If you are aware of an interesting new academic paper (that has been published in a peer-reviewed journal or has appeared on the arXiv), a conference talk (at an official professional scientific meeting), an external blog post (by a professional scientist) or a news item (in the mainstream news media), which you think might make an interesting topic for an FQXi blog post, then please contact us at forums@fqxi.org with a link to the original source and a sentence about why you think that the work is worthy of discussion. Please note that we receive many such suggestions and while we endeavour to respond to them, we may not be able to reply to all suggestions.

Please also note that we do not accept unsolicited posts and we cannot review, or open new threads for, unsolicited articles or papers. Requests to review or post such materials will not be answered. If you have your own novel physics theory or model, which you would like to post for further discussion among then FQXi community, then please add them directly to the "Alternative Models of Reality" thread, or to the "Alternative Models of Cosmology" thread. Thank you.

So what if the Electron contains a "space-like", singularity, and the Photon has a corrosponding "time-like" singularity?.."spacetime" as one, in the context of Einsteins theory of GR, would have continuos functional parimiters in Macro systems, whilst having discrete and non-local functional parimiters at the (planck-scale?).

In a macro domains, the fact there is continuous varying distance between structures, ie observers and locations permits a "spacetime" field of observation. The compacted domain of QM do not allow certain volumes to "share" locations, spacetime splits into separate and discontinous paths. If spacetime structures have a direction quantities, then if one squeezes them to a finite and compact volume, then, say the up-spin of a Photon, would be "overlapped" with its down spin state, they would reverse?

Entanglement shows this at quantum levels, then as the Electrons and Photons are the usual detected quantities needed for observational spacetime "reality", then one would expect there would be a "broken" or sperated spacetime at a certain finite limit, an Electron space singularity, and a Photon time singularity, moving away in the wrong directions?
