In one of my earlier posts, I mentioned the idea that the Higgs boson discoveries are very close to the heart of the question about the manifestation of God, or, the emanation of the transcendent principle, the reality, into what we call the material universe.
This, it turns out, is of considerable concern to physicists because, you see, from their point of view, particles shouldn't have mass at all. It simply isn't necessary, or even, mind you, entirely plausible. They ought to just consist of energy alone; the fact that they don't is a matter of some consternation.
Ah, those scientific rascals! Whatever will they be up to next?
A bit more on the interview tomorrow.
