This article I found in the links to an article that someone sent me, and it's all the way into the "apocalypse" end of the "whopper doozie" category, as a quick reading of the article will demonstrate:

Scientists Directly Manipulated Antimatter With a Laser In Mind-Blowing First

Before we dive into the implications of the article, first consider what it has to say about matter-antimatter reactions:

Because they are equal but opposite forms of matter, particles and antiparticles spectacularly annihilate each other when they collide, a reaction that creates byproducts that can be detected in laboratories and that prove antimatter does exist.  

Indeed, what I've stated before about matter-antimatter reactions should be borne in mind: they are total annihilation reactions. In other words, imagine one had managed to accumulate 25 kilograms of anti-matter and keep it contained, and then suddenly brought that 25 kilograms of anti-matter into contact with 25 kilograms of ordinary matter. The result would be an annihilation reaction that would make the world's largest-ever hydrogen bomb - Russia's "Tsar Bomba" with an enormous yield of 57 megatons - look like a firecracker.

So with that as the context, now consider what the article says. Firstly, it states that this most recent achievement was accomplished under the auspices of CERN:

The milestone was achieved by the Antihydrogen Laser Physics Apparatus (ALPHA) project, an international collaboration based at European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) in Geneva. For team members like Makoto Fujiwara, a researcher at the University of British Columbia’s TRIUMF laboratory and the spokesperson for ALPHA-Canada, the new study is the culmination of decades of imagination and grit.

This, for me, is a significant admission, because I've long speculated that the enormous expense invested in CERN throughout the decades of its existence was not simply about proving abstruse notions about theoretical physics; that expense to me represented and represents an ultimately military purpose, and anti-matter (with its potential link to anti-gravity and planet-busting weapons) would certainly be worth the investment.

Now we come to the stunner:

When the first antimatter atoms were generated at CERN during the 1990s, they only existed for a tiny fraction of a second, far too short a period to examine them in detail.

By 2011, however, CERN had pioneered a technique that trapped antihydrogen atoms for a record 1,000 seconds. Fujiwara, who was a co-author of that study, saw this as the breakthrough that could one day make laser-cooling of antimatter particles a reality. This advance could dramatically slow down experimental antimatter atoms from speeds of around 300 kilometers per hour (186 miles per hour), which would allow for more precise observations—and even manipulation—of this bizarre entity.

“Of course, at that time, people kind of laughed at it,” Fujiwara said. “Because it's such a difficult thing to do, everybody knew. In particular, the laser that was required for antihydrogen-cooling is known to be tremendously difficult. So at that time, it was kind of a pipe dream.”

Despite the intimidating obstacles, Fujiwara was encouraged by a conversation about the topic with Takamasa Momose, another UBC physicist with expertise in laser-cooling, whom he just happened to bump into at a UBC cafeteria. Momose was optimistic that this specialized instrument could be built, and joined the ALPHA collaboration to lead the development of the laser.


In this cold and slowed-down form, the laser light can actually manipulate the antihydrogen, meaning that the antimatter can be controlled and moved with unprecedented precision, allowing researchers to make new observations of its odd properties and behavior. (Boldface emphasis added)

As if that's not enough, the article also goes on to suggest something else:

The team also hopes to examine other open mysteries, such as the matter asymmetry problem or antimatter’s unknown interactions with gravity: that latter line of research that could provide a novel test of the equivalence principle in Albert Einstein’s theory of general relativity. (Boldface emphasis added)

In other words, anti-matter might be a path to the control and manipulation of gravity, as well as being a potential new energy source. Why is this so? If Einstein is correct, then anti-matter would simply be another source of mass; x amount of anti-matter will produce the same gravitational effect as x amount of matter without consideration of the opposite charge (spin or rotation) of the particles involved (that's not actually the equivalence principle in its formal version but it will do for our purposes here). If, on the other hand, there is some sort of coupling effect between gravity and electro-magnetism as others have argued, then there might be some detectable difference . This is not the place to get into all the tests of the equivalence principle, all of which, let it be noted, have involved matter, not anti-matter.

But beyond that wild and woolly speculation, there is a chilling implication to the article.

Suppose, for a moment, that one were some sort of modern-day mad scientist, a modern-day Dr. Strangelove or General Kammler, and one wanted to make an anti-matter bomb. What would be the necessary steps along the technology tree to do so? One would first (1) have to create the anti-matter, then (2) invent a method for its safe containment and storage in large amounts, which implies (3) the ability to store and manipulate it for a prolonged period of time.

