ATLAS discovers its first new particle

String theory isn’t just another quantum field theory, another particular finite list of elementary particles with some interactions. It’s an intellectually and literally multi-dimensional reservoir of wisdom that has taught us many things of completely new kinds that we couldn’t … Continue reading

"Lego Block" Galaxies in Early Universe

Witten: One thing I can tell you, though, is that most string theorist’s suspect that spacetime is a emergent Phenomena in the language of condensed matter physics. n this image of the Hubble Ultra Deep Field, several objects are identified … Continue reading

The Cosmic Landscape

I noticed a few blogs mentioning the landscape. Asymptotia(Clifford Johnson), The Reference Frame(Lubos Motl), and Not Even Wrong (Peter Woit’s) blog. The Cosmic Landscape:String Theory and the Illusion of Intelligent Design by Leonard Susskind After reading Susskind’s book in regards … Continue reading

Heralded from the 21st Century: String Theory

I know not how, may find their way to the minds of humanity in Some Dimensionality, and may stir up a race of rebels who shall refuse to be confined to limited Dimensionality.” from Flatland, by E. A. Abbott It … Continue reading

Solidification of Geometrical Presence

While I might infer the “attributes of Coxeter here,” it is with the understanding such a dimensional perspective which has it’s counterpart in the result of what manifests as matter creations. Yet we have taken our views down to the … Continue reading

Against Symmetry

The term “symmetry” derives from the Greek words sun (meaning ‘with’ or ‘together’) and metron (‘measure’), yielding summetria, and originally indicated a relation of commensurability (such is the meaning codified in Euclid’s Elements for example). It quickly acquired a further, … Continue reading

The Higg’s Boson and Memory?

While some like chocolate bars and the bubble nature of candy, some also like the molasses and ice cream? 🙂 If Plato Had thought “the new born” was not really such a “blank slate” then what did he mean exactly? … Continue reading

Historical Approach of the Sand Reckoner

I should pave the way for how the thoughts that are unfolding this morning. But nothing afflicted Marcellus so much as the death of Archimedes, who was then, as fate would have it, intent upon working out some problem by … Continue reading

What’s on the Condense Matter Theorist’s Mind?

The Theory of Everything Prof. Robert B. Laughlin The crystalline state is the simplest known example of a quantum , a stable state of matter whose generic low-energy properties are determined by a higher organizing principle and nothing else. Robert … Continue reading
