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.

First Things First: The Physics of Causality
Why do we remember the past and not the future? Untangling the connections between cause and effect, choice, and entropy.

Can Time Be Saved From Physics?
Philosophers, physicists and neuroscientists discuss how our sense of time’s flow might arise through our interactions with external stimuli—despite suggestions from Einstein's relativity that our perception of the passage of time is an illusion.

Thermo-Demonics
A devilish new framework of thermodynamics that focuses on how we observe information could help illuminate our understanding of probability and rewrite quantum theory.

Gravity's Residue
An unusual approach to unifying the laws of physics could solve Hawking's black-hole information paradox—and its predicted gravitational "memory effect" could be picked up by LIGO.

Could Mind Forge the Universe?
Objective reality, and the laws of physics themselves, emerge from our observations, according to a new framework that turns what we think of as fundamental on its head.

This is a wonderful video. I have always been a great fan of research in nonlinear dynamics and this video is an excellent visual depiction of these interesting phenomena.

I thought this video was really well done and the topic very interesting. The images are a very cool way of depicting the variations. I would have benefited from some narration, but thats just a personal preference. Very well done overall.

Robert,

Thank you for a very interesting video that blends mathematics, physics, biology and procedural art! Very beautiful and intriguing. Are there any other publicly available resources on this aspect of your research?

I hope your video does well in this competition!

Marc

P.S. If you have a chance to view, comment and vote on my trilogy of videos entitled "This Is Physics" --- where I try to convey the "fun of physics" by focusing on some of the greatest moments of its history --- it would be quite appreciated!

I really enjoyed the nice visual effects in your video.

I'd be curious to learn more about the limit cycles you are discussing. I understand that they describe a periodic oscillation, but what exactly does the curve you are showing represent?

I was also wondering why you are using the word "metaphor" when referring to limit cycles. I was under the impression that they are in fact an accurate mathematical description of biological oscillators, such as the heart. I'd be curious to hear your thoughts on this.

Take a look at our video if you have the time: http://fqxi.org/community/forum/topic/2221

Very interesting use of art to demonstrate heart rhythm. My wife has a-fib and I will be showing this to her. I do feel that it could have concentrated more on the physics of the biology however.

Take a look please at my video at http://fqxi.org/community/forum/topic/2257 and comment.

I am amazed about this, I never knew how the heart really beats! If you have time, I would appreciate if you will watch and rate my videos The puzzle of quantum reality and Can a black hole keep a secret?.

Best regards,

good job, Shaw brothers...

its really amazing to see how we can see and solve the problems in nature by physics. may it be in the field of medicine, chemistry etc...

physics is everywhere, this is also i want to convey through my video - physics the odyssey...

do see it and rate it if you find it interesting. positive criticism is welcomed.

overall its a great job by you guys...keep it!!!!

Interesting choices of visuals. The music was perfect and gave the video a sort of enigmatic and other-worldy feel. However, I think adding some narration would've helped instead of the captions, but that's just me.

If you have time, would you consider rating and reviewing my video? http://fqxi.org/community/forum/topic/2148

Thanks!

Woah. This blows my mind. What an awesome video.

I learned a lot. Just rated you 5 stars.

If you'd like, please check out my video Tons of Fun (physics rap) and vote for it. We just need 2 more votes! Thank you.
