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.

I was wondering if you could be clearer with your description of the 4th spatial dimension in your model. The reason I asked is because I deal with a similar 4th spatial concept in my theory but my theory keeps time (i.e. past and future realms) as well as includes the many-worlds interpretation. I know Lisa Randall got tired of compactification of extra dimensions and came up with a 4th spatial dimension in which our 3D universe exists, so I was just wondering how yours is...

The multi-verse idea is philosophy. As are ideas of existential temporal realms, past present and future. IMO They are ideas formed from misinterpretation of observations. These models are transformed into unshakeable beliefs for some people.

IMO The dimensions of space can be observed in the matter of the universe and its structure and deduced from the behaviour observed, including gravity. Assuming that matter is distributed across 4 spatial dimensions and that Subatomic particles can...

The comprehensiveness and consistency of both intention and concern are central to our life, extensiveness of experience, growth, and consciousness. The integrated extensiveness of being and experience go hand in hand -- as in the dream and waking experiences. Emotion that is comprehensive and balanced advances consciousness; moreover, desire consists of both intention and concern, thereby including interest as well -- and that is important. Our range and extensiveness of feeling also has to do...
