2013.06.15 p.36 String theory needs at least 10 space-time dimensions
2013.06.15 p.37 Light moves at a constant space-time speed, but its direction is in neither space nor time
2013.10.29 p.9 84.5 percent of the universe is made of dark matter
2013.10.29 p.31 People can be highly intelligent, yet very stupid
2013.10.29 p.31 About a third of variation in human intelligence is environmental

2015.05.23 p.31 CP violation shows a decay imbalance in matter and antimatter, leading to matter's dominance
2015.06.13 p.11 Psychologists measure personality along five dimensions
2015.11.07 p.31 Black holes have entropy, but general relativity says they are unstructured, and lack entropy
2015.11.07 p.32 It is impossible for find a model of actuality among the innumerable models in string theory
2015.11.07 p.32 In string theory space-time has a grainy indivisible substructure
2015.11.07 p.33 Space-time may be a geometrical manifestation of quantum entanglement
2015.12.12 p.28 Neural networks can extract the car-ness of a car, or the chair-ness of a chair
2015.12.12 p.29 A system can infer the structure of the world by making predictions about it
2017.02.04 p.31 Quantum theory relies on a clock outside the system - but where is it located?
2017.02.04 p.31 Entropy is puzzling, so we may need to build new laws which include time directionality
2017.02.04 p.31 Entropy is the only time-asymmetric law, so time may be linked to entropy
2017.02.04 p.31 Einstein's merging of time with space has left us confused about the nature of time
