    Ironic that Einstein published on Brownian motion

    Why ironic?

    Because it's a key into quantum behaviour. Then again, he also published on the photoelectric effect that same year. Also SR. I am fascinated by Einstein's repulsion with QM

    Einstein is one of the fathers of Quantum Mechanics. The photoelectric paper was the first independent evidence of Planck's hypothesis of energy quanta. The fact that he didn't like its later developments doesn't change that.

    I'm not sure I like them much either.

    Study reveals possibility of a quantum material to transport zero-resistance current above room temperature.

    Spintronics transports energy, so if it can do this losslessly at room temperature it's a winner.

    Mathematically, they showed that a clock entangled with the rest of the universe would appear to tick when viewed by an observer within that universe. But if a hypothetical observer existed outside the universe, when they looked in, everything would appear stationary.

    OK, I give up, mind blown. Wake me when it's over.

    Since time apparently does not exist, it will never be over.

    They get you every none-time.

    Here's one that occurred to me yesterday for no special reason. As a thin light beam increases in intensity, two things happen - the photons begin to scatter and the energy density increases. If the beam geometry can be successfully maintained, then black hole beads begin to form along the beam. Perhaps they coalesce, or perhaps they evaporate. This is all qualitative. The energy numbers are massive, at least that's clear.

    Off what? Photons are bosons and don't scatter off each other.