If one looks at the article carefully, all three key areas of that technology tree are now extant, though rudimentary form. In other words, scientists have been able to collect not just particles of anti-matter, but now whole "anti-hydrogen" atoms, and control and manipulate them for about 16 minutes, not mere fractions of a second.

The article suggests that all this is very exciting, and may even upset the standard models:

To that point, the ALPHA team plans to continue improving the technique so that they can test out fundamental predictions that antimatter is identical to matter, except for its charge. If they find any other deviations in the antihydrogen particles, it could hint at the existence of new and mind-boggling physics beyond the well-corroborated Standard Model.

I share their excitement, except that I'm certain that my excitement is of a very different character... call it a kind of Weltangst...

See you on the flip side...

    One might take into consideration the Fusion Containment Engine that Rocket Scientist, David Adair, invented as a teen. Because of his knowledge, he was taken to Area 51 to examine a huge one that was concealed underground back in the 70’s.

    As with everything in our Fake World….what drives everything is $$$ & how to get the next grant!! Hopefully, this Fake World is coming to a fast close & we can get back to being Human Beings who care about each other!! 😉

    Visions of Wile E. Coyote zipping along on a rocket, catching up to the antimatter so he can observe it and manipulate, only to get his face blown off. It’s funny when it happens to Wile E. Coyote because it’s only him getting hoisted on his own petard. But with antimatter, it seems that the consequences may be more expansive and potentially more deadly than a Chernobyl, or a containment breach at a biohazard lab releasing an air transmissible Ebola-like virus. A what point does loss of containment of antimatter go from snap-crackle-and-pop in your cereal bowl to the Big Oops und Kaput. Given the nature of humankind and our inability to contain the worst impulses of those all too willing to kill others, how can we hope to contain those who, down the road, may gain access to Kaputsky amounts of antimatter.

    The psychology of Plato’s Cave is, that the ego dies, when confronted with its own shadow, the Black Knight. That is called “ego death”.

    Ego death is an “antimatter” explosion, and collapse of narrative. Beyond the rim of the persona, there is a vast, empty nothingness.

    Terrifying at first, the Black Knight gradually becomes a part of one’s being. In alchemy, it is called prima materia, trod under foot.

    In the Holy Writ, it is the sixth seal, the Black Sun, and, in Indo-Scythian (Sanskrit), it is “Yama”, meaning death.

      Pope Satan is mass murderer, hiding in plain sight, who has taken shape of the shadow being cast, by the collective body.

      Jesuit devils are legion, shadowing any man standing. Turning away, from the shadow’s grip, is “epistrepho”, to turn around.

      Satan, meaning adversary in Hebrew, is the antimatter of shadow. It is an attempt, to bring Antichrist in to the world.

      Chemical catholicism is Satan’s vaccine, under your skin. It is mass murder, as gradual genocide.

  4. zendogbreath on July 21, 2021 at 10:42 pm

    Perhaps past and current genocides and democides have me jaded. This narrative smacks of magic and misinformation. Feels like everything we see that does not find Fauci n Gates n Pfizer n a long list of others sleeping in a cell made for 2 in the foulest prison for daily public viewing is pure misinfo n distraction n a variation on hopium’s Operation Trust.

    But this brings up the question how far along are the scientist in making and controlling ant-matter. This is only what they are admitting to how far along are they that is in the dark. And who is in control of this technology?

    • DanaThomas on July 22, 2021 at 2:40 am

      Yes, who is ultimately in control of “CERN”? This could be one of those unanswered questions for a quarterly wrap-up.

    I’ll never comprehend how scientists and reporters can write about this kind of research as if it were a triumph of human civilization rather than something more akin to the pinnacle of suicidal insanity.

    In one’s opinion, there’s still an issue with size of the so-called universe. Perceptivity of this up right simian type remains limited however large the talking hype behind monstrous breakthroughs attributable to the European Organization for Nuclear Research or Centre Européen de Recherche Nucléaire, or Conseil Européen pour la Récherche Nucléaire, or just CERN (there’s no wonder why they just refer to it as CERN, must be a border thing with translations), and that Large Hadron Collider (LHC).

