Antimatter is a 20th Century discovery which found that particles of matter have a corresponding “anti-particle”. Yet the world that we know is balanced in favour of matter, especially here on Earth. The goal of projects like the Large Hadron Collider at CERN is to research antimatter and its important role in creating The Big Bang.
And that made me think about how we have two worlds with ourselves – the thoughts in our mind (which I will call antimatter), and the things we make (matter). Also for every song I write (matter), there are piles of antimatter that never made the cut, or were really just studies that helped me build the finished song.
While the science of antimatter is not that simple to understand, I like the gist of it when I think of all those ideas that never see the light of the day. They are part of the process though.
