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. Thank you.

I think they have been drinking some very strong coffee.

Trying to fit isotropy into the geometry of a bubble is putting a square peg in a round hole. There is only one way to do it and it doesn't requires lots of extra dimensions. The "bubble" is the horizon.

In this case, how far light travels before it fades to black.

Hi John and Amrit,

Dear Amrit, happy to see you again.

These collisions do not exist simply.

Regards and happy new year to both of you.
