Don't Expect a Higgs Boson Particle

Next week, "the world's largest, most expensive physics project to date" will "to reproduce conditions that were present less than a billionth of a second after the Big Bang that created the universe, yielding particles including the elusive Higgs boson" — At Large Hadron Collider, scientists await highest-energy proton beam collision. Ain't gonna happen.

Physicists Holger Bech Nielsen and Masao Ninomiya explained the many delays and problems with the project and suggested that it is ultimately doomed to fail, referenced in these earlier posts of mine — God vs. God Particle, Nature Abhors a Higgs Boson Particle, Time on that Time-Traveling Bird. Whatever happens, the world is not destined to end this way — Man-made Blackholes and Other Doomsday Scenarios.

The elusive particle, popping in and out of existence, underpinning almost all matter--hey, ever read about tzimtzum? Interesting parallels. Olam: the world, and the hiding place, the place of concealment.

What a strange thing that has been written in the text that the ancient civilization already had the knowledge of the particle theory. We are no one to take its credit.
