Prepare for the Revolution, within ALL BRANCHES of science, technology, and communications! The answers to many controversial theories are at hand; such as: The Big Bang, Accelerating Universe, Dark Energy, Dark Matter, Multiverse (Parallel Dimensions), Bubble Universe(s), Gravity, Time, Anti-Matter, Superstring, Supersymmetry Particles, Higgs Particle, Blackhole Formations, Expanding Quantum Wormhole Formation, . . . etc., and anything else you can think up! CERN LHC/ALICE/ATLAS, if all goes well, will start rendering discoveries between October 2008, and early-mid 2009 (once financed). These experimental projects collide either Protons, or Heavy Lead(Pb) Ions, at 14 TeV (trillion electron volts), and no one actually knows what will happen! Not even the smartest man on Earth: Stephen Hawking! There is already a decade of pre-planned precision energy upgrades (2009-2019), to optimize the 'impact moment', producing even more specific information data! These discoveries shall most likely lead to the overhaul-reconstruction, of the current 'Standard Model'! This in-turn will reconfigure the Cosmological Model, and ignite a chain-reaction of a knowledge explosion! It will be sweeping, with far reaching implications! A Brave New World shall emerge from the ashes of our latest Dark Ages, and perhaps clarity will prevail with a clear vision of our 'reality'! Upto now, a portion of the 'Standard Model' has been nothing more than a theoretical-mathematic representation (intelligent guessing), and this is what the LHC Projects have been based/built upon! Anything becomes possible within the Heisenberg 'Uncertainty Principle', and the uncertainty among LHC designers. This last statement comes with a proviso: Only if Stephen Hawking is incorrect about 'Hawking Radiation', and it's dissipation effects upon (MBH) Micro-Blackholes. He is currently uncertain in this regard! Also, there would have to be a defect (misunderstanding) of the 'Standard Model', and this would have been overlooked by the entire scientific, mathematic, and physics communities combined! The odds are against it; however, Murphys' Law: Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong eventually!!! The following is a Risk List: (MBH) Micro-Blackhole (non-dissipating forms), Expanding Quantum Wormholes (possibly caused by Project ALICE, using heavy lead(Pb) ion collisions, creating a gravitational plasma vortex), Relativistic Time-Distortions (General Relativity), Strangelet Transitions (possibly new destructive forms of matter), Loss of Structural Integrity (by disturbing quantum pathways, that could alter nuclear positionings, and change molecular-chemical structures), and let's not leave out Complete Protonic Particle Reversal (an anti-matter explosion)! The following is the Positive Potential List of unimaginable outgrowth: The secrets may be discovered for a Nuclear and/or Plasma Fusion process. This could be forwarded to a specialized fusion facility, and meet our future-world desperate energy needs!!! Also, the development of Plasma-Driven Pulse-Detonated Fusion-Reactor Engines, for Interstellar Spaceflight. With this power magnitude being sent through a cryonic-superconductivity complex grid, even Time-Travel becomes a possiblity (by creating a negative curvature within Space/Time, envisioned by Einstein-Rosen-Hawking), or at least sending emergency electronic-light messaging, backward in Time!!! We cannot stay on this Earth as a 'race' forever, there will come a time to leave! With the incredibly increasing odds of a Sixth Mass Earth Extinction (perhaps already in progress!), the clock seems to be ticking a little faster lately!!! Research and Debate the risk potentials v/s the unimaginable outgrowth potential, and if the decision is 'yes' to proceed with LHC/ALICE/ATLAS, then do so with extreme caution!!! It is our duty, our right, our obligation to debate these circumstances, for our future generations' welfare (and maybe for our own current time!)! So, let's get with it, and become effective for an excellent cause!!! In this thread, I am neither for, nor against; however, these are some of the general facts involved, and nothing more! I sincerely hope that you will share this expanding view, with friends and associates! Thank You!
