‘God Particle’: Six big consequences of the Higgs boson discovery – CSMonitor.com

‘God Particle’: Physicists announced Thursday that they have confirmed the existence of the so-called God Particle a term disliked by physicists and theologians alike. Here are six of the biggest consequences of this discovery.

This track is an example of simulated data modelled for the ATLAS detector on the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN. The Higgs boson is produced in the collision of two protons at 14 TeV and quickly decays into four muons, a type of heavy electron that is not absorbed by the detector. The tracks of the muons are shown in yellow.

Physicists announced today (March 14) that a particle discovered at the world’s largest atom smasher last year is a Higgs boson, a long-sought particle thought to explain how other particles get their mass.

Discovered at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), where protons zip at near light-speed around a 17-mile-long (27 kilometers) underground ring beneath Switzerland and France, the Higgs boson particle is the last undiscovered piece of the puzzle predicted by the Standard Model, the reigning theory of particle physics.

Confirming a Higgs boson, physicists say, will have wide-reaching implications. Here are six of the biggest consequences:

1. The origin of mass

The Higgs boson has long been thought the key to resolving the mystery of the origin of mass. The Higgs boson is associated with a field, called the Higgs field, theorized to pervade the universe. As other particles travel though this field, they acquire mass much as swimmers moving through a pool get wet, the thinking goes.

“The Higgs mechanism is the thing that allows us to understand how the particles acquire mass,” said Joao Guimaraes da Costa, a physicist at Harvard University who is the Standard Model Convener at the LHC’s ATLAS experiment, last year when the discovery was announced. “If there was no such mechanism, then everything would be massless.”

Confirming the particle is a Higgs would also confirm that the Higgs mechanism for particles to acquire mass is correct. “This discovery bears on the knowledge of how mass comes about at the quantum level, and is the reason we built the LHC. It is an unparalleled achievement,” Caltech professor of physics Maria Spiropulu, co-leader of the CMS experiment, said in a statement last year. [Gallery: Search for the Higgs Boson]

And, it may offer clues to the next mystery down the line, which is why individual particles have the masses that they do. “That could be part of a much larger theory,” said Harvard University particle physicist Lisa Randall. “Knowing what the Higgs boson is, is the first step of knowing a little more about what that theory could be. It’s connected.”

2. The Standard Model

The Standard Model is the reigning theory of particle physics that describes the universe’s very small constituents. Every particle predicted by the Standard Model has been discovered except one: the Higgs boson.

“It’s the missing piece in the Standard Model,” Jonas Strandberg, a researcher at CERN working on the ATLAS experiment, said last year of the particle announcement. “So it would definitely be a confirmation that the theories we have now are right.”

So far, the Higgs boson seems to match up with predictions made by the Standard Model. Even so, the Standard Model itself isn’t thought to be complete. It doesn’t encompass gravity, for example, and leaves out the dark matter thought to make up 98 percent of all matter in the universe. [6 Weird Facts About Gravity]

“Clear evidence that the new particle is the Standard Model Higgs boson still would not complete our understanding of the universe,” Patty McBride, head of the CMS Center at Fermilab, said today (March 14) in a statement. “We still wouldn’t understand why gravity is so weak and we would have the mysteries of dark matter to confront. But it is satisfying to come a step closer to validating a 48-year-old theory.”

3. The electroweak force

The confirmation of the Higgs also helps to explain how two of the fundamental forces of the universe the electromagnetic force that governs interactions between charged particles, and the weak force that’s responsible for radioactive decay can be unified. [9 Unsolved Physics Mysteries]

Every force in nature is associated with a particle. The particle tied to electromagnetism is the photon, a tiny, massless particle. The weak force is associated with particles called the W and Z bosons, which are very massive.

The Higgs mechanism is thought to be responsible for this.

“If you introduce the Higgs field, the W and Z bosons mix with the field, and through this mixing they acquire mass,” Strandberg said. “This explains why the W and Z bosons have mass, and also unifies the electromagnetic and weak forces into the electroweak force.”

Though other evidence has helped buffer the union of these two forces, the Higgs discovery may seal the deal.

4. Supersymmetry

The theory supersymmetry is also affected by the Higgs discovery. This idea posits that every known particle has a “superpartner” particle with slightly different characteristics.

Supersymmetry is attractive because it could help unify some of the other forces of nature, and even offers a candidate for the particle that makes up dark matter. So far, though, scientists have found indications of only a Standard Model Higgs boson, without any strong hints of supersymmetric particles.

