Hadron Collider and black holes

The buzz is on, the particle collider has been turned on and particles are zooming around the Hadron Collider as I write this blog. There are plenty of informed people out there talking about this right now, there are an equal amount of uninformed people ranting about it as well. The whole idea that this collider may create a black hole on earth has been the big discussion.

To learn more for yourself on how the population is reacting (and get a feeling for whether or not the collider will bring about the end of the world) you can read postings from all walks of life here:

There are more facts on the Hadron collider at this link as well:

Just go to Google and you'll see that today they're illustration depicts the collider as a momentous day for science and click on it to see the top stories covering the Hadron Collider.

IS this the beginning of the end? Make an informed decision by reading the articles offered.

The new sun cycle may be what the Mayan were talking about

The suns cycles have been very important to humanity, and have been tracked by all races, none more so then the Mayan. With the Mayan long count calender coming to an end, we look to the sun to find clues as to whether it's changing cycle is part of their prediction.
Visit the following link to make up your own mind about the suns effect on the planet.

More information on this possible direction, when talking about the end of the world, or the apocalypse, can be found here: This website offers all sorts of information pertaining to the 2012 phenomenon we'll be facing in the next three years.

It's an exciting time, what with the solar system aligning with the galactic centre and the sun moving into its 24th cycle (recorded). Lots of things might happen, nothing might happen, but if the sun has a stormy cycle lots of things can happen.

I guess we'll just have to wait and see!

2012 the movie(s)

Well, I've been waiting for this to happen, the 2012 bandwagon is getting heavy.
There are two new movies slated for release over the next couple years using the idea behind the Mayan calender.
2012 i supposedly the last year entered into the Mayan long term calender. They had predicted their own end in the same calender and of course were dead on with the prediction. In their prediction they saw their own end in the coming of the white man and nailed it to the very day. Now it's our turn. December 2012 will usher in a new age for us all, possibly destruction, possibly just another apocalypse (a major change). Many of us feel it coming, but to hear it from the Mayan, such profound astronomers, gives it an eerie reality.
The movies, one slated for 2009 release and the other in 2010, ought to stir up more anxiety over the theory.
We'll have to wait and see of course, and of course people have been prophesying the end times forever, but will this be the one that takes?
I'm looking forward to the films and will keep my blog updated on announcements as the years

What will end the world as we know it? 2012, the Mayan Crystal Skulls, aliens?

The Discovery channel aired another show with the potential to end the world just the other night. The mystery of the crystal skulls (Like that of Indiana Jones' latest movie) where in if we do not bring all 13 skulls together before the Mayan calender runs out in 2012, then we are doomed.
Of course there are Many schools of thought concerning the end of the world. What if the end meant the beginning of something more? What if the apocalypse meant merely a shift in thought or awareness? Maybe something dramatic will occur on that date where it changes us as a people forever, like contact with an alien race or computers becoming self aware? The end doesn't have to be so menacing. Fact is there are more ways than one to end the world and the more we discover or create the more real it becomes. With the year 2000 passing relatively uneventfully we are holding onto 2012 now to give us a sign.
Whatever happens, let's hope it's for the better and not the worst. Humanity is a troubled species, but we're also a wonderfully creative and fascinating species that is working towards a better place (for the most part) .
People are inherently good, I believe that, and the more we believe that the less likely it is some galactic bad karma will destroy us.

The end may come sooner than we thought

'Black hole' machine could destroy planet: lawsuit
Updated Sat. Apr. 5 2008 7:04 AM ET
Parminder Parmar, News
An American and a Spaniard have launched a lawsuit to stop scientists from firing up a machine they fear could destroy not just life on Earth but the planet itself.
International scientists, including dozens from Canada, are about to launch the
Large Hadron Collider (LHC), a 27-kilometre long particle accelerator built near Geneva, Switzerland. It will shoot beams of protons at each other in an effort to recreate conditions that resemble what the universe might have been like in the milliseconds after the Big Bang.
"We want to probe the most basic particles and constituents (and we're) trying to understand how matter was made," Robert McPherson, a University of Victoria physics professor who is working on the project, told in a phone interview from Vancouver.
In the process, scientists may end up creating miniature black holes -- areas of space that have gravitational pulls so strong that not even light can escape.
The more matter a black hole pulls in, the stronger it becomes. And that's what worries Walter Wagner, the American who is suing to temporarily stop the project. He says the creation of these black holes here on Earth, no matter how small, may unleash a chain reaction that could destroy the planet.
Wagner says there's a possibility that black holes could just get bigger and bigger as they pull more and more matter into themselves.
"Eventually, all of Earth would fall into such growing micro-black-holes, converting Earth into a medium-sized black hole, around which would continue to orbit the moon, satellites, and the (International Space Station)," according to court papers Wagner, along with a citizen of Spain, filed in Honolulu.
In other words, Wagner asserts the LHC is a machine that will end up causing the Earth to eat itself -- perhaps in less than a century. It may sound fantastic, like a plotline out of a James Bond movie where an evil scientist holds the earth for ransom with a deadly weapon, but Wagner says the possibility isn't science fiction.
"Science fiction can be very strange and sometimes it can come very true. This is in the realm of possibilities where fiction can become fact," Wagner told in a telephone interview from his home in Honolulu.
Wagner, an education consultant who studied physics at Berkeley, says scientists working on the project haven't done enough studies to make sure the scenario he envisions won't actually occur. The suit -- which is filed against various U.S. agencies, including the Environmental Protection Agency -- aims to get a restraining order to stop work on the project until more safety studies are completed.
McPherson admits small black holes may be created, but he says the concerns are overblown. He says there is virtually no possibility that any black hole that scientists may create at the Large Hadron Collider will end up absorbing the Earth.
"Assuming our wildest fantasies, how much matter can one of these black holes consume in a second, in a year, or even in several billion years?" asks McPherson.
"A black hole we could make at the LHC would only consume a tiny fraction of a gram of matter from Earth. There's no possibility of causing any damage to the Earth," he said.
McPherson says the black holes will decay and disappear quickly. He adds that what scientists are trying to do in a laboratory setting at the LHC happens in nature daily.
"The Earth is constantly being bombarded by cosmic rays. Many of them have much higher energies than what we can create with the LHC. If something dangerous was being made in these interactions it would already have happened in cosmic ray interactions," he said.
But that's no comfort to Wagner. He says the LHC is like a factory that creates a waste product without any way to dispose of it. If he's correct, the factory won't get rid of the byproduct. Instead, the byproduct will dispose of the factory -- and everything else.

