God particle found?

Scientists are tricky sorts. Look at their "Metric" system of measurement. Theroetically, basing measurement on tens makes a kind of simpleminded sense. Just add or subtract zeros. But, the real, physical world is created and perpetuated by bifurcated branchings. One cell divides into two cells, et-cetera. Dividing by folding in half is simple and efficient.
Computers, a much more important and useful discovery than nuculear weapons of mass distruction.
Computer intelligence is based on a bi-nary measuring system.
Setting standards by certain human body measurements makes no more nor less sense than using some arbitrary division of the length of a portion of the planet.


Here's the real reason why the scientific community uses the metric systen.
Funding requests are read by senators and congressmen. People who are easily led and easily fooled. (read the news papers)
So they cannot tell the difference between 2.3x 102 dollars and 2.3 x 104 dollars, thinking, perhaps, if they think at all, that it might be twice as much.

Big bucks for science.

And they don't really need it. Most of the things they need their gigantic "pocketa-pocketa" machines for are easily accomplished using very simple measures.

Parenthetically, the european auto industry likes to take advantage of the fact that they can brag about a speed of "100", when in reality it is just "60".

I'm not saying that the discoveries are not sometimes accurate, just that they could be gotten to using simpler, cheaper methods.

Scientists have been searching for the soi-disant "God particle", the sub, or sub-sub
atomic particle that explains everything.
I'm sure that science considers the quest to be chimerical.
Einstein has declared that "God does not play dice with the universe". No, Al, dice have only six sides and come in pairs, you don't even need "the calculus" to figure that one out.
Whereas "God" and "the universe" are concepts that are beyond us all.

So, using simple methods, inexpensive methods, methods that can be safely confined to my small basement laboratory, I have continued the research and achieved success.

I have discovered the "God" particle.

Starting with the discoveries of those who have gone before, I have extended the search and come to the following conclusion.

There is no doubt that the discovery of the four types of quark, up, down, charm, and strange, are accurate depictions of the sub-atomic world, I decided to investigate other particles. After long and harrowing study, I found that the underappreciated "Gluon" seemed to be a rich field for discovery. "Gluons" are binding particles, the things that hold other particles together. I do not need to tell you the importance of the need for that.
Following that trail, I found that there are more binding particles than were heretofore recognised.
To wit, in addition to the gluon, there are nailons, screwons, rivetons weldons, solderons, and velcrons.
Furthermore, each quark uses each of these binders in various combinations
That is to say, there are, for instance, nail-downs, nail-charms, et-cetera.
All combinations are used. Not all combinations are used in the same numbers,
in fact, some are used hardly at all, and some are used more often.
In fact, one of the combinations is way more prevalent and is, in fact "The God Particle"

I'm sure it will come as no surprise that the universe and all it contains is comprised of Screw-ups.

My God, and Your God, sir, what a effortless mastery of math, physics (quantum at that) and metaphysical theory you have!You have managed to produce a quantity of double-speak of psuedo-Sciencespeak that is worthy of a government phamplet, or the syllibus for a government funded research project.

Here is some my wonderful research:

Binary vs. Decimal Measurements

One of the most confusing problems regarding PC statistics and measurements is the fact that the computing world has two different definitions for most of its measurement terms. :^) Capacity measurements are usually expressed in kilobytes (thousands of bytes), in megabytes (millions of bytes), or gigabytes (billions of bytes). Due to a mathematical coincidence, however, there are two different meanings for each of these measures.

Computers are digital and store data using binary numbers, or powers of two, while humans normally use decimal numbers, expressed as powers of ten. As it turns out, two to the tenth power, 2^10, is 1,024, which is very close in value to 1,000 (10^3). Similarly, 2^20 is 1,048,576, which is approximately 1,000,000 (10^6), and 2^30 is 1,073,741,824, close to 1,000,000,000 (10^9). When computers and binary numbers first began to be used regularly, computer scientists noticed this similarity, and for convenience, "hijacked" the abbreviations normally used for decimal numbers and began applying them to binary numbers. Thus, 2^10 was given the prefix "kilo", 2^20 was called "mega", and 2^30 "giga".

