Consider two cases: First Case ( pages 4-20 ): Our Universe: Is it Stable ? Consensus = NO (only metastable) Individual = YES Second Case ( pages 21-27 ): Dark Energy and Dark Matter Consensus = Unknown Individual = Known Segal Conformal Structure This paper is a brief description of interactions between Consensus and Individual in each of those two cases. Since I, the author, have been directly involved, you should read this paper bearing in mind possible bias in my point of view that might also be present in this paper. Bearing that in mind, you should decide for yourself the answer to the question posed in the title of this paper. In each case: Consensus = the Physics Establishment including: Fermilab, CDF, and D0 Collaborations (pages 8-14); the Cornell arXiv (pages 13; 21-22); CERN CDS (pages 14; 22); LHC, ATLAS, and CMS Collaborations (pages 15-20); the Princeton Institute for Advanced Study (page 20); and the Simons Center for Geometry and Physics (page 20) and Individual = I, a Georgia lawyer with a 1963 AB in math from Princeton and some physics study at Georgia Tech with David Finkelstein as adviser, but, having at age 50 failed the Fall 1991 Georgia Tech Comprehensive Exam ( a 3-day closed book exam ), I have no physics degree. Version 2 (v2) adds correct viXra number and 2 pages of details about Fermilab data.
