Causality
Causality (also referred to as causation) is the relation between an event (the cause) and a second event (the effect), where the second event is understood as a physical consequence of the first.In c...

Alien Life Might Be so Advanced That It's Indistinguishable From the Laws of Physics
We've never seen aliens ... or have we? No, Roswell conspirators, not now. Please sit down. We're talking in multitudes of higher complexity.Try this on: ...
Quantum Physics: What Is Really Real?
Ever since they invented quantum theory in the early 1900s, explains Maroney, who is himself a physicist at the University of Oxford, UK, they have been talking about how strange it is — how it allows...
A New ‘Einstein’ Equation Suggests Wormholes Hold Key To Quantum Gravity
A new Einsteinian equation, ER=EPR, may be the clue physicists need to merge quantum mechanics with general relativity.
A Different Picture Of Quantum Surrealism
With its ideas of particles zipping in and out of existence, quantum mechanics is probably the kookiest-sounding theory in science. And our understanding of it is little helped by the mysterious “pro...
Schrödinger’s cat just got even weirder (and even more confusing)
The researchers hope their findings will help make quantum computers a reality.
Quantum Computing Is About To Overturn Cybersecurity’s Balance Of Power
Quantum mechanics is now being used to construct a new generation of computers that can solve the most complex scientific problems—and unlock every digital vault in the world. These will perform in s...
Quantum Teleportation? Producing Spin-Entangled Electrons
Researchers have successfully produced pairs of spin-entangled electrons and demonstrated that they remain entangled even when they are separated from one another on a chip. This research could contri...
Albert Einstein Wouldn’t Like It: New Test Proves Universe Is ‘Spooky’
The universe really is weird, which is bad news both for Albert Einstein and for would-be hackers hoping to break into quantum encryption systems. Eighty years after the physicist dismissed as “spooky...
New Method Of Quantum Entanglement Vastly Increases How Much Information Can Be Carried In A Photon
A team of researchers led by UCLA electrical engineers has demonstrated a new way to harness light particles, or photons, that are connected to each other and act in unison no matter how far apart the...
How Quantum Pairs Stitch Space-Time
Brian Swingle was a graduate student studying the physics of matter at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology when he decided to take a few classes in string theory to round out his education — “be...
Time Traveler From 4126 Brought Back Future Technology
In this video, we interview the man who claims to be from the year 4126. He claims to have brought back technology from the future. In this interview, we talk about all aspects of the future. Includin...
Time Traveler Took This Video in The Year 2120
Noah claims to be a time traveler from the year 2030. We met up with him in person as he showed us what he claims is an actual video taken in the year 2120. Noah alleges to have traveled to 2120 as pa...
The Race To Prove 'Spooky' Quantum Connection May Have a Winner
Particles don’t obey the same rules as people. Poke a particle, and another one far away can instantly respond the touch -- without any messages passing through the space between, as if the two partic...
Three 'Twisted' Photons In 3 Dimensions
Researchers at the Institute of Quantum Optics and Quantum Information, the University of Vienna, and the Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona have achieved a new milestone in quantum physics: they were ...
Four causes
"Four causes" refers to an influential principle in Aristotelian thought whereby causes of change or movement are categorized into four fundamental types of answer to the question "why?". Aristotle wr...

Causal model
A causal model is an abstract model that describes the causal mechanisms of a system. The model must express more than correlation because correlation does not imply causation.Judea Pearl defines a c...
Counterfactual conditional
A counterfactual conditional abbreviated CF, is a subjunctive conditional containing an if-clause which is contrary to fact.

Probabilistic causation
Probabilistic causation designates a group of philosophical theories that aim to characterize the relationship between cause and effect using the tools of probability theory. The central idea behind t...
Causality (physics)
Causality is the relationship between causes and effects. It is considered to be fundamental to all natural science, especially physics. Causality is also a topic studied from the perspectives of phi...
Causation (law)
Causation is the "causal relationship between conduct and result". That is to say that causation provides a means of connecting conduct with a resulting effect, typically an injury. In criminal law, ...
