Benchmark Scores Look, it's a Ryzen on air........ What's the point?

I love being humbled by processes of which the human mind cannot comprehend. We can imagine, explain the reaction... But to wrap your head around the timescale is nuts.

Talking about mind boggling numbers and time scales, please take a look at this awesome article, aka the Proton decay (roughly translated through google)


I come back from time to time to read it again, i like the incommensurable numbers, so that i know my place and how insignificant i am :)

We should invest more on tech advancement as a species. This is good news though, one more piece of the puzzle.

The shortest duration events that can be recorded are in (ys) yoctoseconds (10^-24 aka one septillionth of a second).
Some examples:
W & Z bosons lifetime = 0.3 ys
top quark lifetime = 0.5 ys
lifespan of Hydrogen-7 = 23 ys
mean lifetime of a Higgs Boson = 156 ys

W & Z: "We live fast and die young!"
Plank time: "Hold my beer."

Software A lot.
Benchmark Scores Its fast. Enough.
The fact that the equilibrium transfer is always the same despite the number of particles is amazing, there has to be math to describe how it doesn't matter the number of protons and neutrons in the transfer.
