In September, Europe’s Large Hadron Collider (LHC) will smash together sub-atomic particles at nearly the speed of light, an unprecedented experiment that has some of the leading voices in the world of science – and religion – sounding the alarm on the risks involved.

CERN is perhaps most famous for its discovery in 2012 of the elusive Higgs Boson [named after British physicist Peter Higgs who predicted its existence in 1964], the so-called ‘God particle,’ which allows other particles to build up mass as they pass through the Higgs field.

Today, however, CERN is more famous – or perhaps infamous is the better word – for an upcoming experiment in which scientists will play God in an effort to recreate the conditions immediately following the ‘Big Bang’ event that gave birth to the Universe millions of years ago.

For those who are in the dark about CERN and the controversial objectives it hopes to achieve, here is a quick primer.

10. CERN is the world’s biggest machine

Straddling the French-Swiss border, the $9 billion CERN collider complex is buried at a depth of up to 575 feet (175 meters). The tunnel complex runs along a 17-mile (27-kilometer) circuit. Scientists involved in the project say the laboratory was built underground because the Earth’s crust provides protection against radiation. They also say it was buried out of respect for the natural landscape, which sounds slightly ironic considering the massive damage the collider could possibly cause down the road.

9. Massive gravitational pull

The CERN collider is composed of some 9,600 super magnets – which are 100,000 times more powerful than the gravitational pull of Earth – that fire protons around a circular track at mindboggling speeds. A beam might rotate for up to 10 hours, travelling a distance of more than 10 billion kilometers, enough to make it to the far reaches of our Solar System and back again. Travelling just below light-speed, a proton in the LHC will make 11,245 circuits every second.

No less amazing are the magnet’s coils, which are made up of 36 twisted 15mm strands, each strand comprised in turn of 6000-9000 single filaments, each filament possessing a diameter as small as 7 micrometers. The 27km length of the LHC demands some 7,600 km (4,100 miles) of cable, which amounts to about 270,000 km (145,000 miles) of strand — more than enough to circle the Earth six times at the Equator. According to the CERN website, if the filaments were unraveled, they would “stretch to the Sun and back five times with enough left over for a few trips to the Moon.”

8. CERN generates extreme temperatures

There may be another reason for the CERN super collider being buried hundreds of feet underground: The unbelievable hot temperatures it can reach. How hot you ask? Well, about as hot as conditions in the Universe after the Big Bang, or more than 100,000-times the temperature at the center of the Sun. This will be achieved, CERN says, by accelerating and colliding together two beams of heavy ions, an epic scientific event that will take place next month.

7. But Stephen Hawking is worried

Although it may require some mental gymnastics to wrap one’s brain around exactly what the CERN scientists are attempting to achieve in their underground lab, the average layman may instinctively understand that such an experiment may be wrought with unforeseeable pitfalls. Stephen Hawking, the eminent physicist, seems to agree.

“The God particle found by CERN could destroy the universe,” Hawking wrote in the preface to a book, Starmus, a collection of lectures by scientists. The Higgs Boson could become unstable at very high energy levels and have the potential to trigger a “catastrophic vacuum decay which would cause space and time to collapse and… we would not have any warning to the dangers,” he continued.

Hawking is not the only voice in the scientific wilderness predicting possible catastrophe if CERN continues in the atomic fast lane. Astrophysicist Neil de Grasse Tyson told Eugene Mirman on his Star Talk radio program that the experiment could literally cause the planet to “explode.”

“Ask yourself: How much energy is keeping it together? Then you put more than that amount of energy into the object.” Tyson was confident of the result: “It will explode.”

In late 2008, when CERN was first firing up the engines on its atom-smashing machine, Otto Rossler, a German professor at the University of Tubingen, filed a lawsuit against CERN with the European Court of Human Rights, on the grounds that the facility could trigger a mini black hole that could get out of control and annihilate the planet. The Court tossed out Rossler’s request, but he nevertheless succeeded in generating heated discussion on the possible dark side of the experiment.

6. Opening the door to other dimensions

One year after CERN’s grand opening, Sergio Bertolucci, former Director for Research and Scientific Computing of the facility, grabbed headlines when he told a British tabloid the super collider could open otherworldly doors to another dimension for “a very tiny lapse of time,” mere fractions of a second. However, that may be just enough time “to peer into this open door, either by getting something out of it or sending something into it.”

