The special theory of relativity (STR) does not describe physical laws pertaining to objective reality. It is a theory that predicts and explains the values of physical quantities measured using two synchronized clocks. When developing the STR, Einstein asserted that there is no need to introduce concepts such as the ether or velocity vectors, and he later denied their existence. However, through a discussion from the standpoint of real existence, this paper points out that there are cases where there is a velocity vector attached to an inertial system, and it presents an equation determining that vector's size.
