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.

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.

Could Mind Forge the Universe?
Objective reality, and the laws of physics themselves, emerge from our observations, according to a new framework that turns what we think of as fundamental on its head.

Dark energy may be explained by the simple misunderstanding of the relation between redshift and scale factor.

In it is shown how a new relation

1+z = (a(0)/a(t))^2 ..........(1)

can give a value for omega(matter) of 0.25 as in WMAP and match the supernovae data too.

John Hunter.

Regarding the size of space, dark energy, astronomical observations, and the relationship between gravity and electromagnetism, the following is helpful.

Astronomical observations are interactive creations of thought to a significant extent. This is inseparable from making a larger space smaller (and a smaller space larger), as in the dream. This explains much. Comparatively, dreams make thought more like sensory experience in general, thereby reducing the OVERALL (or generally)...
