ABSTRACT: In this work the main conceptual errors that sequentially were introduced in the development of the Special Theory of Relativity (SR) are explained. A simple presentation of the Lorentz Transformations (LT) is given, within where it is emphasized that, by using an incomplete configuration, repeated by more than one hundred years, it leads to a first error of a chain of them, when it is assumed that the cross sectional components, in the movable inertial reference system, are invariant or not affected by its relative movement respect a fixed inertial system, on the basis of a presumed “postulate of isotropy “ that equals the referred moving components to those of the fixed inertial system. Making use of the general configuration of an inertial system moving on an inclined line relative to other fixed one, and by considering parallel axes between them, correct results for the transformations of distance, time and speed are obtained. These new transformations were called Vectorial Transformations of Lorentz (VLT). Based on these first corrections arose the definitions of the Local Transformations of Lorentz (LLT) which allowed as well to as much demarcate more complete the concepts of local time as those of local physical magnitudes. As a consequence of the referred first error previously indicated within SR, it was obtained an erroneous definition of the concept of relativistic mass
