Portals and Possibilities | Advantages and disadvantages

There is a huge discussion on social media regarding July 5, 2022. On this date, CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, will launch the third run of its Large Hadron Collider. This machine went on hiatus for 3 years for upgrades and maintenance. The collider was built in 2008 and has conducted many experiments. In 2012, he was able to discover a rare particle called the Higgs particle. Scientists were so excited about this discovery that they dubbed the particle the “God particle”. For the July 5 period, the collider is expected to reach a new world energy record of 13.6 trillion electron volts (13.6 TeV) in some of its collisions. Basically, this acceleration will allow the collider to smash through billions and billions of protons for the chance to produce the Higgs particle as well as other particles they believe were created in the early universe.

Social media such as TicTok, YouTube, and platforms such as Reddit have had ongoing discussions and theories about what might happen as a result of this energy. The predominant claim is that a portal will open up, much like a black hole, and this will allow ‘dark matter’ to enter our field. We are therefore warned to avoid “low energy” on July 5th. Avoid controversy, avoid arguments, and avoid anything that might bring you down. Social media warns that people with low energy will suffer the most and start behaving erratically and possibly violently.

I wonder what else we can think about in this already crazy world we’ve been living in for two years. I never would have thought that I would have experienced a pandemic. I never imagined that our city would shut down for almost 12 months, with a very slow return to normal. In fact, we will never be the same again before 2020.

Finding out about this CERN event inspired me to research things I had never known before. The focus on the accelerated speed of the collider producing or perhaps discovering “dark matter” made me curious. According to NASA, dark matter is made up of particles that do not absorb, reflect or emit light, so they cannot be detected. Dark matter is material that cannot be seen directly.

So basically what they’re saying is that on the 5th of July this huge event is going to take place where there’s going to be an acceleration that’s never been done before, and it might eventually discover particles that we’ve never been able to identify before but have certainly been part of our world.

Ok, I’m interested. This event happens to have a director and screening of “Particle Fever,” and will be viewable online on July 3.

On July 4, a live webcast will continue the countdown to the big event. I’m not sure I’ll get into it. Instead, I’m going to pull out my book Chariots of the Gods, by Erich von Doniken. This book is a must read. It was written in the late 60’s and I think I’ve read it at least 12 times. This collider, portal, dark matter and black hole thing reminds me of this book. Chariots of the Gods is all about the mysteries of the world. How civilizations centuries ago were able to build things with great precision.

I once visited Chichen Itza, which is on the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico. I was able to climb the ruins and cross the incredible observatory called El Caracol. This planetarium, if you will, was built with such precise astrological knowledge that to this day scientists are unable to explain how such a primitive group as the Maya could have built it. All of its window openings track celestial bodies and have astrological significance. Also, the hieroglyphs in this area are astounding.

The hieroglyphics in the Copan Temple depict a modern space astronaut with flames and gases coming from his feet suggesting propulsion (of Chariots of the Gods.)

In Chariots of the Gods, there is a photograph of a hieroglyph that looks like a man in a spacesuit. The question is, how would such a primitive civilization know? To top it off, many historians cannot definitively explain what ultimately happened to the Maya. Some catastrophic events happened and wiped out most of them.

So what are you going to do on July 5? Most of us will be back at work that day. I think it’s good advice, anyway, to keep your energies high. No need to let that pesky black energy into your world.
