In 1925, Einstein went on a walk with a young student named
Esther Salaman. As they wandered, he shared his core guiding
intellectual principle:
"I want to know how God created this world.
I'm not interested in this or that phenomenon, in the spectrum
of this or that element.
I want to know His thoughts; the rest are just details."

Finding a smaller building block will be difficult, because
that requires a more powerful particle accelerator than
humans have ever built.
The time horizon for a new accelerator facility coming on line
is several decades and that facility will provide only a relatively
modest incremental improvement over existing capabilities.
So, scientists must instead speculate on what a smaller building
block might look like.

''The goal is to find a single building block and a single force
that could explain the matter and motion of the universe.''

''Finding a smaller building block will be difficult,
because that requires a more powerful particle accelerator
than humans have ever built. . . .
. . . So, scientists must instead speculate on what
a smaller building block might look like.''

What if a smallest building block of the Universe
might look like the well-known Quantum of Light ?
#
‘' All these fifty years of conscious brooding have brought me
nearer to the answer to the question, 'What are light quanta?'
Nowadays every Tom, Dick and Harry thinks he knows it,
but he is mistaken. '' / Einstein /
