Rescuing Reality
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.

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

In Search of a Quantum Spacetime
Finding the universe's wavefunction could be the key to understanding the emergence of reality.

Collapsing Physics: Q&A with Catalina Oana Curceanu
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.

Dropping Schrödinger's Cat Into a Black Hole
Combining gravity with the process that transforms the fuzzy uncertainty of the quantum realm into the definite classical world we see around us could lead to a theory of quantum gravity.

I believe this sentence:"Today, it is thought that a universe, such as our own, is born into an energy state known as a "false vacuum," called 'false' because, unlike the 'true' vacuum in which our universe abides, it is

unstable." icorrect?, it is stating a "Universe such as our own" eminates from a "FALSE-VACUUM" energy state, and then states that our Universe is abiding within a "TRUE-VACUUM" ?

Which is it?..either way the initial inflation period, determines a...

Hi Richard,

I like the analogy of a loaf although I use the idea of a whole pie instead, but I would argue there is an obvious way of slicing the loaf or the pie. Since we invariably are slicing the whole of all universes in the multiverse, and inline with Tegmark's idea the universe is ultimately a mathematical system, I will call the whole zero, and think of it as the ground state. We can most obviously slice zero in half, thus dividing apart all positive numbers from all negative...
