A post qualitatively explaining the main ideas behind the AdS/CFT correspondence. The breakthroughs in theoretical physics due to the theory are outlined along with the consequences for how we view our universe.
A short opinion post touching on the idea of the sense of self, a loss of identity and the reasons behind choice.
Today we bring together black holes and exoplanets to fantasise over the ultimate solar system with a dark twist.
A continuation in the series on Black Holes, examining the inner horizon known as the Cauchy Horizon and its implications on space and time.
An extended piece on the nature of time as a result of the theory of Special Relativity.
A brief, purely discursive, post explaining the motivations for and success of Quantum Field Theory.
Today we will present the basics of Group Theory. Group Theory is essential to theoretical physics as it examines the symmetries of nature to uncover fundamental connections and patterns within the universe.
Revisiting the theme of time we explain the geometry of spacetime and explore the special quantity known as ‘proper time’. A qualitative post which includes the use of simple graphs.
A post which explains the five main laws which govern the quantum world. The post is purely qualitative and requires no use of mathematics.
A post presenting a scientific tool known as thought experiment. Pros and cons will be given alongside examples of noteworthy thought experiments across the ages. Let’s go inside the mind.
