            What is the best way to overcome the historical injustice that the likes of Chien-Shiung Wu suffered? Women weren't even allowed to use the front door of the physics department she originally planned to attend. Not to mention the Nobel prize she should have been awarded for her later work. Manifestly unfair treatment of women and we recognise that today. Why not acknowledge those past injustices by awarding women only prizes today?

              Because then you are doing what you claim others of doing and awarding based on sex. Women and men have the same rights and opportunities today in all of the educated world (too bad about some of the east). Now it's just self serving politics and complete nonsense. Let everyone be free to be who they can.

              Let those who are most competent do any job they wish based on merit. FULL STOP. That's called equality. Anything else is a path to ruin and shown again and again in history.

            Wow, I like the way that the physicist Kenneth Ford describes quarks. He wrote in his book "The Quantum World" that "magically bursting forth are quarks spinning billions of times a second as 3 points of light, forming what are called protons and neutrons'.
            I like points of light as quarks. In this way I can add the quarks in each atom. For instance, the hydrogen atom spins super fast as 7 points of light. The carbon atom spins as 42 points of light. The oxygen atom spins as 56 points of light. People consist 100% as light. Light is eternal.

              Since people are 100% energy, then what they need to do to go visit other dimensions is to accelerate. When we "die" we accelerate the energy we are then pop out of these bodies.

                You don't have a presentation of how particles are made. You don't know why waves of energy and light resonate into frequencies and particles. Your presentation is about their existence.

                  Since mass is a form of energy, then why do people think that they die?
                  Well, death is a really huge lie and it seems that most physicists won't touch the subject with a 10 foot pole. But the physicist Barbara Brennan writes books about it. She is so successful proving that death does not exist that she has built a college system around the world. Her book "Hands of Light" has within it many pictures of what "people" look like as eternal energy beings or holograms.

                  If atoms have no electric charge, then why does the physicist Barbara Brennan say that we are electromagnetic, holographic and multidimensional energy and light beings? Physicists say that atoms are electrical magnetic energy field vibrations. Quarks spin neutrons and protons into existence. Spinning is what charge is. Perhaps a neutron spins as neither positive or negative. Can't a spin be neutral?

                    You are going to hurt yourself. Most atoms have neutral charge. A proton + and an electron -. When you add 1 and minus 1 you have a cancelled out charge. If you strip or add an electron to an atom then you have an ion which now has a net (total) charge one way or another.

                    Spinning is not what charge is. Quarks do not spin neutrons and protons into existence, but they are what protons and neutrons are made of. A spin can not be neutral. What does that even mean?

                    You go on an on about nonsense. I'm not sure what your goal is. I suggest looking up some of the basics and getting away from those horse shit energy after life books if you want to really understand reality.

                                    @Ghryst VanGhod Whoa!!! Regressive philosophical worldview much? "Psychological characters are based on sex"??? This is the type of pseudo-scientific nonsense that folks have used time and time again, to deny women rights that men have monopolized in many societies from the beginning of time - women were said to be "emotionally unstable", so they shouldn't be allowed to vote. They were said to be physically fragile, so they were denied equal opportunities in sporting opportunities, They were by some, regarded as intellectually inferior to men, so were denied equal educational opportunities. They were assigned and in many cases confined to condescending roles in society - child rearing, cooking, cleaning, housekeeping, looking after their husband (whom they were required to "love honor and OBEY" (yikes!! Even thinking about how insane that notion was, gives me chills - like men were their masters or owners, whom they had to obey or be punished like the family dog....). All my life i have found females to be equal to or in many cases superior to males, and have in fact, more close female friends than male. There are VERY few systematic, pre-determined psychological or intellectual differences between the genders: there are some tendencies and predispositions, and statistical differences between girls and boys, but there is considerable overlap in ALL parameters - trying to force girls and women into pre-determined roles and expectations has NO basis in science at all: they should have equal opportunity in all fields of endeavor.

                                    Regarding homosexuality being a "psycho-sexual disorder" (along with "mutated genitals", lol!!): this is simply not a viable option in light of the research done in the field in the past 50+ years.I strongly urge you to take a careful look at the recent science relating to this extremely 19th century notion.... with a completely open mind. Abandon pre-concieved beliefs on the matter, and look at the evidence with minimal bias. Homosexual interractions and attractions are common in many species: they are not "un-natural" in any way shape or form, nor are most homosexuals "disordered" in any objective manner.: the vast majority of the emotional and intellectual problems they exhibit in greater proportion to heterosexual people, are the result of historical and continuing discrimination and lack of acceptance in society, by people who continue to cling to the quaint but very dangerous notion that homosexuality is a problem or a disorder - or a choice.

                                      Dark energy (72% of the universe) condenses into dark matter(23% of the universe), which in turn condenses into visible,ordinary matter:- hydrogen (proton and electron). Apart from frequencies and wavelengths, there is no difference between ordinary matter, dark matter and dark energy, which are waves. My theory is supported by the recent discovery of a "bridge" of hydrogen connecting Andromeda and Triangulum, and also a "wall" of hydrogen at the outskirt of the solar system, which reveals nature's process of creation of matter.

                                        When Einstein said that energy and matter are interchangable, that meant there is no matter. What is called matter is a superposition of waves of energy. This is why solidity is an illusion.

