CERN turned on a massive super-collider to unlock secrets about the fabric of reality today
CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research turned on the world’s most powerful particle collider today to start smashing protons into each other at unprecedented levels of energy.
If you’re wondering what in the world I am talking about, trust me I am too. Here’s a quick breakdown of what we’re now dealing with now that CERN is up and running again.
Three years after it shut down for maintenance and upgrades, the collider was switched back on this April. This is the LHC’s third run, and from Tuesday, it will operate round-the-clock for four years at unprecedented energy levels of 13 tera electron volts. (A TeV is 100 billion, or 10-to-the-power-of-12, electon volts. An electron volt is the energy given to an electron by accelerating it through 1 volt of electric potential difference.)
“We aim to be delivering 1.6 billion proton-proton collisions per second” for the ATLAS and CMS experiments, CERN’s head of accelerators and technology Mike Lamont said, according to an AFP report. This time, the proton beams will be narrowed to less than 10 microns — a human hair is around 70 microns thick — to increase the collision rate, he said.
(ATLAS is the largest general purpose particle detector experiment at the LHC; the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experiment is one of the largest international scientific collaborations in history, with the same goals as ATLAS, but which uses a different magnet-system design.)
It appears that CERN was to resume their quest in hunting down “dark matter” in the universe.
The batch of LHC collisions observed at CERN between 2010-2013 brought proof of the existence of the long-sought Higgs boson particle which, along with its linked energy field, is thought to be vital to the formation of the universe after the Big Bang 13.7 billion years ago.
But plenty remains to be discovered.
Physicists hope the resumption of collisions will help in their quest for so-called “dark matter” that lies beyond the visible universe. Dark matter is thought to be five times more prevalent than ordinary matter but does not absorb, reflect or emit light. Searches have so-far come up empty-handed.
“We are going to increase the number of collisions drastically and therefore the probability of new discoveries also,” said Steerenberg, who added that the collider was due to operate until another shutdown from 2025-2027.
Okay enough with the science lessons. Basically, CERN is firing this massive super-collider to unlock secrets about fabric of reality. They started doing this in 2010 and ran tests for a few years, then stopped, then started again, and now they upgraded their gigantic machine and turned that shit on today to run even more tests.
I repeat, in 2010, they turned this machine on. Can anyone argue against the fact that the entire world has been slowly dying since 2010 and maybe this was the cause of everything? There are a lot of theories floating around the internet and this one makes the most sense. People think that CERN ripped a hole in the Earth’s timeline and is the reason for “glitches in the Matrix”. Seriously.
I think I will have to roll with that honestly. I have no idea why CHERN thinks it’s a great idea to turn this puppy back on today, but regardless, it doesn’t really seem like to be the best idea. Something fishy is happening and of course it comes at the same time you have El and Vecna battling it out in the Upside Down on Stranger Things.
Of course, the internet took this news just perfectly. Check out all these crazy conspiracies as to why CERN physicists are playing with fire and looking to fire this machine up to open up a black hole and/or wormhole, ultimately ended the world.

Weird, Alleged Quote from CERN Science Guy
I will say, I am a huge fan of all the random social media accounts that constantly make content around science stuff as if they discovered something that the European Organization for Nuclear Research may have overlooked.
The chances of that actually happening have to be close to zero, right?
Shields up? Wait a second. Now I just feel unprepared. How did the ginger get shields? Who is she talking to? Are we about to open up a bunch of portals? Why doesn’t this woman realize that gingers would be the first to die, regardless of shields?
So many questions, very little answers.
Regardless, all of this CERN information is pretty wild and I still don’t really understand it but it’s definitely something to keep an eye on.
Scientists working with the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) have discovered three subatomic particles never seen before as they work to unlock the building blocks of the universe, the European nuclear research centre CERN said on Tuesday.
Nice knowing everyone. We’re all just lab rats at this point. Who knows what’s going to happen. I don’t even know how saying “unlock the building blocks of the universe” can be viewed as a scientific theory. What does that even mean? Can someone please help me understand this? I think I’m going insane.
