The Quantum Agent
Investigating how the quantum measurement process might be related to the emergence of intelligence, agency and free will.

First Things First: The Physics of Causality
Why do we remember the past and not the future? Untangling the connections between cause and effect, choice, and entropy.

Can Time Be Saved From Physics?
Philosophers, physicists and neuroscientists discuss how our sense of time’s flow might arise through our interactions with external stimuli—despite suggestions from Einstein's relativity that our perception of the passage of time is an illusion.

Thermo-Demonics
A devilish new framework of thermodynamics that focuses on how we observe information could help illuminate our understanding of probability and rewrite quantum theory.

Gravity's Residue
An unusual approach to unifying the laws of physics could solve Hawking's black-hole information paradox—and its predicted gravitational "memory effect" could be picked up by LIGO.

The ability of thought to describe or reconfigure sense is ultimately dependent upon the extent to which thought is similar to sense.

Dreams make thought more like sensory experience in general (including gravity and electromagnetism). Moreover, dreams involve a fundamental integration and spreading of being and experience at the mid-range of feeling between thought and sense. The dream is the fundamental unification of gravity and electromagnetism.

I trust that this was helpful...


Mathematical analysis of a physics problem requires data.

If there is no data there can be no analysis, and no solution.

Experimental observation supplies data. This requires activation of the biological senses or artificial detector. The sense organs or detector are at the Prime reality interface between objective and subjective reality.

If information crosses the interface so that it may be processed or analysed, then there may be knowledge derived from that information...


Gödel Esher Bach and .... Heisenberg? Gödel's incompleteness theorem has nothing to do (does not even give a hint) with the "uncertainty" relations of Heisenberg, and has nothing to with the limited "constant" speed of TEM waves, bla bla bla ...

Gödel's theorem implies that mathematics is infinite (always possible to add new axioms to existing formal systems). Physics is more or less applied mathematics, so a subset of all math can be used to express physics laws. Since there is no...
