Update: This has now been published in many more places: the original Nature article, Discover Magazine, SEED, Geo, the Eastern European Edition and India, Brazil, etc., and more books and papers. Since the image has proven to be popular (we still get print & publication requests, four lears later!), I decided to rework the existing image layers, modifying only the graphical representation—no structure—to see whether I could improve the information layering and remedy some of the faults I outline at the bottom of this page. Here's the new version: I was surprised at how much clearer it could be made. I think the new one has many of the structural faults I outlined below, but improves several things:
@ ledzep23 : "I was referring to the effects of particles combining after the Big Bang!(If any) That's one of the things they're trying to do, right?" Particles combine(d) in different ways at different times after the Big Bang. The LHC is working at an energy scale that is close to the Big Bang but not close enough for quantum gravity effects to be significant. "They're trying to find the Higgs Boson and something that has to do with Anti Matter, etc."

What is the "best" Hebrew Name of God? Some of the Jewish sages have said that it is revealed by reciting all 304,805 letters of the Torah in a series. That is, string together all 304,805 letters of the Torah - from the first letter of Bereshit (Bet) through the last letter of Devarim (Lamed) - and "read" this as a single "Word." Of course, we should also add the letters for the Prophets (neviim) and the Writings (ketuvim) to the Torah's 304,805 letters, not to mention the 138,020 words of the Greek New Testament.
Discrete time is the discontinuity of a function 's time domain that results from sampling a variable at a finite interval. For example, consider a newspaper that reports the price of crude oil once every day at 6:00AM. The newspaper is described as sampling the cost at a frequency of 24 hours, and each number that's published is called a sample. The price is not defined by the newspaper in between the times that the numbers were published. Suppose it is necessary to know the price of the oil at 12:00PM on one particular day in the past; one must base the estimate on any number of samples that were obtained on the days before and after the event.
Using a heated atomic force microscope tip, researchers have drawn nanoscale conductive patterns on insulating graphene oxide. This simple trick to control graphene oxide’s conductivity could pave the way for etching electronic circuits into the carbon material, an important advance toward high-speed, low-power, and potentially cheaper computer processors. Graphene, an atom-thick carbon sheet, is a promising replacement for silicon in electronic circuits, since it transports electrons much faster.
“Magick is the Science and Art of causing Change to occur in conformity with Will.” - Aleister Crowley “Magick is the art of causing changes in consciousness in conformity with the Will.” - Dion Fortune “…We will confine ourselves to an extension of a well-known definition by Aleister Crowley and state that, “Magic is the Science and Art of causing Change, on a material as well as a spiritual level, to occur in conformity with Will by altered states of consciousness.” - Frater U.: D.:, Secrets of Western Sex Magic “A magical act may be defined as causing reality to conform to will.” - Phil Hine, ‘Undoing Yourself with Chaos Magic’, Rebels and Devils “Magick is just the art of changing the focus of consciousness at will.” - Robert Anton Wilson, The Earth Will Shake “Sorcery: the systematic cultivation of enhanced consciousness or non-ordinary awareness & its deployment in the world of deeds & objects to bring about desired results.” - Hakim Bey, T.A.Z.
The universe can be a very strange place. While groundbreaking ideas such as quantum theory, relativity and even the Earth going around the Sun might be commonly accepted now, science still continues to show that the universe contains things you might find it difficult to believe, and even more difficult to get your head around. Theoretically, the lowest temperature that can be achieved is absolute zero, exactly ?273.15°C, where the motion of all particles stops completely.

A fundamental constant of the universe may not be so constant after all, according to a new study. Recent observations of distant galaxies suggest that the strength of the electromagnetic force ? the so-called fine-structure constant ? actually varies throughout the universe.
The Elegant Universe: Part 3 PBS Airdate: November 4, 2003 NARRATOR: Now, on NOVA, take a thrill ride into a world stranger than science fiction, where you play the game by breaking some rules, where a new view of the universe pushes you beyond the limits of your wildest imagination.
April 2, 2009 Move over, Newton: Scientifically ignorant computer derives natural laws from raw data If Isaac Newton had had access to a supercomputer, he'd have had it watch apples fall and let it figure out what that meant. But the computer would have needed to run an algorithm developed by Cornell researchers that can derive natural laws from observed data. The researchers have taught a computer to find regularities in the natural world that represent natural laws -- without any prior scientific knowledge on the part of the computer. They have tested their method, or algorithm, on simple mechanical systems and believe it could be applied to more complex systems ranging from biology to cosmology and be useful in analyzing the mountains of data generated by modern experiments that use electronic data collection.
