Could giant sea swells help explain how the macroscopic world emerges from the quantum microworld? (Image credit: MIT News)

A "retrocausal" rewrite of physics, in which influences from the future can affect the past, could solve some quantum quandaries—saving Einstein's view of reality along the way.

Figuring out if A causes B should help to write the rulebook for quantum physics.

Finding the universe's wavefunction could be the key to understanding the emergence of reality.

Tests of a rival to quantum theory, taking place in the belly of the Gran Sasso d'Italia mountain, could reveal how the fuzzy subatomic realm of possibilities comes into sharp macroscopic focus.

Keep my PC running fast and efficiently.

I have searched for and tired many different types of scanners to keep my PC running fast and efficiently. Many of them are similar when it comes to picking up the same types of viruses but there is a big difference when it comes to price. Orbasoft Antispyware is one of the best that I’ve used so far and it’s even cheaper than some of the better known scans like Norton and similar scanners.

One can relate the expansion to negative and positive gravity, out of exactly positive and negative vacuum?

If one takes the zero quantity to extremes, even in mathematical terms?..for instance the ten plus one (10+1) numbers that equate to ten plus 1(zero) dimensions:10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1 ,0

now mathematically we can relate the numbers to positive and negative, or to the number theory relating to specifically "odd or even". Thus when one folows :

10-even-9-odd-8-even......
