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.

There are a number of interesting issues that eminate from this article.

It seems that a closed-time-like curve, where an object travels a distance, and returns to where it started(or at least to the period in time just prior), is no different than to state, that to track an object that has transversed in a closed-time-like loop, it remains in the same location?

Surely for a particle...

As space is atemporal time travel are out og question. One can travel in space only and not in time, see more on

Godel was unconvinced of the fundamental nature of time and his intellectual companion and confident Einstein shared his doubts. Unfortunately those doubts were dismissed by quantum physicists of their day. Correct understanding of how subjective time arises and that the 4th dimension is a scalar spatio-energetic dimension (the other 3 being vector spatio-energetic dimensions) rather than a peculiar time dimension is necessary. So in objective reality there is no time only a quaternion spacial continuum which can also be thought of as a quaternion field in which energetic fluctuation and "flow" occurs.

Sub atomic particles are able to move either way along the 4th dimension, which has historically been thought of as the time dimension, as their potential energy fluctuates. Unlike matter which is in continuous afore -ward motion along the 4th dimension. Thus effects due to the behaviour of sub atomic particles may be misinterpreted as time travel by those utilising an incorrect space-time or quantum model.

Godel standpoint was that coordinate is spatial too.

Out of that comes that time is run of clocks.

more you can erad in my article "Proof of Godel Theorem on Time"
