In modern physics, there is no such thing as “nothing.” Even in a perfect vacuum, pairs of virtual particles are constantly being created and destroyed. The existence of these particles is no mathematical fiction. Though they cannot be directly observed, the effects they create are quite real. The assumption that they exist leads to predictions that have been confirmed by experiment to a high degree of accuracy.” ~ Richard Morris
I’ll admit. I’m curious about the God Particle. There’s that catchy subtitle: If God is the Answer, Then What is the Question? Ever since reading the book, I became intrigued with the subatomic particle called the Higgs Boson. Dr. Peter Higgs, the 84-year old man who the particle was named after describes it as such, adding a chuckle to his explanation in a radio interview:
“…these particles are just packages of energy of some kind of field, and the feature [that] distinguishes this kind of theory, which leads to this kind of symmetry breaking, is the existence of what we, theoretical physicists, call the vacuum, which means nowadays something different than what it used to mean. It’s just the lowest energy state that you could possibly have in which there are no particles around but there maybe something around. And that something around can be a background field of some sort, which pervades the universe.”
Essentially Higgs suggests that the background field interacts with all the other ‘stuff’ of the Universe, generating elementary particles and things that have mass. The background field is comprised of the ‘Higgs Boson.’
As some have inquired, if this field exists everywhere and interacts with matter to give it mass, then why do we need a high energy collision to produce a Higgs Boson? And if it decays to other particles, how can it be the preeminent building block of all things? How can it be the God-particle at all? If the Higgs field, comprised of decaying particles, is truly the background upon which many particles interact, how can it be the omnipresent, origin of the Universe?
The documentary film Particle Fever explains the technology which helped lead to this ‘discovery’ of the God particle. The Hadron collider is possibly the biggest machine ever built. It is based at the CERN, a particle physics laboratory in Geneva, Switzerland. (It also happened to cost $300 billion to construct). Some say the collider recreates conditions within a billionth of a second after the Big Bang. It basically smashes two things together and then scientists try to figure out what to make of the remains. 100,000 computers are required to analyze the data that comes from this smashing of particles.
Granted, there are disparate reasons to play with God’s creation. Some are looking for the origins of the Universe; others are looking for ways to blow us to smithereens in advanced nuclear warfare. ‘God’s’ power is not to be taken lightly.
Some had made their minds up about the Higgs Boson, giving it the unquestioning attention that such a name infers, but there are minds who looked at a set of questions about the ‘God particle’ from a totally different perspective. One of them is Nassim Haramein.
Haramein is a Geneva, Switzerland-born physicist who developed the basis for a unified hyperdimensional theory of matter and energy which he calls the ‘Holofractographic Universe.” A true phenom, at 9 years of age he started questioning space and time, as well as the science that suggested the origins of all things. Since then he has studied the fundamental geometry of hyperspace, theoretical physics, cosmology, quantum mechanics, biology, chemistry, anthropology and ancient civilizations.
Haramein wasn’t satisfied with mainstream science, as he calls it, especially mainstream physics. There were too many obvious questions that his peers left unanswered. It was Haramein who, in 1997, at an interdisciplinary scientific conference called the Sequoia Symposium suggested black holes should be redefined as white holes/black holes considering there was a concentric interaction between the two. To further this claim, a recent quote given by Stephen Hawking from an article at the Resonance Project Foundation states that a redefinition of black holes is fitting. He said they should be called grey holes since information (both matter and energy) can go in, and come out as well.
Haramein argues that based on the current perspective which limits god to a ‘particle’ we are missing something. He reminds us that first we thought cells were the smallest thing, then the atom, then the electron, then quarks, then the X-boson, and so on – disbelieving there could be anything smaller. What becomes obvious to some is that physicists are merely dividing space – and there is much more space in the Universe than matter. Haramein says we can keep dividing until we are blue in the face – spending trillions more on colliders that can handle even smaller particles, but it would be a total waste of time.
It goes the other direction as well. We once thought our planet was the biggest thing around, then we realized we were part of a solar system, then a singular Universe, and so on. Now we know, just like Russian dolls, a Universe can be imbedded in a larger nested, and so on, to infinity. He suggests looking instead, at a fundamental pattern for creation, instead of a fundamental particle.
Once again divine geometry comes into play. The way space is divided, is how he came up with the ‘God pattern’ or the foundation of creation. Many different religious and esoteric traditions have suggested that geometry was the secret to all creation. Even the merkaba, or energetic field of the human form follows divine geometry.
Both Tibetan Buddhist and Hindu mandalas are an artistic interpretation of this same God pattern. The word mandala itself is derived from the root manda, which means essence. The art is simply a container of ‘the essence’ of this fundamental pattern. Those who construct mandalas believe they have no dimension, though they are created in either three- dimensional or two- dimensional space.
Even artists from recent history understood divine geometry. Leonardo Da Vinci was well versed in the phenomenon as evidenced in both his commentary and work. He studied the ‘flower of life’ extensively. The Mayans were aware of this divine archeological rhythm as well. It shows up in temples in Chichen Itza, and other sacred places.
In more ancient history, the Temple of Osiris at Abydos, Egypt contains the oldest ‘Seed of Life’ to date. It is formed from seven circles in six-fold symmetry. It is unknown why the symbol was carved into granite, but some suggest it represents the ‘Eye of Ra,’ a pharaohic and religious authority of the time.
This flower of life and seed of life pattern appear all over the world. They were considered a part of the alchemists’ secrets, and the Metatron’s cube is based upon it.
The Jains and the Vedics understood this pattern, as evidenced by the work of Bharati Krsna Tirthaji, for example, and so did the Kabalists, discussed extensively in the Sefer Yetzirah, in which it references “the cube of space.”
If so many ancient cultures understood the God pattern, then why is Haramein butting heads with mainstream physicists still? Even the Illuminati are said to have worshipped divine geometry. It shows up in crop-circles, too. Is this because ancient alien races knew of this ‘secret’ as well, and the less noble of them wanted to prevent human beings from knowing their connection to this ever-lasting pattern – that they were born of the ‘egg of life’ too? It seems modern scientists have been barking up the wrong tree, and the ‘secret’ of creation has been under our noses all along.