5. Validation of LHC

The Large Hadron Collider is the world’s largest particle accelerator. It was built for around $10 billion by the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) to probe higher energies than had ever been reached on Earth. Finding the Higgs boson was touted as one of the machine’s biggest goals.

The newly announced finding offers major validation for the LHC and for the scientists who’ve worked on the search for many years.

“This discovery bears on the knowledge of how mass comes about at the quantum level, and is the reason we built the LHC. It is an unparalleled achievement,” Spiropulu said in a statement last year. “More than a generation of scientists has been waiting for this very moment and particle physicists, engineers, and technicians in universities and laboratories around the globe have been working for many decades to arrive at this crucial fork. This is the pivotal moment for us to pause and reflect on the gravity of the discovery, as well as a moment of tremendous intensity to continue the data collection and analyses.”

The discovery of the Higgs also has major implications for scientist Peter Higgs and his colleagues who first proposed the Higgs mechanism in 1964. The finding also shines a symbolic light on the boson’s namesake, the late Indian physicist and mathematician Satyendranath Bose, who along with Albert Einstein, helped to define bosons. A class of elementary particles, bosons (which include gluons and gravitons) mediate interactions between fermions (including quarks, electrons and neutrinos), the other group of fundamental building blocks of the universe.

6. Is the universe doomed?

The Higgs boson discovery opens the door to new calculations that weren’t previously possible, scientists say, including one that suggests the universe is in for a cataclysm billions of years from now.

The mass of the Higgs boson is a critical part of a calculation that portends the future of space and time. At around 126 times the mass of the proton, the Higgs is just about what would be needed to create a fundamentally unstable universe that would lead to a cataclysm billions of years from now.

“This calculation tells you that many tens of billions of years from now there’ll be a catastrophe,” Joseph Lykken, a theoretical physicist at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory in Batavia, Ill., said last month at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.

“It may be the universe we live in is inherently unstable, and at some point billions of years from now it’s all going to get wiped out,” added Lykken, a collaborator on the CMS experiment.

CALL TO ACTION – I do NOT consent to chemtrails.

Just got this in email from Inelia Benz and wanted to share-together we can change the world, whether that is working together in praying, or in taking personal action on energetic or political levels. The powers-that-were would like us to feel powerless, but we know it ain’t so;-)

For over a week now, in Sacramento, the chemtrail spraying has been worse than ever before. There is not one piece of sky that is not covered with a chemtrail at all times, day and night. A friend who is presently driving through California, has just told me that it is the same EVERYWHERE. She takes this drive on a regular basis, and has never seen it so bad.

I woke up three days ago with a huge migraine, my body letting me know there is something seriously wrong. As you might now, I used to get migraines all the time, but by drinking distilled water every day, I was able to put a stop to them, and lower back pain too.

However, this time, and after over a year, the migraine is back. My body feels toxic.

And, when I joined the dots, I was able to get a clear “yes” from my body as to the origin of the toxicity. Chemtrails.

My car is quite dark in color, and every day now, parked outside, it is covered in white powder. I have not had it analyzed, as hundreds of other individuals have done so already, and the results are clear. Barium, aluminum, and more toxic chemicals designed to make us “heavy” and not able to absorb the new light from the sun, among other things.

It has never been so bad in Sacramento.

Now, as you know, I DO NOT give you bad news without providing you with a workable solution, so here it is:

  • Process any anger, fear, frustration of hopelessness around chemtrails. (Use the text from the fear processing exercise page, and change the words according to the feeling)
  • Once your energy is in a place of power, and not disempowerment or emotional disbalance, clearly state in a clear voice, that you DO NOT CONSENT to chemtrails. Or any other type of lowering vibration or polluting of Earth and our bodies.
    Make this statement, write it, send it to all your friends, post it on FB, twitter, and every other social media network you belong to. Let the world know that you do NOT CONSENT to chemtrails.
  • One more action you can take today, is to read and join this social movement: http://aircrap.org/including-stop-chemtrails/336860/
  • Another action you can take is to forward this email to everyone you know.
  • Start drinking distilled water, it does help! By increasing the amount I was drinking, I was able to lower the migraine pain to manageable amounts. And also research and carry out a weekly detox for your physical body.

