As 'quasi particles' those newly discovered weyl fermions only exist as specific wave points in a specific material. In that sense, you would not get a 'shocked' as humans are made of 'weyl-fermion-insulated material'
There is a sense in which a massive fermion can be thought of as made up from two Weyl fermions of opposite chirality. While I haven't read the paper in question (it's behind a paywall) I get the impression that the quasi-particle detected in these experiments results from electrons behaving as if they were a pair of Weyl fermions, and that the result could ...
