Remember that story last week that I blogged about, conCERNing CERN's desire to build an even bigger collider of approximately 100km underneath a sizeable chunk of Switzerland? Well, guess who they're talking to about boring through all that rock? Here's a hint: I also blogged about Elon Musk's purported new boring tachnology. Yea, you guessed it, CERN is talking to Musk about using that technology to bore the tunnels for its new mega-collider (thanks to the individual who sent this story, who wishes to remain completely anonymous):

Elon Musk says he talked to CERN about building tunnels for its biggest ever particle collider

Now, you might recall that Musk's alleged new boring machines utilize electricity (so we're told) and that they are measurably faster than conventional boring machines. So it comes as no surprise that CERN's conCERN seems to be about the speed that they can build their new monster collider:

Musk said CERN's director, Fabiola Gianotti, talked to him about his tunnelling company potentially digging tunnels for a new particle accelerator, which would be four times larger than the (LHC). Musk's Boring Company is an infrastructure firm mostly focused on building new tunnels to ease traffic congestion.

Musk said the Boring Company could help save billions of euros.


Musk founded the Boring Company in 2016, and the company unveiled its first test tunnel in December, and its tunnelling equipment currently makes headway about 14 times slower than a snail— although Musk said at the launch party for the tunnel, "Aspirationally, we should be slightly faster than a snail."

As you might have guessed, this story sent my Suspicion Meter, if not into the red zone, then at least into the orange zone, with the occasional twitch of the needle into the really deep maroon zone, for I have a high octane speculation-as-suspicion here, and it requires reading between the lines. In the previous blog on Musk's boring machine (See MUSK'S NEW BORING MACHINE NOT BORING), I noted the following:

Elon Musk’s Boring Company recently completed a 1.25 mile tunnel in Los Angeles. In 2019, Elon Musk will start building a third generation all-electric tunneling machine which should be fifteen times faster. Currently, tunneling machines have about 20 meters per day speed. The third generation tunneling machine, Prufrock, will have a digging speed of about 300 meters per day.

In other words, and reading between the lines a bit in the present article, CERN is talking to Musk because:

(1) His new technology will save them money, largely in the form of labor costs, because

(2) it can bore much faster than conventional machines, and that means

(3) CERN is in a hurry.

All of this makes me wonder: why the big hurry to build an even larger collider operating at energies and with localized magnetic field strength we can only imagine? Well, if my whole admittedly wild speculations about CERN's machine are correct, and if there is indeed a hidden aspect to this project having little to do with particle physics and everything to do about manipulation of the planet, including, potentially, its magnetosphere in a series of "data correlation" experiments, then it may stand to reason that whatever experiments they were covertly running along those lines (if any), may have been successful, and the beta test (the current collider) is over, and now they need to scale it up to "full size."

Yea, I know, it's wild, but for the moment, I'm sticking with it. And it also makes me wonder, how deeply are they planning to bury this thing? And what's the composition of the rock they intend to embed it in? Interestingly enough, so far, there doesn't seem to be much information about these things, nor about the energies they intend to operate this new collider at, nor the magnetic field strengths that will be required...

See you on the flip side...


  1. I realize that referencing Elon Musk is good for business, but how many more lies does this guy have to tell before he is disregarded.

    Musk bought a couple of used tunnel boring machines and dug a short, shallow in LA. That’s it. For all the hype about the Chicago train tunnel, they don’t even have a contract yet and probably never will. It’s just hype and green wash for Rahm. The Boring Company has zero expertise and zero capability to manufacture tunnel boring equipment. We built the New York subway 100 years ago. Is anyone seriously impressed with a 1.25 mile long shallow tunnel?

    Musk’s entire empire is on the verge of collapse.


  2. I suspect cerns real purpose is its a giant antenna listening in on extraterrestrial signals or communications. Probably can broadcast signals as well throughout the solar system and beyond. It can also likely be used to produce powerful elf waves.

  3. they need a bigger CERN to undo the damage caused by the lesser CERN, then they will need a bigger one that the new one to undo it’s damage.

  4. Can’t help wondering about the already existing underground tunnel system here in the U.S. ??? How are the boring machines used back then different from what is being proposed now?

    Back in 1972, then 17 year old rocket scientist, David Adair was taken underground at Area 51 down a long corridor that followed the curvature of the earth with “lighting” that he could not understand.

    It seems we have to keep pretending we are learning something “new” when the same thing has already been in use for decades! ??? Just trying to understand!

  5. from all indications, musk is a front same as dat is bill gates, suckerberg and on. they’re the inQtel made zillionaires who stay on script and use and abuse the real brains in all their organizations. with musk it looks like it goes far enough that what tech they got has been handed to them (from the already decades ahead broken away civvies?). consider the source of musk’s wealth. all non-comptetive govt contracts or at least govt controlled contracts. all red tape has been removed for him. all risks of loss have been covered for him. the most telling aspect of musk is darpa’s trusting him to be their smiling spokesmodel on so many different civilian looking military projects. kinda expect his public image to get compared heavily to john galt.

  6. I think Dr. Farrell’s comment is spot-on. They’re “scaling up” for a reason; I suspect they’re shooting for creation of a black hole. Let us hope it doesn’t usher in actual “hell on Earth”.

  7. I am mainly curious about the ‘hurry’ aspect of super-CERN as regards our currently-wandering magnetic poles (sorry!) and the possibility of influencing where they ultimately come to rest. Imagine putting one of the magnetic poles directly over an opponent’s capital…

    “New record shows last flip of Earth’s magnetic poles happened quickly.”

    “Tracking Earth’s changing magnetic field using South African hut fires: Current weakening of magnetic field just looks like repeat of 1300s.”

    (On Musk, The Boring Company might find it very different digging through high-strength granite versus low-strength sedimentary rock or even mudstone. Caveat emptor… )

  8. The fiction department writes the articles we read.
    I wonder when they’ll using an autonomous AI
    to fill that role[if they haven’t already]?
    Musk is a front. The Bore machine is much, much more than what the AI algorithm parameters define.

    It will help save a few highly placed key stokes in the number’s file. A few bits which in the scheme of things is nothing; which in fact it springs from eternal[as long as the reserve currency status remains somewhat intact].

    If “we” knew;
    than the jig would be up
    and the war to stop them
    would set the world on fire?

  9. Do I detect the formation of a new Howard Hughes standing in the wings? The older Howard Hughes was into some interesting stuff–and paid a huge price for running off the reservation. I hope Musk learns from him–and from the company who gave us PROMIS, too. Some clients are not to be trusted.

  10. Something to do with the impending Grand Solar Minimum?
    (Professor Valentina Zharkova: The Solar Magnet Field and the Terrestrial Climate )
    According to Zharkova we’re in for interesting times real soon.

    It seems reasonable to me that the current collider performs multiple functions.
    Could one of those functions be some kind of shield? (pick your favourite event, from Carrington, to polar flip, to cosmic rays slipping past a dormant sun, to cosmic debris slipping around the sun, to a local sun flare/mini nova)
    Certainly, CERN is bent on producing magnetic fields that outclass the planet generated one.
