New Physics Beyond The Higgs? — When do scientists declare that something is “real”? that is, that something belongs to the collection of other particles we have found so far that make up all the material diversity we see? The Large Haldron Collider compiles and analyzes data it generates, then interpret the whole thing takes not just pushing technology to the limit and beyond. Such science also develops community rules of engagement in teams of thousands of physicists and engineers. Who calls the shots? How are decisions made? What’s more, such fundamental physics traces its origins to the beginnings of Western philosophy and even beyond — to questions related to our origins.
