Although I am silent, I am never speechless. I speak in a language deeper than words. I speak in a universal language. I speak in the boom-ta-boom that underlies all language. It is a soundless sound that vibrates.
Quite a few people have asked me about the Higgs Boson – or ‘God’ particle, as it’s been named – that was discovered at CERN recently. They have asked what it is and what it means for us. The Higgs boson is a particle that gives most other particles mass. OK, that might not mean much so let me explain it a little differently.
