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.

Mr. Durga Das Datta

Regarding: But the greatest puzzle of 120 order magnitude remains without any satisfactory explanation.

It is not puzzle, You can see in my GS Journal articles.

Regarding: Some new ideas and NEW PHYSICS are required to go beyond and accept that neither SR and GR of Einstein can be taken for granted.

I do not agree. It is only necessary to come back and understand the giants of physics, Newton, Boskovic, Maxwell, Planck ... But not Lemaitre, Hubble,

or conterporary marketing experts for physics.

Regards

Branko

Dear Mr. Branko, Modern physics stands on pillars created by many great scientists . The information available in those days were limited. But today we have a technology revolution in cosmology . We have many observations quite contradictory to our earlier beliefs. So we must give our opinion based on some educated judgement so that science progresses revising and re locating our vision of the universe around us. Your comments are also a constructive approach towards our goal to understand the universe. You agree that we are beating about the bush in SR and GR and frying the fish with its own oil. New physics is necessary now. Warm Regards.-Durga.

Durgas,

Rather short, and poor formatting ('justified') made it hard to read, but extraordinarily well conceived and facing up to the important questions most avoid. As in your post above; "we are beating about the bush in SR and GR and frying the fish with its own oil. (a new one on me!) I and many others agree that "new ideas and NEW PHYSICS is required to go beyond and accepting that neither SR and GR of Einstein can be taken for granted." But whenever we find a "new way of thinking required"(Einstein) it's dismissed by academia! I've used such a new approach and shown it's power in my own essay but it's rather being ignored so far!

Two more revelations I agree; "FERMION GRAVITONS ARE DARK MATTER IN ITSELF." and we don't really even need to word 'gravitons' as they don't need to 'rush around with messages' which gravitons were conceived for.

Lastly your; "reverse arrow of time giving rise to a re bounce ,re cyclic scenario" which I not only agree but have published a paper identifying a large tranche of evidence only consistent with a cyclic cosmlogy. HJ.2013 Jackson-Minkoski Paper

Well done and a good mark for yours, content ruling over quantity & format. I hope you have some understanding of QM for mine, removing weirdness (see also Declan Traill's matching code and plot).

Very best

Peter

Durgas,

Shame you're not responding. I do rather like your 'superfluid' which is a direction I think we may go. Shame so few seem to agree. I'm scoring it now.

Very best

Peter
