    In this work we investigate matter creation in the context of two types of varying speed of light (VSL) cosmologies. We write the energy conservation law arising from Einstein equations for a Friedmann–Robertson–Walker (FRW) line element in a flat universe, solve the field...

    The Gravitation Photons Universe (GPU) theory put forward in Phys. Essays 23, 388 (2010) is now reformulated. It underlies a cosmological model of a nonevolving on a large time scale universe. In the original formulation of the theory, special relativity was not accounted for. This shortcoming...

    Cognitive neuroscience treats space and time as our brain's representation of our sensory inputs. In this view, our perceptual reality is only a distant and convenient mapping of the physical processes causing the sensory inputs. Sound is a mapping of auditory inputs, and space is a...

    The article offers information about the outer space. Our universe is a vast expanse of mostly empty space, with stars, galaxies, and maybe other planets scattered about. So vast that if a spaceship were built so that it could travel at the speed of light, or 186,000 miles per second, it would...

    Presently, there exists some renewed interest in time varying speed of light theories as possible solutions of the major cosmological problems. It is often believed that the local Lorentzian invariance is broken if the speed of light in a vacuum is not a constant. We point out that this belief...
