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

This short technical video describes an approximate mathematical solution for Time Travel involving relativity and very brief time intervals. Limitations of the solution are discussed including possible error sources. Assumptions are made for small changes in the speed of light and for the Lighthouse Frequency, which has been described in previous technical papers. This information will only be meaningful to those with a background in calculus, physics, and/or engineering. Each reader must comprehend that our universe blinks off and on, approximately 1 trillion times every second. See the free technical paper at: - smashwords dot com - ibooks app - barnesnoble dot com. Thanks for your consideration. Richard Lighthouse #FQXiVideoContest2014

Wow! It's a good thing you can "pause" these videos! Thank you for taking the time to put that together. Very complicated (to a non-physicist) but a really neat topic.

If you get a moment, can you please vote on our 2 short videos? We would be really grateful!

Very informative video! There was a lot to take in, but definitely worth the watch.

If you have a chance check out and rate our video too
