And God said Let There Be Higgs Already!

It looks like it comes down to the 4th of July [2012]: will Physics celebrate its personal Independence Day?

The God Particle will either be lost or found so it seems.
Like the rest of Geulah News: shlepping along we go!

Scientists at Cern will announce that the elusive Higgs boson 'God Particle' has been found at a press conference next week, it is believed. Five leading theoretical physicists have been invited to the event on Wednesday - sparking speculation that the particle has been discovered. Scientists at the Large Hadron Collider are expected to say they are 99.99 per cent certain it has been found - which is known as 'four sigma' level.

Peter Higgs, the Edinburgh University emeritus professor of physics that the particle is named after, is among those who have been called to the press conference in Switzerland. The management at Cern want the two teams of scientists to reach the 'five sigma' level of certainty with their results - so they are 99.99995 per cent sure - such is the significance of the results. Tom Kibble, 79, the emeritus professor of physics at Imperial College London, has also been invited but is unable to attend. He told the Sunday Times: 'My guess is that is must be a pretty positive result for them to be asking us out there.' The Higgs boson is regarded as the key to understanding the universe. Physicists say its job is to give the particles that make up atoms their mass. Without this mass, these particles would zip though the cosmos at the speed of light, unable to bind together to form the atoms that make up everything in the universe, from planets to people. The collider, housed in an 18-mile tunnel buried deep underground near the French-Swiss border, smashes beams of protons – sub-atomic particles – together at close to the speed of light, recreating the conditions that existed a fraction of a second after the Big Bang. If the physicists’ theory is correct, a few Higgs bosons should be created in every trillion collisions, before rapidly decaying.

This decay would leave behind a ‘footprint’ that would show up as a bump in their graphs. However, despite 1,600 trillion collisions being created in the tunnel - there have been fewer than 300 potential Higgs particles. Now it is thought that two separate teams of scientists, who run independent experiments in secret from each other, have both uncovered evidence of the particle. However, the two groups, CMS and ATLAS, are expected to stop short of confirming its existence.

An Abyss  Called Geulah
If the entire World is now waiting...[which they are]...One must assume that there is something [massive] and worth waiting for - World-Scale! Moshiach 5773?

Rabbi, what happened to Moshiach 5772? Now, it's 5773?

rabbi david katz said...

good question! here is the quick version: the process is 72, the gilui i believe is 73-erev 75 [always +/- ration of 2 in jewish time]
72 is chesed and 73 is chochmah, also termed the higher chesed in kabalah, compared to kohen and kohen gadol. the gra says it will come in the last possible time.i think the world is going through eternal changes in 72 and i think we will see the fruit as i said in 73-75. the zohar always says 72, 72.5 and 73. the dates in sforim also hint towards 73...a side note of sorts, 2012 is in 73. so as much as i would love to see definitive action in 72, and i feel it has happened as i have expolained in the bias moshiach comments [as arrived with mincha gedola], we are in inertia of galus for yet some time. i think 73 will be a very exciting year. then again, maybe 72 will be too :)

Rabbi, also what happened to Rav Kaddouri's Vilna Gaon 7-yr. counting from 6 Tammuz 5765 (Gush Katif)? 6-11 of Tammuz 5772 has come and gone and still no Moshiach? Is this just another "opportune time" that we've missed because of our behavior?

rabbi david katz said...

as per rav kadouri: 2 thinsg: everyone miscalculates the exact time, we learn that from daniel in the gemara! also, think of yosef and yaakov: there were first 7 good years, then bad years, and yaakov came and nullified the full extent of the 7 bad years. we are in it [now i believe] but looking for gilui according to the ramchal is not until much later. our job is to connect to it even with histaaras panim! for reference read ramchal maamer geulah, he has a very interesting seder of geulah. as i understand him, now is the time just before gilui, when people do teshuva in darkness. this stage of geulah is the end of the pekida and going into zechirah

Rav Kaduri said till 11th Av 5772 that when gush kativ Destroy

Rabbi Katz, what is pikida and zechira? Thank you.
