Krona & Higgs Particle Fever

If you have not seen the new documentary PARTICLE FEVER, do so.  It is a film which documents the building and launch of the Hadron Particle Collider in Switzerland. If you are familiar with DC Comic HIstory and the Oan Krona, you will understand that the building of this machine was forewarned in Green Lantern Comics #40, dated October 1965.  In that issue John Broome, Gil Kane and no doubt Julie Schwartz, set down the ground-rules for the next 40 years of theoretical physics.  Doubtful? How else can you explain the following: 

The Hadron exists for the purpose of duplicating a sub-atomic particle, (Higgs-boson), which came into existence a billionth of a second after the Big Bang.  There seems to be little argument among Physicist that the universe originated in a Big Bang.  Hence the Hadron exists to discover the origin of the universe.  Of course that was Krona's obsession as explained in G.L. #40. 

The Higgs-boson particle was postulated by Noble Prize Winner Peter Higgs about 40 years ago.  Kinda makes you wonder what the young physicist was reading in his spare time.

In a sense this may serve as an example of life imitating art.  But it gets better.  As we watch Particle Fever we learn that once the Hadron succeeded in capturing a Higgs-  the next step is to determine a "weight" (value).  If the value is around 110 the odds are extremely good that the theory of Super Symmetry is correct.  Super Symmetry is the theory that only one universe exists.  However, if the value is around 145 the odds are all in favor of a Multiverse. This means ours is just one of....Oh Hell! if you read comic books you know damn well what the Multiverse is! 

As the documentary comes to an end, and for reasons I will not disclose, we learn the Hadron mission is not yet complete.  It is currently being converted into a Super-Hadron (what else?) and in 2015 or 2016 it will be ready to release the particle collusion that could end the debate, and change the course of physics forever. In other words hang on to your collection this is going to get good!!

Good Day,

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:( for the full details.

Have a nice day

Thanks God bless.
