Search FQXi


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.

I have a bad memory for names. But it’s not equally bad for all names. I recall Germanic and Anglo-saxon names more readily than Indian or Chinese names. I recall short names better than long names. I recall common names better than uncommon ones. So, when I organize a conference, how do I avoid a bias for people whose names my brain happens to have stored?

I used to ask my colleagues, and scan participant lists of similar conferences, and browse papers on the conference topics. But often I wished there was a way to just bring up a list of all physicists who worked on a topic or a combination of topics. This, so I thought, wouldn’t only be useful to organize a conference, it would also help journalists who search for an expert’s comment, or editors who search for reviewers.

And – drums please! –  you can now do such a search on our just-launched website SciMeter. Just enter one or several topics, hit submit, and you get a name of everyone whose arXiv papers have focused on the topics you look for.

Wait, that’s not all. On our website you can also create a keyword cloud from your arXiv papers, you can learn how broadly distributed your research topics are (over all arXiv topics), and you can search for authors with similar research interests. For example, here is the keyword cloud for Brian Greene:

screensnap of the SciMeter thread on Sabine's blog. Point is that it is potentially useful to take a peek in vixra as well, and with arxiv app written the easiest next app would be vixra. There's treasure everywhere, to quote Calvin and Hobbes.

The sad fact is that no physicist has ever studied actual visible physical reality. Had they did so, they could have easily established that all matter, be it solid, liquid, or vaporous, has a real visible surface. The earth had a real visible surface for millions of years BEFORE Newton, Einstein, Hawking, and Witten appeared on that surface and began publishing their senseless guesswork about an unnatural invisible void; unnatural invisible gravity; unnatural invisible quantum particles that could be in multiple invisible places at the same moment of time; invisible finite black holes, or invisible finite strings.

To save the concept of time we must look back to the first time when time was corrupted. In the years 1882 to 1887 the prediction for MMX was shifted by introduction of an effect in the transverse arm equal to half the effect in the longitudinal arm. This mistake was helpful in the invention of time dilation.

See attachment describing how MMX can be explained with Galilean transform and without time dilation.
