The God Particle (Higgs boson) may be the greatest discovery in history and only recently made in Geneva Switzerland by scientists using the Large Hadron Collider, the most expensive scientific apparatus ever conceived by the human mind. This newly discovered particle or field is more important, more profound than the discovery of the Atom because the God Particle is the force that defines all the atoms, all the elements contained in all the stars, all the planets, and even all the stuff that we are made of as well as everything else in the entire universe and it does this without leaving any evidence behind – not a trace, until now. Many readers will consider this to be the single most important book they have read in their lives because it simply and elegantly explains the readers entire life experience in terms of how it may fit into the over-all scheme of things. The author knows that this may seem at the onset to be the boldest of claims, but this knowledge when fully appreciated can and will provide the human race or the individual with everything they ever dreamed of. The technology provided here could be the precursor of a new type of religion. You've heard about the Laws of Probability. The discovery of the God Particle and this book's deeper look into the related technology unleashes the Laws of Possibility working in and around us all the time. Can you afford not knowing about this? God Particle Physics for Dummies is a basic introduction to God Particle Physics, the newest branch of Science and the most fundamental knowledge today since it is the newest supporting framework of all physics, chemistry, biology and even Evolution. God Particle Physics For Dummies is a lay person's easy-to-understand explanation of what the God Particle is all about, how it determines all our major life events as well as how to change the course of one's destiny and even how to put this energy to work for you. Even though the book points to a path that leads back to "God" or the originating source of these magnificent forces all around us, this is not a spiritual book, because all of the Science presented here is now known and proven, not mere speculation, wish fulfillment and guesswork like other books of this nature, however, the reason this particle is named for God, or The Source of all things is clearly shown. In the final chapters, the author makes a prediction that could eventually prove his theory. When one or more individuals absorbs this radically new and revolutionary technology, this may become the start of a Tsunami wave of a higher consciousness that will overwhelm our planet. The author hopes that his prediction will be born out sometime within his own lifetime. But whenever it is born out, the greatest paradigm shift in human evolution will begin. Our understanding of our role in the universe will accelerate and our ability to manage our future evolution on a steady course headed for final peace, prosperity, equality and justice shared amongst all Mankind may finally be ours. The author calls this "Plugging IN' - Plugging In to the greatest energy in the universe. The rewards one can receive for "Plugging-In" to this force are infinite in scope, the benefits to society unimaginable. The technology introduced in God Particle Physics for Dummies will allow anyone, anywhere, at any time to "Plug-In" to the force that begat all other forces.

The hunt for the Higgs particle has involved the biggest, most expensive experiment ever. So exactly what is this particle? Why does it matter so much? What does it tell us about the Universe? Did the discovery announced on 4 July 2012 finish the search? And was finding it really worth all the effort? The short answer is yes. The Higgs field is proposed as the way in which particles gain mass - a fundamental property of matter. It's the strongest indicator yet that the Standard Model of physics really does reflect the basic building blocks of our Universe. Little wonder the hunt and discovery of this new particle produced such intense media interest. Here, Jim Baggott explains the science behind the discovery, looking at how the concept of a Higgs field was invented, how the vast experiment was carried out, and its implications on our understanding of all mass in the Universe.

The Higgs Boson: Searching for the God Particle by the Editors of Scientific American Updated 2017 Edition! For the fifth anniversary of one of the biggest discoveries in physics, we’ve updated this eBook to include our continuing analysis of the discovery, of the questions it answers and those it raises. As the old adage goes, where there’s smoke, there’s fire. Where there is effect, there must be cause. The planet Neptune was found in 1846 because the mathematics of Newton's laws, when applied to the orbit of Uranus, said some massive body had to be there. Astronomers eventually found it, using the best telescopes available to peer into the sky. This same logic is applied to the search for the Higgs boson. One consequence of the prevailing theory of physics, called the Standard Model, is that there has to be some field that gives particles their particular masses. With that there has to be a corresponding particle, made by creating waves in the field, and this is the Higgs boson, the so-called God particle. This eBook chronicles the search – and demonstrates the power of a good theory. Based on the Standard Model, physicists believed something had to be there, but it wasn't until the Large Hadron Collider was built that anyone could see evidence of the Higgs – and finally in July 2012, they did. A Higgs-like particle was found near the energies scientists expected to find it. Now, armed with better evidence and better questions, the scientific process continues. This eBook gathers the best reporting and analysis from Scientific American to explain that process – the theories, the search, the ongoing questions. In essence, everything you need to know to separate Higgs from hype.

Two leading physicists discuss the importance of the Higgs Boson, the future of particle physics, and the mysteries of the universe yet to be unraveled. On July 4, 2012, the long-sought Higgs Boson--aka "the God Particle"--was discovered at the world's largest particle accelerator, the LHC, in Geneva, Switzerland. On March 14, 2013, physicists at CERN confirmed it. This elusive subatomic particle forms a field that permeates the entire universe, creating the masses of the elementary particles that are the basic building blocks of everything in the known world--from viruses to elephants, from atoms to quasars. Starting where Nobel Laureate Leon Lederman's bestseller The God Particle left off, this incisive new book explains what's next. Lederman and Hill discuss key questions that will occupy physicists for years to come: * Why were scientists convinced that something like the "God Particle" had to exist? * What new particles, forces, and laws of physics lie beyond the "God Particle"? * What powerful new accelerators are now needed for the US to recapture a leadership role in science and to reach "beyond the God Particle," such as Fermilab's planned Project-X and the Muon Collider? Using thoughtful, witty, everyday language, the authors show how all of these intriguing questions are leading scientists ever deeper into the fabric of nature. Readers of The God Particle will not want to miss this important sequel.

The book presents the conclusions of a psychologist seeking to make sense of contemporary particle physics as described in a number of popular science texts and media articles, written by physicists, seeking to explain the workings of the sub-atomic world. The accounts, it is argued, are a) mutually exclusive and contradictory, and b) metaphysical or magical in essence. Themes of the book include: a discussion of the way we allow physicists to invent things that have no perceivable qualities, on the grounds that they 'must' be there because otherwise their preconceptions are wrong or their sums don't work; that, from a psychological perspective, contemporary theory in particle physics has the same properties as any other act of faith, and the same limitations as belief in God; and that physics has now reached a point at which increasingly physicists research their own psychological constructions rather than anything which is unambiguously 'there' or real. It encourages people to ask basic questions of the type we often use to question the existence of God; such as 'Where is he/it?', 'Show me?', 'Do it then', 'When did it happen?', 'How do you know it exists?', and so on, and suggests that people take a leaf out of Dawkins' text, The God Delusion, but apply it to high-end physics as much as to religious dogma: turning water into wine is a mere conjuring trick compared to producing an entire universe out of nothing.
