Happy Birthday!!! Happy New Year's. One thing I come away with is that in theoretical physics, anomalies point to the possibility, the suggestion of something beyond the standard model.
Several points stay with me: leptoquarks are hypothetical, and yet important to understanding what may exist beyond the standard model. They must decay almost instantly,as soon as they are created, "or cosmology would be in big trouble". And, it is easier to create pairs of leptoquarks than single leptoquarks, because the strong force is used to create pairs and that naturally creates more than the weak force would.
Finally, everything is dependent on data. The more accurate the data, the more reliable the predictions. Data today is much more predictable than it was in the 90s.
I think, for a single class in physics I have learned a lot, more than I mention here. Slowly I am filling in critical gaps. A great deal may be beyond me, but overall I think I'm getting 'it'--the thrust of your work, the motivation behind and direction of theoretical physics.
It's really amazing that we have you here on Hive. You open the universe to us.
I hope you have had a wonderful birthday, @lemouth.