“Of course,” added Bertolucci, “after this tiny moment the door would again shut; bringing us back to our ‘normal’ four-dimensional world … It would be a major leap in our vision of nature… And of course [there would be] no risk to the stability of our world.”

Naturally, this comment has triggered fears that the CERN collider could unwittingly invite unwanted visitors from other time-space dimensions. Anybody for dinosaurs strolling along the Champs-Élysées, or alien life forms seizing the entire planet? Such scenarios – at least for some scientists – are no longer confined to the fictional world of Isaac Asimov novels; with the ongoing work at CERN, there is even talk of opening up a portal for time travel.

Simply postulating such futuristic scenarios shows how far mankind has traveled in a relatively short expanse of time, and our dystopic future predicted in books like “Brave New World” and “1984” may already be here. Will man be able to control the technology he has created, or will the technology destroy him, his works, and with it the entire planet?

5. CERN’s curious choice of geographic location

Now on top of all the speculation as to what CERN scientists are really attempting to do with their Large Hadron Collider, many observers could not help but notice that the town in France where CERN is partially situated is called “Saint-Genus-Poilly.” The name Pouilly comes from the Latin “Appolliacum” and it is believed that in Roman times a temple existed in honor of Apollo, and the people who lived there believed that it is a gateway to the underworld. It is interesting to note that CERN is built on the same spot.

Religious leaders – always suspicious of the aims of the scientific world – drew a connection to a verse straight out of Revelations (9:1-2, 11), which makes reference to the name ‘Apollyon.’ The verse states: “To him was given the key of the bottomless pit. And he opened the bottomless pit… And they had a kind over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon.”

Now try telling a spiritual leader that the Bible is conspiracy theory.

4. Tapping into ‘Dark Matter’

Astonishingly, astrophysical observations have demonstrated that all visible physical matter accounts for only four percent of the Universe. Now the race is on at CERN to find those elusive particles or phenomena responsible for dark matter (23 percent) and dark energy (73 percent). Essentially what the CERN experiment hopes to achieve is to separate – by way of the atom smasher – the invisible dark matter, which has been described as the very glue that holds together, from the visible. There’s just one problem with this experiment: Nobody has any idea what the consequences will be if that goal is achieved. So once again, this ‘dark versus visible’ paradigm has generated a battle that transcends the scientific world, becoming a question involving philosophy and spirituality.

3. CERN logo

I will leave it up to the imagination of the reader to determine if the public relations team at CERN opened up the door to massive conjecture – not to mention a huge amount of ‘conspiracy theory’ – by opting for the particular logo design that they did.

2. Deity of destruction as corporate mascot

Although most corporations shun any connection with religion and the spiritual world, CERN has chosen as its mascot a Hindu goddess. But not just any Hindu goddess. Just outside of its headquarters building sits an ancient statue to Shiva, ancient Apollyon, the goddess of destruction. Strange?

1. No Democratic debate

CERN is presently ramping up the largest atom collider in the world (it takes months for the magnets to get the particles to reach near light-speed) in preparation for their next atomic collision which is scheduled to take place next month – with barely a mention in the media of the risks involved. Since some critics say this scientific experiment poses greater risks than even the tests prior to the introduction of the atomic bomb, it would stand to reason that there should be much more discussion on this ‘dark matter.’ Sadly, and not a little ironically, CERN – which essentially governs itself as its own fiefdom – is operating just as invisibly as the particles they are attempting to study.

However, CERN has been the trailblazer on a number of other highly credible projects, which may tempt people to give them the benefit of the doubt regarding CERN, which certainly ranks as one of the most comprehensive and expensive scientific experiments in history.

In 1989, under the guidance of Tim Berners-Lee, CERN began the World Wide Web project, which led to the first webpage in history. On April 30, 1993, CERN announced that the World Wide Web would be free to anyone.

    That’s us all dead then. Go out and blow the kids inheritance, drink a bottle of whiskey and do whatever you want, we’re doomed. NO? then what’s this all about, and I’m assuming most people will think no. There’s a lot of hype about September, but is it all distraction, watch this hand while I do something with the other. I don’t know what’s going on, but it seems that TPTB, are trying to convince us a meteorite is going to hit us or Cern is going to destroy us, whilst meanwhile China’s blowing up and Russia is in Syria. To hell with it, back to plan A, where’s the whiskey?

