Uncertain, Possible, Certain… The path of Higgs…


Science Insider reports “Presented in Brussels, the updated plan builds on an original strategy formulated in 2006. Predictably, its first priority is full exploitation of the world’s biggest atom smasher, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at the European particle physics laboratory, CERN, near Geneva, Switzerland. The LHC started taking data in 2010 and last year coughed up the long-sought Higgs boson, the particle that’s key to physicists’ explanation of how other fundamental particle get their mass”. [1]


Up to now announcements concerning the “discovery” of the Higgs particle used words like “LHC possibly discovered Higgs particle”. (see all Higgs relaretd posts – here) Now we have let go of these dangerous words and we are starting to feel more “certain” about our fake discovery. You see, as long as people start to forget, telling lies becomes more easy. Give it a year or two, and we will have “discovered” WIMP as well…

Spiros Kakos is a thinker located in Greece. He has been Chief Editor of Harmonia Philosophica since its inception. In the past he has worked as a senior technical advisor for many years. In his free time he develops software solutions and contributes to the open source community. He has also worked as a phD researcher in the Advanced Materials sector related to the PCB industry. He likes reading and writting, not only philosophy but also in general. He believes that science and religion are two sides of the same coin and is profoundly interested in Religion and Science philosophy. His philosophical work is mainly concentrated on an effort to free thinking of "logic" and reconcile all philosophical opinions under the umbrella of the "One" that Parmenides - one of the first thinkers - visualized. The "Harmonia Philosophica" articles program is the tool that will accomplish that. Life's purpose is to be defeated by greater things. And the most important things in life are illogical. We must fight the dogmatic belief in "logic" if we are to stay humans... Credo quia absurdum!
