Matter that moves faster than light found!

Wisdom Quarterly
Photons (light) are far from ultimate materiality. But how about neutrinos or quanta? There exist subatomic particles Buddhism refers to as kalapas. Name-and-form (nama-rupa) are intimately related, with the more subtle mind ("name") taking precedence.

In Buddhist physics -- gone into great detail in the Abhidharma ("Higher-Teaching"), one of the three divisions of the Buddha's teachings (Dharma), "ultimate particles" are referred to as kalapas.

Those able to see them (as a function of absorption- and insight-meditation called jhana- and vipassana-bhavana) consistently refrain from calling them "atoms."

It's not that Einstein was wrong; it's that we are not told about everything he found. Tesla and he fashioned a unified field theory just before he passed away. The government got those notes and equations. The true story is novelized by Sean David Morton in Sands of Time.

Our modern subatomic theory is wrong. And the next theory (string, quantum, torsion, etc.) is likely to be wrong as well. Why?

Public science does not yield ultimate truth. What happens behind the closed doors of the military-industrial complex is another story altogether. As far as what the public is told or college students taught, it is always a game of catch up with allegiance to Einstein at all costs.

How in the world could a meditator ever know and see subatomic particles? The answer is simple. Mind (cittas) arises faster than materiality (kalapas).

Both are incredibly fast, but by watching ultimate-matter (rupa-kalapas) with "higher mind" (adhicitta), which is purified by right-concentration (samma-samadhi, defined by the Buddha as mastery of the first four absorptions), it becomes possible to record these particles-of-perception and subsequently review them. How? Just as one might record an event with a high speed camera and then review it at normal speed.

Whether or not anyone considers this a satisfying explanation, it is not a meditation "theory." It happens. Wisdom Quarterly: American Buddhist Journal is well aware of people who can do it. Some even say it is necessary to do to systematically attain enlightenment in this very life. Why? The mind/heart stops clinging when it knows-and-sees that everything (mentally and materially) is radically impermanent, arising and passing away almost instantaneously.
  • It is not wise to debate it when it is possible to practice it and see for oneself. Seeing is believing, whereas our thinking is deceiving. Einstein did not think, as we popularly imagine. Few mathematicians or artists do. (Eckhart Tolle, a joyful unitarian with Buddhist leanings) explains this as "presence," or thought-free awareness and inspiration, being in the now after one has struggled by rational means.
Einstein saw/intuited the big picture in an instant and developed the math to make sense of it: "The intuitive mind is a sacred gift, and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift" - Albert Einstein.

Subatomic neutrino tracks: detecting travel faster than light (Dan Mccoy/Corbis)

Neutrinos Travel Faster Than Light
Adrian Cho (, Sept. 22, 2011)
Fat lady singing? The OPERA particle detector may have spotted neutrinos traveling faster than light, which would bring down the curtain on special relativity as an exact theory. If it's true, it will mark the biggest discovery in physics in the past half-century: Elusive, nearly massless, subatomic particles called neutrinos appear to travel just faster than light, a team of physicists in Europe reports. If so, the observation would wreck Einstein's theory of special relativity, which demands that nothing can travel faster than light. In fact, the result would be so revolutionary that it's sure to be met with skepticism all over the world. "I suspect that the bulk of the scientific community will not take this as a definitive result unless it can be reproduced by at least one and preferably several experiments," says V. Alan Kostelecky, a theorist at Indiana University, Bloomington. He adds, however, "I'd be delighted if it were true." More
  • Faster-than-light particles found, scientists claim: Particle physicists detect neutrinos traveling faster than light, a feat forbidden by Einstein's theory of special relativity. It is a concept that forms a cornerstone of our understanding of the universe and the concept of time -- nothing can travel faster than the speed of light. But now it seems that researchers working in one of the world's largest physics laboratories, under a mountain in central Italy, have recorded particles traveling at a speed that is supposedly forbidden by Einstein's theory of special relativity.
Neutrinos are "faster than light": (WND) Recent tests have revealed that a neutrino beam from a CERN lab in Geneva, Switzerland, to the 454 miles remote INFN Gran Sasso lab in Italy seemed to travel 0.0025 percent faster through earth than the speed of light in a vacuum. Some undisputed pillars of classical physics will completely totter if this experiment turns out...
