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 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.

It’s that gift-giving time of year and, as a father of two, I’m always on the lookout for books that will amuse my kids. So I jumped at the chance to chat to FQXi’s Brian Greene, who recently published a kids’ book covering modern physics and cosmology.

Now, I’m a firm believer in teaching children good science and not just pacifying them with simplistic answers such as...

The Capitalist Dictatorship Falsifies Basic Science!

Michio Kaku, Wendy Freedman, Dennis Oberbye,

Brian Greene, etc. Are Exposed as Liars!

Today basic medicine, science including climatology, astrophysics and even both Einstein’s Special Theory and General Theory of relativity are brazenly and routinely falsified at the direction of Fascist elements for political/religious...

The capitalists also front large organizations such as the John Templeton Foundation and the Stanford Templeton Research Institute for Nature, God and Science (STRINGS!) to try to reconcile religion and belief in god. Good grief! Don’t be fooled for a second!

Religious superstition can play no constructive role in either genuinely progressive thought or the process of organizing a...

Hello dear William H. Depperman,

Nice to meet you ,what a cry of heart.

Sorry but French is my primary language .

Our global system is unfortunally chaotic ,it's not the system but the human nature in all cultures ,religions,systems and countries .

"Science without conscienciousness is ruin of soul"

It's evident if some people with reponsabilities don't act in harmony and universality ,their decisions shall be in this processus.

The bad governances always and the envy of power and moneys .It's a global reality ,everywhere the bad governances decrease our evolution and our potential of complementarity .

I have some words about that ...and if ,in the past evolution ,we had given ,.....we add bad past ideas .

But we evolve fortunaly .

In my Spherization Theory ,there is a contraction towards the ultim sphere and its harmonic architecture in balance.

The accretions towards centers with a complexificqtion and an increase of mass ,the spherization is foundamental I think .

Hello dear Mr W.H.Depperman,

To all problem exists a solution ,I admit that our global system is chaotic .

For our ecology ,it's urgent to act differently .

I have invented a global technic to restabilize that .It's an add of technics ,these technics are in correlation with the foundamental harmonic universal balance .

I have tested on ground and results are important .

1 The optimization of soils 2 The vegetal multiplication 3

the composting ,of course a good knowledge in botany and ecology is important to encircle all the interactions ,the phytosociology ,the climatology ,the geology ,the hand of man .... these 3 technics are a solution for our Earth and its balance.

Take our soil like fisrt step is so important .We can increase the mass of ecosystems and increase the number of interactions between animals ,vegetals and minerals ,

The soil is so important .it's the begining .The first step .

Cool book.I would buy it. Great for the tourist gift shop when the LHC is retired too.
