Conformally Compactified Minkowski Space: Myths and Facts (by Arkadiusz Jadczyk): Maxwell's equations are invariant not only under the Lorentz group but also under the conformal group. Irving E. Segal has shown that while the Galilei group is a limiting case of the Poincare group, and the Poincare group comes from a contraction of the conformal group, the conformal group ends the road, it is rigid. There are thus compelling mathematical and physical reasons for promoting the conformal group to the role of the fundamental symmetry of space-time, more important than the Poincare group that formed the group-theoretical basis of special and general theories of relativity. While the action of the conformal group on Minkowski space is singular, it naturally extends to a nonsingular action on the compactified Minkowski space, often referred to in the literature as “Minkowski space plus light-cone at infinity". Unfortunately in some textbooks the true structure of the compactified Minkowski space is sometimes misrepresented, including false proofs and statements that are simply wrong.

In this paper we present in, a simple way, two different constructions of the compactified Minkowski space, both stemming from the original idea of Roger Penrose, but putting stress on the mathematically subtle points and relating the constructions to the Clifford algebra tools. In particular the little-known antilinear Hodge star operator is introduced in order to connect real and complex structures of the algebra. A possible relation to Waldyr Rodrigues' idea of gravity as a plastic deformation of Minkowski's vacuum is also indicated.

Considerations: Classical and Quantum (by B. G. Sidharth): In this paper we consider certain Classical, Semi Classical and Quantum situations with interesting consequences. Starting with Entanglement we go on to deviations from Special Relativity, leading to the possibility of super luminal neutrinos, if they exist escaping from Black Holes. We also consider extra energy that is generated due to Quantum effects, the decay of fast moving Bosons, as for example in the case of Kaons, and finally the magnetism generated by non commutative effects.

The Quaternionic Particle Mass (by Lukasz A. Glinka, Andrew W. Beckwith): In this article we derive the formula for a particle mass arising from the quaternionic particle physics model recently offered by Hans van Leunen.

The Physical Universe as a Divine Quantum Information Structure (by Peter Kohut): The information essence of the Universe dominates over its physical aspect. Its dynamic hierarchic information structure is a manifestation of a divine Mind with its Idea (Intelligence), so the Universe is rational and comprehensible for us. Our individual consciousness as a part of universal consciousness of God deals with information carried by energy. Only consciousness can give the real sense to information coming to us from the objective world through energy supporters. Divine universal as well as our individual consciousness (subject) create the internal side of the Universe reflecting its external side (object) represented by structured quantum energy as a holder of divine information structure and architecture. Information encodes the creative power of consciousness. The physical Universe (non-living and living Nature) with its unbelievably rich information contents is a true food for our senses and our mind in the process of our conscious cognition and creativity.

Bhrgu: The God of God Particle (by Pinaki Ganguly): It is suggested that there exists a conceptual proximity of Rishi Bhrgu with Higgs boson. It also brings Higgs field and gravity within its fold. One has to marvel at the intuitive powers of the human mind, and the Vedic Rishis are the finest example of that. This is a queue that Nature has given us and missing it will cast us in darkness. Thus it is said that, Bhrgu is the “God” of “God Particle”!
