I was reading some comments and criticism on the new Spirit Science video about the God Particles… At first I was kind of in shock at all of the negativity on there. Charlie said it right in the video I posted in this blog - Sometimes what people do when giving Criticism is take the most amazing advice, ball it up in a fist and punch someone in the head with it!
I mean, that’s the vibe all over the comments…
The fact that this has 18 likes has to mean something… but what exactly would that be?
And yet, even among all of the punching and kicking and screaming about how terrible of a person I am or how awful at science I am… there are still some wonderful comments and questions as well, and I’d like to do my best to answer them, sometimes with more questions that expands the thoughts more, and sometimes with some of my own theories and ideas as well.

Today I present to you a video which has been in the works in my head for over a year now. In truth, I wanted to get this one out last December 21st, but it seems it was not meant to be. I started the SS22 “Light” series last year right at this time though, and it continues on! Here we go
The God Particle. You’ve probably heard talk about that for a number of years now, with the Higgs Boson discovery or the Large Hadron Collider’s constant smashing of tiny-things together… or maybe you just watched it in The Big Bang Theory.
The revelation that particle interactions, the most basic events in nature, may be consequences of geometry significantly advances a decades-long effort to reformulate quantum field theory, the body of laws describing elementary particles and their interactions. Interactions that were previously calculated with mathematical formulas thousands of terms long can now be described by computing the volume of the corresponding jewel-like “amplituhedron,” which yields an equivalent one-term expression.
“The degree of efficiency is mind-boggling,” said Jacob Bourjaily, a theoretical physicist at Harvard University and an author of the first of two papers detailing the new idea. “You can easily do, on paper, computations that were infeasible even with a computer before.” – Read the Full Scientific Article
I want to write about something sciencey, something exciting that is going to change the way our world works!
The only thing that comes to mind right off the top of my head is the topic of the new Spirit Science video, which, at the time of writing this i’m still working on it… It’s taking a really long time, and is a VERY big video.. almost 17 minutes.
I’ve had a really hard time putting this one together, in fact, it’s been part of the reason there hasn’t been a lot of spirit science videos this year. I’ll write more about Spirit Science later and what i’m trying to create with it, but in the mean time:
The topic of the video is “The God Particles”. It’s plural because I believe there are more than one… In fact, when you really map it out, there are 3. One is Male, One is Female, and One happens when the Male and Female come together in union. Continue reading
