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.

Lockdown Lab Life
Grounded physicists are exploring the use of online and virtual-reality conferencing, and AI-controlled experiments, to maintain social distancing. Post-pandemic, these positive innovations could make science more accessible and environmentally-friendly.

Is Causality Fundamental?
Untangling how the human perception of cause-and-effect might arise from quantum physics, may help us understand the limits and the potential of AI.

Building Agency in the Biology Lab
Physicists are using optogenetics techniques to make a rudimentary agent, from cellular components, which can convert measurements into actions using light.

Think Quantum to Build Better AI
Investigating how quantum memory storage could aid machine learning and how quantum interactions with the environment may have played a role in evolution.

Outside the Box
A proposed quantum set-up that could predict your game-playing strategy resurrects Newcomb’s classic quiz show paradox.

Video Description

A Physicist takes the future of solar energy to a completely different level! He makes an incredible speculation about what humans might be up to 100, 000 years from now.

Video Creator Bio

I'm an aspiring filmmaker who is incredibly passionate about education, specifically higher education and how it's going to evolve over time. I've spent the last few months interviewing students and professors, trying to find out what they're working on. I came across Dr. Achim Kempf's profile. After chatting with him for a few minutes and learning about his work in the field of Mathematical Physics, I was completely blown away.

Hi Dr Achim

Some may find it ridiculous to me its exhilirating i love your concept,in this years essay contest i wrote about it here is the the link-,though it didnt even find any place amongst all the entries.I find your idea too logical to even be ignored.

I have a simple video entry on the geometry of the universe which you can kindly take your time to vote for here- i am vote for you

Hi Achim,

I'm back from Castiglioncello. I am happy to see you again, in this marvelous your video. Your ideas are very amazing, especially to use a neutrino cannon to stimulate the nuclear fusion and transform the sun into a spaceship! Here are the links to my videos, and if you have time, I would appreciate if you will watch and rate them: The puzzle of quantum reality and Can a black hole keep a secret?. And here is my son's. What's your other video?

Best regards,
