Hadron Gone

Or, ghosts are gone?

The short version of all this is that Professor Brian Cox has said that if ghosts exist the CERN atom smasher should have found them by now. His apparent reasoning is because the Large Hadron Collider using the Standard Model of Particle Physics hasn’t found a ghost, and the particle / energy interaction levels they measure at scale wise make it inconcieveable they can be real.

Um. Okay.

Look here’s the thing, I’m not even going to tell you I have more than a passing idea of how the Collider works. I know the basics of it and with that I’m going to say that a project set up to see one thing doesn’t disprove another because of its non results. Okay it can but I don’t think so in this case. I get the energy / particle / mass thing he’s saying but just because he thinks we know it all doesn’t mean we do. And we don’t have to look too far back in time to see some things scientists said were definitively fact that just aren’t and have been disproved (ie: the earth is flat, atoms are the smallest particle, the sun goes around the earth, etc..).

There’s just a bunch of stuff we likely don’t know or are capable of understanding yet. We have to be open to that, to the fact we at our current state of evolution aren’t the end all be all wonder we like to thin we are, and that’s okay.

Boo,

we’ll be back in a few.
