Deciding to read this article is not the result of gravity shattering your quantum spirit

A few years ago, just below the Apennines in Italy, a team of physicists searched for a flash that might suggest that human consciousness is a product of gravity. The fact that they came out empty-handed does not mean that we are all free-willed flesh computers. However, it makes it much more difficult to find … Read more

God’s Squad: Apologies to my high school physics teacher | Opinion section

Thanks to my enthusiastic reaction to my column on how to adapt miracles to faith that does not need to be ignorant of science. Q: Q: I certainly sympathize with those who are trying to explain the obvious biblical miracles in naturally occurring cosmic events as you have proposed for the “Cross of the Red … Read more

Physicists find shortcuts to see the elusive quantum glow

There are many strange and wonderful concepts in theoretical physics, such as wormholes, quantum bubbles, and the multiverse. The problem is that while such things easily emerge from the theorist’s equations, it is virtually impossible to create and test in a laboratory setting. However, one such “untestable” theory could be an impending experimental setup. Researchers … Read more