This shorthand worked fairly well when used only by technicians who worked regularly with computers; they knew what they were talking about, and nobody else really cared. Over the years however, computers have become mainstream, and the dual notation has led to quite a bit of confusion and inconsistency. In many areas of the PC, only binary measures are used. For example, "64 MB of system RAM" always means 64 times 1,048,576 bytes of RAM, never 64,000,000. In other areas, only decimal measures are found--a "28.8K modem" works at a maximum speed of 28,800 bits per second, not 29,491.

Storage devices however are where the real confusion comes in. Some companies and software packages use binary megabytes and gigabytes, and some use decimal megabytes and gigabytes. What's worse is that the percentage discrepancy between the decimal and binary measures increases as the numbers get larger: there is only a 2.4% difference between a decimal and a binary kilobyte, which isn't that big of a deal. However, this increases to around a 5% difference for megabytes, and around 7.5% for gigabytes, which is actually fairly significant. This is why with today's larger hard disks, more people are starting to notice the difference between the two measures. Hard disk capacities are always stated in decimal gigabytes, while most software uses binary. So, someone will buy a "30 GB hard disk", partition and format it, and then be told by Windows that the disk is "27.94 gigabytes" and wonder "where the other 2 gigabytes went". Well, the disk is 27.94 gigabytes--27.94 binary gigabytes. The 2 gigabytes didn't go anywhere.

Another thing to be careful of is converting between binary gigabytes and binary megabytes.

Wow,that's heavy, dude.

A kilometre (American spelling: kilometer, symbol km) is a unit of length in the metric system, equal to one thousand metres, the current SI base unit of length. It can be written in scientific notations as 1×103 m (engineering notation) or 1 E+3 m (exponential notation) — both meaning 1,000 × 1 m.

nanometre <<< micrometre <<< millimetre < centimetre < decimetre < metre < decametre < hectometre < kilometre <<< megametre

A corresponding unit of area is the square kilometre and a corresponding unit of volume is the cubic kilometre.

In English, the word "kilometre" is often pronounced with the stress on the second syllable (ki-LOM-etre) - following the stress pattern that applies to measuring devices (barometer and thermometer) rather than to other multiples of the metre (millimetre, decimetre) or other SI units (kilogram).

Slang terms for kilometre include "klick" (sometimes spelled "click" or "klik") and "kay" (or "k"). These non-standard terms can also refer to kilometres per hour, which itself is abbreviated as km/h, km h-1, km·h-1 or, informally, kph.

"Kilometrage" may be used in the same way as "mileage".

As to your Savant hypothesis that "God and the Universe are concepts that are beyond us all."
Well, gosh, most thinking homosapiens are interested in why they are here, what's it all about, what is the reason for our existance? Happenstance? Cosmic coitus? Bad luck? Arrogance? Every philospher throughout time, and a bunch of jerks at Tony's Bar all have postulated answers for those inquiries. The problems as I see it is that most men stop when "any" explication is offered to them, religious, scientific, or metaphysical. I believe we are here to question and to learn, that we are "in lesson" as the Buddhists and new-Agers contend. But that is another story, and it does not fit well into a comment about your wonderful sardonic inquiry and discovery of the "God Particle". I could bore you with those concepts about All That Is, the godhead, that each of us spiritually are connected to the cosmic body of some spiritual enitity, like sub-atomic cells it its body, a part of something; not just free-floating ameba, or thought.

Your in depth analysis is back on the mark. It could not be more sinsinct, more dynamic, more accurate. And thank you for the treatise, for it drenches my spiritual needs for this day quite amply.

A question and a comment:
Question:
Which combination is the "God-particle"??
Comment:
While you were writing this connected to the Internet, Margrit was trying to call you and Meredith to thank you directly for your appreciated hospitality to her while she was your house guest. She already thanked your answering machine, but she wanted to thank you directly. So, now you know.

Now an add-on -- if I don't see you Wed while I am ushering at Seattle's great Chamber Music Festival: I have changed my moving date to Friday, 10 August. That should give me adequate time to get EVERY thing unpacked and in its proper place before I fly back to Germany on 23 August. Between 10 and 23 August, I'll be continuing to overnight at my Shoreline apartment, but working days at your place unpacking. Hope this is all OK with you.

The "God" particle, the basic indivisible unit of existance, anomann, is the "screw-up"

The world is because it's a mess and it's a mess because it is.
