Every time I think I've got a grip someone throws a curve...

I have a two part PowerPoint on the moons in the Solar System, and it includes the footabe of the landing one of the ice moons. It's out of date, but the imagery is spectacular. My brother, the math and physics professor, worked at JPL on early space probes for years and before that at North American S&ID on Apollo. Back in the slide rule days. This is really fascinating. The visible universe really opens the imagination, 93 million light years across, that's all we can see from here. There has to be much more out there, and then you come to the "edge" where there is no-thing, and no time. Beyond our ability to imagine.

I think Feynman was on to something like the idea that in no-thing, without time, there is a scintilation of potential energy that pulls energy into existence, and with energy and scintilation events, you have intervals (time). Feynman said that the creation of energy (light) borrows from the future (potential time) to transform bursts of energy into what becomes matter. Not sure about Boson particles, but Boson field makes some sense.

Personally I think the shift from energy to matter is really just a matter of energy moving below the speed of light. Electrons move fast, but protons and nuclear particles are only moving at 40,000 miles per second. I like the simplicity of that model. Beats String Theory's 11 dimensions for elegant simplicity. No mass til the particles slow down through the forces that show up as they interact, before that, it's all energy.

Love this stuff. My brother and I go round all the time. He always reverts to math, however, in Math, both zero and infinity are assigned values, and therefore they don't represent the natural universe accurately and descent into Neutonian physics, the physics of "stuff."

I am with you on that one Harry. When the image reached the centre of the screen, they were all the same size/???

I recall seeing size comparison slide show that starts with a single hydrogen atom and builds out from there.

Here's another take on the theme: https://www.youtube.com/watch?reload=9&v=yq4uCWtQE24
