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 think all the quantum puzzles can be easily understood by examining some certain shared a priori-assumptions that make it possible for ourselves to comprehend nature.

But before i come to my point, i must explain first what i mean with my first sentence here. This first sentence would be somewhat circular if one ignores a crucial fact about the very nature of quantum physics. It would be circular because starting that some of our a priori-assumptions in understanding nature could...

Talk of 3 dimensional objects able to contain themselves. The Klein bottle was given as an example of an object that partially contains itself, but not completely. How about the child's water snake toy? This is a hollow water filled soft rubber tube like object.With a single wall that forms both outside and inside. When squeezed the inside rubber is squeezed out and becomes the outside and the outside is pulled in to become the inside rubber.when squeezed in this way it can be difficult to hold...

On the link a proof of the physical law W=n/e is given. This physical law proves that the quantum physical state-space and mathematical state-space from which it emerges are completely independent. In general, the collision probability of a mathematical state-space with n equiprobable states is (1-1/n)^n=1/e. Because this physical law proves that W/n
