'No,no, your not thinking; you're just being logical.' - Niels Bohr
Isn't it weird how events seem to conspire in a dance of synchronicity in the space-time continuum? Ever since R tutored me in Physics at Uni I've been fascinated with Quantum Mechanics, Superstring theory and Chaos theory. So there I was, driving the twins to school, wishing my car was capable of WARP speed because as usual, we were running late. It was the fourth of July, the day The Adventures of Alice in Wonderland were first published in 1865 and coincidentally they were playing White Rabbit from the movie Sucker Punch on the radio. The news came on with the astonishing announcement that CERN had confirmed the existence of the Higgs-Boson particle!

This brings me to Lynn McTaggart's brilliant book 'The Field', which discusses 'Zero Point Field' research, the state in which zero-point energy exists (even at a zero point matter amazingly still produces energy).This makes everything 'one heaving sea of energy- one vast quantum field'. This of course would mean that everything is connected to everything else like an invisible web - and think the Butterfly Effect, would therefore also mean we effect everything else because we touch or communicate with everything else on a subatomic level. This doesn't mean that we are automatically bestowed with omniscience but it does mean we can be omniaware.
What I sometimes visualize when I think about the Higgs Field and Zero Point Energy now we know the Higgs-boson actually exists, is that I'm standing looking at a tree and me, the tree and everything around us is one giant sea of honey. If I lean toward or away from the tree the honey moves in ripples and the tree feels the effect of my movement in some infinitesimal way - which is actually what is really happening only without the honey -replace the honey by a sea of energy and you'll have some idea of how important this discovery is in reality. That we touch and connect with everything is no longer some hippy-shit concept and that sea of energy is an as yet untapped endless supply of free energy - no more fossil fuels!
So the point of all this? If we can merge our knowledge of the Higgs-boson with Zero Point Field energy I'll see you on Vulcan!
