"The common notion of Quantum Entanglement is for things at great distances. The Electro Motive Force theoretically drops off with the square of the radius like other forces. But the beam of a particle accelerator is like a wire without the solid structure of the wire. Faraday's law of induction definitely applies."
"This driveway intrigued me. I've never seen anything like it in Santa Clarita, California. I imagine it marks the meeting place of the Illuminati or some other ancient order. I did some research on the Wroclaw area and evidently in WWII the Nazis were doing some anti-gravity studies. (Go with me on this - I'm not sure of the veracity of these claims, but they make for interesting reading.) Anyway, just outside of Wroclaw deep in a mine the Nazis operated a secret laboratory where they worked on something called the Nazi Bell. Some say it was an anti-gravity experiment and others say it was a heavy particle accelerator. (I think a particle accelerator is like the straw I used to shoot pieces of napkin at my sister.)"
"The role of a particle accelerator is like a race track where the particles are like cars that are made to go faster and faster around the track then allowed to come off to smash into a wall at the end. The point is to see what the car is made of from the pieces that fly off of the wreckage of the crash."
"Thus, particles colliders do not reveal fundamental reality, but an emergent reality. In other words, trying to discover fundamental reality using particle accelerator is like looking at the wrong end of microscope to reveal the microcosm or at the wrong end of a telescope to observe the macrocosm. That is not to say that such instruments as the LHC are useless. On the contrary, such instruments are essential to our understanding of reality. It's only that what they show us is not fundamental reality, but processes that came into existence at states that followed the initial isotropic state of the Universe. "
"A particle accelerator is like throwing two apples at each other. As they collide they form a watermelon which immediately decays into raisins. The detectors pick up the raisins and it is the researchers' jobs to put the raisins back together to the form of the watermelon again."
"Simple, right? Not really. The hammer throw combines strength, balance and timing in an event that requires nearly perfect technique. So how does this make the hammer throw like a particle accelerator? "
A pretty good article this is.
"Actually, turning on a particle accelerator is like threading a needle -- they will spend weeks just getting stuff to orbit once without slamming into the wall, much less try to collide anything."
METAMIA is a free database of analogy and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search. The subject matter can be anything. Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged. The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with the stark literalism of a relational database. Metamia is like a girdle for your muses, a cognitive girdle.
