Waves in an Impossible Sea

Chapter 13 — Ordinary Fields


Note 3: Discovery of neutrinos
  • Quote: By discovering the compression field and the leaning field, and perhaps others, and by studying how these fields behave and how they interact, you could begin to learn a great deal about their medium—for instance, that it’s a three-dimensional solid.
  • Endnote: You might even discover these obscure fields by accident. For instance, you might observe processes that seemingly cause energy to disappear. That energy must have gone somewhere, and some poking around might reveal that it has been carried off by waves in a previously unknown field. Neutrino fields were discovered in much this way.
  • Discussion (coming soon, but for now, a nice history of neutrinos’ first appearance in particle physics, and beyond, can be found here.)
