This experiment tested how listeners discriminate between the temporal patterns defined by two sequences of tones. Two arrhythmic sequences of n tones were played successively (n = 8, 12, or 16, tone… (More)

I describe the history of my attempts to arrive at a discrete substratum underlying the spacetime manifold, culminating in the hypothesis that the basic structure has the form of a partial-order… (More)

The additivity of classical probabilities is only the first in a hierarchy of possible sum-rules, each of which implies its successor. The first and most restrictive sum-rule of the hierarchy yields… (More)

Starting from certain causality conditions and a discrete form of general covariance, we derive a very general family of classically stochastic, sequential growth dynamics for causal sets. The… (More)

We recast the tools of " global causal analysis " in accord with an approach to the subject animated by two distinctive features: a thoroughgoing reliance on order-theoretic concepts, and a… (More)

How effectively can groups of people make yes-or-no decisions? To answer this question, we used signal-detection theory to model the behavior of groups of human participants in a visual detection… (More)

We propose a realistic, spacetime interpretation of quantum theory in which reality constitutes a single history obeying a " law of motion " that makes definite, but incomplete, predictions about its… (More)

It seems fair to say that causal set theory has reached a stage in which questions of phenomenology are beginning to be addressed meaningfully. This welcome development is due on one hand to improved… (More)

In seeking to arrive at a theory of “quantum gravity”, one faces several choices among alternative approaches. I list some of these “forks in the road” and offer reasons for taking one alternative… (More)

Although we have convincing evidence that a black hole bears an entropy proportional to its surface (horizon) area, the " statistical mechanical " explanation of this entropy remains unknown. Two… (More)
