Conspiracy theorists have been ramping up into hyperdrive after hearing the news that the Large Hadron Collider at CERN is set to be put into action once again.
In case you’re not already aware, the LHC – as we’ll call it from here on out – is set to start banging bits of matter together at almost inconceivable speed, the first time it has done so since 2019.
Obviously, this has created some pretty out-there theories, as you can see from the below video from a woman encouraging people not to drink and to keep their ‘vibrations high’ for the duration of the experiment.
The LHC was responsible for discovering the Higgs boson, a type of sub-atomic particle that has been referred to as the ‘God Particle’, although most physicists aren’t too keen on that title.
Now, CERN's boffins are turning it up to 11 and smashing more protons together in the hope of learning more about the building blocks of our universe.
It’s interesting – if unfathomable complicated – work.
As of today, it’s going to be working around the clock firing tiny bits of matter around a 27km loop under the Swiss/French border.
However - according to the sceptics – it’s also going to put people at risk of ‘falling behind’ as the universe is thrown into a ‘new timeline’.
In that TikTok video, the woman explained: “Do not drink. Keep your good vibrations high, surround yourself with positive energy during July 4th and 5th.
“I will tell you why.
“A lot of people think the last time CERN was turned on, we were shifted to a different timeline and reality.
"So it is very, very important you keep your vibrations high, because this time they’re going to be turning it on moving it much faster.
“It is power by negative matter, negative energy, any negative thought you’ve had gives power to this machine.
“I believe when this is turned on, there will be an actual shift, and people will be left behind for the next seven years.”
Of course, there is precious little evidence that this will actually happen, or that it is even possible.
In fact, CERN themselves commissioned research into whether the LHC could cause any potential issues back at the very beginning, and their crack team of scientists found that the machine poses no conceivable threat.
7am, PST tomorrow, CERN will be turned on, and we will once again be shifted to another reality. the last time this happened was 2012. it was a good 10 years boys, wishing you all luck into this new reality!— ❄️ 347Arctica🇫🇮❄️ (@InTheArctica) July 5, 2022
Dear @CERN— hobbestherapper (@calv1nxh0bbes) July 4, 2022
I know you're about to glitch the timeline again when you fire up ye olde LHC, so if you could do some mathematical wizardry and skip us to a less dystopian one this time, that would be fantastic.
Please and thank you.
Another armchair scientist posed the question: “Ok but do you think we are gonna jump into a parallel universe tomorrow when CERN turns on the machine again? (Last times were 2012 and 2019).”
Meanwhile, in the actual science, CERN director-general Fabiola Gianotti said: "The Higgs boson is related to some of the most profound open questions in fundamental physics today.
“This [latest use of the LHC] is a significant increase, paving the way for new discoveries.”
We’ll have to wait and see who is right, but the smart money should be on the particle physicists, you’d have to imagine.
