Remember when CERN's Large Hadron Collider was scheduled to be turned on for the first time? THere were efforts in the courts, both in this country, and in Europe, to block the process, with the plaintiffs seeking injunctions to prevent it, until the possibility that the collider might create "strangelets", or "quark-gluon condensates" or plasmas, that might gobble up the planet. At the time, these were referred to as "mini-black holes" though they're not quite the same thing. Strangelets are what physicists believe was an exotic state of matter that existed within a few seconds after the big bang. The fear was that they acted in a manner analogous to the "gray goo" scenario of nano-technology speculations, where a nano-technology is designed to gobble everything up and turn it into "gray goo", an apocalyptic scenario if there ever nwas one. Similarly, strangelets would convert all matter into the strangelet, eventually swallowing up the planet and converting all its mass into a superdense "goo". Well, that, anyway, is the Cliff Notes version, though I'm quite certain it would set most physicists' teeth on edge. Indeed, at the time, all these rumors and lawsuits did set physicists' teeth on edge, for they responded, quite correctly, that the dangers of CERN's monster machine doing this were vanishingly small. Not zero, but still, vanishly small. But adding fuel to the quiet controversy was the factt that these suits were thrown out of court. Why? Well, for one thing, the courts had no jurisdiction over CERN, for CERN is a quasi-sovereign entity, a kind of "cosmology cartel." And that meant, in turn, that the plaintiffs had no standing.
Well, the "strangelet" story is back in the alternative news community once again, in this article shared by Mr. V.T.:
Now note what is really going on here:
During our previous shows covering CERN we have spoken about something called “Strangelets”. Strangelets are produced that the LHC at energies over 10TeV. For long periods in 2016 10TeV+ was achieved and towards the end of the year the energy rose to over 1PeV – 1 Quadrillion Electron Volts which would’ve seen Strangelet production go through the roof – or perhaps it would be more apt to say fall through the floor!
Strangelet’s were first produced at CERN in 2010 and at that time they referred to them as plasma. The strangelet’s are composed of a Quark-Gluon condensate and are stable in nature. It’s this stability that makes them so utterly explosive due to everything else being of an unstable make up!
The Gluons normally act as intermediaries between the individual quarks, allowing exchanges of energy. It’s all in the name… Gluons – they literally glue the quarks in place. When the beams of particles collide they literally rip the Quarks & gluons apart and they form in a dense stable state.
Strangelet’s are highly dense and hard to contain once produced, and we had spoken about the potential for them to make their way towards the core of the planet and cause major disruption that would come in the form of earth changes, e.g. earthquakes and volcanic activity.
Now, I find this interesting, because in my own wild and very high octane speculations, I have entertained similar ideas, namely, that CERN's toy is really a planetary-scaled machine, capable, perhaps, of producing planetary effects, though I have concentrated not on the idea of strangelets, but rather upon the strong magnetic fields it produces, being embedded in a mollasse of rock, i.e., non-linear material, and that perhaps when "turned on" it could have effects on the planet, even, perhaps, on the earth's magnetic field, which in turn might affect human and animal behavior patterns in some way. As a result of these speculations, I've also entertained the idea that there may be two layers to CERN's computerized data selection filters, one picking out anomalous collision events for scientists to analyze and ponder, and a deeper, more secret one, picking out data that might have nothing to do with particle collisions. Inclusive in this second-filter layer, I have proposed that "data correlation" experiments might also be a secret and hidden component of the CERN experiments, measuring correlations of environmental(and sociological) effects when the collider is on.
