We Think Therefore We Are

If you can imagine it, then it can become a reality

ADAM Spencer (no relation) gives a wonderful speech about the beauty of mathematics, the search for the largest prime number, and the age in which we now live – the age of machine aided human discovery.

As Adam poetically states, “numbers are the musical notes with which the symphony of the universe is written.” And machines are now being used to help us discover that universe.

In 2012, the world’s most expensive and complex machine (the Large Hadron Collider) was used to prove the existence of the Higgs boson; a previously unknown particle, which 50 years ago Peter Higgs and his team proposed should exist in order to explain why some particles have mass.

If you can imagine it, then it can become a reality.
