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.

Lockdown Lab Life
Grounded physicists are exploring the use of online and virtual-reality conferencing, and AI-controlled experiments, to maintain social distancing. Post-pandemic, these positive innovations could make science more accessible and environmentally-friendly.

Is Causality Fundamental?
Untangling how the human perception of cause-and-effect might arise from quantum physics, may help us understand the limits and the potential of AI.

Building Agency in the Biology Lab
Physicists are using optogenetics techniques to make a rudimentary agent, from cellular components, which can convert measurements into actions using light.

Think Quantum to Build Better AI
Investigating how quantum memory storage could aid machine learning and how quantum interactions with the environment may have played a role in evolution.

Video Description Entanglement is one of the strangest parts of quantum mechanics — so strange, in fact, that Albert Einstein famously referred to it as "spooky action at a distance." An entangled system shows a property that has been measured for the whole but not for parts. For instance, we may know that the sum of the spins of a pair of two particles is zero, but neither of them is in a definite state (a condition referred to as superposition), particle until one is measured, causing the other particle to assume the opposite state. The effect is instantaneous, even if the two particles reside on opposite ends of the universe. Curiously, when science drills down into the core of even the most solid-looking object, separateness dissolves, and all that remain are relationships extending throughout, and possibly beyond, space and time, revealing a deeper reality which evokes what sages from all ages and traditions have been describing as one substance — call it consciousness, call it energy — comprising all the universe and giving rise to all appearances. When we begin to explore the fabric of reality either through the lens of science or through the lens of spirituality, a deeper understanding and experience of what we call reality emerges as infinite, ever present, interconnected whole. - What is the nature of the universe? - What is the nature of awareness that makes it possible for us to experience the universe? - Is there a scientifically viable way to explain consciousness? - What is the connection between consciousness and the phenomenon of entanglement? - Is our current scientific paradigm based on a subject/object split equipped to answer the bigger questions of life? - Is there evidence of quantum entanglement on a macro scale? These and many more questions will be explored at the next SAND14!

I found the filming captivating to watch. The information was well balanced with a good use of narration and examples of the family that made it interesting and understandable. With the goal in mind to help encourage an interest in physics to the general population and stimulate those who already interested in physics, I felt your video did just that. That is why I gave you 5 stars. I hope you will take a look at our video (and vote) “The Escape - Physics and Fairytale" Our aim, in addition to stimulating interest for the lay person to take an interest in physics, was to generate an interest to others groups that are under represented in the physics field. By utilizing a young lady that is identifiable in children's literature (Cinderella) who uses physics to plan her quick escape, while showing the functionality of physics (although a fictional character) we felt would help create an interest in others for the field of physics.

Again, great job.

Hi Zaya and Maurizio,

Nice video about entanglement and how everything is a whole. I think you may enjoy my video (and hopefully give feedback), which is also about quantum reality and wholeness. It is named The puzzle of quantum reality. I also have one about singularities, Can a black hole keep a secret?.

Best regads,
