God created the universe so say the theologists. The atheistic have no real answers, to question is sometimes the best answer. Their say is "Did he create the stars simply for our viewing pleasure?". Science is based on validation in a laboratory through the assumption based on current data, i.e. what we have in real word. Invention and discovery is always beyond the current data. Mind is dictated by duality of ego life-death, have-have not, pleasure-perversion, poverty-abundance. The truth is always beyond the mind data i.e. what is. It is Man's grant for the truth that has made survival possible of diseases that wiped out populations like swarms of bees, discoveries live that till now that are still happening as we wonder in absolute awe like a child seeing the moon for the first time. Did you know on a full moonlight corals get into a sexual frenzy (actually it was an orgy) and reproduce? That was a discovery around 2 years ago. Or that by 2050 the crippled would be able to grow their arms and legs (re-modeled from biology of lizards) or that in April this year 657 new islands were discovered. (What were Google maps and all the satellites doing?) The quest for attaining the infinite is where the truth lies. Nature's mysteries keep unravelling and like a child we discover and savor them. So who really created the Universe?
The CERN Experiment - a date with nature
In man's quest for the infinite to discover the laws of nature and prove them in a laboratory in 2008 scientists at CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research created the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). It is the world's largest and highest-energy particle accelerator which could unravel some of the most basic questions that have intrigued man for since the beginning. One of the major discoveries happened yesterday.
The God Particle
On 22nd April according to a release by CERN, Large Hadron Collider set a new world record for beam intensity at a hadron collider when it collided beams with a luminosity of 4.67 × 1032cm-2s-1. This exceeds the previous world record of 4.024 × 1032cm-2s-1, which was set by the US Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory's Tevatron collider in 2010, and marks an important milestone in LHC commissioning.
In other words this could be IT according to physicts. The world's largest atom smasher, LHC, Large Hadron Collider, may have detected a long-sought subatomic particle called the Higgs boson, also known as the "God particle. So what would this lead to. If the news is correct this could be one for the biggest moments for science. This discovery could address some of the most fundamental questions of physics, of existence and the nature of creation and deepest laws of nature from a scientific perspective.
The Last Word
I love physics, my favorite subject, but still think this is far from the Truth. It takes a small seed to grow into a beautiful tree that gives fragrance, ecology and fruits which we eat and after that they dissolve into the earth. It takes a man to gather fruits, get them into an industrial unit, pollute the air and throw waste in rivers and create a can of juice which after use isn't even absorbed by nature. In other words man's quest for evolution from rudimentary to infinite, the refinement continues. LHC is great effort but as compared to the real Truth still a bullock cart compared to sedans we have today. Yet the man who invented the bullock cart is the one who made this sedan happen. If Sherlock Holmes had the word he would have said "Rudimentary, my dear Watson." I say "Elementary my friend, education starts from here".
