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.

Neutrino Mysteries
The source of a high-energy neutrino detected at the South Pole has been traced for the first time--to a distant galaxy 4 billion light years away. Astrophysicist Azadeh Keivani tells us how this was done, with the help of multiple observatories. Meanwhile, physicists working at the Miniboone experiment may have spotted signs of new physics--possibly a new type of 'sterile' neutrino. Physicist Richard Van de Water explains more.

Fuzzballs Solve Black Hole Paradox
String theorist Samir Mathur has developed a model in which black holes are replaced by fuzzy balls of string, with no singularities and no event horizon. He explains to Sophie Hebden how fuzzballs solve the black hole information paradox and may rewrite the Big Bang.

Almost Quantum
Physicist Miguel Navascues is on a mission to overturn quantum theory and replace it with a deeper framework, with almost--but not quite--the same set of weird properties of quantum theory, as he explains to reporter Colin Stuart.

Testing Free Will with AI
Could developments in machine learning give scientists a way to test if free will is real, an emergent phenomenon, or an illusion? Physicist Avi Loeb explains to reporter John Farrell how he thinks they could--and why this is important for our sense of moral responsibility.

Very interesting, good job and thanks for sharing such a good blog. Your article is so convincing that I never stop myself to say something about it. You’re doing a great job.Keep it up

There is this title over an image name pagans. It doesn't have the name of the craftsman here so it isn't feasible for clients to realize who made it. Do their uk task soon. Aside from that, the image appears to be truly relieving. It is of orange, red and blue in shading. However, I try to find out more information to follow https://aussiessayservices.com/essayroo-com-review/ because it contained a lot of help for the students.


Excellent and useful information, thanks for the list. androdumpper apk whatsdog apk test dpc apk
