Thought experiment
A thought experiment or Gedankenexperiment (from German) considers some hypothesis, theory, or principle for the purpose of thinking through its consequences. Given the structure of the experiment, it...

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 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...
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.
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...
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 ...
China Launches The First Quantum Communications Satellite – And What Is That, Exactly?
Congratulations are in order for China: by launching the world's first quantum communications satellite, the country has achieved an interesting — if..
Why Elon Musk says we're living in a simulation
You may like playing The Sims, but Elon Musk says you are the Sim.
Our Simulated Universe Is Just One Piece of a Matryoshka Doll of Annihilation
Perhaps a posthuman civilization running simulations self-destructs, or a lab assistant accidentally spills coffee on computer hardware. Simulations can collapse.
Elon Musk Estimates Chance That We’re NOT Living in a Computer Simulation — and It’s Really, Really Small
Elon Musk, the well-known entrepreneur behind Tesla and SpaceX, believes there's a "one-in-billions" chance humanity is not living in a computer simulation. Speaking at tech publication Recode's annu...
Simulation hypothesis
The simulation hypothesis contends that reality is in fact a simulation (most likely a computer simulation), of which we, the simulants are totally unaware. Some versions rely on the development of si...

Closed timelike curve
In mathematical physics, a closed timelike curve (CTC) is a world line in a Lorentzian manifold, of a material particle in spacetime that is "closed", returning to its starting point. This possibility...
Exotheology
The term "exotheology" was coined in the 1960s or early 1970s for the examination of theological issues as they pertain to extraterrestrial intelligence. It is primarily concerned with either conjectu...
The Fabric of Reality
The Fabric of Reality is a book by physicist David Deutsch written in 1997. It expands upon his views of quantum mechanics and its implications for understanding reality.This interpretation, which he ...
N-universes
The n-universes are a conceptual tool introduced by philosopher Paul Franceschi. They consist of simplified models of universes which are reduced to their essential components, in order to facilitate ...

Digital physics
In physics and cosmology, digital physics is a collection of theoretical perspectives based on the premise that the universe is, at heart, describable by information, and is therefore computable. Ther...
Simulation argument
Simulated reality is the hypothesis that reality could be simulated—for example by computer simulation—to a degree indistinguishable from "true" reality. It could contain conscious minds which may or ...
In the beginning was the code: Juergen Schmidhuber at TEDxUHasselt
The universe seems incredibly complex. But could its rules be dead simple? Juergen Schmidhuber's fascinating story will convince you that this universe and your own life are just by-products of a very...
