The Higgs field according to the standard model
Along with the technological advances and theoretical breakthroughs the hopes are high that we can finally penetrate into the hidden nature of the universe. The discovery and validation of the existence of the Higgs field fulfills an important role in our endeavor to understand the universe since without the Higgs field the universe would have no atoms, molecules, chemical reactions, or material objects.
The Higgs…a bag of bricks
Today, scientist have all the math at hand to calculate very precisely the age of our universe (13.798 billion years) within an error smaller than 0.21%. They can even reconstruct in detail, trough computer simulations, the unfoldment of our universe starting from a singularity that according to the best estimates, and meticulous considerations, has no size at all, yet, contained from within all the past and future energy of our universe.
If not Higgs than what’s kicking? – Understanding Inertia
It’s not in the intend of this article to give you a general overview regarding the history of inertia nor to outline you all the problems encircling the concept of mass; however, we do intend to outline you in brief what observational facts and commonsense related reasoning can learn us about the true mechanism behind inertia.
What is love? Don't ask science
Love plays such an important role in our life that we almost have to admit that there lays somehow a deeper underlying principle encoded within it. But what precisely is love? Here we have entered difficult grounds, since “love” means different things to different people. Although we all know what feelings “love” and “falling in love” can bring with it, feelings are personal, hence, expressing love in such terms makes it hard to define.
What is time? – Making sense of it!
For Ages people have wondered about the nature of ‘time’. Let us therefore have a brief look to what modern science has to say on this subject; after all, science claims to be the sole legitimate truth-alignments methodology that enables us to liberate us from the vicious claws of Nature by investigating, understanding and formulating Her laws in precise manner, so that She might not only be tamed, but also is forced to reveal our essence.
