First Things First: The Physics of Causality
Why do we remember the past and not the future? Untangling the connections between cause and effect, choice, and entropy.

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.

A very nice suggestion. This was how Physics used to be done when it was called Natural Philosophy in the days of Newton and Leibniz.

And before then I can imagine Aristotle, Plato, Euclid, etc forming a circle around a Parmenides and Zeno at the centre. The purpose of which is to grind their fringe theory to either absurdity (reductio ad absurdum) or approval and acclaim.

Contention should be the goal, not acquiescence...

"In our new special edition of the FQXi podcast, we ask, what is the best way to interest and excite the public about physics, especially foundational physics? Do we just stick to the facts, or do we need slogans, explosions, and, ahem, essay and video contests?"

So, it the spirit of contention, not acquiescence, why not include a fringe theory du jour for all others to pile on for a while and pull it apart? What...


Hello ,

The most important is the determinism, the rationalism and the SPHERIZATION
