Go to: The Hunting of the Higgs: what is it and why does it matter?

QUANTUM MELODY -- James Ph.Kotsybar

Below subatomic, the particles slip through Heisenberg’s uncertainty nets. They cannot even be called articles; they’re just mathematical epithets. Though we may say they have up or down spins (we may even find them charming or strange), l ike angels that dance on the heads of pins, it takes metaphysics to find their range. They have no shape we can define, except as bleary fields of energy. Until we measure them, there’s no place where they’re kept; their locus is totally vibratile. They pluck at space like an instrument string, at this scale. Quark! The hadron angels sing!

UNPUBLISHED FINDINGS -- James Ph. Kotsybar

They granulate the universe to pulp crashing particles only newly found. They figure their trajectories and gulp, “So much data upon which to expound!” Their energies unbound by quantum course, they separate the world we think we know. They rip particles into force by force. Unification’s where they say they’ll go. When, at last, they prove life is illusion, where do you think they’ll publish the result? They may just ascend beyond confusion and leave us in the lurch of the occult, for once that testimony’s imparted, expostulation just seems false-hearted.

FEARFUL SYMMETRY (from Songs Of Experiments) -- James Ph. Kotsybar

Beyond notice, out of sight in dimensions curled up tight, shall only weakened gravity suggest your supersymmetry?

Do you match, sine qua non, boson to a fermion? Will you ever edify how the forces unify?

In what quanta, small or large will we find your mass and charge? In what membranes do you roam? Which dimensions call you home?

In magnetic chambers narrow, will you tell us of time’s arrow? Have you broken, in the past? How long do your components last?

Quarks from gluons will divide when we make hadrons collide: Will this show us where you hide or leave us still unsatisfied?

Beyond notice, out of site in dimensions curled up tight, will only highest energy reveal your supersymmetry?

Go to: Faster than light. One step closer.

OPERATIC CONCERN -- James Ph. Kotsybar

Oh, little neutral one of tiny mass, anomalous traveller from the sun, you fly through matter that photons can’t pass: Could this explain the races that you’ve won?

Since Einstein, no one believed it could be that anything could go faster than light -- deemed simply an impossibility, for Relativity has to be right.

If true, the results are quite terrible, and give complacent physicists a scare. In terms of a modern day parable, you are the tortoise; the photon’s the hare.

Though steady, light (it seems) can’t keep up pace. Your oscillation is what wins the race.
