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.

Guenter Hauser wrote on Dec. 2, 2008 @ 14:31 GMT
Essay Abstract

The twin paradox where two persons can age at different rates is an astonishing effect. I will ask whether we could get a better understanding of the non-global nature of time by a concept which I call transparent time. This kind of time is associated with unobservable transformations. I also do argue for the existence of an additional more fundamental type of time, the underlying time, partly in line with John Cramer's Pseudo time. The Planck time, an extremely small amount of time, is often considered as the smallest period of time. Smaller intervals either do not exist or a new theory is necessary to explain this domain of physics. Starting from the hypotheses that it is an intermediate equilibrium instead of a block universe what we are able to observe, I argue that it is the current version of the history which we do experience, and not the “original” history. From the equilibrium with the current version of the history, I get a series of operator equivalence classes C1, C2, C3,… together with a series of critical times. Each of the times in this decreasing series marks the beginning of a new domain of physics. Each domain has got its own version of an uncertainty principle. Planck time is not the smallest critical time and most of the critical times are smaller – smaller yet by another quite large factor. Finally all the laws of physics plus the universe(s) themselves, become united in a single space.

The abstract is always written after the paper is completed. "Abstract" means that you have "abstracted", or taken out, the main ideas and put them in a short version that someone can read to decide whether they want to read the whole Pay Someone To Write My Essay. Start with your thesis- what is the topic, and what position are you going to take on it? Then decide what evidence you need to support your thesis and look it up. Your thesis needs to be something that can be argued- ask yourself if someone could take the opposite point of view.
