It's About Time!
A place to discuss our evolving knowledge of the nature of time and causality. For physicists, computer scientists, mathematicians, neuroscientists, philosophers, and practicing engineers.
Spacetime is Doomed.
A relationship with time is intrinsic to everything we do within and between our networked computers. An assumption that time is a smooth, irreversible, global Newtonian/Minkowskian background is a common but rarely questioned belief in computer science; yet, physicists now know this model to be incorrect. Our guest speakers are all people who have thought deeply about the nature of time. We collectively realize that a new understanding could potentially revolutionize the way we approach physics, computer science, chemistry, neuroscience, and many other subjects.
