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.

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

In our video we are trying to find out how Humpty Dumpty fell by finding out which orientation and egg is strongest and how different surfaces affects an egg.

Your video about the strength egg shell is very interesting, and I loved it!

My video is A universe in a cup of water, I hope you will like it too.

I wish you success!

Salam,

Apa kabar? One of our team (Doug) recently spent 6 months at ITB in Bandung and this video -- in addition to being a nice demonstration of differential eggs strength reminded him of his fun time in Bandung with the upside down boat volcano in the background from the view outside his house.

Anyway this is a nice video to demonstrate structural strength and the tie in to the Humpty Dumpty is cute. There is another fun egg physics "trick" -- one can stand an egg on its pointed end (and not just during spring and autumnal equinox). If you take some salt and lay it in a pile you can stand the egg on its "sharp" end. So far not a big trick. Now blow away the salt. All the salt crystals will be blown away except those that are holding the egg up which are almost invisible to the eye since it only takes a few salt grains to stand the egg on its end due to the shape of the salt crystals.

Anyway a nice video. Best of luck with the contest.
