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.

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.

La qualité est évidente. Il n'y a pas de blanc plat sur le cadran, mais une texture granuleuse subtile créée avec un artisanat japonais magique. L'échelle de temps en or rose est une mécanique ultra-précise à l'échelle microscopique. Notez les arêtes vives de chaque marque replique montre d'heure de polyèdre. Les aiguilles des heures et des minutes sont grandes et le miroir polyédrique poli taillé en diamant - je pense que le niveau de polissage a atteint le haut polissage noir....
