Can I see a use for the quarks? Absolutely. Imagine fast processors. REALLY FAST processors.

I can’t wait to see what they’ll discover next.  John Ellis’ lecture got me excited for the future of particle physics again.  I always believed there’d be “more more” but then you see all the media articles and science fans going, “We’re almost finished”, which to me seems rather unlikely.

The short lifetime of the top quark for example, if it becomes a manipulateable thing, could be used as a part of the process.  Its lifespan’s shortness would be a benefit, perhaps as a sort of timing mechanism.  I don”t know.  What seems so short today might seem like eons to a future tech we haven’t come close to yet.
