Gods and Goddesses [Gods and Aliens] When you study the mythologies of ancient civilizations, you realize they are all designed by the same geometric blueprint that follows into humanity's current timeline. In the physical we find duality on all levels, especially in the pantheons of creational forces linked to one another. We further find the pattern of creation and destruction ... repeating in the cycles of time ... embracing the human experience. Designing the gods and goddesses falls into the same categories of duality - good and bad - light and dark - forever seeking balance and the return to full consciousness. The study of Ancient Alien Theory allows one to understand that creator gods more than likely were aliens who created the race presently called humans, in its various forms, by biogenetic experimentation and manipulation. Always we find Gods who came from the sky (higher frequency) and those that came from the sea of creation (collective unconsciousness).

Boson de Higgs, supersymétrie, théorie des cordes au LHC pour 2010 ? Peter Higgs contemplant le détecteur CMS au LHC. Crédit : Maximilien Brice-Cern Boson de Higgs, supersymétrie, théorie des cordes au LHC pour 2010 ? - 7 Photos C’est la troisième fois que je me retrouve au Cern en moins de deux ans. Le début de décembre 2009 fut aussi un grand moment en raison de la présence au Cern de plusieurs des architectes du modèle standard des particules élémentaires. Le 30 mars 2010 promettait lui aussi d’être un jour à marquer d’une pierre blanche. Peut-être d’ailleurs ne se limitera-t-il pas à cela. Etrange sensation que de se retrouver poussières d’étoiles et au bout du processus évolutif d'une biosphère, prêt à se pencher sur les forces et les énergies à l’œuvre au début du monde, avant que n’existent ni galaxies, ni étoiles et pas même des atomes. Nous somme plusieurs à nous trouver sur place vers 6 heures du matin. Jessica Leveque devant une photo du détecteur Atlas à l'intérieur du batiment abritant sa salle de contrôle.

Quantum Computers Animated Is Earth Surrounded by Dark Matter? Dark mater: The stuff that possesses mass, yet refuses to interact with radiation, so we can't 'see' it. Its nature has eluded scientists for decades, but there could be a reservoir of the stuff sitting right on our doorstep — if the weird measurements made by Global Positioning System (GPS) satellites are proven to be caused by a halo of the so-called non-baryonic matter around our planet. PHOTOS: Hubble’s Latest Mind Blowing Cosmic Pictures During a presentation at the American Geophysical Union (AGU) conference in San Francisco in December, GPS expert Ben Harris (of the University of Texas at Arlington) described some tricky measurements of the Earth’s mass using the armada of GPS satellites that are in orbit around our planet. He noticed a mass discrepancy when compared with “official” mass measurements as quoted by the International Astronomical Union (IAU). “The nice thing about GPS satellites is that we know their orbits really, really well,” said Harris. What does this mean?

Love American Skin | Photography Last week German photographer and filmmaker Diana Scheunemann unveiled her probing debut film, Love American Skin, a road trip across America that documented the many contrasting characters and viewpoints that make up one of the biggest nation’s in the world. Compelling watching, the film throws up opinions that may ruffle a few feathers but adds to our understanding of the vastness of the country, and the differences that one encounters from state to state. We catch up with Diana to talk through her experiences of making the film. Me and my partner had been living in NYC for a few years. You hear all these partisan views on the TV but we wanted to see for ourselves what this country we now live in is like, and form an opinion based on our own experience instead of from Hollywood movies and charged news commentators. We found nearly all of the Americans we met to be really open. There are some states where you can be shot just for stepping on someone’s property. That people are people.

