    Do We Gain From The Arts

    of arts ( arts is more near to beliefs and values and, perspectives which varies from person to person) whereas natural science is highly dependent on reason and rationality as way to produce scientific knowledge. Artistic knowledge is completely different from scientific knowledge in the sense that there is no artistic method which the artist has to follow to produce new knowledge. Whereas the natural sciences have to abide by the scientific method to be declared true which makes it more objective. Moreover perception and reason combine to provide the major justification for accepting knowledge claims in natural science. For example higgs boson - this was a theoretical idea that has kept bothering scientists for more than fifty years. The idea is universe consists of twelve fundamental particles and the twelfth is the higgs boson. So the higgs boson was developed in theory by scientist using the previously existing shared knowledge continuum. But it was never seen in practical which prevented scientist from accepting the theory, until it was discovered at the large hadron collider in Geneva. So science is heavily reliant on reason which is used to project its objectivity. Whereas arts is more reliant on individual belief and perspectives which varies from person to person. This actually separates art from every other area of knowledge because it gives insight into human conditions that can’t be expressed by other areas of knowledge. So arts represent something which even…

    brings attention to the different view of the arts and sciences as two interdependent subjects. The director, Dr. David Kaplan, uses the documentary to give his audience an inside view to the world’s largest experiment at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) with the use of the Large Hardon Collider (LHC). The LHC is the world’s largest accelerated. The massive machine accelerates particles into each other in order to see the “God” particle, the Higgs Boson. Throughout the…

    important for their research to be funded. The film focuses on the creation of the Large Hadron Collider, which cost $10 billion and took 19 years to create. This machine is very important in proving or disproving over 30 years of theories and ideas about how we humans and the world were created. The main theory scientists are trying to solve is if the Higgs Boson Particle actually exists. The film focused on a handful of people, theorists and experimentalist, who both had a hand in the creation…

    For example, I love the idea of physics, but I struggle in understanding and working out problems or figuring out how things work in the field or theoretically. Though I did not understand the topic very well, I chose to get educated. I bought some books on theoretical physics and began reading. Recently, I finished a book about the Higgs Boson. I did not understand it on the first read thorough completely but now I can go back and re-read it and even make my way down the hall to have a…

    The data is sent through the brain, analyzed, and returned to what many call the “soul,” the essential spectral part of us that turns our brains into minds. In essence, the soul is what makes humans “human.” Although we do indeed receive raw data, I would argue that what we see, as humans, is interpreted by a separate part of our body and returned as more than just data. With the passage through the soul, like the Higgs Boson giving mass, the Sense Data achieves greater attributes beyond just…

    Each year, the Nobel Prize awards people with outstanding contributions for humanity in chemistry, literature, peace, physiology or medicine, and physics. This year the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences has decided to award the Nobel Prize in Physics to Takaaki Kajita from Japan and Arthur B. McDonald from Canada “for the discovery of neutrino oscillations, which shows that neutrinos have mass.” Their discovery was announced to be a historic discovery for particle physics. After a various amount…

    study the basic constituents of matter – the fundamental particles. On 4 July 2012, CERN and Collaborative companies, experiment at Large Hadron Collider announced they had each observed a new particle. This particle is called the Higgs boson predicted by the Standard Model. The Higgs boson, as proposed that this particle is the simplest manifestation of the Brout-Englert-Higgs mechanism, which is The basic equations of the unified theory correctly describe the electroweak force and its…

    covered by his academic robes, Crowe highlights not a ‘throne’ as his source of authority but rather his academic achievements. Crowe choice to depict Lang in his Vice Chancellors robe rather than the Principals robe could act as a sign of respect to the historic hierarchy of the University. Much as the British Monarch garners reverence as the formal head of state from the Prime Minister, so the role of the Chancellor – the titular head of the University – is alluded to through Crowe’s choice of…

    In 1964 a physicist by the name of Peter Higgs took some ideas that were floating around at the time, added an insight or two of his own, and proposed that there was an energy field that permeated the entire universe. This energy field is now called the Higgs filed. The reason he proposed this field was that nobody understood why some subatomic particles had a great deal of mass, while others had little and some had none at all. The energy filed that Higgs proposed would interact with the…

    Higgs Boson essay Written by Nicola Racape In this essay, I will briefly talk about Peter Higgs and of the significance of his discovery of the God particle. I will also mention how Large Hadron collider functions and the link to our universe to this discovery. I will write about how society will benefit from these discoveries and if it really is worth investing in these operations or should the money be spent elsewhere. Peter Higgs named his discovery the god particle, the key reason…
