Will the Hadron Collider spawn a God consciousness?

The Hadron Collider

I am a Christian and believe that everything that happens to someone who really has dedicated their lives to Christ is for a reason. Nothing is by chance. Keeping this in mind, I was intrigued when my mother related to me that while she was picking out two books from the book shelf, a book written on ethics fell out, which captured her attention. Having read it before, she recommended I read it. A few months prior, we were discussing how sad it was that he was a New Ager and was falling for that lie. She drew my attention to a specific part of the book, in which the author wrote that he is intrigued with the idea that consciousness is a product of the Big Bang, the huge explosion which contained all of the matter that exists today. It suddenly struck me: Is that the purpose of the Hadron Collider? It is meant to create a new consciousness? Would this consciousness mean we can unite with the Great Consciousness, which some call God? Is the Hadron Collider an attempt to become God, the meaning of the numbers 666? 666 represents the Anti-Christ who will claim to be God, which is considered blasphemy. My uncle has alluded to this “God Consciousness” having told my mother that she, too, can become a Christ.

ETHICS

Ethics makes the distinction between right and wrong that demonstrates what humans ought to do in terms of rights, obligations, fairness or specific virtues. It refers to standards of obligation that compel us to abstain from wrong. Ethics demands that standards are honest, compassionate and loyal. It also refers to the right to have life, the right to freedom of injury, etc.

The question one must ask themselves is, “Do I pursue my own happiness or do I sacrifice myself to a greater cause? When a rational ethic approach is taken, one can organize their goals to achieve the most important values. Any deviation from ethics will compromise any ability to be successful.

THE HADRON COLLIDER

Before I can discuss the meaning of all this, I have to explain what exactly the Hadron Collider is and its purpose.

It is the world’s largest and highest energy particle accelerator situated in a 27 kilometer tunnel beneath the Franco-Swiss border near Geneva, Switzerland. This synchrotron is designed to collide opposing particle beams of either proton at an energy of 7 teraelectronvolts per nucleon. It aims to explain the fundamental questions of physics. One of the objectives to test for the existence of the hypothesized Higgs boson, a fundamental particle, which in theory gave mass to the universe after the Big Bang resulting in the creation of gravity and the formation of stars and planets, and new particles predicted by super-symmetry. It seeks to emulate the conditions last seen a trillionth of a second after the Big Bang. Providing it doesn’t create a black hole that will suck the earth in, even prompting two men in 2008 to pursue a lawsuit blocking the operation, researchers will then shift through the debris from these primordial recreations for clues to the nature of mass and new forces of symmetries of nature. Some of the questions hoping to be answered include:


  • Is the Higgs mechanism for generating elementary particle masses via electro-weak symmetry breaking actually realized in nature? The Collider will either demonstrate this or rule it out.


  • Are their additional dimensions as demonstrated by various models based on the string theory and can they be detected?


  • What is the nature of dark matter that accounts for 23% of the mass-energy of the universe?


  • Why is the fourth fundamental force that is gravity so many orders weaker than the other three?


  • Why are their seemingly violations of the symmetry between matter and anti-matter?

It was activated on the 10th September, 2008. The proton beams started to circulate in the main ring of the LHC but nine days later, the operations were stopped due to an explosion caused by helium gas. Operation resumed on the 20th November, 2009. Three days later, the first proton-proton collision was recorded.


On March the 30th, the first planned collisions took place between two 3.5 TeV beams, a record for the highest energy man-made particle collisions. The LHC will continue to run at half energy until the end of 2012 where it will resume in 2014.


It recently came to the world’s attention that Geneva scientists have detected a glimpse of the “Higgs boson”, also called the “God Particle”, but not sufficient enough to announce a full discovery. It is hoped that the hunt for the Standard Model explanation of the universe’s creation may be completed within a year.


"I think it would be extremely kind of the Higgs boson to be here," said Fabiola Gianotti, the scientist in charge of the Atlas experiment. "But it is too early. More studies and more data are needed. The next few months will be very exciting."


Experiments have already excluded wide ranges of masses first attributed to the Higgs boson.

