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

The biggest myth physicists have about their abstract universe is that abstract light has an abstract linear constant speed when it is shot through a vacuum. Real light is the only real stationary substance in the real Universe.

Hi Joe!

Thank you for sharing your knowledge to the community, and taking your time to watch, write comments and rate each of the videos, I like your video, the only thing I would point out is that I would rather see it you talking and explaining it instead of reading it, overall I can tell you have a great appreciation for physics and sharing what you know, keep up the great attitude!

Sorry Joe,

I didn't enjoy the music much, and I hope you won't get into a copyright dispute, for airing those segments of silence in your musical score. There was an unfortunate copyright battle a few years back, when someone else tried that. In any case, this video doesn't do much for me, as a musical. But I must say your theory is unique.

I wish you luck getting published.

All the Best,
