The real reason behind the Large Hadron Collider’s woes?

Old School RPGs - Available Now @


Is the future itself protecting mankind from its own hubris? I’m no physicist, so I have no idea if this is true or even possible, but I REALLY want it to be. The New York Times published an essay discussing a radical theory about why the Large Hadron Collider, with which scientists hope to discover new elementary particles, has had such a troubled road.

Physicists Holger Bech Nielsen and Masao Ninomiya have suggested that the existence of the particles the machine is designed to create are so abhorrent to the universe that it is reaching back in time to prevent the machine from ever coming online.

As crazy as it sounds, it’s not that much wilder than some other ideas hypothesized by advanced physics. Actually, it’s kind of comforting to think that the universe is looking out for itself. As long as the delays and mishaps the collider has gone through so far don’t escalate into cyborg killing machines sent back to alter mankind’s destiny.
