Neil Degrasse Tyson and Brian Cox Just Explained Why the Large Hadron Collider Disproves the Existence of Ghosts

May be you are a believer of ghosts but this study shows something different. According to Recent polls it has been found that 52 percent of people in the UK and 42 percent of Americans believe in ghosts. It is a huge percentage keeping in mind that no one has ever come up with a certain proof about the existence of ghosts. British theoretical physicist Brian Cox recently explained this dramatic scene drop, when he said there is no room in Standard Model of Physics for a substance that carry our information after death, and yet go undetected in the Large Hardon Collider.

Cox, from the University of Manchester on the BBC's show The Infinite Monkey Cage said: "If we want some sort of pattern that carries information about our living cells to persist, then we must specify precisely what medium carries that pattern, and how it interacts with the matter particles out of which our bodies are made. We must, in other words, invent an extension to the Standard Model of Particle Physics that has escaped detection at the Large Hadron Collider. That's almost inconceivable at the energy scales typical of the particle interactions in our bodies."

It's become clearly understandable that the Standard Model of Physics is an incomplete theory, with several gaps that physicists have been trying to patch up for decades.

But Cox doesn’t believe that the existence of ghosts doesn't fall within the 'known unknowns' of the Standard Model.

Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, who was also on the show, replied, "If I understand what you just declared, you just asserted that CERN, the European Centre for Nuclear Research, disproved the existence of ghosts."

"Yes," said Cox.

He said, problem came in with this belief, as it directly opposes the one of the most thoroughly verified and fundamental law of the Universe we have - the second law of thermodynamics. The second law of thermodynamics states that the total entropy of an isolated system can only increase over time or it can remain constant in ideal cases where the system is in a steady state (equilibrium) or undergoing a reversible process. The increase in entropy accounts for the irreversibility of natural processes, and the asymmetry between future and past.

Entropy is a degree of the disorder within an isolated system, and the second law of thermodynamics states that as usable energy is lost, disorder increases and without extra energy being put into a system, that progression towards disorder can never be reversed.

It basically explains the idea that you cannot get back all the energy you put in whether it is a machine or Universe. The principle can be used to explain why time always moves forwards, why there's a past, future, and present, because it would lower the Universe's entropy.

Now we’ll see that how it does apply on ghosts?

Ghosts can't be made of matter, but instead of energy, as we can't touch and interact with them, it is impossible for them to maintain their existence for any significant period of time, because energy is necessarily lost within every system according to the law of thermodynamics.

The second approval comes from the Large Hadron Collider, because while there are things about the Universe we still can't find using this huge particle accelerator, what we can see very well is the way energy drives our cells' information.

Cox said: "I would say if there's some kind of substance that's driving our bodies, making my arms move and legs move, then it must interact with the particles out of which our bodies are made, and seeing as we've made high precision measurements of the ways that particles interact, then my assertion is that there can be no such thing as an energy source that's driving our bodies."

DeGrasse Tyson added: "In that moment, there's a mystery, and it's kind of fun, and that allows me to understand, and even embrace, the urge that people have to want there to be this deep mystery, such as ghosts of ancestors. I have a soft spot for what that psychological state is, because I've felt that intermittently, except I kept exploring and getting the answer."

Like many people, has experienced "haunting experiences" in the past, he's yet to really find a phenomenon that's challenged his complete knowledge of physics, math, and astrophysics.
