during any interaction, the total energy before the interaction before the interection is the same as the total energy after the interaction
conservation of energy

the speed of light c is a universal constant - it has the same value, regerdless of the motion of the platform from which it is observed, in effect the translation between distance and time units is the same for everybody
Einstein's second postulate
