‎"According to the Standard Model, the Higgs boson is the only manifestation of an invisible force field, a cosmic force field that permeates space and imbues elementary particles with mass."
According to George Lucas, the Force is "an energy field created by all living things. It surrounds us and penetrates us; it binds the galaxy together."

One of "The Scream" paintings sells for $120 million (?!) & I give you America's Most Powerful Art Dealers. Sometimes timing is sweetly serendipitous.
