Hadron Collider and Time Travel

Post by SunburnedPenguin on Sat Sep 06, 2008 1:37 pm

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/earth/main.jhtml?view=DETAILS&grid=&xml=/earth/2008/09/05/scilhc105.xml

The Hadron Collider is due to be turned on this coming wednesday (date 10.09.08 - oddly!) and while I am not one of the people worried it will cause the end of the world, I am fascinated by this other article...

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/earth/main.jhtml?xml=/earth/2008/02/06/scitime106.xml

2008 could well be year zero for temperal time travel. Theoretically, if time travel is possible, we cant go back any further than when the first time machine is created - and this Hadron Collider could be, according to many, the first time machine. Bizarre. Just.....bizarre.

Holy crap, that is this week?! I am actually a little freaked out by it because it could potentially kill us all. In fact, I don't understand how they would be granted permission to even turn it on seeing as how they have no freaking clue what is going to happen. Do you know what time they are turning it on? I would like to be a little drunk around that time just incase it is the end.

Im not sure....but I will be getting drunk aswell, just in case like Very Happy

Report back thursday morning and i'm sure we will all still be here! (Remembering the theory that quantum particles can be altered by the act of observation, tie it in with the idea of positve thinking....if we believe we will stil be here then we will!)

Yeah, Jax, keep telling yourself that.... when we are all sucked into a black hole and are floating around dead in space somewhere I will be sure to look you up and say "I told you so." Hey, maybe we will all get transported to the island?!

Today's the day! For those of us in the USA, they are turning it on while most of us are asleep. 3:30 am EST. For those of you in Europe it will be 9:30 am whatever timezone Geneva is in.

If we are all dead when we wake up (yeah, make sense of that) I want you all to know that I love you and you made my last few weeks here at Losties very enjoyable. If we don't make it, I will see you all on the "big island" in the sky!

If we do make it, I will see your butts on here tomorrow. Haha.

Ste Hawking said people worrying about the end of the world is stupid. And I read a guy in a paper, a Manchester professor working on the project, referred to anyone who thought the world was going to end as a "tw-t", which I thought was great stuff.

Although a little warping ripple effect might have brightened up my day a bit.

Woohoo we are still here! cheers

I cant wait to read about the results.....this is a really exiting time for physics and I constantly wonder what changes we are going to see in our lifetime! I am sure that we will see the most amazing advances.....maybe not time travel or mulit-verse travel, but certainly the beginnings of a whole new world of science!

I spent the whole day telling people that we're not going to die at school today. Mad Even though it was turned on a 8:30 a lot of them thought we were all going to die, even as we were going home! It was quite funny when everyone was counting down to 2:30 (I don't know why) and thinking that there'd be a black hole then when nothing happened everyone just looked at me with blanc faces.

Aw, KSJ, that song/video of pictures made me horribly miss NYC. All of the photos are in Central Park and one of the photos of the people on the grass with a blanket is EXACTLY where I would park my ass for a hot summer day with some vodka/oj, nothin but my shorts on, a few friends playing frisby, and nothing above me but the blue blue skys. I know it was the spot because I remember that tree perfectly. It is what shaded my oj so my vodka/ojs would be cold. LoL. Thanks for depressing me, KSJ... thanks a lot... now I wish the black hole would have sucked me up.....


Just kidding!! It does sadden me because of the great memories, but the memories also make me smile. I am up for smiling anytime!

JW, It was precisely because of the pictures of NYC and knowing your connection, that I used that video. My credo is there are no coincidences. Smile

Haha, way to be KSJ... way to be.

I stepped on a big bug today, I have no idea what it is, by accident. It got me to thinking. If everything is meant to happen, then what was the reason for that bug having to die?

Here is my thought: The bug had to die because if it would have lived, it would have been food for a bird. That bird would have went on lay the egg of a bird, who once grown up, would fly into the engine turbine of an airplane, thus making the plane explode killing hundreds. Because I crushed that bug, the bird can't eat it and will starve to death leaving that egg to never had hatched and that plane to never have blown up. Long story short, I saved about 200 lives.
