Complexity is the study of the new phenomena which emerge from a collection of interacting objects. In this post we examine complexity in Physics where complex patters arise from relativity simple interactions.
The multiverse – a key ingredient to many a sci-fi film, however the topic has now become a fairly serious area of thought in theoretical physics. Could our universe just be one bubble in the multiverse?
Special Relativity brought about a wide range of insights into the nature of reality including time dilation, a universal speed limit for light and the relativity of simultaneity. It is the latter and its implications that shall interest us today.
Today we talk about SpaceX’s plans to send humans to Mars and make us an interplanetary species. I write this post after attending Elon Musk’s talk at the 2016 International Aeronautical Congress in Mexico.
Today we move to the vast and wonderful field of cosmology. In cosmology a horizon is a dividing surface between regions that are in causal contact. If particles are in […]
The probability wavefunction; a creature whose characteristics propose the existence of simultaneously dead and alive cats, observational dependent existence, and other hard to swallow quantum truths, may have collapsed- indefinitely. […]
Time, by far my favourite abstract notion to think about whilst also the one that can easily cause the most damage to one’s sense of reality if over-dwelled on. This post will cover thoughts on our perception of time and then move on to consider sci-fi’s ever favourite tool, time travel; the common misconceptions, problems and theoretical consistent possibilities.
An extended essay I wrote back in 2012 on how concepts in modern physics imply counterintuitive truths regarding the nature of reality. Part I: The Philosophy It’s one of the […]
