Since I finished my physics PhD in late 2018, I have been on a journey hunting a theory of everything and discovering strange worlds along the way. I am trying to think about physics more creatively, in the style of physicists like Faraday and Lorentz, whose task was to imagine models for completely new phenomena. There is still much work like this to be done in programmed virtual spaces, and never has there been a better time for a physicist like me (a coder since age 12) to discover new physical phenomena using code, by testing thought experiments at the outer limits of human understanding.

I have a long ToDo list, and what I've created here is just the beginning of my research. PolyPhys is essentially my virtual laboratory, with a diverse array of interactive apps representing high-level concepts in a way that both experts and non-experts can appreciate. All you have to do is watch and play, and if you find yourself observing something beautiful or perplexing while using these apps, then you may just be experiencing reality at its most fundamental level.

Thank you for helping me to create and share these learning tools with the world.
