Bio

I am a 21 year old who is a student of everything. I desire to learn and understand all whether it be an idea, a concept, or another human being. On of my favorite emotions that I am capable of feeling is Inspiration. It is something I yearn for day in and day out, yet I find it everyday.

An idea worth spreading

I have an amazing idea that I believe will change the course of the world but I have found difficulty organizing my thoughts due to the immense amount of research required and the fact that I havent found anyone trying to prove what I want to prove.

I'm passionate about

Making the world a better place, for everyone. Whether it be through technology, science, entertainment, politics, etc. I am passionate about understanding the past and molding the future.

Talk to me about

EVERYTHING

People don't know I'm good at

Public speaking and being a leader

My TED story

I have none, though one day it would be a dream come true to attend a conference :)

A particle that explains WHY to everything.
You are assuming I claim to be a prolific scientist that assumes himself clever for posting on a public forum. Neither are true. What's wrong with me posting an idea? I'm pretty sure TED was created because of ideas. Not all ideas are thorough and sorry this doesn't meet your standards and sorry for "insulting" real scientists. And by sorry I mean I'm not sorry.

A particle that explains WHY to everything.
One last example on the strength of the Central WHY. I am NOT a religious person and I have NEVER read the Bible. Please keep that in mind. I know some basics, but I am about to get really basic. So there was this guy that you may know. His name was Jesus Christ. I'm sure you have heard of him. Anyway, he had a WHY. No, his WHY was not that he wanted to spread Christianity and force people to live under certain rules. (which sadly, is what some churches have become.) His WHY was the Central WHY. "To make the world a better place for EVERYONE" But didn't I say everyone has that WHY? Yes, I did. What makes Jesus different is that he took that WHY out of his subconscious and into his consciousness and made it his life goal to spread that idea to EVERYONE. Imagine, 2000 years ago when people were killing each other for sport or because they were foreign or "different" I bet if Jesus saw a Chinese person during his life we would have treated them with love and respect. Correct me if I'm wrong but I believe Jesus died for ALL of OUR sins. Hmmm if that doesn't connect to the Central WHY then I don't know what does. To this day people are still attracted/connected to Jesus because they believe in the same WHY. I have a lot more info that relates to the WHY particle but I would like some feedback on what I have so far so I do not get too far ahead of myself. Thank you for taking the time to read this

"WHY does a pencil exist?" Does/Can it make the world a better place for everyone? Yes because it provides humans a way to write down ideas and connect thoughts. "Why is McDonalds so successful? Does/Can it make the world a better place for everyone? Yes because it provides a service that makes food easily accessible to the masses at a low cost. (Everyone needs to eat) "WHY has the automobile industry been so successful?" Does/Can it make the world a better place for everyone? Yes because it provides everyone with the opportunity to travel large distances in a much shorter time in order to transport goods, connect with people in different cities, provide paramedics, fireman, and policemen better chances to save lives and assist others. The WHYs go on and on and on and on...... Billions of people were attracted to each one of those ideas because it connected very aggressively with the Central WHY. Now lets look at something that has a weak connection. If we think about murder, I assume that 99% of the world's population would not do it, consciously or subconsciously. WHY? Well we can clearly see that there is an issue when you try to connect it back to the Central WHY. If you kill someone, ANYONE, you do not make the world a better place for EVERYONE. Some may say, "Well what about Osama?" Good question, lets talk about it. In a best case scenario, me killing Osama would make the world a better place for everyone minus 1 person, Osama (duh). That is not the case though. If it were, then what would stop any member of Al Qaeda from killing him if it meant a better world for everyone? Here is what happened. Osama promised his people that he would make the world better for them, but not everybody. (Certainly not America) Of course those who he promised a better life were ATTRACTED to him. His WHY was enough to attract others who wanted to believe what he believed. Where he failed is he did not want a better world for EVERYONE. America WHY > Al Qaeda WHY.

