Date Set for Large Hadron Collider

The first beam of protons will be shot off on Sept. 10t. Maybe we should have a pre-party….

Ironically, with the announcement of this wonderful yet controversial event, no one at RH has been screaming there heads off about the total destruction of the world.

Here’s the article from the NYTimes

In September, the first protons to circle the entire ring will have a relatively modest energy of 450 billion electron volts. Once the physicists and engineers have learned to drive their new machine and had a few collisions at that energy, they will ramp up the energy as fast as they can to 5 trillion electron volts — unexplored territory.

“Now witness the firepower of this fully armed and operational AC-130″

June 4th, 2008 by Brando


We have hit this point in modern society where the concept of truth has been blurred by both opinion, religion and science itself. If we take truth to be a measure of veracity (dur), and absolute truth as the binary projection of that (true/false), we find that there is no absolute truth in anything. There is no absolute truth in the bible, nor is there absolute truth in the Copenhagen interpretation. Right now, there are bitter battles being fought in memespace over truth. global warming is one example of this. Does it exist? I don't know, I am not a scientist and I know not to trust CFD sims. There are equal weightings of opinion on either side. So what I mean by the truth being obsolete is that consensual truth seems to have disappeared. Everyone carries a zone of personal truths with them and now that we have such incredible accesses to information, we are seeing these zones interact violently. So the concept of consensual truth is obsolete in the internet age. Is absolute truth also obsolete?
