You can file this one under the "Au merde!" category, which as regular readers of this website know, is several orders of magnitude much more serious than the "Oh wow!" or the "Whopper Doozie" categories, and as one might expect, I fully intend to take a running wild leap off the utterly crazy end of the twig of high octane speculation and plunge to the depths of the canyon below like Wile E. Coyote. The only thing missing from today's cartoon is an ACME Guaranteed Home & Hearth Hadron Particle Accelerator, and even then, I get the creepy feeling that one of those may be involved somewhere along the way. This very disturbing article was found and passed along by A.C.M., who doubtless immediately understood its significance and why it should be passed along.

Read it carefully, because behind the bland scientific reporting of what has been done,  doubtless quite a few people involved with the project were having their very own private au merde! moment.:

Oh good, scientists have produced the first experimental evidence of vacuum decay.

Now, in case you missed what all the excitement (and dread) is about, ponder the following:

False vacuum decay is when a not-stable state turns into a true stable state, though In general, there’s a lot we don't understand about how this bubble formation works, especially experimentally. Now, a group of Italian experimentalists and British theoreticians have produced the first experimental evidence of vacuum decay.

"Vacuum decay is thought to play a central role in the creation of space, time, and matter in the Big Bang, but until now there has been no experimental test," explained Ian Moss, Professor of Theoretical Cosmology at Newcastle University. "In particle physics, vacuum decay of the Higgs boson would alter the laws of physics, producing what has been described as the 'ultimate ecological catastrophe'."

So what did the Italian scientists do?  They made everything ridiculously cold:

For the first time, scientists have observed the bubbles forming in a controlled atomic system. The analogous setup they used for the false vacuum scenario was a supercooled vapor at a temperature less than a millionth of a degree from absolute zero. This is a metastable state, which means that it's not the most stable configuration but it could stay like that for an indefinite amount of time. You can picture it as a little valley on the side of a hill. The lower energy state is at the bottom but this little dent could work for a while.

In quantum mechanics, things don’t even have to have the extra energy to get out of the little valley. They can simply tunnel and decay to the lowest energy state. In the analogous setup, thermal effects work similarly, leading to the formation of a bubble. The bubble expands leading the system into its lowest energy state, akin to the true vacuum.

"Using the power of ultracold atom experiments to simulate analogs of quantum physics in other systems—in this case, the early universe itself—is a very exciting area of research at the moment," co-author Dr Tom Billam, also at Newcastle, added.

Note that the decay has been demonstrated; what they're trying to do by continued experiment is to obtain a more accurate measure of the phenomenon. And with more accuracy comes, inevitably, greater ability to control and manipulate it.

Let that sink in.

If "vacuum decay" is "thought to play a central role in the creation of space, time, and matter" in "the Big Bang", then actually reproducing vacuum decay is another way of saying you just demonstrated zero point energy; and the demonstration itself is a proto-technology, a first step, to manipulating and controlling it, and, if you paid close attention, that manipulation by the nature of the case is already weaponized.  As I've said in similar contexts before, such an ability makes the largest fusion bomb look like a firecracker in comparison.

The question now is, what other types of quantum effects will be observed to emerge?  And will those, in turn, be manipulable?

But in the meantime, permit me to offer a half-hearted viva Italia... the step just taken was, to quote someone wildly out of context, a small one for the men involved, but a giant leap for humanity...

... a leap that could, truly, be right into the abyss.   Time will tell, of course, and the experiment remains to be replicated and the results analyzed and the interpretation concurred with by other scientists.  But even if such replication and concurrence should not be forthcoming, a major leap was just taken.

See you on the flip side...

    it goes.

    I hate to be the one to break it to you, but there is no such thing as a vacuum. At. All. Period.

      True. That is why Khôra, as an idea, is the ideological vacuum, outside the circumscribed reality, when the world is seen as an idea, which – in turn – becomes “mind over matter”.

      Therefore, bending the world, to man’s willpower, becomes an invocation, when standing inside the compass idea. It is basic grimoire, summoning the forces of nature.

      All poetry is a conjuring incantation, when spirit is given free rein, bypassing the ego, altogether, which clashes with the rim of reality, when staring into cosmic nothingness.

      Khôra is in the corner of the third eye.

      there can be ‘awareness of vacuity’
      in fact that is required, to be

    Total stasis is beyond the rim, and such a nihil is outside the system, and the Greeks connect that idea to Khôra – which is the idea of a primordial existence, outside the scope of the tangible, a hypothetical state of being, before coming into being.

