Events out of order when they get shoveled into Minkowski space but causality may be intact

Lee Smolin is a physicist famous for believing that time is fundamental. He is one of the authors on this paper discussing energetic causal sets and disordered causality -- I think it's a way to keep causality despite the order of events being tripped up in Minkowski space. Again, don't totally understand this but someone might.

Duration measured by "light clocks" induces the emergence of spacetime in a quantum collapse model

Quantum collapse is often considered old-fashioned as an idea, but this innovative paper uses the idea of actual quantum collapse combined with "light clocks" that measure our experience of duration to explain how spacetime might emerge. Lots of equations, fun for the polymath.

Another loophole-closing delayed-choice experiment -- not focused on causality

Most versions of the delayed-choice experiment focus seem to be demonstrations of retrocausality -- this one uses a different approach to explaining the same outcome -- of course, the result still implies nonlocality, but it involves the violation of a "dimension witness inequality" which I don't totally understand, but maybe you do.

Quantum computing research focused on time reversal

There's a lot of financial pressure on quantum computing researchers to make progress, which may end up pushing them to focus on controversial topics like time reversal -- a recent advance is described here.

Physicists in denial of the implications of quantum mechanics

Many physicists don't want to look at the implications of QM or what kind of processes could create such bizarre phenomena -- here's a New York Times article about the denial of QM in physics.

Turns out electrons tunnel faster than the speed of light.

This article in Cosmos describes a paper in Nature showing that electrons tunnel through measurable distances instantaneously (faster than the speed of light). Just sayin!

Reversal of the quantum "arrow of time"

It turns out you can time-reverse quantum computational events -- read about the research in Newsweek and at

Are we catching photons travelling in time?

Dr. Mossbridge did a pilot study suggesting that it might be not that difficult to detect photons travelling in time. Her follow-up series of experiments, which are inexpensive relative to other physics experiments, will only be performed if this crowd-funding campaign succeeds -- watch the video and consider donating here.

People can use their dreams to tap into the personal problems of others

Well-known sleep research Carlyle Smith did a well-controlled study in which he asked whether people can receive information in their dreams about the life problems of others. Importantly, he used a control group of fictitious people. A worthwhile read -- potentially related to precognitive dreaming.

Time crystals: Is there anything more enticing?

So here's a state of matter that changes continuously without stopping, and requires no external energy source. Hmm. Is the 2nd law of thermodynamics due for an overhaul (yes!) or are they actually stopping time (yes?). Read more in this article by Sharon Palus.

What we don't know can help us...a lot!

Turns out that you can use a superposition of two possible orders to create an indeterminate order of a photon passing through two gates. Once you have this indeterminate order, each gate can send information to the other gate simultaneously. Because hey, all that matters is that you don't know the order. Weird? Yes! But real! Also, can exponentially speed up computation. Here's the article.

Facts and fallacies about the Star Gate program

Ed May and Sonali Marwaha have archived the declassified portions of the Star Gate US-government sponsored remote viewing program (much of this program was based on precognitive skills) and discuss facts and fallacies in this article.

Time travel and the quantum Hall effect

Precognition is a kind of mental time travel, but physical time travel -- physical movement in the 4th direction forward and backward in time -- may be accomplished at some point in our lifetimes, given that the Quantum Hall calculation has been empirically confirmed. Check out this article.

Participate in Controlled Precognition Research

This is the welcome video for the Positive Precog Training Site -- consider participating in what we believe to be the world's largest controlled precognition experiment of its kind! 

What is time to the unconscious mind?

In this 25-minute talk, Dr. Mossbridge discusses her research related to physiological signals that seem to anticipate future events.

Time's arrow and free will

An interview with Dr. Ruth Kastner of the University of Maryland, in which she discusses time, free will, and the transactional interpretation of quantum mechanics -- in which the past and future conspire to determine the present.

Challenges to the 2nd law of thermodynamics

In this talk given at the Society for Scientific Exploration meeting in 2011, Dr. Daniel Sheehan of the University of San Diego discusses some challenges to the second law -- the law that describes how entropy behaves in a closed system. 

The taboo of psi

In this video of his Google Tech Talk, Dr. Dean Radin discusses the taboo that seems to still be present when people discuss psychic abilities, or psi.

A model of precognition

In this interview, Dr. Ed May, one of the lead researchers on the Star Gate project, discusses his model of precognition.

Retrocausation -- a primer

Huw Price, Philosopher at Cambridge, discusses retrocausality (backwards temporal-like causation) in this lecture geared toward academics.

Quantum delayed choice eraser experiment

This video does a decent job of explaining an experiment in which the future seems to affect the past -- the quantum delayed-choice eraser experiment. Also, here is John Wheeler himself describing the original delayed choice experiment.

Photon time travel -- closed timelike curves

So here's a neat discovery from some researchers in Queensland -- they sent photons back in time to illustrate closed timelike curves. Through a wormhole. So there, people who don't think that this can happen!