    • Another sober view, injection of common sense, badly needed with whats flying around these days
      No, I don’t get scared. I am unafraid
      I realise this is Spiritual War and certain spiritual rules have to be adhered to by this crime syndicate
      We therefore have protection, if we open our eyes and realise the deceptions, of secularism, the Satanists are trying to pull, to leave us unprotected.
      This is what I think is going on.
      @nt@rctic thing Charles drake discussed the other day
      S@turn, theres s@tanic technologies being used on this planet utilising the leyline grid and other such things.

      Those that don’t realise thjis situation, on the fence, not aligned with, fighting for God/Source.HolySpirit, will suffer

      This is an extradimensional conspiracy we are facing, this is clear. And the world and reality moves in mysterious ways as a result of this physics truth

      Therefore this September it needn’t be the end of the world at all. Theyre at their black magic tricks sowing scare stories around, black magic physics

      I am ready, unafraid, aligned with Him, at peace with the situation

    Well for us atheists it’s a challenging time watching some scientists play with our one and only life

    “The unbelievable hot temperatures it can reach. How hot you ask? Well, about as hot as conditions in the Universe after the Big Bang, or more than 100,000-times the temperature at the center of the Sun” – nothing on Earth can outreach the heat of the Sun and not melt – Cern is made of metal and magnets which will not out heat the sun – another lie of these satanists calling themselves scientists – apparently they have visited the sun and came back without a burn! we are ‘know it all’ idiots – figured it all out in our little lying minds…

    Cern logo is 666 – the Antichrist mark of the beast – it is aNWO project to bring about the kingdom of the Antichrist – which is going to lead to the world end and complete destruction of all life on Earth very fast indeed.

    Cern is a satanist project – more of a satanic ritual of destruction and could they be actaullly trying to tunnel into the bottom of the Earth to loose whatever is down there and bring it up from hell which is beneath the Earth (the Earth of course is flat – just look carefully at yearly flight patterns – back and forth in linear lines – no round travelling the Earth or taking shortcuts)

  4. Lynn says:

    They are insane !! what do we expect. Even a miracle isn’t going to make the insanity stop. We are in a lunatic asylum and well and truly trapped. I agree with Ian spend up and drink ourselves into oblivian.

  5. Emm Jay says:

    This is a really thought provoking article. When I first knew about CERN I thought about it in a positive way, that it was exciting …. but given the depths of the deceptions that these Machiavellian people constantly try to ‘pull off’ … I ain’t so sure now ….

    • Digitalis says:

      Hi Emm Jay hope you are well. This has been posted here before but just to let you and others know (if you didn’t already as I’ve posted it elsewhere) this is surely more than a little spooky and as such, like you I’m now ‘not so sure’ about all that is happening at CERN.

      Go to Google Maps and expand it as far as you can get, that is until shit tip Britain becomes but a blip! Then in the maps search bar enter this; 23 9 2015 as in 23rd September 2015 and then press the search and see what comes up!

      Insane? Spooky? Coincidence? Or what….I guess we’ll find out in about three weeks time!

      • Hi Digitalis Arbroath was on about to0day 15th September being a major day, not necessarily related to Cern, I hope he replies to my questions, very intriguing comment he left.
        also see this. Couldit be related to cern

        ”5 Things You Need To Know About The Final Blood Moon In September (Astrology) ”
        http://sitsshow.blogspot.co.uk/2015/08/5-things-you-need-to-know-about-final.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Feed:+StillnessInTheStormBlog+(Stillness+in+the+Storm+Blog)

        ”What to expect this coming blood moon

        In September will feel an intensification of this ‘awakening’, a heightened sense of intuition and perhaps even psychic abilities in those who have that, due to Haumea’s activation via an opposition from Uranus, and then Mercury’s conjunction to Haumea. We will experience a majorly expanded sense of willpower, determination, and passion in September when Jupiter aligns with Orcus to oppose Neptune. This article will go deep into why; a carefully thought out theory for why we will feel this ‘ascension’, and what to expect in September and forward.”

        ”To repeat a summary of my theory, I theorize that in September, the collective consciousness will be endowed with 1. A euphoric, extremely strong determination and willpower to expand and learn due to Jupiter conjunct Orcus opposite Neptune, and 2. A heightened sense of intuition, psychic abilities on the rise because of the Uranus opposition Haumea. Then after September 27th, it will noticeably intensify and solidify with the Blood Moon of Makemake.”

