Simulations back up theory that Universe is a hologram

A ten-dimensional theory of gravity makes the same predictions as standard quantum physics in fewer dimensions. Ron Cowen 10 December 2013 At a black hole, Albert Einstein’s theory of gravity apparently clashes with quantum physics, but that conflict could be solved if the Universe were a holographic projection.

Computer Scientists ‘Prove’ God Exists

By David Knight Two scientists have formalized a theorem regarding the existence of God penned by mathematician Kurt Gödel. But the God angle is somewhat of a red herring — the real step forward is the example it sets of how computers can make scientific progress simpler. As headlines go, it’s certainly an eye-catching one.…

Is superhuman intelligence a bad idea? Experts warn the quest for greater knowledge could lead to evil and psychosis

Theoretical  neurobiologist Mark Changizi, and philosopher Mark Walker say we are obsessed  with achieving ever greater intelligence But they  warn it could lead to anti-social behaviour and psychosis Say that if  people become extremely clever but their moral intelligence is not boosted as  well, they could use their powers for evil By  Emma Innes PUBLISHED:…

Researchers explore quantum entanglement: superluminal

Contact: Leanne Yohemas lmyohema@ucalgary.ca 402-220-7722 University of Calgary Paper in Physical Review Letters delves into phenomenon Einstein called ‘spooky’ Albert Einstein called quantum entanglement—two particles in different locations, even on other sides of the universe, influencing each other—”spooky action at a distance.” Einstein made the comment while criticizing quantum mechanics as incomplete—the phenomenon of quantum…

Do we live in a computer simulation? UW researchers say idea can be tested

By Vince StricherzNews and Information A decade ago, a British philosopher put forth the notion that the universe we live in might in fact be a computer simulation run by our descendants. While that seems far-fetched, perhaps even incomprehensible, a team of physicists at the University of Washington has come up with a potential test…

Faster-than-light communication, the hidden influence of inequality and the possibility of infinite speed

Contact: Jenny Hogan jenny.hogan@quantumlah.org 65-651-64302 Centre for Quantum Technologies at the National University of Singapore Researchers look beyond space and time to cope with quantum theory IMAGE: Trying to explain quantum “spooky action at a distance” using any kind of signal pits Einstein’s relativity against our concept of a smooth spacetime.Click here for more information.…

Extending Einstein’s Theory Beyond Light Speed

Researchers have extended Einstein’s theory of special relativity to work beyond the speed of light. (Credit: © vlights / Fotolia) ScienceDaily (Oct. 10, 2012) — University of Adelaide applied mathematicians have extended Einstein’s theory of special relativity to work beyond the speed of light. Einstein’s theory holds that nothing could move faster than the speed…
