Notwithstanding that unapologetically paradoxical statement, one cannot help but entertain vivid Dr. Who fantasies of a blue phone booth swirling and landing in the neighborhood. Is it really time?
The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in CERN, Switzerland, the world’s largest particle accelerator, is set to be activated in May of this year. Scientists imagine it could reveal the shape of alternate dimensions. That is exciting enough when one considers other recent news that the Ophiuchus cluster, at the heart of our galaxy, is emitting highly energetic X-rays which has turned it into a giant particle accelerator. If our relatively tiny model is expected to reveal such powers, what could Ophiuchus bring?
Many alternate researchers like John Major Jenkins believe our alignment with the galactic plane on the winter solstice in 2012, a once-every-26,000-year-event, will somehow enable a transformation of consciousness. Could these Super X-Rays be just what the Doctor ordered in terms of opening stargates to the next dimension? Have science and spirituality come close enough for us to sense some kind of truth to that?
And if so, what should we think of the news that some Russian scientists suggest that the scientists at CERN, in their endeavor to create micro-wormholes, or ‘mini’ black holes, could instead have built the world’s first time machine? They posit that time traveling is only possible as far back as the point of creation of the first time machine. That would make 2008 “Year Zero”, and we could see visitors from the future begin to appear. With Ophiuchus in mind, the musings of the Daily Galaxy give me pause, “Even the most massive human experiment is a pale imitation of the galactic-sized particle accelerators that fire cosmic radiation at us daily, and with all that high-energy activity in the sky if techno-mutants from the year Q4099 did want to invade they wouldn’t have to hang around supercooled Genevese caverns to do it.”
Indeed. It’s quite possible we are already entertaining travelers from the future, and simply don’t know it; one need only consider the Butterfly Effect or various temporal paradoxes to understand why. Posthuman Blues had this to say about the mainstream skepticism of time travel, “Stephen Hawking has used the same argument. If time travel is possible, he maintains, we should see a steady influx of “tourists” from our own future. This reasoning is easily as limited as the assumption that ET visitors will “land on the White House lawn” if they happen to visit.”
Some claim to have accidentally slipped through time. The Philadelphia Experiment was supposedly haunted by timeline inconsistencies, and the Montauk Project contains similar claims. Here’s another interesting article about a temporal vortex discovered by scientists in Antarctica. For more about the possibilities of time travel, watch this excellent lecture by theoretical physicist Paul Davies. The bending of space-time and the illusion of particle physics in the first place beg our attention, and that of our greatest scientific minds.
One wonders if there really will be any sort of great change on that winter solstice moment in 2012, or if we are perhaps already beginning to feel the effects of a gradual transformation, as we move closer to the alignment. Perhaps the news at CERN is no coincidence in terms of timing. We’ve grown more willing to entertain the possibility; whether in terms of science or spirituality, we are in fact energetic conduits of consciousness, and our location in the galaxy could fast-forward our readiness to explore new territory and open the door to the unknown. A Kean Eye suggests galactic ‘thought particle accelerators’ explain the recent exponential growth in science and technology; I think that sums it up quite nicely.
On the other hand, it could be the key to our undoing as well. I couldn’t help but notice that Project Camelot’s article on 2008, which mentions time travelers as well as the mind-blowing chronovisor, stated that, “According to Dan Burisch, in testimony which we regard as credible, the future humans’ best evaluation of the catastrophe which befell their ancestors (i.e. us) was that it was caused by micro-wormholes in space-time which caused effects which were inadvertently and devastatingly amplified by man-made stargates and time-portal ‘Looking Glass’ devices.” They are assured that the devices in question have been disabled, successfully averting that catastrophic timeline.
Of course one does not take Project Camelot’s words as gospel; even they caution against that. However I do pay attention when I just happen to stumble on the word “micro-wormhole” more than once on the same day. And I will continue to pay attention to the news out of Switzerland this spring. Our future is fragile enough as it is.
