      There is no undeniable proof that anything at all exists.

          Yes, science only models nature. It’s not a blueprint of reality.

          All you know that exists is your senses, everything existing means it has an effect on your senses. Doesnt have to be direct, reading about antiparticles on a book is an effect on your sense of sight

      Anon, most of "science", that is our attempt at making sense of everything around us, is a speculation.

        Jokes aside, your guys realistic take on science is very refreshing. Just dropped by here for the funny horse pic and was pleasantly surprised. The only thing you can truly know for certain is that you exist. And even that’s a bit iffy.

              It’s very different saying
              >There’s stuff we don’t know
              From what you said in your post
              >The only thing you can truly know for certain is that you exist. And even that’s a bit iffy.
              For example, I don’t need to doubt my own existence as I don’t need to doubt yours
              I don’t need to doubt that objects fall towards the Earth, the Earth orbits the Sun, or that sunlight warms and illuminates
              Am I nitpicking? Maybe, but that’s because you should have worded your argument better, if that wasn’t your intention

            I don’t know. But it seems that the whole "everything is just an illusion" thing
            is only something that the anti-solipsists carry around as one of their illusions.

      why is it believed that there should have been as much matter as antimatter in the begining and that therefore nothing should exist?
      why should it be symmetrical?

        Because it’s a convinction of ours everything should be highly isotropic, and when not, there should be a clear reason for that

        We’ve observed antimatter-matter annihilation events in particle accelerators, and observed the difference from positrons and electrons in cosmic rays

            Bullshit aside, I don’t really know how particle accelerators work. I guess I just trust the people who opeate them.
            I’m sure the answer can be found easily enough with wikipediaor google.

            With detectors, and it really depends on what you are trying to measure.
            The first detectors for radioactivity were photographic cameras. In fact radioactivity was discovered almost as soon as cameras were invented in the early 19th century. Dont know why people credit Rutherford when it was his father that witnessed radioactivity 50 years before, as part of a committee.

                In general i dont know, i only know of detectors for photons and electrons and alpha particles, these were all detected with photographic plates.
                Theres other types of detectors like scintillating crystals and cloud chambers but i really dunno about how they work.
                I think neutrinos were first detected indirectly due to momentum conservation, in a nuclear reaction there were ejected electrons and photons or something and the momentum didnt add up.

      no, but its not as simple as "we made it up so out shit makes sene". Experiments work really well with this model, which requires this dark matter thing. There is predictive value in this outrageous assumption, its not just "here be dragons".

        When a particle comes into contact with its anti-particle they annihilate each other and turn into energy (photons) but a positron would not annihilate if it hit say a proton.

            QED and its only a probable event its also possible for a photon to spontaneously disappear and create a positron-electron pair

      It’s not like anti-matter is from the evil dimension. A positron is "matter" just as much as an electron is. A particle and its antiparticle exists, for many particles.

      Try using a KDK integrator combined with a Hamiltonian splitter (avoid BH entanglement). Works for me!
