USA - Demon Particles?

Arno Froese

Physicists have discovered a transparent, massless, and neutral “demon” particle that could help scientists understand superconductors better, according to a new study by researchers from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.

The study, published in the journal Nature, focused on the search for a particle first theorized by physicist David Pines in 1956.

Demon particles, which can also be conceptualized as waves, would be different. Since they’re massless, they can form with any energy and, therefore, at any temperature.

Pines theorized that electrons in a solid would be able to combine to form two plasmons which would then fall out of phase with each other in such a way that the peaks of one plasmon’s waves would coincide with the valleys of the other plasmon’s waves. This new quasiparticle would be massless, neutral, and would not interact with light. Pines referred to this theoretical particle as a “demon.”

This method of examination uses energy from electrons shot into the metal to directly observe the metal’s features, including plasmons. While looking through the data they had collected, the researchers found something unexpected: an electronic mode without mass.

“At first, we had no idea what it was,” said former graduate student Ali Husain, co-author of the study. “Demons are not in the mainstream. The possibility came up early on, and we basically laughed it off. But, as we started ruling things out, we started to suspect that we had really found the demon.”, 13 August 2023

Arno's Commentary

The word “demon” caught our attention. It does not appear in most translations of the Bible; usually, the word “devils” is used. Since there is only one devil, we know that “demons” is probably a better translation.

The article was sub-headlined, “Massless, invisible demon quasiparticles…” Obviously, there is no end in sight to these scientists the world over feverishly seeking “where it all began.” A Google search reveals about David Bohm: “Some scientists seek to clarify reality, others to mystify it. Physicist David Bohm seemed driven by both impulses. He is renowned for promoting a sensible (according to experts like Einstein, John Bell and philosopher Tim Maudlin) interpretation of quantum mechanics. But Bohm also asserted that science can never fully explain the world.” Yes, the professor is right, “science can never fully explain the world.” Why not? Because, then they could explain God, who created all things. Proverbs 1:7 proclaims: “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.” If one wants to learn how things began, just read the first ten words in the Bible: “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth” (Genesis 1:1).