COMMENTARY

This looks wonderful in theory. Key words like “success”, “compassion” and “happiness” instil in us that ethics is the way to mend the world. There is one glaring problem with this. Being ethical, or doing the right thing, may not only bring you failure but persecution as well. Being successful in this world means one may have to sacrifice what is right at some stage in their lives, which is contrary to what ethics teaches and that is no sacrifices need to be made. Why do we need to make these sacrifices? That is because the world is unjust and evil and to be successful according to the world’s standards, you will have to cast off ethics at some stage.

It is a given that if you want to enter the entertainment industry, for example, that morals will have to be sacrificed to make you successful. Your managing team tells you how to dress, how to dance and what to promote. A person with a conscience may protest at first if it is distasteful but will relent if it means losing a record deal.

You may be in business and will seek contacts with those who are unscrupulous in their conduct but will make you climb the corporate ladder. Think of those in the past who stood for what is right and you will realize that many were put to death.

In a perfect world, ethics would make you successful if you stick to the rules. However, in a perfect world, there would be no such thing as ethics because there would never be a wrong opposed to a right. Therefore ethics could never be applied as a moral standard for everything has an opposite.

Ethics scholars are very well aware that evil exists but they all fail to explain where it came from.

Referring back to the theory that consciousness is a product of the Big Bang, it begs the question to how one can alter the result of a Big Bang which is currently in operation to attempt to emulate it. If good and evil exists, then is that not a natural product from the Big Bang? If the emulation is successful, would not good and evil still exist? How then can man’s innate nature be overcome? All the ethics in the world cannot change what man is: a being capable of evil. In order to create a consciousness that omits evil, a creation of a Big Bang that does just that will have to be created that is clearly different to the one Scientists accept. We know that the Hadron Collider is attempting to replicate the Big Bang as we know it EXACTLY and not create a new one. And the conundrum continues in that evil is just a fact of life. So how can we get past this insurmountable problem?

First we need to examine if consciousness can be a product of the Big Bang, which the latter is not a foregone conclusion, or just wishful thinking?

CONSCIOUSNESS

Consciousness is an enigmatic thing. Nobody actually knows how it came to being. It truly must be conjecture? How can a group of molecules in the brain create consciousness, people with the ability to love and hate and make decisions that can make history?

Scientists attempt to answer these questions describing Epiphenomenalism. This is the view that mental events stream from physical events in the brain. They explain that behaviour is caused by muscles that contract once receiving a signal from the brain. These neural impulses are generated by input from other neurons or sense organs. Mental processes are not causal but merely the result of brain waves.

Neuroplasticity, which is the brain’s ability to reorganize itself by creating new neural connections throughout life, can be used to compensate for injury and adjusts activities in response to new situations or changes in the environment. Although interesting in itself, further research through brain imaging experiments show that a new brainwave pattern was created in RESPONSE to meditation. When the meditator reached a blissful state of consciousness, a Gamma brainwave pattern was shown in the frontal lobe. It was a brainwave unique to other non-pathologically states. The meditation had altered brain function.

DOES CONSCIOUSNESS COME FROM GOD?

Many times a non believer says that science has not proven God. However, does a supernatural entity or science best explain God? We know that everything that has come into existence was put into place by something already existing. We know that, according to the Big Bang theory, everything that was ever to exist was compressed in one finite point just before the Big Bang. The problem with this is that there is a starting part. There was a time that the universe didn’t exist, so what was there already existing that initiated the Big Bang?

The multiverse hypothesis theorises that the universe is just one Big Bang among a number of infinite simultaneous expanding Big Bangs that spread over endless distances. Each universe is either matter or antimatter with an equal number of existences at the same time. When they expand, they collide and matter and antimatter is destroyed releasing energy. Then those universes would die as entropy increases and new universes would be born. The chain reaction of Big Bangs would continue to expand as the Big Bang fuel is consumed. If the multiverse is open and the fuel infinite, then the chain reaction will never cease. Nobody knows for sure what the fuel is but one can surmise that matter and energy is the product of a transformation of a real reactant. The Higgs boson may be it.

Then the question is what existed before these multiverses? It is alright to theorise that there is no real end to universes and that they are just reborn, but what was the original initiator that produced all these multiple universes? So with either scenario, it must be conceded that something immaterial must have caused the start of all matter since matter is only a product of the Big Bang or Big Bangs. What could explain this? Only something supernatural. We know that energy cannot be destroyed or created, only transferred. Therefore there must have been energy independent of the matter that resulted from the Big Bang and that energy is God.

