Maybe some of you are familiar with the term 'Circuit Training'. It refers to a programme of physical activities that work each section of our bodies individually. When one circuit of the programme is done, either through coercion or (free) will, we begin the first exercise again for the next circuit. In order to probe the fundamental structure of the universe, physicists have implemented a sophisticated circuit training for the basic constituents of matter: accelerators boost beams of particles to high energies before the beams are made to collide with each other. Detectors observe and record the results of these collisions. We assume that those particles follow the instructions of physicists with a mixture of obedience and free will…
