Quantum in Context
An untapped resource could provide the magic needed for quantum computation—and perhaps even open the door to time travel.

Spot the Difference to Reveal Exotic Particles
Questioning the symmetrization postulate of quantum mechanics and the notion that electrons are indistinguishable could reveal whether hypothetical new particles exist.

Life's Quantum Crystal Ball
Does the ability to predict the future—perhaps with quantum help—define the fundamental difference between living and inanimate matter?

The Quantum Truth Seeker
Watching particles fly through an interferometer might help to unveil higher-order weirdness behind quantum theory.

Quantifying Occam
Is the simplest answer always the best? Connecting Medieval monks to computational complexity, using the branch of mathematics known as category theory.

You can not have disorder without stuff to make the mess.Whether at home or out in the expanse of the universe. Maximum amount of separate matter gives maximum disorder.As the universe develops more and more energy is converted to mass energy. More matter is made. However the matter is also drawn together along the 4th spatio-energetic dimension into larger objects and structures.

There may be, some range of position along the 4th spatio-energetic dimension, where the universe could be...

Proud daddy, cute kid. That aside I could not finish reading the article as it all just sounds too wrong.

Entropy is not the answer here it is a red herring.

Things do not fall up and put themselves together because all matter loosing potential energy. (The potential energy of the matter is equivalent to its 4th dimensional position. So it always takes up the most afore 4th dimensional position it can.)

The once separate vase has lost potential energy and has now become a...

At the Universe's end phase, there will be less and less interacting particles, there will be a resulting low-entropic signature. The early Universe's low entropy will almost certainly be of similar make up, a closed system with just a few "large" symetric particles, has the same entropy value as a closed system with a similar few micro particles?

A box containing 10 super sized particles, and a box contianing 10 fractional particles can be in entropic equilibrium, but can also evolve...
