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.

Ha, you're going to give me nightmares! Voted it up.

Here's my Higgs Geometry video if you can have a look.

It's tricky to present the mathematics of symmetry breaking and particle physics to a popular audience, so I do appreciate feedback on it.

Dear Mr. Dragan

I see what you were trying to do here. It was brief & to point, but a little too brief. I think you could've expanded on it more. Although, I'm not into to creepy type visuals, there is defiantly an audience for this style of creativity. I gave you 3.5 stars because I wish you had made it a little longer, but good special effects. Nice job.

When you get a chance please check out my video"The Escape - Physics & Fairytales". Like you I took a different creative approach then just presenting physics information in a classroom type setting. I took a classic fairytale about Cinderella - modernized it and then used physics to explain how Cinderella escaped from the castle. I hope you will check it out, rank it and give me your feedback. I think you'll enjoy it.
