    You divided by zero, didn't you?

    But seriously, I'm intrigued by this but will wait until they re-revise everything...I don't want another faster-than-light-neutrino

    Again, topic would be back on track if people would stop getting it back off track by pointing out that it had been off track. Ended.

    I just wonder how something that confers mass to other particles has a mass of its own... and easily outweighs a proton. wtf, science.

    My favorite particle, by the way, is the neutrino. It's Catholic.
    Aaand sold.


    Be it through hallowed grounds or lands of sorrow
    The Forger's wake is bereft and fallow

    Is the residuum worth the cost of destruction and maiming;
    Or is the shaping a culling and exercise in taming?

    The road's goal is the Origin of Being
    But be wary through what thickets it winds.

    A particle that embodies and "expresses" the concept of mass? What if there is a separate particle for every physical property? What ARE particles anyway? Which really means, where's the limit of what they can do? It seems that on the "particular" level of scale a lot of "abstract" concepts like that begin to be expressed physically since Newtonian rules of physics don't apply anymore.

    But of course that's a "philosophical" rather than scientific viewpoint. Even tho' the gap between the two seems more and more narrow the more advanced physics are being discussed.

    We need newer, more advanced drugs to advance physics any further.

    Our main problem right now is that we can't understand more than 4D. The movement of electrons and other subatomic particles is just impossible according to our common ideas of dimensions. So, I agree on the use of drugs for reasearch, specially on those crazy scientists.

    We can understand more than 4D, we just can't do much with the knowledge in a practical sense. We don't even have control over the 4th dimension (time) yet - we can only travel 1 way. Using the next 6 dimensions for anything tangible is completely out of our grasp right now.
