In some experiments of a complex physical mathematical system, we found some symmetry phenomenon, very similar as symmetry breaking phenomenon, say, as translatable sysmmetry etc. These symmetry (breaking) phenomenon occurs in most of the parts of the system or some parts of the system.Factually it is a very complex physical mathematical system. And we know the total entropy of it is decreasing. Then in the experiment we found some symmetry phenomenon, say, translatable symmetry, very similar to, or at least a little similar to the process of water(or silica) freezing into ice(or glass) where symmetry breaking is occuring. Can you say symmetry breaking is occuring in this system? You can think it as a voting. Do you support or deny it is occuring? Or give a probability that you think it is occuring. Thanks in advance!
In summary, we have the following known clues:
- A very complex physical mathematical system
- The total entropy is decreasing
- Found some, say translatable symmetry phenomenon in some(or most) parts of the system
- Some profound structures seem to have formed
Do you think(or guess) the symmetry breaking is occuring in this system or not? As for us, we believe the phenomenon is, at least, a little similar to the process of water(silica) freezing into ice(or glass). Do you support or deny SB is occuring? Please give us your opinion. Or you can also give a probability you think SB is occuring.
It may sounds ghastly. But human beings especially physicits think analogously. Just because light is a kind of wave, physicits tried for centires to seek for the media Ether until the Michelson-Morley experiment. And this perhaps may serve as a counter example.
