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.

Video Description

25 years of biophysics imagery and information concerning the nature of senses and experience. How are we to incorporate the notion of experience into the physical sciences and how do we reason about experience mathematically?

If you plan to comment it is always wiser, in my view, to review the entire video. The proposal is not abstract and nor is it invisible. According to the model the universe is finite but eternal. Infinity for me is a process. In this model it is the nonlocality and dynamics of flexible closed structure, the cells and membranes of the organism, that characterize particular senses and, eventually the mind.

Excellent lecture!

You do a good job of showing how to stay open minded, and explaining how the nature of physical reality shapes our perceptions. I admittedly did not watch the whole thing yet, but what I heard and saw was entirely congruent and cogent.

All the Best,

Jonathan

dear Dr steven

couldnt be much more- finite but eternal.very charismatic just voted for yours.I too have a simple video hope you find time to view ,vote and review its about how the universe can be represented using simple geometry and the trick our brains play on us to perceive what we call reality.the video link is http://fqxi.org/community/forum/topic/2223.
