argued that while atoms and molecules (and therefore also objects) undergo length contraction during aether-referenced motion the constituent fundamental particles themselves, on the other hand, do not! Fundamental particles actually undergo a strictly limited elongation. Based on the sound evidence and supporting theory that all elementary particles are configurations of photons, four supporting arguments are presented: (i) Particle elongation facilitates the conservation of its total intrinsic energy. (ii) The decrease of mass (as defined) becomes necessary with increased motion (with respect to aether). (iii) Elongation provides the key element in the mechanism of mass-to-energy conversion. A noninteraction-hundred-percent conversion (i.e., no particle-antiparticle annihilations is involved). (iv) The preclusion of the formation of singularity-type black holes, thus avoiding the associated infinity problems. Under the traditional view one cannot combine unrestricted length contraction and energy conservation —not in a realistic way. And for this very reason the long-standing rule has been that a mass particle/object can never attain lightspeed. And that rule, in turn, has led to a failure to understand the nature of the strangest objects of the Universe —Terminal neutron stars. The new interpretation overcomes this difficulty. The essential point being advanced is that Nature has a way for the total conversion of mass to energy. It accomplishes this by changing the gravitational environment —by subjecting “stationary” mass to lightspeed aether flow, compelling mass to undergo conversion, which requires length elongation.
