What Is Time? Theoretical Physicist Sean Carroll Explains Time's Arrow

Have you ever stopped to ask yourself, "what is time?" We all understand its passage intuitively, experientially. But does time actually exist? Is it a force of nature? A tangible entity? I spoke with theoretical physicist and perhaps the world's premier expert on the science of time, Sean Carroll, to learn more.

Time Flies When You’re Having Goal-Motivated Fun | omnia mea mecum fero | Scoop.it

New research from psychological science suggests that the familiar adage may really be true, with a caveat: time flies when we’re have goal-motivated fun.

Gene Appears Linked With A Person's Daily Rhythms | omnia mea mecum fero | Scoop.it

The settings for a person’s biological clock might provide clues to when, during the day, he or she will be more active. What’s more, these same settings could be linked to what time of day a person might die, a new study finds.

[VIDEO] - Gamma-Rays Prove Einstein Right: Space-Time Is Smooth | Video

After 7 billion years of travel, high and low energy photons arrive at NASA's Fermi spacecraft a mere 900ms apart, suggesting that space-time isn't the bubbly foam of quantum theory but seems closer to Einstein's smooth rubbery membrane.

Welcome to the No-Hour Work Week

Welcome to the No-Hour Work Week | omnia mea mecum fero | Scoop.it

With the help of mobile technology, more people are working to live rather than living to work. In surveys, today's employees are more likely to associate words like 'love' and 'world' with with finding a job than 'money' and 'success'. And in an age when people carry their (open-planned) office in their pocket, it is essential to make rest and recuperation a priority as a means of recovering energy. "More energy means more creativity," says Stein. "More creativity means better work. And that’s a good outcome for everyone, and the world."

Time

Time is one of the most important aspects of our lives yet it goes largely unexamined throughout daily life. This film explores a fundamental question regarding time: why does it move in only one direction? We examine this question through an understanding of entropy, a basic concept in physics that many are not aware of. We hope that this film will help the audience increase their understanding of the concept of entropy while at the same time promoting an interest in deeper questions regarding the nature of time.

Why You Need a Time Machine: Dr. Kaku Explains String Theory

Why You Need a Time Machine: Dr. Kaku Explains String Theory | omnia mea mecum fero | Scoop.it

In this excerpt from his lecture for The Floating University, Dr. Kaku explains that time machines do not violate Einstein's laws of physics, and that – difficult though it might be – future humans would be wise to build one and slip through a wormhole to one of the alternate dimensions proposed by string theory before the cooling universe extinguishes all known life.

Tree Of Life: The History of the World, Visualized

Tree Of Life: The History of the World, Visualized | omnia mea mecum fero | Scoop.it
In this graphic by the Tree of Life web project and designer Leonard Eisenberg, we see all 3.5 billion years of life on earth evolving, not through limbs and timelines, but an elegant rainbow swirl. It’s as if our whole history is a colorful bunch of balloons, all tying back to bacteria.

As you look at the graphic, realize that time radiates outward and each kingdom’s appearance is also in chronological order from left to right. What you’ll discern then is a story of origins and mass extinctions, the way life almost bided its time through the Ice Age then hit the gas through the Cambrian Explosion. It was here when the protostomes (everything from trilobites to squids) simply went nuts, and the separation of plants vs. animals as we know them arose...

How To Stop Time

How To Stop Time | omnia mea mecum fero | Scoop.it

Human beings have the capacity to stop time. It is, in fact, a commonly used capacity. We use our ability to stop time as a bulwark against the threat of disruptive newness that encroaches with the future. It also allows us to keep what we remember from turning into the mere past.

So how do we stop time?

The answer that I have in mind is: through ritual.

Physicists continue work to abolish time as fourth dimension of space | omnia mea mecum fero | Scoop.it

In a new study, Sorli and Fiscaletti have shown that two phenomena of special relativity - time dilation and length contraction - can be better described within the framework of a 3D space with time as the quantity used to measure change (i.e., photon motion) in this space.

The Internet's Cult of Now

The Internet's Cult of Now | omnia mea mecum fero | Scoop.it

There is only one measure of time that matters to the current Internet generation: the here and now. The Cult of Now is influencing everything that we do and every interaction we have on the Internet, especially since providing a live, real-time update is often no more difficult than pressing a button on a smart phone. We now perceive our digital lives as a continuous flow of information, and as the intensity of this information flow builds, it means that "the now" gets a disproportionate amount of attention and focus in our society. The Cult of Now satisfies our desire for instant digital gratification, but does it impoverish us in other ways?
