Rap News On Higgs-Boson Unbound

Juice Rap News: Episode 14 – Waiting for the God Particle. This civilisation’s grand quest for ultimate meaning has taken a giant leap towards its epic conclusion.

In the latest prequel to humanity’s journey to inner-space, scientists at the CERN laboratory announce that they have unlocked one of the key strands in the origin of Life, The Universe and Everything: 42 years on from its coining, the Higgs Boson particle has possibly been detected at the Large Hadron Collider. So what does it all mean? How does it feel to meet our Massters? Is this the font of all wisdom? Does it anti-matter that Scientists make use of ‘ComicSans’, the font of all evil? Is anyone conCERNed about the MASS amount of Higgslarious Pun-upmanship Colliding in the twittersphere? Join Robert Foster as he takes a journalistic journey into this particular world, and meets a colourful character, Professor Scott Ridley, a scientist from CERN laboratories. Get your Boson!

  1. that was too stupid I couldn’t finish…

    •  This certainly was a strange one. They didn’t really explain the discovery, so much as comment philosophically on it. I couldn’t really tell, but it seemed like they took a two-sided jab at religious associations in science as well, both condemning and promoting it.

      The ending was very telling. “turtles all the way down” is a reference to a story I heard Robert Anton Wilson write about, how a woman was questioned about her believe in the composition of the universe on the back of a turtle, and what the turtle was standing on.

      I forget the point of the story, but I believe the main character’s comment at the very end might explain it better, that the answers we receive depend entirely on the questions we ask. Everything depends on our perspective, which form our internal models of the universe and our thoughts and questions.

      Not our ultimate purpose, but at least our next goal, would seem to be to learn to change our minds out of a single fixed perspective that no one else can truly share understanding of without being increasingly similar to begin with. (What a waste to use the quantum computer in our skulls for an infinitely repeating loop of just one out of infinite things.)

    I appreciate the commentary on some of the magical language given the discovery. Science is not Religion no matter how hard you try.
