Nature’s master-key cuts out SUSY the undead

At Professor Matt Strassler’s blog, kashyap vasavada asked, {I am curious about -at what point researchers like you would conclude that there is no SUSY? Some unnamed people are hoping that it may be at extremely high energy ,unreachable by any realistic accelerator!}

Matt Strassler answered, {You’ve got to distinguish “there is no SUSY” (which it will be impossible to conclude in the next century or two) from “there is no SUSY at scales that are relevant for the hierarchy problem” (on which the LHC has already had, and will continue to have, enormous impact.)

Deciding when to conclude something for which there isn’t 100% proof is very difficult. It is a judgment call. I don’t think there will be a day when I say to myself: “today I’m absolutely sure there is no SUSY just out of reach of current experiments”. On the other hand, I never said, “today I’m sure there *is* SUSY just out of reach of current experiments”. This is something which at one point was somewhat plausible — and was once a bit more plausible than most other options, all of which were pretty bad — that will gradually become less and less plausible.

Generally, there’s no value to saying you know something for certain (i.e., drawing a “conclusion”) when in fact you don’t know. It’s my style to continue to keep an open mind. For what it is worth, I no longer consider supersymmetry at LHC energies more plausible than the appearance of something completely unexpected and unknown to humans.}

This is indeed a very important issue of today. Professor Matt Strassler has given a very professional answer. Yet, for an old grandmother, this issue can be viewed in a different angle.

Her granddaughter (the sleeping beauty) will wake up if she can take the elixir which is locked in a vault (protected by 10 steel doors). The legend says that only the Witch of the West has a master-key (called SUSY) for all those 10 doors. Before sending her puppy searching for it, she makes a search analysis first, as follow.

A. Her baby is in the bed called “universe” which has “four” parts.

a. visible part (VP) —- it has an “event-gate”. That is, every “event” in VP must be inside or through this gate.

b. invisible part (IP) —- outside of the visible part. Yet, any encounter (or contact) with this VP from IP must through this VP gate.

c. Contact horizon (CH) —- anything beyond CH has no “meaning” for getting the elixir.

So, the search issue is very simple. She must find out “one” answer. Where is the VP gate? By knowing that there is no “contact” at VP gate, the chance for her to get the elixir is nil. Of course, it will be nice if she know about the CH. If she knows that SUSY is beyond the CH, that SUSY has no “meaning” to her any more.

Thus, the issue is not about whether there is SUSY or not. The issue is about the VP gate (perhaps a tad about CH).  If the Witch of West comes to visit this universe less than once in the lifetime of this universe, there will be no SUSY for the grandmother.

B. One day, one of her friend comes and opens all the 10 doors. She will instantly forget that SUSY legend.

SUSY (with s-particles) has been with us over 40 years. Among the voices, only Professor Matt Strassler stands for physicist integrity  while many others have changed SUSY into either a religion or a name calling. One blog article made the following points.

In a blog post “SUSY, a scapegoat: different kinds of belief”, it listed three reasons for the greatness of SUSY.

a. The chance for LHC to discover SUSY is not more than 50% as … 100 Tev machine is needed for reaching the SUSY.

Note: This is a “catch-me-not-game”. If you stop trying to catch me, you lose. If you keep trying, I can always go one step beyond your reach.

b. Someone will defend SUSY even after his death.

Note: This becomes a great new religion, making the afterlife very meaningful.

c. With a super-SUSY equation:

anti-SUSY kibitzers = cranks  + stupidity  = anti-SUSY Mujahideens

That is, if he cannot win with reasoning, he can always win by name callings.

On August 31, 2013, Peter Woit wrote, “The big yearly SUSY conference, SUSY 2013 has been going on in Trieste this past week. From the experimentalists, the news is just stronger limits: no hint of SUSY anywhere in the LHC data. From the theorists, the reaction to this news has been pretty consistent: despite what people say, not a problem. …     However, if you look at Savas Dimopoulos’s talk the MSSM gets a grade of D-. He argues that the LHC has shown us that the answer is the Multiverse, and that split SUSY with its fine-tuning gets a grade of A. … Nima Arkani-Hamed’s talk was about SUSY in 2033, which in his vision will be pretty much the same as SUSY in 2010. Remember all those things the LHC was supposed to find but didn’t? Well, now the argument is that they’re really there, but we will need a 100 TeV collider to see them. …  and SUSY 2033 could feature all the SUSY 2010 talks retreaded, with 1 TeV gluinos moved up to 10 TeV. (http://www.math.columbia.edu/~woit/wordpress/?p=6221 ).

In addition to Matt’s points, Occam’s razor can settle this issue by reaching the “Bottom secret” of Nature by unlocking 10 locked doors with a master-key which consists of no SUSY (with s-particles).

Locked door 1. — The 48 Standard Model matter particles are now established as fact, but no theoretical base is known for their rising. This mystery is behind the first locked door.

Locked door 2. —  There are many coupling constants (such as Alpha, α), [Neff = 3] and some free parameters (such as, Cabibbo and Weinberg angles). Again, there is no theoretical base for their calculations. These mysteries are behind the second locked door.

Locked door 3. — The (dark/visible) mass ratio = 5.3526 is now a certainty. What is the theoretical base for its calculation? It is a mystery behind the third locked door.

Locked door 4. —  Quantum principle and Relativity are not compatible. How can it be made compatible? This issue includes the gravity unification. This mystery is behind the forth locked door.

Locked door 5. —  What is the theoretical base for giving rise to “charges” (e-, m- charge, etc.)?  Why is e-charge unique while m-charge diverges? This mystery is behind the fifth locked door.

