Philosophy Wire: Majorana, Being, One

6a00d8341bf7f753ef01676533b149970b-500wiPhilosophy Wire by Spiros Kakos [2012-12-23]: One of the biggest discoveries of 2012 was the discovery of the mysterious Majorana fermion, which was detected in a nanowire according to Dutch nanoscientist Leo Kouwenhoven. [source: 1, 2] These fermions are in the verge of matter and anti-matter: they are the anti-particles of them selves. As mysterious as the physicist who predicted their existence (Majorana disappeared during a boat trip leaving no trace at 1938), these particles may actually be the key to our understanding of the cosmos. Opposites being One. The essence of Being.
