Large Hadron Collider - The Four Scenario-Horsemen Of The Apocalypse: Part II

Updated on November 27, 2009

Scenario Number Two

This scenario calls for the potential creation of strangelets, which is a type of particle with properties so bizarre that physicists couldn't come up with any better way of describing it than with that name. Let's just skip the Ph.D. course in quantum physics and have it suffice to say that these strangelets have a propensity for turning matter around them into similar strangelets until the result is a strange star. Honest, I'm not making this stuff up!

Interestingly enough such a strange or quark star would not have to be the usual stellar diameters of many times the size of the earth before it would begin its fiery stellar processes. Just a ball of strangelets a few feet across and the star process fires up! Unlike the black hole which sucks all matter around it into its chasm, the strangelets just convert all the matter around them into more strangelets. However, just like the black hole, once a strangelet accretion gets going, there is no way to stop it until it runs out of matter.

The strangelets which will be created by the Large Hadron Collider could theoretically begin a chain reaction where these subatomic partials would effectively turn this planet into a stellar object which would not be inhabitable by anything including human beings. If you think global warming is turning the surface of this planet hot enough, the temperature of a strangelet star is millions of degrees. We'd really have to crank up those air conditioners then! Yikes!

Scenario Number Three

This scenario considers the feasibility that the Large Hadron Collider would create magnetic monopoles: A magnet with only one pole that actually consumes protons. Told you this stuff was bizarre. These magnetic monopoles would have a similar chain reaction effect as it would change the actual structures of nuclear matter all around it and also not stop until the very atomic structure of every particle on the entire planet was changed.

Are we starting to see a trend here? The Large Hadron Collider creates a new particle which has as an integral part of its own essential nature a proliferation of quantum weirdness which wipes out the Earth. It is somewhat apropos that the inner workings of the Large Hadron Collider resemble the interior of a Borg Cube as the particles the contraption can create seem to embrace the very essence of the Borg: They will assimilate everything around them to fit their self-description of perfection... whether the ones getting assimilated like it or not.

We are the Borg / Strangelets / Monopoles / Etc. Lower your shields. Your distinctiveness will be added to our own. Resistance is futile.

But wait, it gets even better...

Scenario Number Four

The final scenario which is being proposed by quantum, nuclear, and astro-physicists includes the possibility that the Large Hadron Collider would produce a virtually unimaginable effect called a vacuum bubble. The concept of this vacuum bubble is even more bizarre than the other three scenarios, since the creation of a vacuum bubble would completely eliminate our entire state of matter replacing it with its own.

This vacuum bubble would grow to literally destroy the entire planet and expand outwards at the speed of light or even faster. The potential of a vacuum bubble to not be stopped in any way leaves the hypothesis that the vacuum bubble would eventually destroy the entire universe and it would all start from this location near the French and Swiss border. So the fourth scenario doesn't just call for the annihilation of the planet or the solar system or even just the galaxy. It would obliterate the entire universe!

Dang, not even the Borg could ever manage that, even with a planet full of Red Matter!
