How CERN’s Large Hadron Collider Could Be Linked to Recent Earthquakes

In just the past two months, there have been thirteen earthquakes over 6.0 on the Richter scale. Some of these quakes were incredibly intense, namely that which occurred in Nepal that ranged from magnitude 6.6-7.8. The damage was enormous and the loss of life was in the thousands.  And most recently, a magnitude 7.1-7.5 rattled the island shores of Papa New Guinea, but thankfully has not caused nearly as much damage or injury.

What I find curious about all of this recent tectonic activity is that CERN in Geneva, Switzerland (Conseil Européen pour la Recherche Nucléaire, [French acronym]) or perhaps more commonly known in the States as The European Organization for Nuclear Research, has recently fired up its Large Hadron Collider (LHC) particle accelerator again, just before this unusual stretch of high-magnitude earthquakes began.

The LHC is the most powerful and largest particle accelerator on the planet and while the majority of the world of science considers it invaluable to making further discoveries about our universe, some scientists including Stephen Hawking are offering fair warning of the damage it can cause to the planet, humanity and even the time-space continuum. Read more on Hawking’s concerns about CERN here: https://rt.com/news/185876-universe-elimination-higgs-boson/

Just months after the discovery of the Higgs boson or the so-called “God Particle” in July 2012, CERN completed its first continuous run of the LHC which recorded around 5 billion collisions at an energy amount of 8 TeV (Tevatron scale). Only 400 of these collisions produced results even remotely compatible with that of the Higgs boson. (Source: https://press.web.cern.ch/press-releases/2012/12/first-lhc-protons-run-ends-new-milestone ).

Fast-forward to present day and they’ve nearly doubled the amount of collision energy to 13 TeV. The plan is to have the LHC do another run for 3 years continuously and this time CERN announced that their focus is to “capture dark matter” and on “the discovery of other dimensions”. While I am all for raising the awareness about our place in the universe and of course the working of quantum space dynamics to better grasp an understanding of ourselves, I feel that it should not come at the expense of Mother Earth or that we should go into this kind of science biting at our own tails.

Simply put, the Large Hadron Collider creates the biggest magnetic field on the entire planet, second to that created by the planet itself! It may seem only speculation linking the LHC to seismic activity, but we must take into consideration how magnetism on this grand of a scale affects the layers of the Earth.

Each time CERN forces a collision, the residue energy causes massive magnetic vibrations within the Earth, therefore in my opinion it would be naïve to not at least consider that this is not somehow contributing to all of the recent quakes. And these recent “coincidences” are not the first, either.  In 2010, mass LHC activity at CERN coincided with the 8.8 Chilean earthquake­, which was the 6th worst in our history.

I stand behind scientific exploration and furthering our knowledge of the workings of the Universe, absolutely. In fact, I live and breathe this stuff! I am what you would call a cross between a Quantum Physics nerd and a yoga-loving Jedi in training. But the fact remains that I hold true to the feeling in my gut that it’s more than mere coincidence in the timing of these earthquakes and the recent power up of the LHC. And I just hope that our thirst for knowing how small we can go into particles, doesn’t leave us in a self-created black hole somewhere on the outer edges of space …just saying. 🙂

The Fermi Paradox — Where Are All The Aliens?

Source: Kurz Gesagt – In a Nutshell

The universe is unbelievably big – trillions of stars and even more planets. Soo… there just has to be life out there, right? But where is it? Why don’t we see any aliens? Where are they? And more importantly, what does this tell us about our own fate in this gigantic and scary universe?

The Fermi paradox (or Fermi’s paradox) is the apparent contradiction between high estimates of the probability of the existence of extraterrestrial civilization and humanity’s lack of contact with, or evidence for, such civilizations. The basic points of the argument, made by physicists Enrico Fermi and Michael H. Hart, are:

  • The Sun is a typical star, and relatively young. There are billions of stars in the galaxy that are billions of years older.
  • With high probability, some of these stars will have Earth-like planets. Assuming the Earth is typical, some of these planets may develop intelligent life.
  • Some of these civilizations may develop interstellar travel, a technology Earth is investigating even now (such as the 100 Year Starship).
  • Even at the slow pace of currently envisioned interstellar travel, the galaxy can be completely colonized in a few tens of millions of years.

According to this line of thinking, the Earth should already have been colonized, or at least visited. But Fermi saw no convincing evidence of this, nor of signs of intelligence (see Empirical resolution attempts) elsewhere in our galaxy or (to the extent it would be detectable) elsewhere in the observable universe. Hence Fermi’s question, “Where is everybody?”




Can This DNA Hack Help You Stay Young Forever?

Source: DNews

Getting old is inevitable but can the key to staying young be in your DNA?

A study tying the aging process to the deterioration of tightly packaged bundles of cellular DNA could lead to methods of preventing and treating age-related diseases such as cancer, diabetes and Alzheimer’s disease, as detailed April 30, 2015, issue of Science.

