Ready? "warning heavy reading needed"
Ok lets begin..
The Higgs boson is a massive scalar elementary particle predicted to exist by the Standard Model in particle physics. At present there are no other
known fundamental scalar particles in nature.
Taken from en.wikipedia.org...
Let us look at one key part in this shall we?
At present there are no other known fundamental scalar particles in nature.
Wonder why?? Hmm lets see shall we
Quantum mechanics (QM) is a set of principles describing the physical reality at the atomic level of matter (molecules and atoms) and the subatomic
(electrons, protons, and even smaller particles). These descriptions include the simultaneous wave-like and particle-like behavior of both matter
and radiation ("wave–particle duality"). Quantum Mechanics is a mathematical description of reality, like any scientific model. Some of its
predictions and implications go against the "common sense" of how humans see a set of bodies (a system) behave. This isn't necessarily a failure of
QM - it's more of a reflection of how humans understand space and time on larger scales (e.g., centimetres, seconds) rather than much smaller.
Now Let me point out ONE very very KEY WORD "scale"
after all that you are thinking scale? Oh yep!
Lets look at one type of scale in relation to this..
A vernier scale is an additional scale which allows a distance or angle measurement to be read more precisely than directly reading a
uniformly-divided straight or circular measurement scale. It is a sliding secondary scale that is used to indicate where the measurement lies when it
is in between two of the marks on the main scale.
ok so what has this got to do with particals and me? or me and anything "godlike"
Observation is either an activity of a living being (such as a human), consisting of receiving knowledge of the outside world through the senses, or
the recording of data using scientific instruments. The term may also refer to any datum collected during this activity.
nice word heh? well it should be..
Certain systems, however, do exhibit quantum mechanical effects on a larger scale; superfluidity (the frictionless flow of a liquid at temperatures
near absolute zero) is one well-known example
scale! love this word.
Now lets compare a human on scale shall we to oh i dunno A STAR?
VY Canis Majoris (VY CMa) is a red Hypergiant star located in the constellation Canis Major. With a size of 2600 solar radii, it is the largest known
star and also one of the most luminous known. It is located about 1.5 kiloparsecs (4.6×1016 km) or about 4,900 light years away from Earth. Unlike
most stars, which occur in either binary or multiple star systems, VY CMa is a single star (i.e. does not have any stellar companions). It is
categorized as a semiregular variable and has an estimated period of 6,275,081 days, or just under 17,200 years.
Feel small? you should do
If you do not know how small you are have a look at this picture for refrence
Now why do i connect the dots i do? Because YOU are in fact a partical of EPIC ness on scale that is mind bending..
But yet we have ATOMS?? lets go tiny! or as tiny as we can and compare a human to the atom! sounds fun
The name atom comes from the Greek ἄτομος/átomos, α-τεμνω, which means uncuttable, or indivisible, something that cannot be divided
During the late 19th and early 20th centuries, physicists discovered subatomic components and structure inside the atom, thereby demonstrating that
the 'atom' was divisible. The principles of quantum mechanics were used to successfully model the atom
we are made from atoms correct? but yet we are "indivisible, something that cannot be divided further" well unless you count having kids but thats
for another topic ^^)
You see how scale is fitting in to this?
Atoms lack a well-defined outer boundary, so the dimensions are usually described in terms of the distances between two nuclei when the two atoms are
joined in a chemical bond.
Also akin to a solar system and gravity ? "oh the mind boggles"...
As of 2009 the quest for unifying the fundamental forces through quantum mechanics is still ongoing. Quantum electrodynamics (or "quantum
electromagnetism"), which is currently the most accurately tested physical theory, has been successfully merged with the weak nuclear force into
the electroweak force and work is currently being done to merge the electroweak and strong force into the electrostrong force. Current predictions
state that at around 1014 GeV the three aforementioned forces are fused into a single unified field, Beyond this "grand unification", it is
speculated that it may be possible to merge gravity with the other three gauge symmetries, expected to occur at roughly 1019 GeV. However - and while
special relativity is parsimoniously incorporated into quantum electrodynamics - the expanded general relativity, currently the best theory describing
the gravitation force, has not been fully incorporated into quantum theory.
What they are saying is bascialy all theroys are in a way correct based on scale.. stupid yes LOGICAL? veryyyy logical.. when one compares the size of
a human to star you seem pretty special more so because you compared to a atom is more or less the same lol
The point is YOU are the APEX of scale in our own reality YOU become the missing link in all mathmatics.
You MY friend ARE bosson!
Be happy knowing you make the universe work in a fundermental way and without you, it would not work.
Hoped you understand you are just like the atom in your very own way.
Just want to add all the infomation / quotes are from wiki "none edited"
