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.

Hello dear thinkers, beautiful discussion,

take care :) jedis of the Sphere :)


Coincidentally, on Dec. 30, 2015 the IUPAC's working group had reached consensus on verification of the discovery of four new isotopes that fill out the seventh row of the periodic table. All those isotopes are found to be highly unstable and a new three letter identifier is being assigned designating Unstable Isotopes. Might be good to follow for big discoveries of 2016, as the announcement was made after the turn of the year. jrc


Lorraine,

" ... physical reality is not necessarily a purely mathematical system in itself. "

And c-a-t isn't identical to a furry animal with four paws. So what?
