European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) scientists look at computer screens showing traces on the Atlas experiment of the first protons injected in the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) during its switch-on operation in 2008 near Geneva. It set a new

Once again, you da bomb, Lilith! I hope that this search for cosmic secrets will also unlock a way of sustaining fusion so we can use it for power. Or, at least help us find some other useful renewable power source.

Can we feed poor people with this secret?

Can we save Life on Earth?

Do we get any better with this secret?

Can we make money, food, shelter ... just anything useful with this?


But we idiots pay for it!

Thank you, Lilith-I find the experiments at CERN fascinating and the potential for corollary information to be gleaned, including insight into cold fusion, boundless.

Lilith, thanks for the post. I look forward to more from the learned folks at CERN and their quest for answers.

""100 Million Collisions Per Second" -- CERN's Large Hadron Collider Smashes Closer to Unlocking Secrets of the Universe. Why bother and how much did each of these 'collisions' cost?

I hope. But I do not think that man can find, the answer to the universe. I believe in one God.

So....ripping a hole in the time-space continuum. Sounds like a bad idea.

Why believe in only one god when there are so many to choose from Rolf?

Really interesting Thanks. I must say that on one hand, on an intellectual level, this is very fascinating, but on from another point of view, I agree with both Ralph and Rolf!! There are so many ways of looking at the same problem! I think that sometimes we tend to just read things without truly thinking them through and realizing that what WE think, is not always what OTHERS think, or necessarily RIGHT!! We learn from each other. So many of our ideas are formed from what we have just read or heard or is the product of our own stereotypical thinking. not from life experience There are often MANY answers to the same question and many ways of thinking. Realizing this makes us more tolerent towards other's point's of view and that is of the utmost importance as that is the catalyst for understanding and with understanding comes.. PEACE!

By the way David... I just read your last question to Rolf, and I don't know if he agrees with me, but I think the answer is.. if you find a wife who is loving and wise and kind and caring and fun-loving and faithful and fulfills all your needs and gives you MOUNTAINS of love, you do not bother to go out and search for another one. that is how we feel when we have found our God!!
