Why are new discoveries and dialetics in the science world get reported more often in news reports than new discoveries and dialetics in the philosophical world?
>We beat nihilism
The equivalent of finding a new particle would be more like "we have discovered a new perspective on plato's cave".
the science equivalent of beating nihilism would be "we have invented FTL intergalactic travel AND found intelligent aliens that we can communicate with".
Well, for one, it can LITERALLY make anime real.
>vr doesn't count
Eventually we will have holograms like that guy from Archer and his anime girlfriend
It's not literally "finding the meaning of life".
Conclusively beating nihilism is like the most significant philosophical discovery imaginable, discovering a new particle is initially of unknown significance.
I was memeing, but you gotta admit, there's value in the ability of political and philisophical thought to point out the flaws in ideologies before the attempts to put them into practice
>For someone who hasn´t study particle physics it surley is.
Oh, so you can tell me what exactly a new particle would mean for science before discovering, even before knowing the nature of that particle?
I'm genuinely curious how that works, can you elaborate?
In particle physics, and in most of modern physics, the theoretical framewrok is set before the experiment. The neutrino is an example as it was predicted to fit the model of the beta decay wich is of extreme importance for the formation of stable nuclei. It was discoverd later adding to the foundation of the standard model.
Most experiments usually are like this (more in our modern wordl), and little experiments are actually paradigm changers like the Michelson and Morley experiment or what came from the Photoelectric effect because you need really groundbreaking evidence to bring whole foundations down. I may get some people triggered by this but in some sense the theory surpased the experiments because we have really well established foundations from were we can play and the mathematical knowledge is even at a higher level. So we predict different possibilites and most of the times it has been showned to fit the theory amd add in many other things.
