Skip to comments.New Physics Complications Lend Support to Multiverse Hypothesis

The spectacular discovery of the Higgs boson in July 2012 confirmed a nearly 50-year-old theory of how elementary particles acquire mass, which enables them to form big structures such as galaxies and humans. The fact that it was seen more or less where we expected to find it is a triumph for experiment, its a triumph for theory, and its an indication that physics works, Arkani-Hamed told the crowd.
However, in order for the Higgs boson to make sense with the mass (or equivalent energy) it was determined to have, the LHC needed to find a swarm of other particles, too. None turned up.

I'm glad to hear this because I'm too dumb to understand this stuff anyway.
It is said that in at least one of the Multiverses
the US Congress is NOT an abject treasonous,
selfserving failure, groveling to help
Enemies of the people of the USA.
It is said, but not seen on this planet.
Their model sure doesn’t make any sense. That is why they keep coming up with nonsense like “Dark Matter.”
I have to admit in delighting in the paradox that the more we believe we know about the universe the less we understand it.
Dark matter ?
That’s borderline racist.
“Can’t we all just get along?”
i question if they really found a higgs boson given the lack of expected particles. there is more than one explanation than it must mean a multiverse.
what i don’t understand is why people listen to these educated stupid people.
God is the explanation. More evidence for God than a multiverse.
“Yet a few constants including the mass of the Higgs boson are exponentially different from what these trusted laws indicate they should be, in ways that would rule out any chance of life, unless the universe is shaped by inexplicable fine-tunings and cancellations.”
And God laughs last.
One night, I travelled to another universe. All sorts of wild things were happening! Animals were talking! Water was air! Then I realized I was just watching a Spongebob Squarepants cartoon.
if there are an infinite number of universes then there are an infinite number of answers to any question
or, which would seem about the same thing,
no particular answer to anything?
When I was growing up, I took a particular interest in nuclear physics. And I majored in it in college, until I changed my mind and went elsewhere.
Frankly, science has gotten so politicized and ideological since then that you can scarcely believe anything you read these days. Global warming, multiverse theory, no one allowed to question evolution in the public schools. . . .
Yep, we just had to get the evil Spock, didn’t we?
I think we got stuck with the evil Spork, Evil Spock has a sense of honor if nothing else.
If the universe doesn't make sense, then literally anything is possible because reason (sense) can't rule it out... abracadabra magic, faster than light travel, God Himself. In trying to prove He doesn't exist, science seems to have tied itself into a knot.
It occurs to me that Higgs Boson would be an excellent name for a car model.
Now presenting the Multiverse: brought to you by Occam’s two-by-four.
If there are multiple universes can I click my heels and go to the one where Bozo is still a homosexual mule out of Afghanistan? (I guess I better be careful what I ask for.)
Agree with your #8.
The more I learn and speculate about God, the more likely it is to me that there are indeed multiverses. IMO, multiverses would give meaning and dimension to the concept of infinity.
