Book Reviews-Anthropic Bias: Observation Selection Effects in Science and Philosophy
The centuries-old question why the universe is just so? has only recently begun to be discussed in serious quantitative manner. Above all, this is due to the vast accumulation of physical and
The Physics of God and the Quantum Gravity Theory of Everything
Analysis is given of the Omega Point cosmology, an extensively peer-reviewed proof (i.e., mathematical theorem) published in leading physics journals by professor of physics and mathematics Frank J.

The Universe as a Cyclic Organized Information System: John Wheeler's World Revisited
This essay highlights the scientific vision of John Archibald Wheeler, a giant of 20th century physics. His ideas provided the important insight that humanity may be in the very center of disclosure
In Quantum Physics, Free Will Leads to Nonconservation of Energy
Modern physical theories are deterministic in the sense that once we know the current state of the world, we can, in principle, predict all the future states. This was true for classical

Observational selection effects and probability
This thesis develops a theory of how to reason when our evidence has been subjected to observational selection effects. It has applications in cosmology, evolutionary biology, thermodynamics and the
Joule's 19th Century Energy Conservation Meta-Law and the 20th Century Physics (Quantum Mechanics and General Relativity): 21st Century Analysis
Joule’s Energy Conservation Law was the first “meta-law”: a general principle that all physical equations must satisfy. It has led to many important and useful physical discoveries. However, a recent
On the number of gods
A god is a cosmic designer-creator. Atheism says the number of gods is 0. But it is hard to defeat the minimal thesis that some possible universe is actualized by some possible god. Monotheists say
