I've been inside the brain of particle physics and I just have to say that it is really a wonderland, if you ask me. It is no wonder that they couldn't get controlled fusion to work... but at least their brains aren't completely fried on LSD, as what is apparent in the quantum physics brain. Particle physics thinks that a proton at rest is all jiggly like a blob of Jello. That's why a proton wount tell you anything unless you jam a rod up it's ass to make it break open.
Two tests determine a proton to be at a given diameter. Muons prove a proton to be at a smaller diameter. This is exactly the type of discrepancy that makes science types drop their defenses to explain the discrepancy. I'm kind of surprized that the muon folk prevailed since the implications of it are enourmous to my given way of thinking about things. When an electron jumps to a higher orbit, a bump appears on the surface of the proton... When an electron drops to a lower orbit, a dent appears on the surface of the proton. Well, muons prove that bumps and dents on the surface of a proton are actually in the ground effect layer. Muons bounce off of the ground which is beneath the ground effect layer. Protons have ground effect? Who wouldn't be shaking their heads in disbelief, methinks... Protons must be the hardest and most roundest spheres imaginable if they have ground effect. Muon Science is readily under CERN. Time stops and motion stops completely when the ground effect layers of two protons make contact. There is no momentum rule that says that the protons have to continue on course until they burst open after that point. The spray of particles is from ground effect and not from what is under ground effect.