Ironically, it appears as if science does prove God, indeed.

APOTHEOSIS

The theory of evolution is quite different to what the layman thinks it is. We believe that we evolved from a primitive race, the Neanderthals. However, occultists believe that it means the evolution of man into God in the form of unification with the Omniscient. W.L Wilmhurst writes in his book, "The Meaning of Masonry"

“This - theevolutionof man into superman - was always the purpose of the ancient Mysteries, and the real purpose of modern Masonry is not the social and charitable purposes to which so much attention is paid, but the expediting of the spiritual evolution of those who aspire to perfect their own nature and transform it into a more god-like quality. And this is a definite science, a royal art, which it is possible for each of us to put into practice; whilst to join the Craft for any other purpose than to study and pursue this science is to misunderstand its meaning.”

“Man who has sprung from earth and developed through the lower kingdoms of nature to his present rational state, has yet to complete hisevolutionby becoming a god-like being and unifying his consciousness with the Omniscient - to promote which is and always has been the sole aim and purpose of all Initiation.”

TRANSHUMANISM

Have you ever wondered how this new consciousness is to come about? There appears to be an agenda to merge robot with man, which could insinuate that man can live much longer than his average 70 years. A report from an NSF symposium held in December 2001 outlines new technological possibilities:

“Brain-to-brain interaction,” “human machine interfaces,” “personal sensory device interfaces,” “war fighter systems,” and a mysterious system called “the Communicator” which, in due time, “will remove barriers to communication caused by physical disabilities, language differences, geographic distance, and variations in knowledge.”

Does that mean a new consciousness can be downloaded by machine? Can we become rocket scientists by just downloading the knowledge and skills from a computer? We already have medical marvels now and on the horizon.

American Tim Hemmes, 30, broke his neck in a motorcycling accident and became paralysed. He received a bionic arm, which responded to his thoughts. Another paraplegic could take a few steps when a surgically implanted device electrically stimulated his spine.

This can turn into a Frankenstein. If we are given a new consciousness, what is stopping the programmer from programming our behaviour against our will? In fact, would that not be the end of free will? The report likes to claim that this will mete out violence in humanity and will result in world peace. Quote from the report:

“…humanity [will] become like a single, transcendent nervous system, an interconnected ‘brain’ based in new core pathways of society”—a state which some contributors call “hive mind.”

Mere ants, this sounds like. Is this want they mean by become one of the Omniscient? People proudly boast, or blasphemously to the religious, that they, too, could perform miracles like the lame being able to walk. In the age of Science, God has no place and the Age of Reason will replace the age of religion.

One of the report writers, Warren Robinett, expressed some concern. Musing on the nature of the soul, he asks: “What is it that makes youyou? Is having the traditional body necessary to being human?”

This is a fleeting thought for him. He thinks immortality is attractive.


This is transhumanism.

2012

People are on the edge of their seats and biting their nails in anticipation of the date 21 December, 2001. Will this be the end? Will the earth be destroyed? According to the Mayans, whose calendar comes to an end on that date, this is not so. They, and the Hopis, think that it will be the end of a World Age and not the end of the world.

The Mayan Calendar is a prophetic calendar that aids us in understanding the past and future events, which ends the 5, 125 year Great Cycle. It also the end of the 26 000 year Precession of the Equinoxes cycle. It describes how the progression of Heavens and the Underworlds condition the human consciousness and even our thoughts and actions within a certain age. Therefore the New Age will bring in another shift of consciousness. This is called the “Nine Wave”.

Before the Ninth Wave, there was the Seventh Wave that started in 1755 and brought an endarkened unity consciousness to mankind. The Nine wave also brings about a unity in consciousness but this time it is enlightened. Both waves started with revolutions to topple existing systems. In 1755, there was the American and French evolution. I predict that the Ninth Wave will result of the fall of current governments in favour of a world government under the guise we can rule ourselves.

New Agers believe that the Oneness field of consciousness will exclude an economic system where they have the power to print money, which dominates our lives. We shall be free of human rule and will rather be guided by a divinity, they say. All existing systems will fade away, like religion, banks and government.

The Mayan’s inscriptions reveal that at the end of their calendar, a nine-step entity will appear called Bolon Yookte. Through this figure, the nine cosmic forces and non wave movements will merge and this is how he manifests himself.

