An explanation of pop-up particles known as Quarks
The puzzle of why there is something rather than nothing – from which all the biggest questions of metaphysics spring such as ‘where did we come from?’ ‘why are we conscious?’ – has been largely solved by scientists studying the physics of the infinitesimally small – and applying them to the incomprehensibly large.
These Quantum physicists first theorised, then proved, that particles simply pop into existence, usually in pairs, from absolutely nowhere.
Indeed they have theorised further that the universe really does not like ‘nothing’ – and perhaps the state of nothingness is an impossible state.
These pop-up particles are known as Quarks and they make up wisps of existence known as Mesons and Baryons.
Ultimate free lunch: The universe came from absolutely nothing
The new findings seem to break the classical physics law of the Conservation of Energy – that energy can neither be created nor destroyed – showing that new energy can appear within a closed system from nowhere.
And scientists have theorised that the once this principle is proven the rest is just a matter of scale.
A spokesman for science explainer channel Strange Mysteries said: “According to quantum mechanics the idea of nothingness persisting for all time is unrealistic as there’s no such thing as empty space.“Even in a perfect vacuum particles and anti-particles flash in and out of existence, and they return to no-where when they’re done.
“Stephen Hawking found that space is unstable. Empty space, in time, eventually starts to froth and bubble.
“These bubbles of spacetime form particles out of nothing just like those weird particles, and we think a similar bubble may have formed out of nothing to create our entire universe.”
Nobel prize winner Frank Wilczek of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, who specialises is quantum chromodynamics, the theory that describes how quarks behave deep within atomic nuclei, has found that the universe simply doesn’t like a state of nothingness.
Something – existence – seems far preferable.
He said: “You can form a state that has no quarks and antiquarks in it, and it’s totally unstable.
Victor Stenger, a physicist at the University of Colorado in Boulder added: “Something is the more natural state than nothing.
“According to quantum theory, there is no state of ’emptiness’,”
Professor Wilczek added: “There is no barrier between nothing and a rich universe full of matter.
“Perhaps the big bang was just nothingness doing what comes naturally”
Many quantum physicists have even drawn the conclusion that nothingness itself cannot exist.
Mr Universe: Everything, including us, from a bubble in spacetime?
Quantum physics involves a trade off between time and energy - something that lasts a long time must have little energy and vice versa.
The universe is more than 13 billions years old which suggests very low energies.
The instant after the Big Bang, know as Inflation, was a period of massive energy and expansion but the negative energy of gravity precisely cancelled this out – leaving a zero sum.
The zero sum actually gets around the Conservation of Energy problem because if there is zero overall energy to conserve, the problem evaporates – and a universe that simply popped out of nothing becomes not just plausible, but probable.
Alan Guth, a cosmologist at MIT who came up with the inflation theory 30 years ago said: “I like to say that the universe is the ultimate free lunch
“Maybe a better way of saying it is that something IS nothing.”
Fox News reporter Doug McKelway was in attendance during yesterday’s deadly events in Charlottesville, VA, where he reported that the police were called off as soon as things started turning violent.
“But when the tear gas started to fly, thrown by protesters, the police themselves began to evacuate then. I asked the guy who was in charge, “Where you going?” He said, “We’re leaving. It’s too dangerous.”They had a chance to nip this thing in the bud and they chose not to.“People were throwing soda cans filled with cement…
Of note, "Unite the right" held a rally which waslegally organized with a permitfrom the city, as was their first amendment right to do so, and Antifa showed up with cement-filled cans and other weapons with plans to violently protest the event - creating a dangerous atmosphere which the police did nothing to control.
The ACLU confirmed that Charlottesville police were ordered to stand down, which allowed the KKK and Antifa to meet face to face with no interference.
Some have suggested that the violent atmosphere and lack of police presence was a factor in the decision and ability of 20 year old white supremacistJames Alex Fieldsto drive his 2010 Dodge Challenger into a crowd of counter-protesters,killing 32 year old paralegal Heather Heyerand injuring dozens of others.
GOVERNOR OF COMMONWEALTH: Terry McAuliffe (D) (McAuliffe's response that law enforcement's handling of the violence was successful because there were no bullets fired and "zero property damage") McAuliffe is white.
ATTORNEY GENERAL VIRGINIA: Mark Herring (D)Previously, he served in the Senate of Virginia since a 2006 special election. Herring is White.
MAYOR: Michael Signer (D) is the mayor of Charlottesville, Virginia and an author, advocate, political theorist, and attorney. He is a Virginia Democratic activist and former candidate for lieutenant governor. Signer is white.
VICE MAYOR - Wes Bellamy, (D) (Charlottesville Vice Mayor Wes Bellamy repeatedly calls Trump '45', refuses to call him president) Bellamy is black.
