Details (The Devil theme)

Howard pushed the lever forward and listened to the hum of the particle accelerator as the building blocks of the universe were smashed to pieces and became glorious patterns on his monitors.

Behind him, the angel’s wings shifted uneasily.

“What is that?” he said, pointing to the monitor.

“That’s a Higgs Boson. We call it the God Particle.”

“Hmmm,” mused the angel. “Go lower.”

“Lower? There is no ‘lower’. That’s it.”

“No, there is a lower,” said the angel. “I’ve looked everywhere else. Literally. That’s where he’s hiding.”

“Who?”

“The Devil,” said the angel. “Everyone says he’s in the details.”