    In one’s view, this expensive business still needs to be downsized to a manageable size that accounts for demonstrable repetition, is easily conversed, and is measurable toward safe efficacious use for the billions put into it rather than a militarized smoke screen of conspiracy theories. Right now, that is all that is had with each announcement – theories and hypotheticals with scant usage. Quite the money sink.

    This malleable planet of a speckle in the grander cosmos probably already has what’s needed of anti-anything to maintain a material and corporeal presence without disappearing entirely. It’s just not witnessed. Unless there’s some form of dimensional portal it conjures with the correct and balanced harmonic frequencies (probably very significant) needed to maintain some form of stability. That begs the question, “What is [out there] that the Others know better about?”

    The scientists longtime goal – “The properties and the equivalence of matter and antimatter is deeply connected to the foundations of our physical understanding of nature.”

    Nickola Tesla “The day science begins to study non-physical phenomena, it will make more progress in one decade than in all the previous centuries of its existence.”

      Folks still wonder what Nikola Tesla was on about when 3 6 9 was referenced.

      • Allen S on July 21, 2021 at 6:21 pm

        And / or combinations thereof.

        • Allen S on July 22, 2021 at 7:17 am

          P.S. also interesting: However you multiply 3, 6, 9… It always reduces back to 9 – in some circles said to represent Completeness.

          3x6x9 = 162 … adds to 9
          3×6 = 18 … adds to 9
          3×9 = 27… adds to 9

          Over the decades, intermittently, have played around with associated square roots, powers, percents of total (e.g., 1), associated graphs – vectors, circles, etc. No major insights on my part, but in these stressful times (seems to be a universal constant), have accumulated a pile of interesting drawings as well. Most of all frequently induced moments of peace and serenity. Have read every bio I could find regarding Tesla – multiple times. Interesting tie-ins with recent national and domestic events and associated shenanigans. But as to the numbers themselves: Calm, centered peace.

    Evil shadow does not thrive, in presence of good light, and a containment chamber, full of devils, will explode, when angels blow trumpet.

    All empires are houses full of devils, and the Scythian trumpet is an empire killer. The dynamics of the trumpet is paradoxical.

    The seventh seal broken is a silent trumpet, that symbolizes unrestraint of consciousness, that allows the thought, to travel any path.

    The self-restraint of Isaacs – on the altar – is yokes of paradoxes, exploding, into creation of martial art:

    How many anti-matter weapon laboratories are there?
    Or, how many anti-matter weapons have been developed and deployed.
    Anytime the controlled anti-freedom press delivers the goods:
    beware of countless trojan “truths” soldiers marshalling the narratives.
    To today’s blog.

    “An anti-matter explosion can be detected by a laboratory”:
    no longer of this Earth.
    An antimatter explosion of X kilograms can be detected by the Moon:
    no longer w/an Earth.

      As a long observer of the use of the terms loose and lose, in the context above I would favor a way of shoe horning the latter. I.e., in reference to the mad ones who seem to be currently running the show. Perhaps only a pipe dream.

    “This writing being regarded as treason, Collingbourne was sentenced to brutal execution by hanging, followed by drawing and quartering while still alive. Of his punishment, English historian John Stowe wrote, “After having been hanged, he was cut down immediately and his entrails were then extracted and thrown into the fire, and all this was so speedily done that when the executioners pulled out his heart he spoke and said, ‘Oh Lord Jesus, yet more trouble!'”

    “Suppose, for a moment, that one were some sort of modern-day mad scientist, a modern-day Dr. Strangelove or General Kammler” … suppose? If the past year and a half has taught us nothing, it’s that the people funding such research could care less about advancements to benefit humanity. I can’t imagine we’re simply at a higher level of intimidation as far as the military use goes, and there’s no recovery from this type of weapon. My best hope is with their “high-precision” technology it won’t be so “non-destructive” and they’ll accidentally annihilate their own labs. My sincere regrets Dr. Strangelove and General Kammler.

  13. Wu Wu on July 21, 2021 at 7:19 am

    Periodic magnetic structures, such as undulators, could conceivably be used as part of the containment, for example the DTU Project( the SIRIUS DELTA-type Polarizing Undulator) at CERN, which is a large ‘out-of-vacuum’ pure permanent-magnet device composed of four( phased???) arrays of magnetic Bd.Fe.B.
    Could this be at all connected to the newly produced 8T magnets out of Whopperdooziefornia?
    As for storage, a SR-FEL synchrotron would perhaps do nicely. They come in miniature now, too; antimatter takeaway.
