Scientists keep smashing things together to try to find the smallest particle that exists. They found quarks, the building blocks of protons and neutrons that exist in everything around you, with Murray Gell-Mann’s discovery, and some postulate that scientists working at CERN, near Geneva Switzerland, are looking for the ‘God Particle,’ but will the latest discovery of two new exotic particles that appeared inside the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) change everything, or nothing at all?
Zi-b Prime & Zi-b-Star
These exotic particles existed in theory until just recently, when scientists finally figured out how to see them in the flesh. These bayrons, Xib‘– and Xib*– (pronounced “zi-b-prime” and “zi-b-star”), are in a category of particles that include the more recognizable proton and neutron. Their names have the familiar-sounding ring of some futuristic pop star. They have been measured and scrutinized, and after the billions spent to find them ($13.5 billion alone was spent to find the Higgs Boson), scientists only know one thing for sure – that the existence of these two new strange particles likely means that there are plenty more exotic particles waiting to be found.
Zi-b prime and zi-b-star were reported to the Physical Review Letters when discovered. These particles are different because of the arrangement of the quarks’ spins.
So a physicist could go on indefinitely explaining the quantum spin of the new particles. To put it succinctly, they spin in parallel instead of in opposition, as is the behavior of most quarks, but more importantly, what does all this mean? And why are scientists looking so darned hard to find the tiniest particle that exists?
Even the latest discovery makes quantum reality more elusive. Frank Wilczek, a theoretical physicist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology who won the Nobel Prize for helping to formulate QCD, said of the exotic particles:
“We supposedly have a theory that tells us how these particles are supposed to behave and in principle it should open new doors. But in practice, our ability to calculate is quite limited.”
Our ability to understand the Universe, even with the most intelligent minds, is indeed quite limited.
There Is No Such Thing As Nothing In Science
When the Higgs Boson was discovered, scientists hailed it as the God Particle.
Dr. Peter Higgs, the 84-year old who the Higgs Boson was named for, once said:
“…these particles are just packages of energy of some kind of field, and the feature [that] distinguishes this kind of theory, which leads to this kind of symmetry breaking, is the existence of what we, theoretical physicists, call the vacuum, which means nowadays something different than what it used to mean. It’s just the lowest energy state that you could possibly have in which there are no particles around but there may be something around. And that something around can be a background field of some sort, which pervades the universe.”
The Energy that Pervades the Universe
Curious minds yearn to know what propels this Universe. What creates planets that are large enough to swallow our own whole, or star clusters that are so many light years away, that to reach them with conventional technologies, we’d have to live 300 yeas?
This mystery stays as an inscrutable fact for a reason, according to ancient wisdom. It rings through numerous ancient books, from the Bhagavad Gita to the Diamond Sutra, and even the Etruscan Gold Book of the Pythagorean’s.
“What pervades all of this is inexhaustible and indestructible.”
Nassim Haramein is a physicist who looks at the finding of a ‘God’ particle a little differently. He says to look for the God Pattern, instead. He says that CERN will NEVER find the God Particle. You can watch this video to find out why:
