Search FQXi

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 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

In presented animated geometry of abyss and source, independent of scale, each unique radius of present tends to equilibrium absorbing its future and transmitting its past. Hence, the laws of motion arise. The cause and the consequence of that dynamics is constantly accelerating expansion of the system. In any dynamic position of that growing vortex, dilated space over dilated time measures linear flow of time, constant acceleration (linear propagation of space), and constant referent speed. From referent one, the unique and dynamic now and here, front at which the beginning-less past and the endless future meet, reflection point where information transforms to memory, memory to information, velocity to its polarity - mass, mass to its polarity - velocity... the system measures constant radius. Thus, the system exists. Mathematical description of presented geometry can be red at: The background sound is a clip from the soundtrack “Symphonies of planets” recorded by NASA’s Voyager.

Beautiful and mesmerizing video! Your evolving shape reminded me of the past and future light cones of relativity, and in the purple central space with orbiting planets, I could imagine the plane of the present... If there was a special category for art/physics synergy in this contest, your video should be in first place!


P.S. If you have a chance to view my trilogy of videos, "This Is Physics", and leave comments and ratings, it would be quite appreciated! In part 1 of the trilogy, I present the evolution from the Ptolemaic system to the Copernican one... although in a much less artistic way than that you did in one of your other entries in this contest!

I rated your video in July - I only wish I could make it a screesaver! So beautiful.

If you get a moment, can you please rate our 2 short videos? We would be very grateful:


Thanks so much,

Schatzie Dudee and kids
