Quantum mechanical interaction-free measurements
A novel manifestation of nonlocality of quantum mechanics is presented. It is shown that it is possible to ascertain the existence of an object in a given region of space without interacting with it.
The emergence of life on Earth.
Quantum Phenomena Within a New Theory of Time
In a few crucial passages in the history of physics, seemingly unrelated riddles turned out to merely reflect different facets of the same phenomenon. Such, we submit, may be the lot of the quantum

Becoming as a Bridge Between Quantum Mechanics and Relativity
Time’s apparent “flow” is often dismissed in physical theory. We propose to take it as a real property of reality and show how the addition of this assumption to physics’ prevailing postulate yields,
A Recurrent Quantum Neural Network Model to Describe Eye Tracking of Moving Targets
A theoretical quantum neural network model is proposed using a nonlinear Schrödinger wave equation that mediates the collective response of a neural lattice and is found to be very precise and efficient in comparison to classical objective modeling schemes such as the Kalman filter.
On the two aspects of time: The distinction and its implications
The contemporary view of the fundamental role of time in physics generally ignores its most obvious characteric, namely its flow. Studies in the foundations of relativistic mechanics during the past
Time-Reversed EPR and the Choice of Histories in Quantum Mechanics
When a single photon is split by a beam splitter, its two “halves” can entangle two distant atoms into an EPR pair. We discuss a time-reversed analogue of this experiment where two distant sources

The model proposed here is based on a simple assumption, namely, that life began with the accidental assembly of a self-replicating molecule, enabling a new understanding of evolution as a whole.
