In the previous post I talked about the discovery of gimmel, the third form of reality that is neither matter nor energy. In this post, I expand on the significance of the finding of gimmel.
I submit to you that the discovery of gimmel is far more important than the discovery of evidence of the Higgs boson and the accompanying Higgs Field, because understanding the reality of gimmel has practical application to human problems. So far as I can tell, the discovery of the Higgs boson has no practical application.
All the discovery of traces of the Higgs boson does is confirm the consistency of the current particle theory. Finding the Higgs boson simply confirms the mathematical consistency of particle theory, it doesn’t reveal anything new about reality. So far as I can tell, the discovery has no practical application.
Just what is the Higgs boson? Particle physicists explain it like this:
"All elementary particles get their masses from their interactions with the Higgs field, kind of like being 'slowed down' by passing through a thick syrup," a physicist at Towson University in Maryland says.

Some particles have a harder time moving through the Higgs field than others, and as a result, they have more mass. Why are certain particles, like the top quark, given thousands of times more mass by the Higgs field than less massive particles, like as electrons and neutrinos? No one knows. "Theorists have been searching for some way to actually predict masses from first principles. No convincing theory has yet emerged," said John Gunion, a professor of physics at the University of California, Davis.

Particle physicists think that, similar to the way photons are related to the electromagnetic field, the Higgs particle may be related to a Higgs field. They theorize that particles moving through the Higgs field disrupt the field by exchanging virtual Higgs particles with it. They postulate that a detectable Higgs particle surfaces when the field is disturbed by the impact of a moving particle. Detecting a Higgs boson is how physicists feel they can be sure the Higgs field exists. "You have to get enough energy to excite the field so that it looks like a particle to us. Otherwise we don't know the field is there," particle physicist Craig Blocker of Brandeis University tells us.

The discovery of gimmel tells us much more: It explains quantum physics in a much more comprehensive way: Stable particles cannot exist without gimmel, which means that, consistent with quantum experimental observations like the double-slit and delayed-choice experiments, particles do not exist until we consciously draw the distinctions that allow us to measure them.

Just what is gimmel? Unlike the Higgs boson, gimmel is not just another name for something we already know about, Gimmel is what mass-less gluons, bosons and dark matter/energy are made of. Gimmel is the essence of life and the flow of purpose and meaning from the infinite to the finite. Gimmel is most abundant in the elements that support life. See the tables of calculations in the series of posts on ‘Putting Consciousness into the Equations’, especially Parts 18 and 20.
The discovery of gimmel in every stable particle making up the physical universe tells us much more than why particles have mass, it opens the door to a deeper understanding of space and time in relation to mass and energy.
Einstein was on the right track when he observed in a note to the fifteenth edition of his book on relativity that space is not something to which one can ascribe a separate existence apart from the objects of physical reality. With the discovery of gimmel, quantum physics is telling us something profound about both space and time: They do not exist as separate ‘things’.
The images conjured up from quantum sensations in our brains of objects and their motions are inseparably bound up with consciousness. Without the direct involvement of consciousness as TRUE units of gimmel, there would be no matter and energy interacting in space-time, in fact, no material universe!
With the discovery of gimmel, we echo the statements of Planck and Einstein: “There is no matter as such”, and “There is no space as such”, and expand them:
There is no matter and energy, no space and time, without consciousness

In up-coming posts, I will explain what space and time are in the new paradigm.