        Pay very close attention to the energy of September 13th (The Solar Eclipse, perfect New Moon) and September 28th(The Blood Moon, perfect Full Moon). The energy of those 2 days and the weeks in-between will be a preview of the future; the energy of this time will be solidified and cemented into the collective consciousness for years to come.

      • Emm Jay says:

        Hi Digitalis, hey good to hear from you and hope you too are well. Thanks for the info, will take a look …. hmmm ….. got a feeling I’m gonna be even less sure when I do …. worried face!

  6. Dublinmick says:

    since cern shut down, some are even wondering if the explosions in China had anything to do with cern. Food for thought.

    • I don’t understand. Do you mean …cern acts, or was acting, ….perhaps along some kind of energy lines, leylines. or even through the earth
      Im randomly speculating here but ive read recently its not so much hollow earth, but honeycombed earth. Some inner caverns, more like worlds, the size of Texas. This is acc to corey goode.
      tunnels, ultra high speed trains, criss crossing all over. Underneath our feet I don’t think its like we are told in school books at all, Rockefeller owned school books, I imagine
      Could cerns shitting down, have blown a fuse in some kind of other relay station on the other side of the world? Who knows even though the leylines are invisible, there might still be real world 3D stations that act like some kind of relay stations. Perhaps alice springs in Australia where prince harry did a 6 week army visit a short while back? ‘Training’ the news said
      Montauk long island?
      Im guessing these are vortex points on earth, like acupuncture points.
      I heard somewhere balmoral castle was built on a vortex point. But im sure military bases have rushed to build on them. As well as corporations choice real estate
      henry would walk round an international bank in Manila. He felt the energy, it helped him rid his health issues and get well. A vortex point perhaps, leyline convergence cross point. 33rd degree mason taught knowledge perhaps? or 30th degree I don’t know
      My point is its intrighuing what you say
      Cern switched off. maybe its blown some other etheric leyline grid relay stations in china chemical plants acting as cover? id not have speculated this till your comment
      Another question arises, why did cern shut down?
      Cobra (who I don’t know if I can trust. A clever subtle sophisticated NWO shill with jew backers perhaps) (or Satanist backers? He certainly goes on about gods and goddesses a lot)
      But id like to hope and believe cobras actually real, really has been a starseed from the Pleiades and part of the earth resistance for 35 yrs against the cabal
      Cobra says that cern has got many RM resistance movement against the cabal, infiltrators in cern. Scientists I expect. White hat sleepers he seems to be meaning
      Not sure if I trust cobra
      But cern shutting down this September seems strange?
      or maybe Chinese explosions are some kind of retaliation for cern shutdown?

      But no scrub that. The Economist cover, Rothschild owned in jan 2015 I believe, spells it out what NWO Rothschild have in store this year. For illuminati in the know round the world looking at the economist theyd know whats planned

      I don’t believe this to be an accurate assessment of the extraterrestrial situation. Hawkings’ fears about this are as far off the mark as his black hole theory. The presence of a pulsar beacon network indicates the long term existence of a Galaxy wide civilization that routinely travels and navigates amongst the stars. See my book Decoding the Message of the Pulsars available on this site. The fact that a number of these pulsar beacons are conveying a message to warn us (human Earth residents) about the Galactic superwave phenomenon indicates that they also have concern for our safety. They want us to survive and develop. The Independence Day/War of the Worlds scenarios are fictions not to be taken seriously. Civilizations that are predatory quickly exterminate themselves leaving the more peaceful civilizations to advance technically and dominate the Galaxy.

      I believe ‘Hawkings’ fears’ could very well be the result of a controlled compromised person trying to put fear into the collective consciousness, and lay the groundwork for an attempt at project bluebeam.
      Which I do not think they are going to pull off but it pays to be vigilant and keep spreading awareness of bluebeam.
      Some voices are even saying, I may even have mentioned this before, certain articles are on the internet. The real Hawking may have died years ago of his illness.
      The ‘Hawking’ today might just be a gatekeeper figurehead for the physics lies fairytales that are taught in universities and have moulded our whole socieities and economies since early 20th century.
      And it is curious that ‘Hawking’ appears as a quite regular guest on Jeffrey Epsteins private carribbean playground island, strange for a leading physicist, I wonder why he goes?
      I understand if this comment doesn’t get posted, since theyre controversial things im saying. But I feel these observations needed to be made in view of ‘Hawkings’ scaremongering about hostile aliens.

