'God Particle'?

Post by mnaz » June 4th, 2008, 8:02 am

Rain hasn't stopped all day,
dishwater gray, no hole in my theory.
Pregnant gray inverts all known deserts.

If universe is the answer, what is a question?
They will gear up to smash particles ferociously,
in hideous tunnels, miles of magnets and catwalks,
intentionally seeking unintentional markers,
as the ageless sun sets nearly purple again,
and science is a little full of itself.

No, I mean it. They really are looking for a "God Particle".
Science can be oh so poetic... I think I'll just just keep
googling it and adding on here. She blinded me with
science..

Leave it to science, the riddle,
to find God in a particle accelerator.
Not just any one but a massive tunnel,
from here to somewhere underneath France,
underground rings of superconducting magnets
like a ducted steel octopus Star Trek nightmare.

Let science tell it in its own words,
the text of search, its own testimony...

wouldn't it be easier to look for god within....must be a heavily funded
project...wonder who's payin' for it....hmmmmmmmm

I have it on good authority
that god is really uncle remus
and he drives either an orange
or a yellow caddy
that doesn't run on gasoline, no
because in the tank are
many happy minnows
and each one's last name is
perpetual motion

this won't be discovered
but verified by science

Mnaz, the Tao of Physics was one of my favorite books. It seems to have disappeared down a worm hole. I can't wait to read your book! Your poems percolate my mind.

Is it really any surprise that man would seek the God Particle when it is right in front of him intangibly?
Is it really any surprise, the likelihood, that man has been controlling the weather, to suit his greed, then blames the bad weather on God?
Is it really any surprise, anything?
No fist, no weapon, no words can solve the blight of ignorance, which indeed will be the source of our total demise.
Indeed, intelligence anymore, must be kept secret, like a sin.

"in the tank are many happy minnows,

seems about right, L-rod.

saw, it would be more cost-effective to look within.

john, physics seems to be wrestling lately with its own restlessness.

hester, indeed, nothing comes to me as all that much of a surprise anymore..

aka Higgs boson?

Scientists are fascinating to me, especially physicists.
And so I was reading through the articles of the last year or so.

".. a subatomic particle fundamental to understanding the nature of matter,
but so elusive that, physicists quip, it can only be compared to divinity."

"Last week an international consortium stepped up the pace by announcing in Beijing, China, a design for the world's most expensive atom smasher, the $6.7-billion International Linear Collider. The scheme, which could be extended to 50 kilometres and a trillion electron volts, will hurl these particles at close to the speed of light. The resultant collision could unlock dark matter and dark energy, the invisible, enigmatic substances."

Building that Babel tower again? (Sorry, cheap shot).

"... a tiny adjustment in the magnetic field throws the proton into the path of another particle beam traveling just as fast in the opposite direction, and everything goes kerflooey."

That's the easy part. Processing numberless aftermath is the challenge.

"Physicists say they're not sure what will emerge from those collisions. They're hunting a mysterious, hypothetical particle called Higgs boson. It is also possible they will make miniature black holes or discover new dimensions of space-time."

"Alvaro De Rujula, staff scientist and theoretical physicist at CERN-- the Conseil Europeen pour la Recherche Nucleaire-- puts it this way: 'Particle physics, which is my business, has been quiet for a long time because we were too successful in the 1970's, when a thing called the standard model was invented... We have never found any deviation from these models, so we've been right for thirty years... It's sort of boring.'"

"De Rujula thinks there has to be more than the standard model... It leaves some big, almost philosophical questions unanswered. For example, why do things weigh what they weigh?"

That bit about being bored
'Particle physics, which is my business, has been quiet for a long time because we were too successful in the 1970's, when a thing called the standard model was invented... We have never found any deviation from these models, so we've been right for thirty years... It's sort of boring.'"

reminded me of something B. Russell said over 80 years ago. According to e-dog Russell would parody himself so maybe it was tongue in cheek but he said he was bored with physical science cause it was reaching its limits. No mystery.



Never could work my way through the Tao of Physics so I am going to take John's word for it.

But it sounds right to me.
This was beautiful mnaz.
Maybe elegant, as in the way an equation is elegant.

We'd better hope that the particle brainiacs are right, and that (unproven) "Hawking radiation" gets these little buggers before they grow bigger. Can you imagine suddenly being sucked into imploding ground?... That could ruin your vacation plans...

black hole as metaphor
surveillance technology
emf robotics and mind control

anything approaching the speed of light

would exist at equal distance
of the sun and earth relation

relative to size

See Bricmont's writing for rather important (and deterministic) revisions of pop-mystic interpretations of quantum mechanics. (the g-word : das ist verboten)