    Khôra is the black velvet, in the corner of the eye, that both unravels reality, and gives birth to it, and Khôra is the black spider, the cosmic black sun, to whom realities are buzzing fireflies. Khôra is the uber-crone, the fat lady singing.

    The discipline of becoming, what is and was, transcends reality, which is a spectator sport, positioned outside reality itself, in Khôra, which is the superior ontology, beyond any epistemology, which is the alchemical endgame.

    Psilocybin mushrooms blow the mind, which is the point, as the ultimate rabbit hole experience.

      BTW, the Greeks speak of theoria, poiesis and praxis, which means viewer, doer and ideal doer, which in return produces the ideal doer of deed, the hero.

      This correlates, to dividing the rune sequence into four, triggered by the 2nd, 4th and 6th seals, resulting in Olam, inside the compass idea.

      The hero is the ritual act of self-sacrifice, which can only be produced, from a position, that is outside the system, challenging the fabric of reality.

      Heroes become bodhisattvas, outside the sundial karma wheel, in the vacuum decay, when Geronimo is off the reservation.

    But this brings up the question have they proved how the Universe will end or it have no beginning and will have no end?

      The vacuum of space is supposedly not empty. Virtual particles pop in and out of existence nearly instantly everywhere throughout it. Remember it’s called space-time by physicists and space and time are one entity according to them I believe. So the space-time of virtual particles from our scale of observation has them appearing to blink in and out of existence nearly instantly. From a comparable greater scale of observation our Universe will also appear to be a virtual particle popping in and out of existence nearly instantly because the scale of time is determined by the scale of the space. So what might that say about our Universe? It may be no more than a virtual particle among countless more alternative Virtual Universe Particles in the space-time vacuum of a greater scale alternative Universe much like our own. From our space-time scale, inside our virtual particle Universe scale of being, our Universe may appear to be billions of years old; and time may appear to flow slowly, but from much greater scales of space-time it appears to exist but nearly for a barely measurable instance.

        A judgement is not reality; it is just a simile, a virtual reality, an agreed upon reality, that has only validity inside an echo chamber.

        The source of female hysteria is caused, by lack of coherence, when confronted with reality outside judgement.

        Virtual realities are a Matrix, with rabbit holes, that allow particles to pop in, and out of the Holodeck simulation.

        The USA is a Holodeck simulation:

        We, the many-headed Troll of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Troll, establish Trolling, insure domestic Echo Chamber, provide for the common defence, promote the general Trollfare, and secure the Blessings of Trolldom to ourselves and our Troll spawn, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

    Nice article

    Breaking the 7th seal is a big bang, followed by a Buddha field, that is a vacuum decay. Been there, done that.

    Pinocchio is in a half-state, neither a stringed doll, nor fully a man, because sectarians wear horse blinders.

    Vatican followers can only speculate, about what is beyond their sectarian grasp, guarded by a flaming sword.

    The 7th seal opens the scroll of the Grail runes, that stipulate Genesis, which is creational cosmology.


    When Pendragon wild, not tame,
    born of shadow and flame,
    killed off every fear
    crystal clear,
    he went before he came.

    When Pendragon was not there,
    he became fire everywhere,
    within dream awoken
    in action taken,
    throughout angelic sphere.

    When Pendragon did not yield,
    in final stand by shield,
    he rose victorious
    and hilarious,
    laughing in empty field.

      BTW, the Buddha field is a non-focal awareness, which is why angels sing on clouds, or, more precisely, they are the cloud itself, as a state of being.

      Once experienced, on psilocybin mushrooms, the liberated genie refuses to go back into the bottle, and Schroedinger’s cat is out of the bag, chasing mice.

      In Quackademia, one gets horse blinders for free, along with a slave collar, to pull the Vatican carriage, like a domesticised donkey named Pinocchio.

      Olam, inside the compass idea, of Black Elk’s Six Grandfathers, is quickly covered up, by the Rushmore jealousy tantrum of the Jesuit-Freemasonry.

      • anakephalaiosis on January 31, 2024 at 9:02 am

        BTW, European epistemology is superior, to American epistemology, whereas Scythian epistemology is superior to both, which is why a Crimean pilgrim resort is predictable, and why a Bering Strait crossing is a logical shortcut, for America to bypass Europe, which keeps the Assyro-Zionist Jerusalem out of the loop, and which is, why the Vatican is desperately pushing a Catholic crusade in the Ukraine.
