HOW IS THE CONSCIOUSNESS CREATED BY THE BRAIN?

When it comes to the worldly matters, science has made a lot of progress in unveiling the secrets. But when it comes to the matter of brain and consciousness, even science has no clues. Consciousness is a different phenomenon for science- it has nothing to show up for it.

A NEW TEST SUPPORTS THE NOTION OF QUANTUM HEAT IN A VACUUM

Some physicists had predicted that empty spaces might look and feel hot to a person travelling at rising speed. A new test has been performed which shows that the above notion is right.

THE POSSIBILITY OF TIME TRAVEL

The theory of special relativity states that one dimension of time and three dimensions of space are interwoven together as one. Space-time is considered to be one single unit. The said unity between the space and time poses a question of the possibility of time travelling.

WHAT ARE ELEMENTARY PARTICLES?

Known elementary particles include the fundamental fermions (quarks, leptons, antiquarks, and antileptons).

WHAT IS QUANTUM MECHANICS?

Quantum Mechanics is the branch of mechanics that deals with the mathematical description of the motion and interaction of subatomic particles, incorporating the concepts of quantization of energy, wave–particle duality, the uncertainty principle, and the correspondence principle.

WHAT DO YOU UNDERSTAND BY CASIMIR EFFECT?

The Casimir effect is a small attractive force that acts between two close parallel uncharged conducting plates. It is due to quantum vacuum fluctuations of the electromagnetic field. The effect was predicted by the Dutch physicist Hendrick Casimir in 1948.
