Buying an apple on July 4th

No!  July 4th will always be the same for me, fireworks for celebrating the American independence. As always, I had a big firework show in the backyard with a big BBQ party. Every firecracker went up to heaven with a loud-bang.

 

On the other hand, seemingly, “all” Higgs-firecrackers went dud on its first anniversary. It is rightfully so for two simple reasons.

 

1. A small reason —- no data of any kind is supporting a Higgs-firecracker. On July 4th, 2012, ATLAS alone can claim the discovery of a new boson with a mass about 125 Gev.   Yet, ATLAS has no additional data for the golden channels to support that that new boson is a Higgs of any kind thus far (on July 4th, 2013).

 

CMS did the same discovery claim on that same day. But, its March 2013 data showed that its discovery claim was sort of a mistake.  Instead of withdrawing its discovery claim, CMS released some data on the golden channels and claimed that the new boson is a Higgs of some sort.

 

There is a major problem for the CMS claim, its great data is written in statistics equation, similar to the story below.

Apple boy: $10 for { [1 (+/-) 1] Apple}

Grandmother: Hi, boy, here is a $10 bill.

Apple boy: Thanks grandmother.

Grandmother: Where is my Apple?

Apple boy: What Apple? There is no Apple (1 – 1 = 0 Apple).

Grandmother: How about the (1 + 1 = 2 Apple)?

Apple boy: Hi, grandmother, you never heard about the “error-bar” which happens only on the “on-sale day”, buy-one-get-one-free, and it happens only every zillion years.

 

Every statistics equation has two parts, the measurement (the body) and the error-bar (the tail). When the tail swallows the body, that equation is simply non-sense (although might still have some useful info for physicists).  Samuel Ting did not show the grandmother (the public) any number which has a tail bigger than the body in his AMS-02 presentation. But, most of released CMS golden channels data are the 0-Apple type, which will of course go dud.

 

 

2. The big reason —- there are two “solid” facts (not Apple-equations) known.

     a. Litmus test (http://prebabel.blogspot.com/2013/04/litmus-test-for-final-physics.html ) for the final physics is now fully developed and widely known. One of the tests is the derivation of “Alpha”, which is absolutely not an Apple-equation. No grandmother will be confused by the calculation of Alpha. The answer is simply “right” or “wrong”.

 

     b. Peter Woit wrote, “…  since the story of the last thirty years is not one of evidence for string  [M-] theory unification accumulating, but the opposite: the more we learn about string [M-] theory, the less likely it seems that it can predict anything.  … String [M-] theory unification [getting the Standard Model out of it] is an idea now discredited in the scientific community, … (http://www.math.columbia.edu/~woit/wordpress/?p=6002 )”

 

Yet, the G-string can easily reproduce all the 48 SM particles, and it is now available at Vixra.org (http://blog.vixra.org/2013/05/16/why-i-still-like-string-theory/#comment-32550 ). With this, the SM is now having a theoretical foundation, and this is easily understood by the grandmother, no Apple-trick.

 

Yet, these two solid facts point out that Higgs mechanism is simply fairy-tale. Thus, how can Higgs-firecracker not go dud on this special July 4th?
