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 is helpful to understand the role of a natural experimenter. His talent and intuition can fill the gap where the theory is not be able to manage the whole stuff around.

But my question: Is it still appropriate to use “colliding conversation” (pictured at 00:36) when we’ve stepped into the quantum world where nonlocal principals rule? Is it still appropriate to use “colliding conversation” when the whole collective of particles is nonlocal system (connection of the system with the medium, the type o which is also variable)?

La fréquence du pendule de la série automatique 9S est de 28 800 fois par heure, ce qui a atteint le niveau de l'Observatoire. Pour réaliser la série Hi-Beat 36000, la première étape consiste à bien faire les engrenages et le processus de transmission de puissance est plus fluide et moins portable. Le nouveau mouvement 9S85 replique montre a été amélioré dans plusieurs domaines clés. Le nouvel enrouleur auto-développé a plus de puissance et 55 heures de réserve d'énergie dans des conditions de haute fréquence. Le nouveau spiral est également plus stable et durable, même les cliquets et les chevaux. Aberdeen a également été repensé et produit. La précision de l'erreur de -2 à + 4 secondes / jour est évidemment une note supérieure à la norme de l'Observatoire suisse. Le mouvement est également très bien poli. Il y a une sculpture spéciale de lion d'or GS sur l'oscilloscope. replique montre de luxe L'attelle et l'oscilloscope sont décorés avec des lignes ondulées spécifiques à GS, similaires à la bande de Genève. Malheureusement, le fameux dispositif magique à levier de Seiko était bloqué et ne pouvait pas être vu.
