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.

George Ellis speaking at the 6th International FQXi Conference, "Mind Matters: Intelligence and Agency in the Physical World."



The Foundational Questions Institute (FQXi) catalyzes, supports, and disseminates research on questions at the foundations of physics and cosmology, particularly new frontiers and innovative ideas integral to a deep understanding of reality but unlikely to be supported by conventional funding sources.

Hi, the origin of this consciousness is a hard problem, many confound the intelligence unfortunally with this consciousness. The works of Hameroff and Pensrose are relevant with nthis protoconsciousness and the microtubules.

The AI is different and we have created the binar codes and the boolean algebras and these algorytms but that does not seem to be like this that our universe acts....

I have well listened your youtube professor Ellis, the agency and the rational logic correlated with the logic of biology and function of the brain . It is a a good common idea , you could consider like you speak about not complete causalities the evolution and deeper parameters superimposed.

You speak about the emergence of higher levels, but what are they. Of course the laws of physics...

Why there is a need to help for veterans in need?

Veterans have served their protecting our country. But right after they are retired from their job, they are not provided with financial compensation to manage their finances. Often, they are left disabled, fighting for our country’s esteem. But they are not compensated with adequate finances for their families. This is why we must help for veterans in need with our donations. Many non-profit organizations help them by providing food & clothes, supported housing, employment opportunities, and other benefits. If the right employment opportunities are provided to these veterans, they can live happy life.

I can understand what you tell , but it is mainly a platform of theoretical physics. I understand that said that a kind of social security maybe is important to protect the veterans. The same for persons sick or disabled physically or mentally in invalidity. I know that this depends of countries, in belgium we have an important social security, and several systems have been created for this social security. It is a choice of governments in fact, the models of finland or belgium are not bad for this social security for the weakest persons . It cost money of course but balances can be found to finance these social securities in paying for example small contributions by the citizens , these citizens enter in a kind of social security too if they fall down sick . Different programs can be created furthermore to help in reinserting these persons with adapted works too. In all case the solutions exist but it is mainly a question of politic ,choices, and amendments. Regards

What are the different skin conditions that people often face?

Every skin care product is not designed for everyone. Some people have different conditions than others. Some major skin conditions may include; Acne-Prone & Oily, Mature, Eye, Skin Care, Dry/Sensitive, and Discoloration. They are some of the most common skin conditions that people face. The reason for these problems may vary from situation to situation. Changes in the environment and using harsh products are common reasons for dry and sensitive skin. Separate cosmeceutical products are designed for each condition that suits their skin. For instance, NCI produces different products for each skin condition, including sensitive, dry skin care and intense hydrating cream for dry skin.
