Digital vs. Analogue = Quantum vs. Relativity

Let us ask ourselves first: what is a principle that unifies digital record (CD record) with old analogue LP record? Which formula, which principle unifies “old” analogue world with “new” digital world? If there is a wave inscribed in an analogue LP that resembles to a wave of sound, so that we “understand” the transition from the LP via needle through wires and amplifiers to speakers, that all play with the wave in one or another way; what is inscribed in CD that could be linked to a wave function that is so close to a sound that both finally produce? Is there a so called “god particle” that explains both? That particle should be placed on hierarchically higher level that both of these that are explained. This “god particle” should explain common denominator of both. What could it be?
Yes, you are right. I am talking about “god particle”, Higgs boson, that is believed to unify quantum mechanic with relativity theory, quantum (digital) particles with “old fashioned” analogue gravity. It is believed that Higgs as a particle “brings” gravity, so it is a kind of “god particle” since it was “one of first” if not the first particle after the Big Bang – and since “Big Bang” somehow represents “God” himself (at least to some, haha), this unifying particle is understood as “god particle”.
Let me give a simple answer, and a simple negation of the possibility that anything explains singularity. Yes. In both cases, digital vs. analogue and quantum vs. relativity there is one singularity, that unifies, but as any singularity, can not be explained. The god particle that unifies CD with LP is music! No wonder that music was the highest philosophical property for Plato (and not only for him)? I do not want to say that there was only music in the moment of Big Bang and nothing else. What I want to say is, that for every duality of physical world there is one singularity that can not be explained by the language of former two. Like there is singularity that unifies mind and body. And all this was explained already, by buddhist philosophy, for example with the concept of mindfulness (which is in fact a buddhist notion of contemporary science singularity that is found in black holes or within Big Bang).
Even better: let us take in account “Bounce theory” which states that the world that we live in was not started by big bang but that the “previous world” collapsed in singularity and bounced to a present state with inflation. You can not explain singularity in this “bouncing” Big Bang moment with the vocabulary of neither this nor previous world. And with vocabulary I mean all physics and chemistry and language and… that was and will be developed until the next big bounce.
Music can not be explained neither by digits nor with waves; consciousness (self) can not be explained neither by genes nor by memes… If anything unifying is going to be found in CERN, it will not be Higgs but something that will resemble to music.