Locked door 6. —  Universe is accelerating its expansion. What drives this? This is in fact the same issue of how the structures arise from a bowl of uniform soup. The mechanism which gives rise to structures will accelerate universe’s expansion. This is the mystery behind the sixth locked door.

Locked door 7. —  Neutrinos are oscillations. What powers these? This is the mystery behind the seventh locked door.

Locked door 8. —  Nature has three parts.

a. Material universe (Earth, Sun, galaxies, etc.), not including life.

b. Life

c. Numbers

Are those three parts governed by three disjoined sets of laws? Or they are governed by a unified set of laws?

Note: life has at least two distinct traits.

i. life process (reproduction and metabolism) which needs a computing device.

ii. individuality.

Are these two traits arising from the laws of physics? Or life gets them from somewhere else?

These mysteries are behind the eighth locked doors.

Locked door 9. —  What is time and space?  How do they arise? This is the same issue of how ħ (Planck constant) arose.  These are behind the ninth locked door?

Locked door 10. —  The Master-key test. Is the key for the nine doors above a Master-key or nine different keys? If it is not a Master-key, this tenth locked door cannot be opened.

With such a master key which consists of no SUSY, the SUSY (with s-particles) will simply be cut out by the Occam’s razor.  Yet, can such a master key be found? The following shows a definitely “Yes”.

Key 1. The 48 Standard Model matter particles are now established as fact, but no theoretical base is known for their rising. This mystery is behind the first locked door.

The G-strings reproduce all Standard model matter particles, see (http://prebabel.blogspot.com/2013/06/g-string-final-nail-seals-higgs-coffin.html ).

Key  2. There are many coupling constants (such as Alpha, α), [Neff = 3] and some free parameters (such as, Cabibbo and Weinberg angles). Again, there is no theoretical base for their calculations. These mysteries are behind the second locked door.

For calculations of Cabibbo angle, Weinberg angle and Alpha, Fine Structure Constant, see (http://prebabel.blogspot.com/2012/03/lhc-and-knowledge-based-phyiscs.html ).

Key  3. The (dark/visible) mass ratio = 5.3526 is now a certainty. What is the theoretical base for its calculation? It is a mystery behind the third locked door.

See “Dark matter, mystery no more, part 2! (http://prebabel.blogspot.com/2013/08/dark-matter-mystery-no-more-part-2.html )”.

Key  4. Quantum principle and Relativity are not compatible. How can it be made compatible? This issue includes the gravity unification. This mystery is behind the forth locked door.

See “Quantum algebra and axiomatic physics (http://prebabel.blogspot.com/2012/09/quantum-algebra-and-axiomatic-physics.html )”.

Key  5. What is the theoretical base for giving rise to “charges” (e-, m- charge, etc.)?  Why is e-charge unique while m-charge diverges? This mystery is behind the fifth locked door.

See “Axiomatic physics, the final physics (http://prebabel.blogspot.com/2012/04/axiomatic-physics-final-physics.html )”.

Key  6. Universe is accelerating its expansion. What drives this? This is in fact the same issue of how the structures arise from a bowl of uniform soup. The mechanism which gives rise to structures will accelerate universe’s expansion. This is the mystery behind the sixth locked door.

See “Acceleration of the expanding universe, mystery no more! (http://prebabel.blogspot.com/2012/05/acceleration-of-expanding-universe.html )”

Key  7. Neutrinos are oscillations. What powers these? This is the mystery behind the seventh locked door.

See “Neutrino oscillation, Mystery no more (http://prebabel.blogspot.com/2011/10/neutrino-oscillation-mystery-no-more.html )”.

Key  8. Nature has three parts.

a. Material universe (Earth, Sun, galaxies, etc.), not including life.

b. Life

c. Numbers

Are those three parts governed by three disjoined sets of laws? Or they are governed by a unified set of laws?

Note: life has at least two distinct traits.

i. life process (reproduction and metabolism) which needs a computing device.

ii. individuality.

These mysteries are behind the eighth locked doors.

Key  9. What is time and space?  How do they arise? This is the same issue of how ħ (Planck constant) arose.  These are behind the ninth locked door?

See “Origin of time, the breaking of a perfect symmetry (http://prebabel.blogspot.com/2012/04/origin-of-time-breaking-of-perfect.html ) and Origin of spatial dimensions, and the definition for dimension (http://prebabel.blogspot.com/2012/04/origin-of-spatial-dimensions-and.html ).

Key  10. The Master-key test. Is the key for the nine doors above a Master-key or nine different keys? If it is not a Master-key, this tenth locked door cannot be opened.

See “Litmus test for the final physics (http://prebabel.blogspot.com/2013/04/litmus-test-for-final-physics.html )  and The Rise of Gravity and Electric Charge (http://www.prequark.org/Gravity.htm )”.

With this master-key, it cuts out all SUSY (with s-particles).

{Note added on June 14, 2015:

“Paul Steinhardt [said]: inflation is a compelling story, it’s just not clear it is right… I’d appreciate that astronomers presented results as what they are (scale invariant etc) rather than ‘inflationary’… Everyone on this panel thinks multiverse is a disaster. …

Roger Penrose [said]: inflation isn’t falsifiable, it’s falsified… BICEP did a wonderful service by bringing all the Inflation-ists out of their shell, and giving them a black eye. (see http://www.math.columbia.edu/~woit/wordpress/?p=7812 )”

Amen!

These are great vindications for this paper (written 22 months ago), but it is better late than never. The truth will always prevail.}
