I'm going to elaborate on a previous highdea of mine, here it is:

"Let's say matter can be represented in binary code, protons being 1's, neutrons being 0's and electron's being -1's... Okay, it'll be trinary code, whatever. Anywho, imagine we're all processing this information like computers. Matter has been shown to be mostly vacuous nothing and only seems to take shape when observed, according to quantum experiments. I don't know where I'm going with this, but life seems very Matrix-like, huh?"

So basically, I'm saying matter is made up of charges and there's really no reason for it to have weight and sometimes solidity. I'm also saying (as a metaphor) that we are the computers that interpret whatever is encoded in the makeup of everything and turn it into THINGS (like computers). You guys with me so far? Good.

Well, let's get into what the Higgs boson actually is. It's a variable that has yet to be found. Physicist Peter Higgs took a stab at the question "why does matter have mass?". What he came up with (as a theory), is that there is this invisible field that runs through everyone and everything and in this field resides the Higgs Boson, a particle the latches onto matter and gives it mass. A lot of Physicists were on board with this theory and even dedicated most of the experiments a CERN to the search for the Higgs.

I don't think they'll ever find the Higgs.... I don't think the variable is some elusive particle....
so here's my theory on the Higgs in a nutshell in case you couldn't quite grasp it previously...

Matter is encoded. We interpret it like computers. Until it is interpreted, it is an ocean of possibilities. Our perception gives things mass.

Isn't that neato?!?! (i like parenthesis)

I doubt the Higgs boson exist as we imagine it, like a actual physical particle. I think some scientist think too narrow minded and forget about the abstractness of nature ya know. Either the higgs dissipates faster than any instrument can observe or it simply doesn't exist as we imagine and there's fundamental flaws with the theory of physics. It's pretty trippy.

something else to think about: sensations really only occur in our brains...

Mon, 09/24/2012 - 10:42pm

The matrix is based exactly off of what life is. Your senses are what help you decode this information into what it is.

If we had other sense's we could in theory see different part's of light beyond the spectrum we already can, or talk telepathically, or sense magnetic field's like bird's and have no more need for compasses or gps, and our world and reality would change into something completely different.

Our body's are the machine that gather's information, our body's send it to the brain, then our brain interpret's it for our spirit.

Ah matter only takes form when observed.....this is just like that question "if a tree falls in the woods and nothing is around to here it, does it make a noise." I love that people think like this but at the same time if we are to live in the age of science don't you think we should be responsible about it? (i.e. cures before theories)

Mon, 06/20/2011 - 1:22am

I don't quite follow you, sir. Are you saying people shouldn't theorize and wonder and share their thoughts? Because that's what a lot of science (and highdeas) are. Cures before theories??

so the history of the universe before sentient beings showed up in it, that was all just something we'd made up?

Mon, 06/20/2011 - 2:12pm

I don't mean to put it that way. I just think that maybe we spend too much time on theories. Maybe some of the best minds have been wasted due to disease....I don't know it's just a theory haha. I know that Im on and wasting a lot of time myself so I don't have much room to talk.

Mon, 06/20/2011 - 4:24pm

That didn't make much sense sorry I had to leave. I love the fact that people always look forward. Some people are so eager to leearn and I love it. At the same time should we be pondering the afterlife or making theories on theology or, should we be more concerned with helping those who don't have the chance to live as we do? Some people don't have the luxury of thinking freely and knowing that nothing can hinder their thoughts. I live in a pretty "redneck" area and deep thinking here is when someone makes some revelation of the bible..... Im not trying to be a dick I just like to throw my thoughts in. thanks

the most compassionate thing you can do for someone is to improve their quality of life, and if it wasn't for scientific research, we'd still be shivering in caves, hungry most of the time, scared, wouldn't live much longer than 30 years .. we have problems in our world now, but on the whole, our world's a massive improvement on how it used to be

but you must admit, even without our perception of reality, life would go on
set a video camera up and life will go on just as it was when someone was looking
right now, we can use our intelligence to tell us that life is probably happening on another planet somewhere in the universe
what that life is doing right now is so far beyond our abilities to grasp that it's astounding
but other life still exists whether or not we perceive it
life is not just our imagination, life is a grand thing that our imagination gets glimpses of
we are just a speck in the universe
and we are able to comprehend the universe on a grand scale
that is truly amazing

all matter exists but it's up to us to perceive it and create meaning of its properties. The atoms and molecules connect with an energy and with their DNA make up different matter.

it might turn out that matter really is binary.. the standard model of particle physics is the messiest theory in all of science, and just as they were able to simplify the periodic table of elements, it might turn out that the standard model can also be simplified.. and it probably can, the reason why so much of the matter in the universe is baryonic (i.e. based on protons and neutrons) is because those are the states that it's most natural for quarks to be in, the up and down flavours .. there's a reason for this, someone might know or maybe nobody knows yet, but i certainly don't anyway.. but yea, since the known particles can be arranged according to the pattern than they're definitely following, it'll probably turn out that there's a simpler thing that's responsible for all the different ways that matter can be matter .. so our world might be a.. simulation, coded thing that we think we're living in, coded in binary.. .. so are our bodies, by the way, DNA is binary

interesting thought, though if all life on earth went extinct... the universe would go on without us, as would the many potentially existant aliens out there. consciousness isn't required for things to exist, things existed and then consciousness arose out of evolution. quantum experiments tell us that an electron may be at any number of locations until observed by an outside eye or "detector". however, electrons aren't what give things mass, so such tests don't relate to the stability of matter as much as the odd nature of electrons.

David Chalmers theorizes that consciousness is actually a universal constant, and doesn't necessarily rise out of evolution but is expressed in tandem with it, at varying levels, so more complex structures like our brains have pretty full consciousness, compared to a lizard, which has a less developed brain but probably some consciousness still.

i dont like to rule anything out, but i think only forms of life that have a brain have what we understand as consciousness (or at least, visual awareness). life without brains (plants) certainly aren't very conscious, if at all, because they have no nerves to send signals to the processor that is the brain. of course, there are many mysteries left unrevealed to mankind so far, and there could very well be a universal consciousness resonating in all things, though the behavior of atoms / elements / etc. seem to be that they have no choice but to do what they do every time they react / interact with other compounds. although, one time when i was incredibly baked, i had a strong feeling that the earth is more like the world of pandora than we realize yet.

Fuuuuuuuuuckingmmmiiiinddfuck!!!! Don't do that to me!

Wed, 09/26/2012 - 9:50am

now if the universe is just what we perceive and make reality(this is what i got out of your explanation) then how come the particle is so hard to find wouldn't in theory we just create it and find it easily. One more question is if we are just seeing information and making it into our reality how come i cant make money appear or move the universe around me to fly? just a thought

Wed, 09/26/2012 - 10:21am

This is why I come onto highdeas. Very well put. This reminds me of quantum physicsechanics... Just something to think about.
