Tara Shears - Antimatter: Why the anti-world matters

Antimatter, an identical, oppositely charged version of normal matter, is one of the most mysterious substances in the Universe and very little of it survives today. Tara Shears examines the progress being made towards understanding this elusive version of matter, and explains the latest results from LHCb and elsewhere.

    "Gravity acts on mass..." That statement is a bit misleading. As we know from general relativity, mass "creates" gravity through the bending of space time. In that sense, gravity is not really a force at all, but rather a side effect of objects with mass

    So why did she say every one of these units has a "Twin with an Opposite Charge", being Anti-matter. .That would mean that all of the Universe having a "Twin Opposite Charge being Anti Matter ", this would mean the Entire Cosmos would "Anilate the Entire Universe". The only reason why the negative electrons moves towards the magnet and the so called positive electron moves the other way is because their is "No Antimatter" but it is two electrons (negative) that are spinning in the opposite direction around the proton, and so when the collision occures the "Two Negative Electrons Spin off in "Curved Directions" which would mean "No Antimatter, but just the "Two Electrons". Two electrons orbiting a Helium Proton would be moving into opposite direction, for likeness would repel each other and would speed up the two opposite orbital paths. If there was "Antimatter" in the Universe, then their would be "No Universe", for the "So Called Twins Would Anilate everything" Two electrons smasging into each other causes EMF in the Earth's Magnetosphere" to create enormous energy. Two electromagnets when switched off will produce enormous Enegery. Two positive protons smashing into each other will give off enormous Gamma and X-rays. The combine energy being released would be enormous. Anti- matter , defys the existence of the Universe. So how would you be able to get "Negative Hydrogen" as two electrons would not orbit around a Negative Hydrogen, and two claim two antimatter (positive electrons" are orbiting around the Negative Hydrogen, would mean that the Sun would Anilate itself , given the Plasma Hydrogen Energy. So then what would be suspended inside the magnetic chamber. For even the Sun's Gamma Rays are bent back a 180 degrees by Magnetism of Plasma Radiation suspended in the Sun's Corona. Something dose not add up about the claim of "Anti-matter".

None of this is repeatable without access to expensive technology which only the priests have access to or understand does anyone understand the Higgs field? Or the evidence that explains the boson? anti-matter and dark energy have still to be found and yet she talks as if they have been and how many people actually understand the equations she throws about with aplomb? Again take it on faith the religion of the 21st century all very interesting but are you convinced?

    “Science fact” I am a doubter by nature. Show me an example of antimatter anywhere. Provable antimatter interaction with matter is what gives weight to this hypothesis. I can’t see “the opposite of matter” anywhere in my life, there is nothing in my world that corresponds to this type of thinking. It is more likely that the universe has no “anti”, but simply is a fluid process involving various levels of viscosity. I can’t say the name overtly, as utube will censor my statement, but T-E-S-L-A showed electric theory is not complete, the electrostatic part, electricity devoid of all magnetism) is the part of most consequence. He had observable data to back up his propositions. It is too bad the bankers who control it all decided to adopt his first adaptation of electricity, and marginalize all his concepts afterward. Antimatter is only possible through the “window” of Einstein’s relativity. Pierre Robitaille invented the MRI we use today and he shows the fallacy of relativity in a real way, his MRI tech would not be possible if relativity as given us by Einstein was true. Dr dowdye, a world renown expert cosmological science, and nasa engineer shows unequivocally the gravitational lensing used to prove Einstein’s relativity was incorrectly stated. Einstein’s theory assumes vacuum around the sun, and we know there is a plasma sheath around the sun. Then dowdye goes on to show the data collected by nasa satellites shows gravitational lensing is an incorrect assessment of the natural phenomena being described. CJ ransom crushes relativity with the equation itself. The reason this antimatter, and cern get such fantastical Ted talks, and reviews from “academia” is the simple reason that these concepts need a marketing scheme, as they make no sense. Two things that don’t have a Mathematical negative; Time and matter. They can be affected by degrees, differentials, but their is not “ negative” value that can be given these two in nature, that can only be done with math.

    I have a question. If matter and antimatter annihilate each other, how was Carl Anderson able to see the particle traverse his (liquid filled) apparatus? This would mean that a positron's perception of our world is not that much different than the space it just traveled through. There must be a lot of positrons bombarding us for one to reach Anderson's device?