                                      Quarks' masses do not add up to the mass of the particles they are supposed to compose, and they cannot be isolated from particles. Higgs Bosons have to be resorted to for a theory of the various masses of particles. However, Higgs Bosons have so far not been definitely spotted, and it is also not clear how they give masses to particles. I have an idea: skip Higgs Bosons (and quarks) and just calculate the masses of various particles using the laws of electromagnetism, treating protons as a dynamical system of neutrally stable equilibrium( something between a whirlpool and the solar system).

                                          QCD binding energy is a particular ratio of field probability in QFT?, so the inverse is the numerical locator of the Quark occupation-quantization site?

                                          "Sky" is an effective identifier for the atmosphere and beyond, and Time covers everything in existence in the same "sensible" manner. The word descriptions used for all details has the same quality of sense experience familiarity as the measure of things/physics. Actual quantities of real things are "self-explanatory", defined by having relative temporal duration, which includes energy and mass in e-Pi-i /resonance/numberness, relative positioning. That's the basis of QM-TIME.

                                          If I had not had an "Industrial" course in High School, I would have no sensory training and experience in the actual observable meaning of dimensionality that are qualified abstractions of Science courses, because the experiences of Geometry and Perspective Drawing are directed at the stratified layering of planning information on a nominated vanishing point distributed connection of modulated QM-Time Principle In-form-ation. Ie if you amplify visual senses by using lenses to focus on phenomena, then the reverse process of Time Timing in Eternity-now Superspin Interference positioning is conceptually available in superimposed fractal i-reflection e-Pi-i rational numberness, or Holographic Resonant Image integration Intuitions etc..

                                            If we are to believe the Big Bang theory then all the energy in the universe was produced at this point. That means that the energy first coalesced itself into a mere 6 types of quark (ignoring anti-quarks) which then somehow assembled themselves into hadrons, and then went on to form atoms of many variations. But we're also supposed to believe that there are no free quarks in existence. Where do gluons come from in this scheme? And are there any sub-quark and sub-gluon particles? It feels as though particle physics is starting to stray into religion!

                                              If you call religion the same as points of light, then yes. And why does energy form itself into anything at all? Can't it ever be clear enough that consciousness is at the heart of all this spinning and pulsating and rotating? What is the freaking big deal if consciousness is constantly creating us from waves of energy and light? How else could we think if quarks were not consciously bursting forth and spinning billions of times a second as 3 points of light, forming what are called protons and neutrons? Those quarks must have information ingrained within them.
                                              I have read books that say before there are spinning quarks, there are waves of consciousness. This consciousness is full of awareness and purpose. How else is there to be any force at all? And thinking that there is no consciousness anywhere within all this spinning would be magic itself. So why not say that consciousness seems to be the magic? To say we are conscious just out of the blue is magical thinking.
                                              When Kenneth Ford wrote these words: 'magically bursting forth are quarks spinning billions of times a second as 3 points of light, forming what are called protons and neutrons' he was describing constant creation and the big bang. "Bursting forth" sounds like the big bang to me. Time is an illusion. The big bang shows itself constantly each time it bursts forth. We are bursting forth constantly in the moment. This is what energy does.
                                              Look at the subatomic level where quarks and photons and electrons are constantly changing into each other. It is just marvelous. And each time a quark bursts forth and spins billions of times a second, imagery is happening, which is why the physicist Barbara Brennan says we are holograms. With all this super fast spinning and bursting forth, nothing is solid. So we have to be holographic images. And you thought consciousness was unlikely.

                                            Ok so apparently if we want to encourage girls into science and technology we have to focus less on crash bang wallop and instead make it all pink and fluffy. What utter stereotypical nonsense that statement was in the intro.

                                              The three quark model of the proton is total BS. It's a totally ad hoc theory. It is the modern version of JJ Thompson's plum pudding model of the atom of 110 years ago. In what fashion do the three quarks orbit one another? No answer. Why are there three quarks? No answer. It's total BS. It explains nothing. How do they know that quarks have fractional electric charge when they can't isolate them? By a very questionable chain of logical deductions? Yes. Quarks are probably created when protons smash into one another but do not exist inside the proton. Is a good way to understand how watches work to smash them together and look at the pieces? Really? Then watches are made of broken and melted pieces of metal and glass. Oh, brilliant deduction Sherlock. If you believe there are three quarks in a proton then you might also believe the earth is resting on a giant tortoise. The emperor has no clothes. Quark theory is rubbish.

                                                From scattering observations. Also the triple jets observed in collisions. Also it is a lay explanation that only 3 exist, infinite quarks can occupy the space but must have a color charge totalling zero.

                                                      I hate to tell you but mass is not a form of energy. Not by a long chance. Since 2005 when this was filmed much had changed.

                                                        she clearly states that mass is a characteristic of entities interacting with the Higgs field

                                                        Mike, can't incineration convert mass into energy?

                                                        There is no such thing as mass , just confined energy. That is way mass and energy cannot be converted and ARE NOT interchangeble!

                                                        Mass is confined energy . That is way a photon can keep running wild throu space , it hasnt walls to keep it on a single place. When that it does happen ,then a photon (light) does 2 things : it gets reflected or refracted . Either way when light stops on something it will loss its energy , and that energy will became a part of the mass of the sistem that he bump into ..Meaning more confined energy!
