    riddle

    the fundamental
    trickeries
    of life imageries
    is an initiation
    to imagine
    details otherwise
    not retail
    the fondness for
    light to discontinue
    bright is promiscuous
    but the end result
    immaculate
    to reach perfection
    an element alloy
    to the naked eye is to extrapolate
    the mind must
    pretend what is seen
    is the best that is been
    or living is nor worth the scene
    keenness is mean.

    it may never try
    but when it does it sigh
    it is just that
    good
    it fly

    Answer to the Riddle: The Quark...
    FINNEGANS WAKE has a reputation for being one of the most difficult novels in the English language. Written by James Joyce over 17 years, it blends invented words with real phrases in grammar-defying constructions. The final line ends mid-sentence Ė only for you to realise that the words that should come next are the ones at the bookís beginning. Some say it is Joyceís attempt at recreating a dream. Others claim that it contains no meaning at all.

    It might seem odd, then, that a nonsense word from this most ungraspable of books should have given its name to a particle known as the building block of reality: the quark. In modern physics, a quark is what you would find if you were able to take a piece of matter and cut it in half again and again until you could cut no more.

    Quarks are as fundamental as anything can be. But they are also exceedingly weird. They have strange quantum properties known as flavour and spin. They crave each otherís company, clustering together in pairs or triplets. And they have a special sort of charge that comes not in the positive or negative variety, but in colours.

    And now, in a twist to rival that of any experimental novel, it seems quarks may not actually exist. According to tantalising new research, they may instead be an illusion, the product of quantum trickery we donít yet fully understand...
