2021-11-10: What If Our Understanding of Gravity Is Wrong?

  • 03:18: What if Newtonian gravity breaks down  both for very strong AND very weak fields?
  • 06:10: ... - in that general relativity does not reproduce MOND in what we call the “weak field limit.” Instead it does what it was designed to do - it reproduces good ...

2020-12-22: Navigating with Quantum Entanglement

  • 05:23: ... you need a lot of electrons to register Earth’s extremely weak field - far more than you could fit into the microscopic structures within a ...

2020-11-04: Electroweak Theory and the Origin of the Fundamental Forces

  • 07:56: Quantizing this field gives 3 bosons which are *almost* exactly what we need to make a gauge theory of the weak field work.
  • 09:10: But wouldn't that mean we're throwing away the core idea that gave us our weak field?
  • 11:07: But what specifically is happening with the weak field?

2019-09-03: Is Earth's Magnetic Field Reversing?

  • 07:13: Well, actually ANY weak field – even random bits of field – for example thermal fluctuations - are enough to initiate this runaway effect.
