WHY CITIES KEEP GROWING, CORPORATIONS AND PEOPLE ALWAYS DIE, AND LIFE GETS FASTER [Geoffrey West:] I spent most of my career doing high-energy physics, Quarks, dark matter, string theory and so on. Between ten and… Read More
An Introduction to Mindsight by Daniel J. Siegel, M.D. Published on Jul 18, 2013 “Mindsight” is a term coined by Dr. Dan Siegel to describe our human capacity to perceive the mind of the self and others. It is a powerful lens through which we can understand our inner lives with more clarity, integrate the… Read More
In order to transition from our present death economy and birth a new life economy, we need to bring new life-tools to our toolkit of investigations and experimentation. Given the recent realisation that our present economic science, in its present incarnation can be described as a form of “alchemy,” we have now to ask what… Read More
http://themindunleashed.org/2013/07/physicists-find-evidence-that-universe.html What if I told you there was a fourth phase of matter, distict from solid, liquid and gas, and that there was a fourth phase of water, distict from ice, liquid and vapour, that have not been incorporated into our best mainstream scientific theories that attempt to explain the workings of our universe? What… Read More

Abstract In this short note, the key to unlocking the secrets of quantum physics will be elucidated by exploring the fundamentals of Schrodinger’s wave mechanics approach to describing quantum phenomenon. We will show that de Broglie’s wave-particle… Read More
In this brief note, it will be shown that space may have hidden properties normally attributed to elementary particles, such as mass and charge. We will also elucidate the thermodynamic properties of these atoms of space by modelling these atoms as ideal gas entities propagating disturbances at the speed of light. We have only demanded consistency in the formulas for circular motion, Einstein’s mass-energy equivalence, wave-particle duality, Planck-Einstein equation, Newton’s law of universal gravitation, Schwarzschild solution of general relativity, the Reissner–Nordström metric and black hole thermodynamics. We will then use the adiabatic index formula to elucidate the degrees of freedom of these atoms of space. We will also reinterpret Einstein’s theories of relativity, solve the mystery of the double slit experiment, muse on the physical nature of dark energy, and finally uncover a possible blindspot that may have hampered progress in constructing a consistent and complete theory of quantum gravity.
