A Superset Universe?

How would you draw a Universe with all theories as being part of,  as a subset? Pictorial representations can be very useful in presenting information or assisting reasoning. Venn diagram is an example. Venn diagrams are used to represent classes … Continue reading

History of Supersymmetry to Today

Special Topic of Supersymmetry by Science Watch Since the 1980s, if not earlier, supersymmetry has reigned as the best available candidate for physics beyond the standard model. But experimental searches for supersymmetric particles have so far come up empty, only … Continue reading

It’s Neither World, not Nether

Netherworld is often used as a synonym for Underworld. Okay this may seem like a strange title, but believe me when I say how fascinating that such dynamics in meeting “each other: will allow something to “pop” right out of … Continue reading

Old News Can Still Be New Information

Getting a handle on Symmetries is an always work in progress for me, so as to keep abreast of the science and the theoretic involved. Why has Physics Today’s news coverage of string theory been so sparse? Given string theory’s … Continue reading

Who Has Forgotten the Child’s Question?

Physicists theorize that the omnipresent Higgs field slows some particles to below light speed, and thus imbues them with mass. Are we there yet? How many of you with children have not heard our own children speak with impatience of … Continue reading

"Bag Model," for the Economy

“In this edition, as a fifth appendix, a presentation of my views on the problem of space in general and the gradual modifications of our ideas on space resulting from the influence of the relativistic view-point. I wished to show … Continue reading
