For those who are not scientifically initiated, these knowledge simply posed nonsensical jargons. But they too agreed to the immense potentials of modern science that changed there way of living altogether by means of TV, computers, internet, mobile phones and the like. The practical side of science made the laymen to believe in scientists even when they had little knowledge about the works that they actually carried out.
Science and scientists got high acceptability and there was a time when many of the just initiated scientists believing in the supremacy of humans in everything with the advancement of science.
At the same time, scientists of the highest knowledge and wisdom, have been realizing an exhaustion of their rationalized thoughts. They were realizing the existence of an immense and all pervading power working invisibly behind all recognizable forms of energy and matter.
Yes, slowly they were zeroing into a reality that the philosophers and spiritualists have recognized long back. The existence of an all wise God behind everything.
Perhaps that caused the British Scientist Peter Higgs to propose his theory some 48 years ago. He postulated that some invisible force or energy field that pervades the whole space of the universe is responsible for giving mass to the building blocks of all elements of matter.
Initially most other scientists were reluctant to accept his theory. But as years passed, more and more scientists were drawn to think over it and slowly their scientific logics and experiments were compelling them to accept the possibility of God behind our existence.
The scientific community seemed divided over God. There were eminent scientists like Einstein who accepted God's providence behind everything in our universe. But there have been a considerable lot among them who ridiculed the idea.
So some one among them sarcastically called Higgs' postulated particle as ' God's Particle', perhaps thinking that it is never going to be proved.
Over the years the scientific community became so obsessed with it. Experimental evidence of God's particle was going to change their concepts for ever !
The time and costs for this were not going to deter them from this effort.
So began the massive international scientific effort in human history and the installation of the biggest scientific apparatus ever made by man- the Hadron Collider.
I do not know how much India contributed to this international effort of finding the God's particle.
Satyendra Nath's work in the USA nearly a century ago was not of much concern to common Indians and perhaps no one ever would have known him without this science experiment. Unfortunately, he did not live to see his name catapulting high in these years.
But now the time has come to break this compartmentalisation.
Incidentally, the Urantia Book authors declared to the world in 1955 that the electron is not the smallest particle of matter. They informed us that the electron is in reality made up of 100 minute building sub-electronic particles which they called the 'ultimaton'.
For the convenience of my readers, let me quote some relevant quotes from this book in this context:
The foundation of the universe is material in the sense that energy is the basis of all existence, and pure energy is controlled by the Universal Father (God). Force, energy, is the one thing which stands as an everlasting monument demonstrating and proving the existence and presence of the Universal Absolute. This vast stream of energy proceeding from the Paradise Presences has never lapsed, never failed; there has never been a break in the infinite upholding.
There is innate in matter and present in universal space a form of energy not known on Urantia (Earth). When this discovery is finally made, then will physicists feel that they have solved, almost at least, the mystery of matter. And so will they have approached one step nearer the Creator; so will they have mastered one more phase of the divine technique; but in no sense will they have found God, neither will they have established the existence of matter or the operation of natural laws apart from the cosmic technique of Paradise and the motivating purpose of the Universal Father.
Energy proceeds from Paradise, fashioned after the divine order. Energy—pure energy—partakes of the nature of the divine organization; it is fashioned after the similitude of the three Gods embraced in one, as they function at the headquarters of the universe of universes. And all force is circuited in Paradise, comes from the Paradise Presences and returns thereto, and is in essence a manifestation of the uncaused Cause—the Universal Father; and without the Father would not anything exist that does exist.
It is indeed difficult to find suitable words in the English language whereby to designate and wherewith to describe the various levels of force and energy—physical, mindal, or spiritual. These narratives cannot altogether follow your accepted definitions of force, energy, and power. There is such paucity of language that we must use these terms in multiple meanings. In this paper, for example, the word energy is used to denote all phases and forms of phenomenal motion, action, and potential, while force is applied to the pregravity, and power to the postgravity, stages of energy.
Matter in all universes, excepting in the central universe, is identical. Matter in its physical properties depends on the revolutionary rates of its component members, the number and size of the revolving members, their distance from the nuclear body or the space content of matter, as well as on the presence of certain forces as yet undiscovered on Urantia (Earth).
In the varied suns, planets, and space bodies there are ten grand divisions of matter:
1. Ultimatonic matter—the prime physical units of material existence, the energy particles which go to make up electrons.2. Subelectronic matter—the explosive and repellent stage of the solar supergases.3. Electronic matter—the electrical stage of material differentiation—electrons, protons, and various other units entering into the varied constitution of the electronic groups.4. Subatomic matter—matter existing extensively in the interior of the hot suns.5. Shattered atoms—found in the cooling suns and throughout space.6. Ionized matter—individual atoms stripped of their outer (chemically active) electrons by electrical, thermal, or X-ray activities and by solvents.7. Atomic matter—the chemical stage of elemental organization, the component units of molecular or visible matter.8. The molecular stage of matter—matter as it exists on Urantia in a state of relatively stable materialization under ordinary conditions.9. Radioactive matter—the disorganizing tendency and activity of the heavier elements under conditions of moderate heat and diminished gravity pressure.10. Collapsed matter—the relatively stationary matter found in the interior of the cold or dead suns. This form of matter is not really stationary; there is still some ultimatonic even electronic activity, but these units are in very close proximity, and their rates of revolution are greatly diminished.Light, heat, electricity, magnetism, chemism, energy, and matter are—in origin, nature, and destiny—one and the same thing, together with other material realities as yet undiscovered on Urantia (Earth).
Throughout all space, cold and other influences are at work creatively organizing ultimatons into electrons. Heat is the measurement of electronic activity, while cold merely signifies absence of heat—comparative energy rest—the status of the universal force-charge of space provided neither emergent energy nor organized matter were present and responding to gravity.
Temperature—heat and cold—is secondary only to gravity in the realms of energy and matter evolution. Ultimatons are humbly obedient to temperature extremes. Low temperatures favor certain forms of electronic construction and atomic assembly, while high temperatures facilitate all sorts of atomic breakup and material disintegration.
When subjected to the heat and pressure of certain internal solar states, all but the most primitive associations of matter may be broken up. Heat can thus largely overcome gravity stability. But no known solar heat or pressure can convert ultimatons back into puissant energy.
Throughout all of this never-ending metamorphosis of energy and matter we must reckon with the influence of gravity pressure and with the antigravity behavior of the ultimatonic energies under certain conditions of temperature, velocity, and revolution. Temperature, energy currents, distance, and the presence of the living force organizers and the power directors also have a bearing on all transmutation phenomena of energy and matter.
The increase of mass in matter is equal to the increase of energy divided by the square of the velocity of light. In a dynamic sense the work which resting matter can perform is equal to the energy expended in bringing its parts together from Paradise minus the resistance of the forces overcome in transit and the attraction exerted by the parts of matter on one another.
The relative integrity of matter is assured by the fact that energy can be absorbed or released only in those exact amounts which Urantia (Earth) scientists have designated as quanta. This wise provision in the material realms serves to maintain the universes as going concerns.
The quantity of energy taken in or given out when electronic or other positions are shifted is always a “quantum” or some multiple thereof, but the vibratory or wavelike behavior of such units of energy is wholly determined by the dimensions of the material structures concerned. Such wavelike energy ripples are 860 times the diameters of the ultimatons, electrons, atoms, or other units thus performing. The never-ending confusion attending the observation of the wave mechanics of quantum behavior is due to the superimposition of energy waves: Two crests can combine to make a double-height crest, while a crest and a trough may combine, thus producing mutual cancellation.
Primordial-force behavior does give rise to phenomena which are in many ways analogous to your postulated ether. Space is not empty; the spheres of all space whirl and plunge on through a vast ocean of outspread force-energy; neither is the space content of an atom empty. Nevertheless there is no ether, and the very absence of this hypothetical ether enables the inhabited planet to escape falling into the sun and the encircling electron to resist falling into the nucleus.
Local or linear gravity becomes fully operative with the appearance of the atomic organization of matter. Preatomic matter becomes slightly gravity responsive when activated by X ray and other similar energies, but no measurable linear-gravity pull is exerted on free, unattached, and uncharged electronic-energy particles or on unassociated ultimatons.
Ultimatons function by mutual attraction, responding only to the circular Paradise-gravity pull. Without linear-gravity response they are thus held in the universal space drift. Ultimatons are capable of accelerating revolutionary velocity to the point of partial antigravity behavior, but they cannot, independent of force organizers or power directors, attain the critical escape velocity of deindividuation, return to the puissant-energy stage. In nature, ultimatons escape the status of physical existence only when participating in the terminal disruption of a cooled-off and dying sun.
The ultimatons, unknown on Urantia (Earth), slow down through many phases of physical activity before they attain the revolutionary-energy prerequisites to electronic organization. Ultimatons have three varieties of motion: mutual resistance to cosmic force, individual revolutions of antigravity potential, and the intraelectronic positions of the one hundred mutually interassociated ultimatons.
Mutual attraction holds one hundred ultimatons together in the constitution of the electron; and there are never more nor less than one hundred ultimatons in a typical electron. The loss of one or more ultimatons destroys typical electronic identity, thus bringing into existence one of the ten modified forms of the electron.
If the mass of matter should be magnified until that of an electron equaled one tenth of an ounce, then were size to be proportionately magnified, the volume of such an electron would become as large as that of the earth. If the volume of a proton—eighteen hundred times as heavy as an electron—should be magnified to the size of the head of a pin, then, in comparison, a pin’s head would attain a diameter equal to that of the earth’s orbit around the sun.
Well, my dear friend, it is much more detailed in this book. This book was printed first in 1955 and the papers were actually handed over to humans a few decades earlier. That was the time when a few of our scientists were laboring to discover more about the atoms and the new scientific discoveries on electricity and radiation. At that time what they knew remained privy to only the select few scientists of the top institutions of the world. The laymen and the general media had no idea on all these.
If you have read so far, perhaps you can now judge that our scientists have not yet discovered the real God's particle, the ultimaton. But ofcourse, they are leading to it.
In my opinion the scientific community would definitely benefit, if they start reading the Urantia Book. Many have done that, though they do not admit it for reasons I have mentioned.
