I don't believe so. We each decide for our own reasons, no?

Other than asking everyone to "be nice", there's not much more conforming involved. Let your freak-flag-fly, as they used to say. So what about this Higgs boson particle anyway?

Aleksandra (akashavanalberict) | 2 comments What is the reason for opening this kind of group? :)
Aaaand what exactly is that particle thingy or are we discussing conformity?
Quantum Physics it's not my forte...and conformity is pretty strong word for just asking people to be "nice".
Just sayin'... :D

I'm always searching for new ideas...that's about it. I figure a bunch of readers and writers have lots of ideas to share. The Higgs Boson is the smallest particle as yet identified. It was first theorized 40 years ago and officially identified in July of 2012. The interesting this about the Higgs particle is that most of the time it is not a particle, it is "energy", or something, that is until it is observed...kind of complicated, but it brings to the fore the question of what is reality? If there is no true "matter", what is all of this stuff around us, us included...?

Aleksandra (akashavanalberict) | 2 comments I think that it would be pretty ironic if Matrix proved to be real (human fields of energy)...
I thought about existence and reality stuff a long time ago- gave myself a headache and concluded that if much smarter people than me couldn't resolve these questions, I certainly can't, and I gave up.
It would be interesting to hear the answers...

Yes, I have my own ideas. Some of which I'll be saving for my upcoming novel. But these are the things I ponder and am interested in hearing what others think about them.
