So what is everyone's thoughts?

World's largest underground in the Switerland area.

Some believe it will cause the theorized vacuum that earth is in to break and destroy the earth instantly, others believe it will create dark matter (anti matter), others think it will create black holes and other earth ending events.

And many others say it's perfectly safe...

Just wondering what everyone here thinks...

Forming into dots
fear has a weapon
…explodes

in a blue light
in a moon light
in a green lght
in a wormhole
i am different
i am now gone
i am open
are you coming
to walk the shadows
back into
the boxes
i am open
i am welcome
i have dislodged my depression
and it falls off
and attaches
i am open
are you coming
to let the shadows back into
the boxes
to put the shadows back into
the boxes

necessary experiments to keep things interesting... if it ends up destroying us all (yeah right...) so be it.

Vacuum metastability event (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vacuum_bubble#Vacuum_metastability_event)


The possibility that we are living in a false vacuum has never been a cheering one to contemplate. Vacuum decay is the ultimate ecological catastrophe; in the new vacuum there are new constants of nature; after vacuum decay, not only is life as we know it impossible, so is chemistry as we know it. However, one could always draw stoic comfort from the possibility that perhaps in the course of time the new vacuum would sustain, if not life as we know it, at least some structures capable of knowing joy. This possibility has now been eliminated.

awesome.

edit: it gets better.


According to the many-worlds interpretation of quantum mechanics, the universe will not end this way. Instead, each time a quantum event happens that causes the universe to decay from a false vacuum to a true vacuum state, the universe splits into several new worlds. In some of the new worlds the universe decays; in some others the universe continues as before.

wtf?! many-worlds?

I've read alot of physics and metaphysics stuff and this thing sorta freaks me out.

Thank god we got Buckaroo Banzai to help us through all this.

It is perfectly safe, the only people that are scared aren't physicists. If you look all the people against it the are lawyers and medical doctors.

physics has nothing to do with metaphysics so I'm not sure why you feel compelled to group them together.

and shakermaker... welcome to the first day of the rest of your life, the one you in which you realize that in another world this revelation never happened upon you.

I keep thinking this thread is titled "Long-Handled Colander". I'm not sure why.

I read "Large Hardon Collider".

I'm sorry to bring an intelligent conversation down. We need a "shame" emoticon.

yes, I'm glad I'm not in one of those decaying worlds. I mean, guess I am there as well, but I'm glad the me in this world doesn't know anything about the me in the decaying world.

actually, I wonder what it feels like when the universe splits.

In a sense this could be correct.

then it feels like nothing.

How does that make you feel?

No reason to worry, If the one in a billion chance happens and the world ends we won't know it, it will just end.

Yeah? You know that at CERN about eight or nine years ago they realized after the fact that they'd come within a red cunt hair of accidentally creating a black hole, right?
