Last December 2011, I wrote a blog about the Higgs Boson, the “God particle.” Today, CERN researchers at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) have formally announced the discovery of the Higgs Boson in a press conference attended by theoretical physicists including Peter Higgs after whom the boson was named.
Here is what I wrote in my earlier blog:
The confirmation of the Higgs Boson of quantum physics (read related posts here in our site), dubbed the “God Particle,” is about to revolutionize science, and, I expect, our worldview of existence, reality, life, and the universe, including our puny human selves. To a practicing mystic, this could well globally usher in the transformative understanding and illumination that the world of matter is indeed not only fleetingly unreal but also truly illusory — something that mystics down through time’s corridors have realized for ages. And hopefully, with that understanding will come the realization that all existence emanates from a Zero Point Field, a singularity of emptiness and no-thing-ness, a total void against which the etheric light of individuated Christ-consciousness shines — our true Self.
Humanity is entering a new epoch in its understanding of the material universe, which in turn will bring the renaissance of mysticism as the true spirituality for the third millennium.