WILL 2012 BRING ABOUT A CATASTROPHE?

I recently learnt that the Mayan Calendar is divided into Seven Ages of Man and that there is a correlation with this and the seven days God created the earth, according to Genesis. The forth era ended on August 1987. According to the Seven Ages of Man, come December 2012, there will be a huge catastrophe. Only a few people will survive. In the fifth age, humanity will realize their spiritual destiny and in the sixth age, people will realize they are God and in the seventh age, we shall be omniscient.

It fascinates me that there is so much belief that man will become God and will rule themselves, but does everyone share this view? Not at all. Freemasons and New Agers believe they will receive Christ Consciousness but that they will not govern themselves but will rather be governed by Lucifer. They actually consider themselves to be subordinates under the dominion of Lucifer. I will give you two examples of this:


“No one will enter the New World Order unless he or she will make a pledge to worship Lucifer. No one will enter the New Age unless he will take a Luciferian Initiation.”


David Spangler, Director of Planetary Initiative, United Nations

Would you worship Lucifer to receive a new consciousness and attain immortality? Or does being more human way more important to you?

@Claire Evans: You have been unfailingly polite in all of our interactions, and I hope that this trend continues, despite the many opportunities for disagreement that I detect in this hub.

I don't believe that anything happens by chance, but neither do I believe that anything happens by grand design. I don't believe in any type of karma or fate. I believe that the world that exists today exists because it is the only world that had the potential to exist. If another world had been possible, we would be living in it.

I don't believe in revelation, or inspiration (whether via the Holy Spirit or some other agency). I don't believe in the supernatural in any form, nor in spirits, gods, djinns, or demons. I believe that natural science provides answers superior to all others (assuming that the question falls within the scope of science).

I disagree that consciousness and morality necessarily have anything to do with each other. I don't believe that Albert Pike was a Luciferian. I believe that consciousness/mind is a consequence of the anatomy and physiology of the brain, nothing more. I don't believe that consciousness has anything to do with the "Big Bang."

You conflate so many things here that I am at a loss to unravel them all. Why do the fantasies of occultists have any relevance? Why do you bring the Mayan calendar into this? Why do you give us a bogus quote from David Spangler?

Claire, an obviously well thought out hub and interesting to explore. I am of a different persuasion, but it's always enlighting to read other's opinions because it's all a marvelous journey, isn't it?

@Chasuk - love your comments here - I have to start following you. I'm of the same mindset, and it feels less lonely to find others who are.


Chasuk 4 years ago

@KatyWhoWaited: Thank you for your kind words. I feel lonely sometimes, too. Comradeship is important.

I simultaneously hope that we are entering a new Age of Enlightenment, and despair that we are entering a new Dark Ages. :-)

I'll check back January 2013 to see if you are still here. You've made a prediction just like the Witnesses have done. You don't want to go to heaven with money so on December you should put all your money into my paypal account. You don't need to wait for December you can send the money now if you like. There's a sucker born every minute.

I most certainly do not believe the world is coming to an end in 2012. I was describing what the Seven Ages of Man was supposed to mean. It is not my opinion.

Since it is ambiguous, perhaps I should revise it.

I'm glad to was brought to my attention.

We are at the lower end of the higher ages.

If the Atlantans blew themselves up, perhaps we. who have reincarnated from that period, fear it happening again. Our thoughts do not have to dwell on destruction to the extent that they are. Our thoughts can dwell, instead, on finding practical answers to problems. Our strength lies in the fact that we are not figments of our own imaginations.

Claire Evans 4 years ago from South Africa Author

Hi, Kathryn. For how long has humanity been around with no progress in nature? No amount of seeking practical answers to problems help because there are evil ones always there to sabotage it.

You have a good imagination. You should wright science fiction.

The Higgs field has been confirmed meaning that the standard model of physics is feeling very good about itself right now.

Just curious but how in the world do you propose that a particle accelerator could become conscious?

I'm sure you can come up with something which is why I think you missed your calling. Conspiracy theories are lame, but science fiction is fun


Claire Evans profile image

Claire Evans 3 years ago from South Africa Author

I don't believe that a particular accelerator could become a conscious. I'm writing about the theory that it can.
