This category includes websites on topics such 'Scientific Revolutions' and 'paradigm shifts' as well on the interaction of physical science with the philosophy of the time, such as the postivistic philosophy of Mach and Carnap, and their influence on Quantum Mechanics (QM) and Relativity.
Do we need Quantum Mechanics to explain brain? Is brain needed to 'collapse the Wave Function'?
Includes philosophical aspects of Quantum Gravity, Unified Theories and role of Conscious Observer and intelligence in Quantum Mechanics.
Popular beliefs inspired by, or seeking justifications in the abstract theories of physics.
For example essays on relation of relativism and relativity, or essays seeking
to connect philosophical monism or mystical state of 'being one with universe' and Unified Field theories.
Physical theories should go into physics or alternative physics
this category is only for organized, readable essays on
impact of the physics on popular culture and quest for personal understanding of the world and natural philosophy.
Included may be description, analysis and satire
of popular misconceptions (such as the ''Improbability Drive''
in the Hitchiker''s Guide to Galaxy) and Urban Legends related to Physics.
Question of Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics, starting with Einstein-Bohr dialog, paradoxes, EPR, hidden parameter theories and leading to the Bell Theorem continue to generate new ideas controversies.
The technical and mathematical papers could be submited
to science/physics/interpreations of QM.
This category is for discussion of the Bell theorem,
which seems to imply that Reality and Locality are
not compatible postulates. Papers, popular exposes, defining and explaining all these terms are welcome.
See also @links (e.g. metaphysics and folklor) for sites
which are not dealing with philosphical implications of these physics issues.
This category is reserved for web pages which may
contain seeds of the future theories, new insights
which will provide escapes from the current paradigm,
as defined in subcategory: .../Philosophy_of_Physics/Quantum_Reality and non-locality
The Bell theorem is a no-go theorem, saying that counterintuitive implications of the Quantum Mechanics cannot be fixed. But physics is not a branch of mathematics and any mathematical proof is subject to interpretation and
search for hidden assumptions...
Submitted sites may contain intuitive, unproven and controversial thoughts and insights. There is no peer review and no endorsement, required or implied. This is the category for BrainStorming about the future of physics. However, this is not replacement for usenet newsgroup
or for ...alt-physics or ...philosophy/metaphysics categories.
The authors should understand current theories and the writing should be lucid and have some connection
to experiments, current or future.
The time reversal and Arrow of Time, causality including paradoxes of the Statistical Mechanics and evolution of Complex Systems - Mimetics.
Effect of scale on the symmetry of time.
Boltzman-Loschmidt controversy :Can the irreversible Thermodynamics be derived from reversible Mechanics?
Interaction of Quantum Mechanics and Relativity: Is there
a Time's Arrow on microscopic, quantum level?
Noosphere: If time has an arrow, does that arrow has a point?
