The problem with Time is...
the science guys messed up Time.
The first mistake they made was trying to measure time...
Philosophers talk about time,
Science guys measure time, with clocks eh!
The mistake they made was to believe that
clocks are in any way affected by walking
towards or away from them.
Note that if clocks are not affected
by walking towards them, then the velocity
of light relative to you when you walk
towards the light must be c+v, not c eh!
Obviously you are no more a philosopher than Starfaker.
The question is not are clocks affected by your motion with respect to
them but rather is your PERCEPTIOIN of their readings affected.
Of course clocks APPEAR to run slower if you move away from them,
and the APPEAR to run faster when you move towards them. This is
the well understood DOPPLER EFFECT, and if you account for it correctly
then of course you do not require any relativistic time dilation.

so c+v Is ALWAYS totally stupid and wrong, wrong, wrong.
No! If clocks are not affected by walking towards them, then
c+v is INEVITABLE eh!
A<-------- L m ------------->B
As viewed from stationary (laboratory) frame:
Speed of light = L / (TB-TA) = c
As viewed from frame of reference in which laboratory is moving to the
right at v m/s.
Light must travel an extra distance = v*(TB-TA)
This being the distance B moves as the light travels from A to B.
Therefore speed of light as viewed from frame of reference in which
laboratory is moving to the right at v m/s = c + v
