Will Constructor Theory Rewrite Physics?

With my interesting in quantum computing, I have spent a lot more time than usual looking at videos like this. The people behind the greatest leaps in physics – Einstein, Newton, Heisenberg, all had the uncanny ability to see the fundamentals – see the deepest, underlying facts about the world, and from simple statements about […]

New Results in Quantum Tunneling vs. The Speed of Light

In a race, who would win: quantum tunneling or the reigning champ, the speed of light? Paradoxically, the most promising prospects for moving matter around faster than light may be to put a metaphorical brick wall in its way. New efforts in quantum tunneling – both theory and experiment – show that superluminal motion may […]
