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 quantum Darwinism is a consequence from the Copenhagen interpretation of quantum mechanics. For instance, there are no superposition problem in the Bohmian mechanics and any transition of quantum to classical. Simply, if the mass of a particle is high enough that the quantum potential is negligible, the particle is described by the classical mechanics. It is nice that the coming year 2009 is dedicated to Darwin, which will certainly accelerate the discussions on the quantum Darwinism as...


basic frequency of quanta of space is a driving force of the evolution, space plays an active role into evolution of life that is an cosmic phenomena, life develops into entire universe


It may come as a surprise to many to see a proposed fundamental physical theory that employs a Darwinian process at its core. Isn't Darwinism biological? What is it doing in physics?

Lee Smolin also has a cosmological theory based on a Darwinian process: Cosmological Natural Selection.

Of course Natural Selection is the central organizing principal of Biology but there are also other Biological quasi-independent theories such as the Bayesian Brain that explain much of neurobiology...
