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.

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.

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.

A quick alert that the new podcast is up. Listen to it here.

In this edition we chat to Howard Wiseman, a physicist at the University of Brisbane, in Australia, who has come up with a new theory in which our universe is classical — and one of a multiverse of other classical universes. According to this model, the reason we see spooky quantum effects in this universe is due to the repulsive forces between parallel versions of each particle across the multiverse. In the main podcast, Wiseman talks about how indeterminism, quantum tunnelling, wave-particle duality, and Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle appear to manifest in this universe due to the influence of other worlds. In the extended version of the interview, available on the podcast page, you can also hear about zero-point energy, vacuum energy, the quantisation of energy levels and entanglement.

We’re also running Carinne Pikema’s interview with FQXi grant winner Susanne Still, who talks about redefining life, down to the molecular level, in terms of living matter’s ability to predict the future. For more information read Carinne’s article: “Life’s Quantum Crystal Ball.” Colin Stuart also chats with FQXi grant winner Philip Goyal about the symmetrisation postulate—a founding principle of quantum theory with a dubious derivation that Goyal is now scrutinizing. There’s also an in-depth article about Goyal’s work and its implication for the existence of hypothetical particles known as anyons: “Spt the Difference to Reveal Exotic Particles.”

And we listen to the “song” emanating from the comet visited by the Rosetta mission’s Philae lander (pictured above).

Dear Liza John ,

Only humanly contrived finite misinformation about our universe exists.

My Research has concluded that NATURE must have constructed the simplest visible physical Universe obtainable, because reality existed for millions of years before man appeared on earth and started guessing where earth might have came from. The real Universe must consist of only one single unified visible infinite surface occurring eternally in one single infinite dimension that am always illuminated by infinite non-surface light.

Isaac Newton, Albert Einstein, Stephen Hawking and all of the physicists and philosophers who have ever lived have only ever produced utterly complex finite misinformation.
