PDF | The Higgs boson has been described as the “God” particle that will explain everything about the universe according to the popular press. PDF | The Higgs mechanism – as part of the Standard Model of Elementary Particle Physics – is mostly considered to be a real physical process that brings. PDF | On Jan 1, , Walter James Christensen and others published Calculating God from the God Particle.
In addition to general relativity, we will also present some limited thermodynamical mathematics. This we do by relating spacetime consciousness and memory to graviton excitement and decay resulting in the production of a matter cocoon permeating our Milky Way Galaxy , to measurable galactic affects, such as constant rotation curves  , as well as accelerated spacetimes . Maxwell further imagined a valve placed between the two chambers that could be opened or closed at the discretion of an intelligent creature who stood watch over all the moving gas molecules.
Likewise, as slow gas molecule neared the valve, the creature opened the valve to let it pass into the chamber of slow gas molecules; otherwise the valve would remain shut sealing off both chambers from each other. In this way a build-up of faster molecules would favor one chamber, and slower molecules favor the other chamber. Though C. When such beings make measurements, they make the system behave in a manner distinctly different from the way a mechanical system behaves when left to itself.
What we show that it is a sort of a memory faculty, manifested by a system where measurements occur, that might cause a permanent decrease of entropy and thus a violation of the Second Law of Thermodynamics, were it not for the fact that the measurements themselves are necessarily accompanied by a production of entropy. The answer is a resounding yes.
What ensued over the next hundred and fifty years after Maxwell wrote his letter to Tait, was an impressive list of scientists and mathematicians who proposed their own unique rebuttal or support of the Second Law. These include such scientific luminaries as: W.

Higgs field[ edit ] According to the Standard Model, a field of the necessary kind the Higgs field exists throughout space and breaks certain symmetry laws of the electroweak interaction.
When the weak force bosons acquire mass, this affects their range, which becomes very small.
For many decades, scientists had no way to determine whether or not the Higgs field existed, because the technology needed for its detection did not exist at that time. If the Higgs field did exist, then it would be unlike any other known fundamental field, but it also was possible that these key ideas, or even the entire Standard Model, were somehow incorrect. Unlike other known fields such as the electromagnetic field , the Higgs field is scalar and has a non-zero constant value in vacuum.
The existence of the Higgs field became the last unverified part of the Standard Model of particle physics, and for several decades was considered "the central problem in particle physics". It also resolves several other long-standing puzzles, such as the reason for the extremely short range of the weak force. Although the Higgs field is non-zero everywhere and its effects are ubiquitous, proving its existence was far from easy.
In principle, it can be proved to exist by detecting its excitations , which manifest as Higgs particles the Higgs boson , but these are extremely difficult to produce and detect. The importance of this fundamental question led to a year search , and the construction of one of the world's most expensive and complex experimental facilities to date, CERN 's Large Hadron Collider ,  in an attempt to create Higgs bosons and other particles for observation and study.
This also means it is the first elementary scalar particle discovered in nature. More studies are needed to verify with higher precision that the discovered particle has all of the properties predicted, or whether, as described by some theories, multiple Higgs bosons exist. It was therefore several decades before the first evidence of the Higgs boson was found.
