Physicists Aim to Classify All Possible Phases of Matter

https://www.quantamagazine.org/physicists-aim-to-classify-all-possible-phases-of-matter-20180103/   Article by Natalie Wolchover Many scientists are beginning to realize that we live in an information universe where information about the physical makeup of reality resides in an ocean entangled bits of quantum information called 'qubits'. How this information collects determines the state of matter and spin of elementary particles  These phases show up … Continue reading Physicists Aim to Classify All Possible Phases of Matter

Science Says This 5-Second Rule Will Make Your Brain Stop Procrastinating

By Thomas Koulopoulos Founder, Delphi Group@tkspeaks https://www.inc.com/thomas-koulopoulos/according-to-science-this-5-second-rule-will-make-.html?cid=sf01001&sr_share=twitter I've been meaning to write this column for some time. The reason I'm finally getting to it is because it's an excuse to avoid doing something else. Let's face it, few of us, if we're honest, wouldn't confess to occasionally procrastinating. Our lives are busy, with lots of competing priorities, so … Continue reading Science Says This 5-Second Rule Will Make Your Brain Stop Procrastinating

A Debate Over the Physics of Time

Dan Falk Contributing Writer July 19, 2016 For entire article go to: https://www.quantamagazine.org/a-debate-over-the-physics-of-time-20160719/ According to our best theories of physics, the universe is a fixed block where time only appears to pass. Yet a number of physicists hope to replace this “block universe” with a physical theory of time. Einstein once described his friend Michele … Continue reading A Debate Over the Physics of Time

The Case Against Dark Matter

Quanta Magazine's mission is to enhance public understanding of research developments in mathematics and the physical and life sciences. By Natalie Wolchover November 29, 2016 For 80 years, scientists have puzzled over the way galaxies and other cosmic structures appear to gravitate toward something they cannot see. This hypothetical “dark matter” seems to outweigh all visible … Continue reading The Case Against Dark Matter

A New Spin on the Quantum Brain

https://www.quantamagazine.org/20161102-quantum-neuroscience/?utm_source=Quanta+Magazine&utm_campaign=d6cca631a0-Quanta_Newsletter_Feb_27_2015&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_f0cb61321c-d6cca631a0-389572177 By Jennifer Ouellette November 2, 2016 A new theory explains how fragile quantum states may be able to exist for hours or even days in our warm, wet brain. Experiments should soon test the idea The mere mention of “quantum consciousness” makes most physicists cringe, as the phrase seems to evoke the vague, insipid … Continue reading A New Spin on the Quantum Brain

The Strange Behavior of Quantum Particles May Indicate the Existence of Other Parallel Universes

June 3, 2015 by John Davis Read more at: http://phys.org/news/2015-06-strange-behavior-quantum-particles-parallel.html#jCp It started about five years ago with a practical chemistry question. Little did Bill Poirier realize as he delved into the quantum mechanics of complex molecules that he would fall down the rabbit hole to discover evidence of other parallel worlds that might well be poking through … Continue reading The Strange Behavior of Quantum Particles May Indicate the Existence of Other Parallel Universes

Not All Gravitational Waves Are Created Equal

Not All Gravitational Waves Are Created Equal The LIGO experiment hunts for gravitational waves that are different from those sought by BICEP2. Although both types are elusive, they differ in age and strength—and come from very different places By Clara Moskowitz on January 14, 2016 The LIGO Hanford Observatory in Washington State. LIGO In physics circles a … Continue reading Not All Gravitational Waves Are Created Equal

Pentaquark Particle Spotted

Forsaken Pentaquark Particle Spotted at CERN Exotic subatomic particle confirmed at Large Hadron Collider after earlier false sightings By Matthew Chalmers, Nature magazine on July 14, 2015 CERN / LHCb Collaboration An exotic particle made up of five quarks has been discovered a decade after experiments seemed to rule out its existence. The short-lived ‘pentaquark’ was spotted by … Continue reading Pentaquark Particle Spotted
