If you are aware of an interesting new academic paper (that has been published in a peer-reviewed journal or has appeared on the arXiv), a conference talk (at an official professional scientific meeting), an external blog post (by a professional scientist) or a news item (in the mainstream news media), which you think might make an interesting topic for an FQXi blog post, then please contact us at forums@fqxi.org with a link to the original source and a sentence about why you think that the work is worthy of discussion. Please note that we receive many such suggestions and while we endeavour to respond to them, we may not be able to reply to all suggestions.

Please also note that we do not accept unsolicited posts and we cannot review, or open new threads for, unsolicited articles or papers. Requests to review or post such materials will not be answered. If you have your own novel physics theory or model, which you would like to post for further discussion among then FQXi community, then please add them directly to the "Alternative Models of Reality" thread, or to the "Alternative Models of Cosmology" thread. Thank you.

Video Description

Quantum mechanics is weird. Very weird. In the quantum world, particles can be in two places at once, and cats can be both dead and alive. People can tunnel through walls, and teleport themselves to wherever they want. But perhaps the most bizarre prediction of quantum mechanics is that we will all live forever! But how can this possibly be? Press the play button, and check it out!

Video Creator Bio

Whereas his left brain was trained as a theoretical scientist, his right brain prefers the piano. At work, Pieter hunts for (broken) symmetries and loves to dabble in the history and philosophy of science. He often gets stuck in another dimension, contemplating time travel and parallel universes, or thinking about ways to save Schrödinger's cat (maybe). He explores the world on foot, and takes life one cup of (Arabica) coffee at a time. Follow him on Twitter @PieterThyssen or at thelifeofpsi.com.

Excellent! Did you read Max Tegmark's discussion of the many worlds interpretation in "Our Mathematical Universe?" You did an excellent job of illustrating that point. Thank you!

If you can please vote on our 2 short videos, we would appreciate it very much:
