Crunch time for physics: What's next? (New Scientist)
"There is nothing new to be discovered in physics now" was supposedly a common refrain among late-Victorian scientists – shortly before quantum theory and Einstein’s relativity overturned everything.
Last year’s discovery of the Higgs boson capped decades of sculpting quantum theory into the standard model of particle physics – yet it, too, is found wanting. Meanwhile, melding the two pillars of 20th-century physics into one "theory of everything" remains a dream.
It may once again be time for a radical rethink, starting with the most fundamental question of all…
What makes us so sure that mathematics can reveal nature's deepest workings, asks cosmologist
Price Gouging: The Incredible Helplessness of the ConsumerThe Helplessness is a Two Edged Sword
- Divided we fall
- Our bread and butter stems solely from supporting the ‘economic/corporate system’ we work for – we willingly cut our own economic throats for paychecks.
Additional considerations: From the elimination of durable goods - products that lasted a lifetime - to quadruple priced, exquisitely shiny, six month lifespan substitutes………………to ‘lifelike’, size enhanced packaging, only a quarter to half full of product, triple the price of previous, dull, but full packages. (imagine the promotions and salary increases for these ideas).
The 10 Food Items Seeing The Largest Price Hikeshttp://www.huffingtonpost.ca/2014/05/15/food-price-hikes_n_5329627.html
Editor's note: From cattle trail drives of old, to massive, colossal, enormous, gigantic concentrated mass production with unprecedented cost savings is the reason for price hikes ….go consumer go, go, go!
65 miles wide and 163 miles long
About 93 per cent of the grocery items that comprise StatsCan’s basket used to compile the rate of inflation each month have risen, with most jumping by double digits, according to StatsCan data from March 2010 to March 2014. Consumers are paying at least 20 per cent more than they were in 2010 for each of the items on the list of top 10 foods with the biggest price jumps.
Editor's Note ………………. the largest cattle ranch in the United States, measuring 65 miles wide and 163 miles long. .... You can smell greeley, Colorado, long before you can see it.

How far past due is Innovation on the Natural Evolutionary Curve of Development - the criteria necessary to meet the survival needs of our evolving global population?
It is not like we have to re-invent the wheel to solve our current deadly global dilemma. We just need to update our current energy base to that which was already discovered in the 1940s and 1960s on a need to know basis.
Dissolving the limitations of a mind set:
Common sense tells us what is currently being created is NOT Innovation – unless you are an ostrich: globalization of poverty – transportation nightmares – dodging nature’s deadly wrath (reaction responses), to our ecological imbalanced footprints, including global warming, etc., etc. - Can we afford to go any further backwards and survive the future?

“Pure profit” motto was accepted as the only life support necessity, ignoring ENERGY evolution which incorporates human values with sustainable, unimagined, prosperity for ALL.
MSN: UN's dire new climate change report: 'We're all sitting ducks'
A report said 'things are worse than we had predicted' in 2007 & global warming may spiral 'out of control.' The White House warned inaction would be 'catastrophic.'
CBS March 31, 2014 America's retirement system is breaking downMillions of people have no money set aside for their later years, while even responsible savers are falling behind read more “They are casualties of broad economic, social and other forces, from high unemployment, stagnant income and spiraling health care costs to eroding labor protections and rising income inequality. Behind these currents, as always, are political choices we make as a nation, along with the deep-pocketed special interests that steer public policy in ways that may not align with the common good”.

Stepping back from the colossal influx, bombardment, of business’s “big ideas”, “innovation”, “active ingredients necessary for sustaining continuous innovation”, “using the power of certainty to drive growth in an uncertain world”, etc., etc., (from the experts) ............................we must ask, with all this novel input:
WHO THEN, IS CREATING THE COLLECTIVE, WORLDWIDE OUTPUT?
Is there a total disconnect, breakdown between “innovation”, “creativity” inputs, and the collective summation of output?
I concur, the eventual total destruction of all life IS a “BIG IDEA”, but positively is NOT “INNOVATION”
Business Projection Analysis Training for Dummies
What obvious ingredients, so necessary to sustain life, progress and growth are completely and totally ignored in the present economic models of ego, greed, power and growth at all costs? Where to “hell on earth” are these “experts” in their tiny reality box taking us? Blind to the absolutely insane, obscene worldwide wealth distribution and stagnant energy base?
A mind-boggling statistic about Wall Street bonusesAt $26.7 billion last year, they were almost twice what all of America's minimum-wage workers combined were paid. March 17 5:30 AM http://www.cbsnews.com/news/a-mind-boggling-statistic-about-wall-street-bonuses
And how can such an obvious deficit as a stagnant energy base - the CAUSE of the collective outcomes worldwide - be completely missed?
Common sense today tells us advanced, evolutionary, energy concepts would also bestow us with glaringly obvious “wisdom” options (science based moral & survival fibers) alerting us to the “uses”, the “sustainable, prosperous collective outcomes”, towards which our creations shall be put.
To date, big ideas and innovation inputs are giving us unsustainable outputs, a complete disconnect from the perceived reality we ‘think’ we are creating in the tiny isolated, ivory box of expertise. Profit, the bottom line, stands alone, the sole criteria for ‘truth’, ‘justice’, ‘righteousness’, ‘the Way’, with nary a consideration to the values required to sustain life itself.
Growth At All CostsThe predicament of industrial civilization. John Greer, 16 March 2014
LOUIS HELBIG To understand the predicament of industrial civilization, it’s not enough to grasp the outward shape of the crisis of our time: the looting of a finite planet’s stock of resources, the destabilization of the global climate, the breathtaking cluelessness with which politicians, pundits, and ordinary citizens alike insist that the only way we can get out of this mess involves doing even more of the same things that got us into it in the first place, and the rest of it. Follow the roots of our predicament down into the soil that feeds them, and you’ll find yourself in a murky realm of unspoken narratives and unacknowledged desires—the “mind-forg’d manacles,” as Blake called them, that keep most of us shackled in place as the great rumbling vehicle of global industrial society accelerates down the slope of its decline and fall.
