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.

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 dilution drives post-Big Bang inflation, matter-antimatter asymmetry, left-handed Weak interaction, and imposes biological homochirality. L-amino acids (meat) and D-sugars (wood) cancel a parity Nordtvedt effect. Photons and achiral or racemic mass distributions are inert.

Detect a vacuum left foot with a pair of shoes. Atoms self-similarly array in 240 crystallographic space groups. 11 pairs of enantiomorphic space groups are themselves chiral. Three pairs exclude racemic and opposite chirality screw axes.

A parity Eotvos experiment opposes chemically identical, opposite parity, centimeter diameter, single crystal quartz test masses - space groups P3(1)21 and P3(2)21. Will spacetime geometry prove asymmetric toward test mass chiral geometry? If so, THERE'S YOUR PROBLEM.

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...