    “THEIR” speciality is lies. theft, malice and fear porn.
    Ignorance can generate fear and, fear is their nourishment.
    I refuse to give them what they want and, what they appear to desperately need .
    I also have an inherent feeling; where it comes from I know not but, I am convinced, we are stronger and more powerful than them.

    Number 7 above says “…..the experiment could literally cause the planet to explode ”

    Who in their right mind would blow up the planet “they” live on ?

    (1) A complete lunatic.
    (2) Someone who has another place of safety ?
    (3) Someone who is desperate !

    Do “they” have somewhere else to go ?
    I don’t know but… I doubt it ?

    Are they lunatics ?……definitely !

    ARE “THEY” DESPERATE ?
    I wonder…….I have a suspicion, “they” may well be !

    “They” plan centuries in advance so, one must assume they have a considerable amount of fore knowledge ?
    IF, it is true, that ENERGY WAVES are coming onto planet earth in September and, potentially waking up humanity…..the EL-iteS (SATANIC-i’ll thieve everything SCUM) would have known about it well in advance and, one would assume, put evasive strategies in place ?

    Is CERN an evasive strategy of some sort ?
    Could well be ?
    If, dark matter/negative energies arrive on planet earth in sufficient quantity…. that event may counter the positive outcome of the ENERGY WAVES, in terms of a good outcome for mankind ?
    That may well be CERNs role ?

    THEY MAY WELL BE DESPERATE ?

    I have a suspicion “they” lack the requisite neurology to ascend/attain enlightenment ?
    If, this is true, it may well leave the psychopathic “left brainers”, trailing the human race.
    An outcome too galling for these power crazed monsters to contemplate !

    The other thing I wonder about is, IF, humanity has the potential to “UPGRADE” does the OPPOSITE exist ?

    Is there a potential for degeneration/degradation/deterioration ?
    I ask this question in relation to the vile entities terrorizing mankind ?
    Are they “time expired” ?

    My current thinking is ….mankind may ascend/acquire an exceptional knowledge over the coming months.

    The SCUM of the Universe MAY not and…. I wonder if their “power” is waning ?

    If, sufficient dark matter FORCES fail to arrive…..to counter the increased AWARENESS of mankind…….the position of the SCUM who, have oppressed mankind for millenia….MAY become untenable.

    THE MASSES, MAY TURN ON THEM ?
    And, I wonder if, this is the reason for the apparent keenness to lock down mankind….. asap !

    Just thinking !

    • Kingel I think you make a lot of great thought explorations, and your proposing situations

      This could be rubbish. Corey goode has said earth has been quarantined, solar system too, no one allowed in or out. This is because of the sphere alliance, Blue Avians, who have come in late 2014, and created this quarantine. And they have given the good faction of the SSP, the anti cabal faction, technology so they are on an equal footing with weaponry, to the bad cabal SSP. Therefore they may be desperate

      Cern countering the positive incoming Superwave energy waves. yes sounds very possible

      Well what you have just said, I have read it yes. Cant remember where. Maybe in5D website not sure. Or hipknowsys. it is said that when the dna upgrade Ascension comes, which I presume the writer meant superwave energies coming in. Those of the lower vibrations wont ascend, they will stay in their own lower vibration world. A different timeline that good awakened ones will go into

      I think as Tapblog has chatted about before , this Race, this group , satanic group whoever they are, are envious. They’ve been envious of the Aryan race. This is their drive to divide and conquer and wipe us out. Thus us whats going on

      I think your whole train of thoughts are very inspired. I think youre on the right track, is my sense and feeling of things !

      • kingel says:

        I try and think logically but, these vile entities are so “off the wall” I am not sure logic is much help !
        Having said that I am convinced they are envious of us. I was never able to work out why.
        The “superwave” could be the answer.

        It is interesting what you say about the earth being quarantined. Michael Tsarion says the same thing. However, Tsarion says we have been quarantined for thousands of years. He said the quarantine was the result of some universally “undesirable” entities accidentally landing on Planet Earth, we were quarantined to prevent this pollution infecting other Planets !

        I believe the original AM CERN theories, hypothesized that the aim was to invite evil onto Planet Earth or, as a portal to allow the EL-iteS to escape.

        Why would the EL-iteS be in such a hurry to escape ?
        Planet Earth is an amazing place ?
        I can only assume …….the EL-iteS need to escape ?

        Planet Earth will no longer be an hospitable place for them ?