The only way to see the future, is if the future has already been written.

As the book suggests, the only way to see the future, is if the future has already been written. Thus, fate sets your course, not decisions, not free will, fate has your life planned at birth and there can be no change. Destiny is your master.

Nothing you do is going to change that, in fact, everything you do can only move you closer to your destiny, as set out by fate.

Suffocating isn't it?

The Happening, By M. Night Shyamalan

Yet another apocalyptic themed movie is on it's way to theatres. The happening, by writer director M. Night Shyamalan of The Sixth Sense fame, looks to be about the end of humanity. The trailers thus far are vague, but it would appear a virus is killing off humanity one city/state at a time.
I guess the big question will be, what's the twist?, as in all of Shyamalan's former pictures. Let's hope this one redeems M. Night after Lady in the Water, and The Village... neither really any good, even the ending of signs was pretty awful.
Good to see the Apocalyptic genre still going strong. Always an interesting theme for any story. I'll view it and review it on this blog as I did I am Legend.

Keep up to date on the Apocalypse at The Judas Syndrome website.

2012 and the new awakening

Looks like some of us aren't all doom and gloom over the coming year - 2012. In fact many see it as an opportunity. Visit and you'll get a good read on energies and a world wide telepathic event that is sure to take place in 2012.
Apocalypse, by definition, means change, not necessarily destruction. So maybe we'll all find ourselves listening to each others thoughts and thus changing as a species rather than the poles shifting, asteroids or comets falling to earth, the return of the messiah or anything quite so devastating as all that to our current existence.

What do you think?...

Don't forget to check out what's new ion the world of apocalyptic theory as well as movies and books here!

Apocalypse, 2012

Another novel has just been released called Apocalypse, 2012 by Lawrence E. Joseph. In new age circles, the idea that a world wide cataclysm is going to take place in December of the year 2012 has been gaining in popularity for a long time, thanks mostly to the Mayan Calender coming to an abrupt and absolute end.
Of course 'apocalypse' can mean more than merely the end, it is the end of things as we know them, perhaps 2012 will usher in a new era of understanding,. It's all speculative, but then, what end of the world scenario hasn't been?!
The author adds science based threats to the earth to make the book believable and if you're at all interested in the science behind the end then this might just be the book for you.

Super Comet, apocalypse

Discovery Channel showed what a Super Comet might do to the planet, and humans should we be hit by something that might resemble what ended the reign of the Dinosaurs. It's a brutal telling of an apocalyptic story.
Despite the comets terrifying consequences humanity does survive in remote areas.
The show is peppered with experts and good commentary on the what ifs.

The end could come in 2020

Taken from the website:

"More than a third of Americans in a new poll expect the United States to be involved in a nuclear war during the next 50 years. A majority of Americans, 56 percent, think overpopulation will be a major problem in the next 50 years and cause a strain on food and resources. About the same number think there will be an epidemic worse than AIDS in that period, health care will be less affordable and the crime rate will grow higher.
Almost two-thirds, 64 percent, think there will probably be a major terrorist attack on the U.S involving biological or chemical weapons. About the same number fear the world is likely to face a major energy crisis and environmental problems may be a major threat.
Still, seven out of 10 people in a poll by the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press say they are hopeful about life in the new millennium.
That hopeful outlook is promoted by their faith in science, technology, medicine and higher education."Forecasters fear 2020, when computing power EQUIVALENT TO THE HUMAN BRAIN is expected to cost about $1,000. 2040 is even more frightening with ALL the brainpower in the U.S. available for $1,000. Many, including the Wired Cassandra, Bill Joy, (the main contributor to the non-Microsoft operating systems world), see this as likely to lead to human extinction.
