CERN: Playing With Fire?

CERN

Scientists at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) are again ready to use their Large Hadron Collider (LHC) to see what they can do or find. When used before, the so-called “God Particle” was identified. However, with world-renowned physicist Stephen Hawking, among others, warning CERN not to follow through, one wonders if CERN is playing with fire. This becomes a question of not if a scientific team can move forward with their experiments, but if they should. Recently, Dr. Stephen Hawking stated that, “The ‘God Particle’ found by CERN could destroy the universe leaving time and space collapsed.”

This seems like a pretty direct warning to the scientists at CERN pleading that they do not take their experiments further. After finding the “God Particle” by crashing proton beams together at near the speed of light, the system was deactivated to do a major overhaul-reboot. After almost three years of re-calculating their machinery, and beefing up their LHC to hold almost twice the amount of energy it could before, CERN has finally begun preliminary tests to make certain their containment fields are up to par.

In 2012, the LHC was able to hold eight teraelectron volts (TEV). In 2013, CERN was able to identify what is now known as the “Higgs boson” particle, an elementary particle that has shed light on some of the world’s long-standing secrets. With the upgrades in magnets, stronger energy beams, and tighter vacuums, the LHC will now be able to hold 13 TEV.

CERN believes that their equipment is more than capable of holding the energy that is going to be released by crashing protons together, but when entering into a field of unknowns there is no way for the people of CERN to be 100 percent certain. This is why CERN opted to take on the challenge of holding back 13 TEV, instead of taking the LHC to its current maximum of 14 TEV. This is being done so as to have more control over the possible malfunctions that could manifest themselves. By taking this delicate process step by step, CERN is taking every precautionary step possible.

While scientists now believe that “dark matter” is what comprises over 85 percent of the known Universe, dark matter is still just a hypothesis. This is because dark matter is not something that can be seen, but is detectable based on the effects seen gravitationally on visible matter and radiation, not to mention the basic structure of our Universe. “Regular” matter is what stars, planets, and other tangible matter consist of. This regular matter only comprises four percent of what makes the Universe. To put it in other words, almost all of what constitutes “reality” is still unknown to even the brightest of minds. Considering this, virtually any take on “what is reality” is a possibility. This Universe may just be a program as depicted in The Matrix Trilogy, or just one plane of existence with thousands more just beyond the veil of this physical life.

CERN’s primary goal in once again firing up their LHC is to hopefully identify what they consider to be dark matter. Dr. Mike Lamont says, “The physicists here at CERN hope that with the step up from eight TEV to 13 TEV, we will be able to explore a bit more of parameter space and that something all together brand new will show up.” Dr Lamont goes on to admit that they are dealing with a vast amount of raw power when using the LHC, and that, “Because of this we have to be very careful with it.” While scientists are anxious to see what will come of this latest LHC experiment, some are more fearful than others, such as Dr. Hawking.

Whether Dr. Hawking’s warning proves to be accurate is yet to be seen, but if there is one thing for sure it is that the possible results of the CERN research could be groundbreaking. While scientists at CERN are trying not to get their hopes up, they feel that winning a Nobel prize is not out of the question. CERN has plans to continue to upgrade their LHC for decades, testing new capabilities every few years.

    The late Carl Sagan once said, “We’ve arranged a global civilization in which most crucial elements profoundly depend on science and technology. We’ve also arranged things so that almost no one understands science and technology. We might get away with it for a while, but sooner or later this combustible mixture of ignorance and power is going to blow up in our faces.”

    The same, so-called, ‘scientists’ weren’t too worried when they ignited the first atomic bomb, over the admonishments and deep concerns that it might set of a chain reaction within our ocean of air, vaporizing it. They did it anyway. Then ‘science’ proceeded to incinerate the population centers of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, utilizing their new found discoveries, that they had, violently wrenched loose from Mother Nature.

    The ‘scientists’ had the same arrogant response when the first HAARP facility was cranked up in Alaska, 1997. Oh, don’t worry, we’re just going to tickle the belly of the ionosphere – with several giga-watts of microwave energy – just to see what happens. The worry then was, still is, that disrupting the ionosphere with such enormous blasts of energy, could allow for an irreversible, unstoppable breach of solar radiation to pour through. But, so what, we’re ‘scientists,’ we where the white lab coats, trust us.

    Now, CERN. Playing with the Earth’s old telluric current nodes; Gaia’s acupuncture points, looking for the, so-called, god particle. These blind bats can’t even tell the difference between a fart and a whirl-wind.

    Your quote from Stephen Hawking fell way short of being complete. I suppose that was to sensationalise your story. Hawking did say the God Particle could destroy the universe. In the next sentence, he said it would require a collider bigger than earth, then made a joke. He said he doubted such a collider would be funded in the current climate. I don’t believe Dr. Hawking is too worried about this deal.

      Oh good. Because if Hawking thinks we’re fine – even though we don’t truly know what we’re up against, that makes it OK? Glad your faith is so unshakeable!

        When did I say anything about Hawking’s opinion being comforting? Reread my comment — I just said he didn’t say what the article implied. I do think it’s silly to imagine we are the most advanced beings in the universe and are the first to think of colliders. I also agree it happens in nature all the time, and with a lot more velocity. But, still, my comment had nothing to do with that.

    As these brilliant, curious, and ego-maniacal men and women continue to upgrade CERN to ever more powerful machines, longer tracks, more powerful magnets – I believe they will eventually hit a point where the power they unleash cannot be stopped by merely throwing the switch to the “off” position. We already know that certain type of waves can become self-sustaining and can amplify themselves to well beyond our ability to measure the energy they contain or create in the process. How much power will need to be pumped into CERN before this point is reached. Will there be enough time between the collapse of the planet and the end of the experiment for these idiots to collect their Nobel Prizes for the destruction of a world? Or the ending of civilization as we know it? Even if they do get their dubious prizes for doing so – will there be enough time left for a quick trip to Cartier with their “honorarium checks” clutched in their hands to buy a new Pasha to wear on their way to hell? Perhaps, but somehow I doubt it.

    A brother received a word from God today. He is very angry, He plans to allow CERN to succeed, in breaching a dimensional barrier, that has been in place since the dawn of time. Their “success” will bring demonic entities, through the hole, onto the earth causing unimaginable results, spiking violence and evil to a unprecedented level. Many people will die in the days ahead. Only those that trust Jesus as Savior and Lord, applying His Blood over their lives, will be safe. This all starts during the Total Solar Eclipse, March 20/21st; prepare now.
    Get right with God, repent and take Jesus as your Savior and Lord.

    I’d feel a bit less unnerved by the postulations if CERN had been built, say, on the moon. Will they produce persistent black holes or strange matter? If they do we won’t be around long to celebrate.

    How about putting ALL of Stephen Hawking’s quotes down, instead of fear monging people?
    He said that it would take a machine larger than the size of the earth to cause a catastrophe.
