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.

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.

A photon may be considered as a disturbance in the objective reality of the void. What that reality is called makes no difference, except to those with prejudice against any model that states that the void is not a vacuum but must have substance.It is unknowable since we appear to have no information from it that travels across the Prime reality interface to inform our conceptualisation of it.

A disturbance in the objective reality of the void will only be detectable if it is able to...


It is clear that isolated systems do not exist in nature. Thus, the interaction between the target system and its environment always leads to decoherence. The traditional decoherence theory developed by Zeh, Zurek and others is based, however, on linear master equations. As a result, there is a time interval, where decoherence takes place. Recently it was demonstrated that the entropy (information) exchange between the system and its environment results in a nonlinear Schrodinger equation (see...


Plenty of alternative interpretations of the math of micro-physics. Bohmiam physics, for example, and not to mention Werner Hofer's re-evaluation of QM (called micro-dynamics): http://uk.arxiv.org/abs/quant-ph/9806066

I agree fully with prof. Hofer's remarks regarding the arbitrary assumption that defines the QM philosofy, but not necessary agree with all aspects of prof. Hofer's developed microdynamics.

Hofer on QM: "The particle wave has no intrinsic potential energy according...
