Antimatter is exciting stuff, combustible and incredibly dangerous – a bit like nuclear that way – and one wouldn’t be advised to use it as fuel source, except that everyone invariably does. In science fiction. So, a bit like nuclear that way. The same stuff doesn’t tend to be nearly as inspiring in the cold, harsh clinical light of theoretical science. But that doesn’t mean the reality, which tends to give official science a wide berth, isn’t less than scintillating. Physics tells us antimatter is made up of antiparticles of reversed charge, parity and time. It will tell you, if

The Appliance of Science

Science, or science-fiction in many cases, as much of what we’re told is bunkum, even as those who tell it thumb a superior nose at the alt- or unproven (by their weights and measures) field, is perhaps the most fertile “authoritative” ground for the obfuscation of the truth. Well, that and official history. It sells us ideas as germs, whether or not they have any substance, in order to perforate an already prescribed paradigm – are we living in a simulation? Is the multiverse real? – while submerging us in inconceivable quantities of nonsense, both in terms of our physical