A particle that explains WHY to everything.
If you are still following, I am about to get to my favorite part. Before I do I want to make clear of what I have already said. - Common WHY particles bond and form a larger mass which therefore means it is subject to a greater gravitational pull. - WHY particles come from our consciousness but most come from our subconscious -ALL WHY particles are connected (some connections are stronger than others) Understanding these led me to ask myself a question. What WHY has the biggest mass and strongest attraction? I came up with a concept called the "Central Why" This WHY is what EVERY other WHY particle is somehow connected to. You can trace ANY WHY back to this one. So what WHY can possibly do this? I am not 100% positive to be honest but I found a REALLY good one. Open your mind for this one. Ready? "To make the world a better place, for everyone" Some of you can stop reading right there because it clicks. Let me explain to those who it did not click for. The idea of the "Central WHY" is that anything and everything can connect back to it. Remember, a WHY is most of the time subconscious so we do not even know that we are using it sometimes. Now to test it you would have to test any why and somehow connect it back to the Central Why. Let me throw out a couple.....

Why? (Wright brothers) (#1) "Because we want to change the course of the world" Why? (Langley) (#2) "Because I want to be rich and famous" Now imagine these two ideas/reasons as identical looking particles but you can see the difference in their substance. Which particle would YOU be attracted to? These two particles are both reasons why (insert any name here) wants to fly. But flight only manifested through particle #1. Why? I believe that particle #1 has a stronger gravitational pull. Yes, I said gravitational. As in, its subject to the law of gravity. As most of you know, the force of gravity is related to an object's mass. The more mass an object has, the stronger the force of gravity. The way a WHY particle would gain more mass is by having other exact particles attract to it. There are more people who "want to change the course of the world" than there are people who want "Langley to be rich and famous." Common sense I would think. There is NEVER only one reason WHY people do things. Also all the WHYs are connected to each other (again, by gravity) I believe humans have about a billion WHYs, but we are only aware of a handful. The rest lie in our subconscious. What's great is that you can move these WHYs into your consciousness. A very small example of this would be instead of you just going through the motions of tying your shoe, you would consciously think, "Why am I tying my shoe?" Then go on and think, "Well I want to tie my shoes BECAUSE I want them to be tight and not fall off while I am walking" Or, "I do not want to trip over my laces" You do not consciously think either of these while you tie your show but subconsciously, you do.

This is what I wrote previously but it was deleted by the site for vagueness. I understand I am not using a method people would prefer, but it is an idea that I would like feedback on.... Inspired by Simon Sinek's talk, especially where he mentions that there is biological basis, I began trying to make an even stronger bond between the "Golden Circles" and applying it to everything I could think of. I came up with an idea that is very hard for me to explain because I believe it covers EVERYTHING. What I have come up with so far is a model of what I like to call the "WHY particle." (Maybe the "Idea Particle" will work better) Imagine the structure of an atom. It has a nucleus and electrons that orbit it. Here is where you will need some imagination and I guess, faith. Imagine the nucleus is now a representation of "Why". Stick with me. Here is where I have difficulty explaining what I see. This representation of "WHY" applies to any and all forms of the QUESTION why. Using the example in Sinek's talk, "WHY were the Wright brothers able to fly?" Why questions are answered starting with the word "Because..." Back to the example. The Wright brothers were able to fly BECAUSE they created a model that was able to support their weight, create propulsion, and generate lift. Right? WRONG. I just answered HOW they were able to, not WHY. As stated in the video the reason the WHY the Wright brothers were able to fly is BECAUSE they believed it would change the course of the world. (I'll refute this later but this example still helps my theory) Now look at Langley, his WHY is because he wanted to make a profit and become famous. I am going to switch these examples to first person.

I haven't done anything like particle accelerators. I just have a theory based on the possible existence of the particle. So far I have not found anything that disproves its existence. It is a lot more extensive than what I originally posted. I need assistance to adequately organize and discuss my idea
