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

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.

So these two men get along well and enjoy a cup of coffee together. This article took a long while to get going but in the end was quite interesting.

I agree that there are problems with mathematics but to throw logic out of the door to fix it sounds a bit extreme. If it just boils down to making the mathematics more flexible that is a different matter but picking and choosing when to be flexible and when not is a bit arbitrary.It doesn't sound right to just pick the mathematics that...


Physics postulates isotropic vacuum for Einstein's elevator (GR) and angular momentum conservation (QFT) through Noether's theorem. Parity is the only non-Noetherian external symmetry. Physics choked on parity (Yang and Lee). Any symmetric body gaplessly dissects into homochiral halves (La Coupe du Roi; Ashtekar and GR). Quantized gravitation is not predictive. Therefore...

A massed sector chiral pseudoscalar vacuum background renders GR and QFT incomplete. Pseudoscalar field...
