The original problem Treating non-random information as if it were random (Phillip Martin’s Probability Trap) Host knowingly opens a door – is different from a host RANDOMLY opening a door. It is based on the deeply...

Counting Elements versus Counting Intervals The interval [0,1) for example is uncountable, but we are not counting ELEMENTS of an interval, we are counting INTERVALS. [0,1] is one interval, [0,1/3] is another and so...

How often have you stared at a math problem, unsure of where to begin? The thing is, most math books cover the basic lemmas and theorems – but provide little instruction on the TYPES of problems those lemmas can help with. So...

The short answer is ‘No’. If you think about what the zero-point energy represents, it is the lowest POSSIBLE energy state of a system. For us to extract any energy out of this system would leave it in an even lower energy...

Galilean Transformation – v’ = v +- V – cannot be applied to light If (x1 , t1) and (x2,t2) are two events in K, and (x1’,t1’) and (x2’,t2’) are their co-ordinates in K’, then (x2 –x1) / (t2 –...

A Logical Paradox – The British Air Force Bombing Paradox The British Airforce announces that it will bomb the city sometime during this week; but at an unpredictable date. Why is this paradoxical. Suppose, they announce this...

Since we are trained to think classically, it is not entirely possible to get an ‘intuitive’ understanding of Quantum physics. Several classical, common sense notions like the momentum of a material...

The phenomenon we are trying to explain is the interference pattern seen when you send a stream of particles through a double slit (barrier with 2 slits) apparatus. As long as you do not make any measurement, you ALWAYS get an...

Just like the Standard Model for elementary particles, the model for cosmology also has 15 adjustable constants.

For example, if the (one dimensional) position of a particle consisted of a normal statistical distribution with a mean position of 0m and a variance of 1 at time t = 0, it’s wave function would be: So, applying this to...