Yours in ACTION,

Inelia Benz

New Moon Phase – Moon in Aries/Taurus

The keyword for today is diversify. This is in response to the dominant energy that is adjusting or shifting circumstances and relationships (see yesterday’s report). There’s a “newness” to this energy that wants us to embrace possibilities we haven’t considered or haven’t given enough creedance. Undeveloped or forgotten interests and talents are trying to come into awareness to be reborn in out lives. We are still in the energy of the New Moon and the combination of astrological aspects today fosters strong development any intention that is made.

The energy is bringing like toward like and pulling unalike and unalike farther apart. If a situation or relationship is producing a loss for you, is this something you’ve known was not in your highest and best interests.? Holes that are left will be transformed into something else – the energy guarantees this. Release any pain to the planet and ask that it be transformed.

Just a reminder about tonight’s interview on “Living Astrology.” Hope you can join us.

The manuscript of survival – part 282 by Aisha North

As so many of you have already ascertained, the speed and the intensity of this clearing process is indeed like nothing you have ever come across before. You are literally being emptied out of anything that might be a hindrance to you in the time ahead, for only those that travel light, will be able to reach that destination they so long for. You see, this is not a sort of trial and error project, this is something that is indeed a very serious endeavor, and as such, nothing is left to chance here. So whatever you will experience in the hours and days ahead, know that this is all a carefully planned part of this process, and not something done on a whim.

We say this in order to remind you all that you are indeed carefully monitored by us throughout it all, and we have the full scope on what is indeed needed in order to prepare you all in the best possible way for the next stage of this journey. For you are all so very close now dear ones, and what you have in front of you may seem to be very daunting for you all. But know that even if you feel the pull from this gaping maw of expectations starting to pull you all in, know that you will not be allowed to enter until we deem you ready to do so. So yes, this is all perfectly orchestrated, and it will be given each and every one of you when the time is right. For this is indeed a series of injections of light, to call them that, and they will have some rather intense effects as they each home in on their intended targets. For this is indeed like those heat-seeking missiles you see on your video screens, that seem to uncannily circle in on their target and the hit right in the middle of the bulls eye.

So too it is with all of this, and even if the words we use may seem rather cold or even frightening, know that what we refer to are actually missiles of light of the most pure and profound kind, and what they will do to you all is nothing short of magical. For they will all penetrate to the very core of your being, and when they do, they will set off a sort of a chain reaction that is almost like the countdown process to a launch of your spaceships. For we are all gathered at the control center now, ready and eager to start this, the last in a very, very long series of fusillades of energy that will engender such a positive response in you all, you have no idea. But on the outside, you might not feel the impact from all of these missiles as strongly as you mayhaps envisage at the moment, but do not think that they have no effect if you yourself have no sense of them entering your system. For make no mistake, you will all be hit by these love bombs, and they will have a devastating effect on everything that has been implanted into you in order to hinder your evolvement into a true lighted being. For nothing of the old will be left standing after this barrage of light, and as such, the charred ruins of the old and obsolete will soon become apparent to you all. But, as we have talked about earlier, it is indeed from these ashes that the new you, and through that, the new world will arise. So prepare to be hit hard but lovingly by something that will literally change you into something that is profoundly different from the person you still see yourself as today.

As one of the people who were organizing protests and vigils against this ill conceived horrorshow in Iraq before it took place I am amazed and grateful for the time, care and scholarship that went into creating this clear, easy to read and well documented article. I highly recommend that you read it, and share it widely. It is a disgrace and vivid shame to our national character that Americans for the most part seem to have slid into complete complacency about the ridiculous, violent and corporate controlled actions of our “By the People for the People” so called democratic government. We may complain about what the Germans did not do to stop the camps, but it daily looks more and more like the pot calling the kettle-can we own up to our own complicity and take back our government? Or do we think Orwell’s tales were fun little comedies? I guess we will see…..

Cheri Speak

Ten years ago – on March 19, 2003, our country invaded another and called it Operation Iraqi Freedom. It was a “preemptive war” and it was illegal according to international law. We Americans held our heads higher, our backs straighter, and went about our lives as if this new aggressive maneuvering was OK. We  proudly ordered “freedom fries” off the local McDonald’s value menu while they spent the first of   more than 3 trillion of our hard-earned tax dollars (including the billions that are “missing”).

It wasn’t OK

It still isn’t OK, and yet, we’re still there occupying a land that is not ours. Taking lives we have no right to take. Changing lives so profoundly that instead of being greeted “as liberators” with “chocolates and flowers” as promised by our former President and Vice president, the flowers are laid on graves…
