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.

Essay Abstract

I have found 2 equations that completely describe our universe in 2+1D. All universes with observers must be finite. The constants are c^2/G = Plank(M)/Planck(L^2).

Author Bio

I have spent the last 40 years working on one problem. The conservation of quantum information in a finite universe.

Respected Professor Paul F. OBrien,

Now i call you professor nothing less after seeing your excellent essay. Thanks for coming from Zioan to Earth!!

Every thing is good, I feel, except a small point. There are many blue shifted Galaxies, may be to the order of 40%, Where as red shifted are also 40%. It will not be purely 'Expanding' Universe, what do you say? I was also working on Dynamic Universe Model for the last 40 years, it solved many unsolved problems....

Have a look at my essay " A properly deciding, Computing and Predicting new theory’s Philosophy ", I think we will have plenty to discuss...

Best Regards

Dear Paul,

I greatly appreciated your work. I am very glad that you are not thinking in abstract patterns.

While the discussion lasted, I wrote an article: “Practical guidance on calculating resonant frequencies at four levels of diagnosis and inactivation of COVID-19 coronavirus”, due to the high relevance of this topic. The work is based on the practical solution of problems in quantum mechanics, presented in the essay FQXi 2019-2020 “Universal quantum laws of the universe to solve the problems of unsolvability, computability and unpredictability”.

I hope that my modest results of work will provide you with information for thought.

Warm Regards, `

Vladimir
