There is no equal representation under the law. The country needs an overhaul.

Cool post.
I’m always intrigued by physicists trying to prove “foundational-or-samller” particles.
It gives Einstein a chubby.

Then, I always ask, “So, what can we /DO/ with the particle now that we know Einstein was right*?”
I mean, can we grind up a couple gorillion Moles of them and use them as “anyon butter” on our toast?
I get no answers other than “Excelsior!”

* I know Einstein didn’t theorize anyons.
I use his name as a device.

I kind of understand this.

Is there a practical application for this stuff? Or does it lead to, “What are these things made of?”

Your comment makes as much sense as any on this thread! Maybe even more.

The quasiparticles have been shown to coalesce into circular configurations, forming anyon rings.

I will not rest until so-called “fundamental” particles relinquish their privilege, and quasiparticles are accorded full particle status.

Isaac Asimov wrote a entertaining, easy-to-read book on the neutrino. That’s as far as I got, before tuning out on particle physics.

As a general matter, I think each of us should try to distinguish between science, science speculation, and science fiction. I saw a celebrity physicist on TV talk of an infinite number of universes as though that was a fact. I would put that more in the category of science fiction or science speculation.
