Skip to comments.Large Hadron Collider could be world’s first time machine

If the latest theory of Tom Weiler and Chui Man Ho is right, the Large Hadron Collider the worlds largest atom smasher that started regular operation last year could be the first machine capable of causing matter to travel backwards in time.
Our theory is a long shot, admitted Weiler, who is a physics professor at Vanderbilt University, but it doesnt violate any laws of physics or experimental constraints.
One of the major goals of the collider is to find the elusive Higgs boson: the particle that physicists invoke to explain why particles like protons, neutrons and electrons have mass. If the collider succeeds in producing the Higgs boson, some scientists predict that it will create a second particle, called the Higgs singlet, at the same time.
According to Weiler and Hos theory, these singlets should have the ability to jump into an extra, fifth dimension where they can move either forward or backward in time and reappear in the future or past.
One of the attractive things about this approach to time travel is that it avoids all the big paradoxes, Weiler said. Because time travel is limited to these special particles, it is not possible for a man to travel back in time and murder one of his parents before he himself is born, for example. However, if scientists could control the production of Higgs singlets, they might be able to send messages to the past or future.

After the iPad what is there to invent? Seriously. If anyone invents a time machine (it’s about time somebody did) it’ll be Apple.
And could someone please tell me why we pulled the plug on our own SUPER COLLIDER in Texas?
Billions were spent, it was 7/10ths the way built. It offered hope and promises that only forward thinking people could ever understand!
And it was either Bushie 1 (rhino extraordinaire,) or Bubba, that put a stop to it. (Sorry, I just can’t remember.)
Methinks that if the true story be known, there was a whole lot more there than meets the eye.
But then again, I’m an old Bircher. I still have my little Blue Book. The one that I got ridiculed for. “Where’s your tin foil hat?”
Now I watch Beck, and Hannity and even Rush, proclaim that “Hey, we FOUND a commie under your bed!” Well freakin surprise, surprise A$$hats!!
Read the little blue book. These modern days “visionaries” now know what we did so many years ago. There really was a conspiracy, it really did (does) exist. It really WAS meant to destroy the Republic. (sigh)
Well, no sh!t Sherlock, you’re only 30 years tooooo late and about 14 trillion toooo short.
I must apologize. It’s coming into April, the month that we bugged out on a stalwart ally, millions of people died. Despite what John Effin Currysouce and Janie Porn Queen Fondle said wouldn’t happen.
Where Temporal is Jobs 1.
The wind died down.
Im curious: Whats the speculation about the Fifth Dimension?
Also, look up tesseract. It might help visualizing extra dimensions
Nice ! LOL
“”...the worlds largest atom smasher that started regular operation last year could be the first machine capable of causing matter to travel backwards in time.”
THAT would be the government subsidized train system we know as Amtrack.
“And could someone please tell me why we pulled the plug on our own SUPER COLLIDER in Texas?”
Home Depot bought the Super Collider tunnel and chopped it up to sell as post holes...
It was killed in 1993 by Congress. A few buildings were constructed, but nowhere near 7/10ths built.
I’ll bet you’re right on the money with that one! Some chicken farmer or mushroom grower bought those tunnels for about five pennies on the dollar.
Who knows? Maybe that’s where the next crop of “medical maryjane” is gonna come from!
Where people sleeping near a certain place all have the same dream, and it turns out it is a message from the future telling them not to open some thing because it will release the son of the devil...
There’s no future in time travel.
I thought they broke up.
