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.

Dissolving Quantum Paradoxes
The impossibility of building a perfect clock could help explain away microscale weirdness.

Constructing a Theory of Life
An all-encompassing framework of physics could help to explain the evolution of consciousness, intelligence, and free will.

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....
