The physical meaning of the Lorentz transformations is explained by deriving them (and the corresponding pseudo- Euclidean geometry) as transformations on a set of physical observables (or ’information space’) obtained by observers in inertial reference frames equipped with frequency (i.e., unified time-length) standards.
