comment Electron Shell Configuration
Well stated, and my thanks for adding specificity (vs. my hand-wavy "a lot of approximations" being used).

comment Why can't my eye see itself in the mirror through polarizing 3D-glasses?
Good catch and exactly right on both points. The quarter-wave plates in front translate the two circular polarizations into the two linear polarizations, and the linear polarizers closer to your eyes then select between them.

comment Conservation of phase space volume in Rindler space-time
Intriguing... do you have any papers on your analysis so far? Also, just a random thought: time dilation relative to an unaccelerated observer also changes over time for acceleration. Since "hidden observers" can sneak into equations in surprisingly subtle ways, is it possible you have such a hidden unaccelerated observer implicit in you formalisms? (Even more random: time dilation vs phase space reductions: any connections?)

comment Conservation of phase space volume in Rindler space-time
To ask bluntly: You are using this approach to question certain aspects of the equivalence principle, yes? My reflex reaction was to say that under EP the phase space volumes at $t_1$ and $t_2$ must be equivalent. Or am I just badly misunderstanding your intent? More specifically: I don't see gravity changing phase space volumes over time, so I would not anticipate it for acceleration either.