Le modèle standard Les théories et découvertes de milliers de physiciens au cours du siècle dernier ont permis une compréhension remarquable de la structure fondamentale de la matière. L’Univers est fait de douze constituants de base appelés particules fondamentales et gouverné par quatre forces fondamentales C’est le Modèle standard de la physique des particules qui nous aide le mieux à comprendre la façon dont ces douze particules et dont trois des quatre forces de la nature sont reliées entre elles. Élaboré au début des années 1970, il a permis d’expliquer les résultats d’un grand nombre d’expériences et à prédire avec exactitude une grande variété de phénomènes. Avec le temps, et bien des expériences plus tard, le Modèle standard s’est imposé comme une théorie ayant de solides fondements expérimentaux. Les particules de matière Tout ce qui nous entoure est constitué de particules de matière divisées en deux familles : les quarks et les leptons. Forces et particules porteuses Le boson de Higgs

What Is the Higgs? - Interactive Graphic Imagine never having seen a snowflake. Now prove one exists by probing the slush and mist of melting snow. You can’t see a Higgs boson, and no sensor can pick one out from the Higgs field that it forms. For 50 years, physicists have been building larger and more powerful accelerators to vaporize particles and sift through the debris. In the tunnels at CERN, protons are sped along a track to within a breath of the speed of light, then smashed together in a violent explosion. The protons annihilate each other, releasing a burst of energy. But Einstein tells us that mass is energy, and physics tells us that energy can’t be destroyed. An array of new particles pours from the fireball, energy spun back into tiny specks of mass. A machine surrounds and tracks the debris, bending charged particles as they plow through layers of sensors. Repeat this a million times, then tens of millions, before a second has passed. And keep going because you’re looking for something very rare. Once every few billion impacts,

What It’s Like to Live in a Universe of Ten Dimensions by Maria Popova What songwriting has to do with string theory. What would happen if you crossed the physics of time with the science of something and nothing? You might get closer to understanding the multiverse. In Imagining the Tenth Dimension: A New Way of Thinking About Time and Space, Rob Bryanton — a self-described “non-scientist with an inquisitive mind,” whose dayjob as a sound designer involves composing music for TV series and films — proposes a theory of the universe based on ten dimensions, a bold and progressive lens on string theory based on the idea that countless tiny “superstrings” are vibrating in a tenth dimension. For a taste, here is a mind-bending explanation of ten dimensions might mean: The project began as a set of 26 songs, exploring the intersection of science and philosophy. Before launching into the additional dimensions, Bryanton also breaks down the familiar three: HT It’s Okay To Be Smart Donating = Loving Brain Pickings has a free weekly newsletter.

Un Certain Regard Un Certain Regard (French pronunciation: ​[œ̃ sɛʁtɛ̃ ʁəɡaʁ]; a certain regard) is a section of the Cannes Film Festival's official selection. It is run at the salle Debussy, parallel to the competition for the Palme d'Or. This section was introduced in 1978 by Gilles Jacob. Each year, it presents a score of films with various types of visions and styles; "original and different" works which seek international recognition. §Main Winners[edit] In 1998, the Prize Un Certain Regard (French: prix un certain regard) was introduced to the section to recognize young talent and to encourage innovative and daring works by presenting one of the films with a grant to aid its distribution in France.[1] Since 2005, the prize consists of €30,000 financed by the Groupama GAN Foundation.[2] * Denotes first win for a country §Complete List of Winners[edit] §References[edit]

Where Was The Big Bang? Alice in Quantumland: A Charming Illustrated Allegory of Quantum Mechanics by a CERN Physicist by Maria Popova Down the rabbit hole of antimatter, or how to believe six impossible things about gender stereotypes before breakfast. As a lover of science and of all things Alice in Wonderland, imagine my delight at discovering Alice in Quantumland: An Allegory of Quantum Physics (public library) — an imaginative and unusual 1995 quantum primer by particle physicist Robert Gilmore, who has under his belt experience at Stanford and CERN. Besides the clever concept, two things make the book especially remarkable: It flies in the face of gender stereotypes with a female protagonist who sets out to make sense of some of the most intense science of all time, and it features Gilmore’s own magnificent illustrations for a perfect intersection of art and science, true to recent research indicating that history’s most successful scientists also dabbled in the arts. Gilmore writes in the preface: In the first half of the twentieth century, our understanding in the Universe was turned upside down.
