How and what fundamental particles and forces are "forged" are tantalizingly displayed here in less than 10 minutes.
Math as the language, geometry as the cosmos results in beautiful patterns you can see here
https://www.ted.com/talks/garrett_lisi_on_his_theory_of_everything


This is the kind of stuff called high risk-high reward. I first saw this concept presented in a Scientific American magazine almost 10 years ago. It looked promising. It predicts up to 8 different Higgs 'God particles' but 4 is a good start.

Rap that is just salacious word play with celestial mechanics. tsk tsk
play is good

It is true that I have played with suppositions about the cosmos for 50 years. With the more I have playfully learned from the serious measurements of dedicated scientists the more I can back up my claims.
For example; (roll eyes or not)

Uniting quantum gravity with relativity is a dead end.
To best unfold the New Physics it is far more important to unite Field Physics with Relativity in which quantum behavior is the fundamental vibrating music of the cosmos.

The new field force carrier is not just one Higgs boson, it is as many as 4-8 variants of the Higgs. These other variants are called technicolor versions that simply have their quarks in different configurations. (we do not yet know which variant we may have detected in the HADRON collider)



My serious explanations of the mysteries of Expansion*, Dark matter* and dark energy* are as follows:


In the begining when space time was born and all the universe's spinning fundamental particles and forces were forged and began their journey through time, the great mass of the expansion
phase of the early tiny universe was slowed to a crawl by the effect of mass on spacetime .
To us it would appear as if very little time passed and only seemed faster than light. Eventually the universe appears to expand at a phenomenal rate.

Measurements show that after 4 billion years the expansion appears to slow down. Gradually the slowing expansion stopped after 7 billion years and up until now an acceleration of the universe is in full sway. My theory is that black holes forge many of the variants of higg bosons, some of which expand space instead of only giving mass to matter.
These different kinds of higg bosons may number from 4 to eight different kinds and produce all the forces and forms of matter including dark matter and space time.
Just as the big bang produced different kinds of bosons, so do black holes which have effected the expansion of the universe. These exotic forms of technicolor bosons forged in black holes like the
forging of fundamental forces in the big bang, have now significantly increased more technicolor bosons and tipped the balance that are now causing the accelerated expansion of the universe.

Usually I only say that black holes are respondsible for the acceleration of our universe hoping someone might ask why, but no one ever has.

Who'da ever thought a dyslexic savant could come up with a more simple Occam Razor explanation of the mysteries of the cosmos?

Amos, this is the way my 'tendril' feels the Cosmos and all its attractions and repulsions.

Mom, I'm sorry I haven't been around lately, but I am trying very, very hard to cope with the weather. I mean, 77F during the day and 65F at night, for days and days on end. Maybe a little rain, but maybe not.

Anyway, I went to a Doc In A Box today for a cough that's pretty ugly. Just a cough, but I guess if I go to Hawai'i or Norway I get sick. I shan't say what I think of that.

Amos, stick it! You can do it! Stay the course! Tie yourself to the wheel if you must!

Sorry I haven't been around lately. I just haven't had squat to say for the last few days.

But today is different! I do have squat to say! So, here it is:






"SQUAT!"

Just went out to the parking lot to scrape off the parked car.
The falling snow covered the car as fast as I could scrape off
the snow that had fallen last night.
Visibility? Well, you CAN see across the parking lot. Just.
It will be after dark before long. Not going out again until after sunrise.

I saw a picture of sea=salt that claimed to be hundreds of year old, and it had a best-by date of next year on it, Go figger. I have slowly rebounded thus far but tomorrow--oh, tomorrow!--I re-enter the biochemical Maw of Medicament as predicamentary prey, or a subject of the predicate, as you whist.

I will struggle to play that night but the next day will be riddled with slugs of lassitude and spasms of the upper GI and great indolence of brain. This is called Going Through Hell to get to the Other Side, which is called Getting Better.

Then, the voodoo cannibals tie me up again and cut me open in order to Remove Important Parts. Assuming none of the foregoing kills me, I will then be declared a Cancer Survivor and will be sent home to nurse my resentments and crawl out of the hole I did not, myself , dig. This is the Modern Miracvle of American Health Care post Nixon, also known as Shit Creek Sans Paddle. But if it does not kill me, it will surely make me more calloused one way or the other.

I never had the talk. I was simply commanded that I was not allowed to say what the location of a particle is, or ever touch the thingy, nor could I deny it exists even if it didn't and that it is guided by a pilot wave in front of a partice that the particle then follows.

In our world the wave created by our boat is a wake that trails behind us in an opposite fashion to the quantum world.

In the quantum world, space itself is felt to be energetically vibrating. It all reminds me of one of those old fashioned electric football games with the meandering linemen because of the amplitude and frequency of the vibrating field.

I would cheat and guide/massage the bits from going out of bounds. Little did I know I was quantum computing in 1961.

You see, soon I shall go to the former Kingdom of Hawai'i. I'll hobnob with the dukes and princes and even maybe the hereditary monarch herself. Yes, and I'll do my best to uphold Mom's teachings about ettykett and poolightness and stuff. I'll even take my evening dress, not that it's any different from my day dress (neither of which is a dress or even a kilt).

I'll think of Amos, snowbound in Nawth Karolinah and Maggie snowbound in Texas and Bee-Dubya snowbound in Florida. And even gnu, basking in the 80F sunshine of New Brunswick's spring. Even Kereboxu, wherever she may be.

Me, I'll be tuning my surfing skills -- I learned to surf the last time I was there. I was very taken by it and before I left I had a great time and I hope to ride a ninety-footer this time!

I'm still working on that. There's wrist and elbow scar tissue to work through.

The knee is pretty uncomfortable when I kneel, so I've given it up. Apparently Liz II isn't going to knight me or anything anytime soon, and church wouldn't care, and I haven't used the kneeling position (or squatting or sitting positions) in shooting for a good many years now. No, wait -- I do shoot from a bench rest while sitting on a chair sometimes. I also try not to shoot from the prone position because of getting back up. Chairs and off-hand (standing position) shooting only these days....

For instance, the Maxwell equations for Thermodynamics:

    \begin{align} dU &= TdS - PdV &\Longrightarrow \left(\frac{\partial T}{\partial V}\right)_S = -\left(\frac{\partial P}{\partial S}\right)_V\\ dA &= -SdT - PdV &\Longrightarrow \left(\frac{\partial S}{\partial V}\right)_T =\left(\frac{\partial P}{\partial T}\right)_V\\ dH &= TdS +VdP &\Longrightarrow \left(\frac{\partial T}{\partial P}\right)_S = \left(\frac{\partial V}{\partial S}\right)_P\\ dG &= -SdT +VdP &\Longrightarrow -\left(\frac{\partial S}{\partial P}\right)_T = \left(\frac{\partial V}{\partial T}\right)_P\\ \end{align}

Sure, sure, things like Ę, Ɣ, ᾯ show up, but nobody uses them. But if you want to overdot at Tironia et or put a fada on Ogham, Mudcat can't handle it. Quelle domage, as we used to say back in West Central Illinois! Can we expect a change anytime soon?
