**Quantum Mechanics, Free Will and the Game of Life**

In a 2009 paper, “The Strong Free Will Theorem,” Conway and Simon Kochen argue that quantum mechanics, plus relativity, provide grounds for belief in free will. Remote, apparently disconnected things can be “entangled,” influencing each other in mysterious ways, as if via…

**Wolfram Physics Project Seeks Theory Of Everything; Is It Revelation Or Overstatement?**

: The rule states that wherever a relation that matches {x,y} appears, it should be replaced by {{x ,y},{y,z}} , where z is a new element. In our current understanding, there are four fundamental forces in nature: the electromagnetic…

**New Theory of Everything Unites Quantum Mechanics with Relativity … and Much More**

And, once again, he says that applying these simple algorithms repeatedly leads to models — toy universes, if you like — of huge complexity. In particular, Wolfram acknowledges the work of Roger Penrose on combinatorial space-time in the…

**Creator of Wolfram Alpha Has a Bold Plan to Find a New Fundamental Theory of Physics**

Last week, Wolfram launched a new venture: the Wolfram Physics Project, an ambitious attempt to develop a new physics of our Universe. It is similar to two existing approaches to quantum gravity: causal set theory…

Topics: mathematics, philosophy, science-and-technology, astronomy-space, the-universe, physics, australia Last week, Wolfram launched a new venture: the Wolfram Physics Project, an ambitious attempt to develop a new physics of our universe. It is similar to two existing approaches to…

**A new kind of physics? Stephen Wolfram has a radical plan to build the universe from dots and lines**

Last week, Wolfram launched a new venture: the Wolfram Physics Project, an ambitious attempt to develop a new physics of our universe. It is similar to two existing approaches to quantum gravity:…

**Stephen Wolfram: The Path to a Fundamental Theory of Physics May Begin With a Hypergraph**

Sean Carroll, a California Institute of Technology physics professor and theoretical physicist specializing in quantum mechanics, gravity, and cosmology, tweeted that Wolfram’s approach is “cool and fun. In our model, everything in the universe—space, matter, whatever—…

**Physicist Stephen Wolfram thinks he’s on to a theory of everything, and wants help simulating the universe**

And from tiny, structureless rules out were coming space, time, relativity, gravity and hints of quantum mechanics. Similarly, Wolfram theorizes that the structure of the universe, as well as everything ‘in’ it, emerges from…

Since I first read a New Kind of Science from Stephen Wolfram, about a way of using elementary rules to build ever more complex outcomes I was captivated. However beyond some interesting patterns and nice pictures, there was no real way to use the developments in a day-to-day use. Stephen Wolfram has now published new work showing how simple network mappings could represent fundamental physics.