CITY MANAGER: Maurice Jones (D) first served February, 2008 to April, 2010 as Assistant City Manager. Charged with leading the City’s community relations efforts, Maurice served as the primary staff contact on the City’s Dialogue on Race initiative; worked closely with Police Chief Timothy Longo to establish the Citizens Advisory Panel; managed the City’s Quality of Service and Efficiency Study; and worked with neighborhood associations and residents on variety of community issues. Jones is black.
POLICE CHIEF: Chief Al S. Thomas Jr. (D) Currently chief of the Lexington Police Department, Charlottesville’s first black police chief.Thomas is black.
Now I ask a question: Who is responsible to maintain law and order in the City of Charlottesville, in The Commonwealth of Virginia? Obviously it is Trump's fault.
Charlottesville riots show media manage to make situation worse
CHARLOTTESVILLE, VIRGINIA | Washington Times
Eight years after it was proved — even more convincingly than the moon landing — that a black man can get elected president of the United States of America, we still have slow learners stuck in the past.
It’s the “Obliterate History Neanderthals” versus the “I’m White and I’m Proud Brass Knuckle Draggers.” Truly, dumb and dumber — and not always in that order.
The only people dumber than the Neanderthals and Brass Knuckle Draggers are the insufferably tedious referees known as the Stupid Media who shape the country as a barking mad carnival, whipping up hysteria for every armed showdown.
Now an accused Knuckle Dragger and confirmed cat owner, James Alex Fields, has entered the haunted American lexicon of having three names: Lee Harvey Oswald. James Earl Ray. Son of Sam — whatever.
James Alex Fields stands accused of ramming his beloved muscle car into a crowded street during a showdown between the two sides excessively hyped by the Stupid Media.
Now was this a planned attack aimed at maximizing the elimination of as many Neanderthals as possible? Or was it Brass Knuckle Dragger road rage sparked by somebody kicking or throwing something at his muscle car?
My experience with drivers of Dodge Chargers is that they are prone to road rage. And high rates of speed. Who knows, maybe it was a pre-conceived, carefully thought out attack aimed at maximum annihilation of Neanderthals. But the “I’m White and I’m Proud Brass Knuckle Draggers” aren’t known for being particularly sharp. But then again, neither are the “Obliterate History Neanderthals” and their self-styled “antifa” moniker.
The real question is why the Stupid Media gives these loudmouth malcontents so much free airtime.
The Neanderthals have worked so hard in President Obama’s “postracial” America to expand the meaning of “racism” so as to include so many stupid and innocuous things that it is hard to keep track of what exactly is “racist” anymore.
You’re a cop? Racist. A black cop? A racist racist. You’re white? Lord, help you.
After the mayhem Saturday, the Stupid Media descended upon the mother of James Alex Fields and cornered her in her garage for one of the most bizarre — though strangely illuminating — press conferences in Stupid Media history.
“I just knew he was going to a rally,” she explained. “I mean, I try to stay out of his political views.”
Stupid Media tells her it was a Brass Knuckle Dragger rally.
“I thought it had something to do with Trump,” she replied, hesitantly. “Trump’s not a white supremacist.”
Trying to be helpful, the mother of James Alex Fields then offers: “I just know there was — he did mention it was ‘Albright.’”
“Alt-right,” a member of the Stupid Media corrects her, though it is not clear that the Stupid Media was present when James Alex Fields told his mother about the “Albright rally” he was attending.
She confirms for the Stupid Media: “Albright.” Stupid Media strikes back again: “No, alt-right. It’s like alternative right.”
Again, not clear if Stupid Media was present when James Alex Fields discussed his plans to attend this Albright conference.
Who knew Madeleine Albright was a “white nationalist”?
Anyway, as the gaggle of Stupid Media buzzards poked their bald heads in her open garage, the mother of James Alex Fields was clearly confused by everything she was learning about her “white nationalist” son.
“He had an African-American friend, so — ” her voice trailed off, hoping the assembled Stupid Media would get the point.
Well, she stuck the landing with “African-American,” then immediately walked into an airplane propeller by excusing her son on the virtue that he had a black friend. Every enlightened person knows there is nothing more racist than notifying others that you have a black friend.
But what exactly is this so-called “alt-right” the Stupid Media keeps talking about? Best I can gather, it’s racists who are not totally racist. Or not as racist as “white nationalists.” Or, maybe, it’s racists who like black people. Or maybe it is just people who voted for Donald Trump. Who knew Mr. Obama’s “postracial” America would be so damned confusing?
In her defense, the mother of James Alex Fields did not appear exactly proud of her offspring’s behavior, even before Saturday’s madness.
“I don’t really get too involved,” she explained. “I moved him out to his own apartment.”
Good news here is that there is life after grown children living in your basement. Bad news is you may still be paying for them.
Desperate to fetch some good from the awkward situation with hungry buzzards staring into her garage, she offers: “I’m watching his cat.”
