back to article God particle may be within our grasp

Physicists working on the Large Hadron Collider will be announcing their latest batch of results at a seminar next week. It’s only been a day since CERN announced the seminar at which the ATLAS and CMS experiments would present the status of their search for the elusive God particle, but the blogosphere is already alight with …

Shush

I'd got a Higgs as a Christmas present for somebody, and now you've gone and let the cat out of the box.

dog particle

should be called uber or epic particle or particle king or better yet:

"One Particle to rule them all, One Particle to find them,

One Particle to bring them all and in the darkness bind them"

Brilliant..

I was wondering what dyslexic scientists worked on..

(I'm intermitted dyslexic myself, compensated by an approach to reading that is pattern based - kinda crap for learning new words but great for speed scanning).

The physicist in me is currently running around in circles going WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

It's actually more exciting than christmas!

really....

im slightly disapointed. I was hoping they couldnt find it...just think of all the whcked out theories would be fighting for mainstream.

this just means we are on the right path but somthings not quite right.

personally the current theory just fails the occrims razor test for me.

well they havent ACTULLY found it yet.

The Fox News headline:

"God particle located"

ergo:

"Proof that god exists"

FEARFUL SYMMETRY

(from Songs Of Experiments)

-- James Ph. Kotsybar

Beyond notice, out of sight

in dimensions curled up tight,

shall only weakened gravity

suggest your supersymmetry?

Do you match, sine qua non,

boson to a fermion?

Will you ever edify

how the forces unify?

In what quanta, small or large

will we find your mass and charge?

In what membranes do you roam?

Which dimensions call you home?

In magnetic chambers narrow,

will you tell us of time’s arrow?

Have you broken, in the past?

How long do your components last?

Quarks from gluons will divide

when we make hadrons collide:

Will this show us where you hide

or leave us still unsatisfied?

Beyond notice, out of site

in dimensions curled up tight,

will only highest energy

reveal your supersymmetry?

UNPUBLISHED FINDINGS

-- James Ph. Kotsybar

They granulate the universe

to pulp

crashing particles only newly found.

They figure their trajectories

and gulp,

“So much data upon which to expound!”

Their energies

unbound by quantum course,

they separate the world

we think we know.

They rip particles into force

by force.

Unification’s where they say they’ll go.

When, at last,

they prove life is illusion,

where do you think they’ll publish the result?

They may just ascend beyond confusion

and leave us in the lurch of the occult,

for once that testimony’s imparted,

expostulation just seems false-hearted.

What is sigma

I would like to comment on the probability of a scientific discovery tuesday.

Scientists measure their experiments by a term called sigma.

There is no scientific discovery about a sigma 2.5 or 3.00 as probably will be the case on tuesday. Maybe even lower.

If Newton were sitting under his appletree and made 100 observations, and in one instance the apple didn't hit him in the head, it is a sigma 2.5. A sigma 5.o is EVERY time that the apple falls down, and that includes doing it a million times and more.

THAT is a scientific discovery.

At sigma 3 the apple fals wrong one out of every 370 times you do the experiment. That is not a scientific discovery either.

My prediction is that the Higgs particle never will reach close to a sigma 5.

Behind the prediction there is a theory, if you are interested.
