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.

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.

Thermo-Demonics
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.

Video Description

A fun cartoon depiction of the particles involved in the Standard Model, with quarks, leptons, their antiparticles and also the force carriers (including the hypothesized but not observed graviton). Each particle/force carrier is shown as a cartoon character and given a brief introduction, and there are animations of some of their roles. The video is primarily aimed at a young audience but should be interesting for anyone new to the Standard Model! It is narrated by the 'Down Quark'who lives in a helium atom. The characters are each colourful and different to aid in distinguishing and remembering them.

Video Creator Bio

I am a 15 year old student interested in physics. I have never formally studied particle physics but am looking forward to it as part of the coming school year's physics AS level course. I also enjoy making animations, and it's been fun to combine physics with something creative!

This animation is totally adorable. Nicely done. Will want to update it with a Higgs!

Very nice and entertaining! I really enjoyed the cute particles you made! If you have time, I would appreciate if you will watch and rate my videos The puzzle of quantum reality and Can a black hole keep a secret?.

Best regards,

Cristi

We would really appreciate it. My 12 year old twin daughters loved your video, too!

I enjoyed this, but..

Parts of your video were a little too silly for me. I thought the music was a bit repetitive. And I never imagined photons could look so mean.

But overall; this was a great effort for a young person. It got almost all the important points in, and I imagine other young people will have fun watching it.

You are to be commended.

All the Best,

Jonathan
