September 10, 2008
The events that will take place in a remote area of Switzerland during the unknown hours of September 10, 2008 may forever change the world.
Similar to the early morning darkness when the incredible destructive powers of the atom were first unleashed and what had been merely theoretical became reality, today the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) will be switched on, accelerating sub-atomic particles to nearly the speed of light before smashing them together.
The purpose of this experiment is to re-create the very moment 13 billion years ago when scientists believe a tremendous explosion known as the "big bang" created the universe.
But what if, 13 billion years ago, there was no explosion?
What if they are wrong and the big bang was none other than the hand of God or some other mystical occurrence?
Im going to be a little nervous today, sitting in the Embody and working on our latest projects, hoping that within one fell swoop we don't all get decimated.
When those two opposing beams of protons charged with approximately 7 TeVs of energy hit, and they produce the God Particle, producing mass to vector bosons, I seriously hope everything we have worked towards as humanity isn't decimated...
OK ILL ADMIT IT, IM SCARED!!
Why is this allowed to happen?
Is there someone we can all call and say "HEY WAIT!! NO!!!!!! DONT DO IT!!"
Well world, if at some point you cease to exist today, its been great.
I guess the fact that Google's picture today isn't of the Earth exploding.
That could be seen as a positive thing right?
Google would know, wouldn't they?