In the study, scientists at the Salk Institute and the Chinese Academy of Science found that the genetic mutations underlying Werner syndrome, a disorder that leads to premature aging and death, resulted in the deterioration of bundles of DNA known as heterochromatin.

The discovery, made possible through a combination of cutting-edge stem cell and gene-editing technologies, could lead to ways of countering age-related physiological declines by preventing or reversing damage to heterochromatin.

Quantum Entanglement Verified: Why Space Is Just The Construct That Gives The Illusion Of Separate Objects

Editor’s Note: I wanted to take the time to explain the awesomely HUGE significance of this experiment a bit deeper as this finally gives us tangible proof of Quantum Entanglement! 

Traditionally, Quantum Entanglement involves a pair of initially independent particles and is usually tested through experiments of locality and observation such as double-slits. We’ve only done these tests on particles that had certain quantum states forced on them both (such as polarity) so as to make them entangled. We would then test how they reacted to one another at a distance. And then by observably recording the reaction of one particle after manipulating the other, we’ve gotten substantial correlative evidence to support Entanglement.

But what these tests were doing was merely recording the detection or lack of detection of the particles and that’s the deepest we’ve gone as far as actually being able to observe the collapsing wave function itself…until now. There was still so much debate on the validity of these tests due to so many variables, that left so many scientists skeptical and therefore they refused to accept quantum theory unless future experiments could close the loopholes mentioned here.

I wrote an article back in February about what I called “Entangled Triplets“.  The article was about how scientists had learned how we could actually have more than two entangled particles at once and also about the amazing way they had created them by splitting ONE photon repeatedly. It kind of opened the door to this latest experiment that has finally proven Entanglement as far as how we create entangled particles now (from one single particle, rather than forcing quantum states onto two separate particles).

Scientists were finally able to prove Entanglement because we now have the technology to do so (homodyne measurements and quantum tomography) to measure the actual non-local wave function collapse (simply put: opposite action) of a single particle (split into two quasi-particles) and reconstruct the origin quantum state (which IS the wave function). Long story short, they set each quasi-particle to have a quantum state of (0). They then forced a quantum state onto one of the quasi-particles (let’s stick with polarity, for example, and say they made it positive…another example could be spin or momentum).

With quantum tomography they read the state of the first particle and sent the reading to the other particle telling it to recreate the same quantum state. However, instead of becoming positive, it became negative in polarity, thus proving Entanglement (because it recreated the quantum OPPOSITE state – which they measured using the homodyne measurements). They actually did this with various quantum states and repeated the test over and over and got the same result/reaction.

This is also important because it violated Einstein’s steering inequality and proved quantum “steering” is possible. Which simply put means once we first set entangled particles to (0) and then set the quantum state of only one of them, we now have physical, verified proof of how the second one will react, just by knowing the state of the first. We could conclude this through correlative conclusions provided by previous Entanglement experiments, we just didn’t have THIS kind of proof to finally put any and all doubts to rest. Awesome! 🙂 – Tamara Rant

“Space is just the construct that gives the illusion that there are separate objects” – Dr. Quantum (see video below)

There is a phenomenon so strange, so fascinating, and so counter to what we believe to be the known scientific laws of the universe, that Albert Einstein himself could not wrap his head around it. It’s called “quantum entanglement,” though Einstein referred to it as “spooky action at a distance.”

An experiment devised by the Griffith University’s Center for Quantum Dynamics and led by Professor Howard Wiseman confirmed what Einstein did not believe to be real: the non-local collapse of a particle’s wave function. The findings were recently published in the journal Nature Communications (1)(2)

Wisemen stated that:

“This phenomenon is the strongest yet proof of the entanglement of a single particle, an unusual form of quantum entanglement that is being increasingly explored for quantum communication and computation.” (1)

They did this by splitting a single photon between two laboratories, and testing whether measurement of it in one laboratory would actually cause a change in the local quantum state in the other laboratory.  In doing so, researchers were able to verify the entanglement of the split single photon.

Wisemen went on to state that:

“Einstein’s view was that the detection of the particle only ever at one point could be much better explained by the hypothesis that the particle is only ever at one point, without invoking the instantaneous collapse of the wave function to nothing at all other points. However, rather than simply detecting the presence or absence of the particle, we used homodyne measurements enabling one party to make different measurements and the other, using quantum tomography, to test the effect of those choices.” (1)

Here is a great illustration from Dr. Quantum, as seen in the film “What The Bleep: Down The Rabbit Hole.”

So what is going on here? Either information is traveling faster than the speed of light, or, the vast distance we perceive between the objects really doesn’t exist at all! Either possibility is mind altering.

Take Your First Step Toward ‘Free Energy’: Hope Girl Speaks

By Hope Girl | *www.quantumenergygenerator.com

Editor’s Note: Free energy is an issue seldom talked about in mainstream media, but gets a fair amount of attention in alternative media. Energy is crucial for all of us and is one of our primary industries. It is easy to take it for granted, but the fact that it comes at a cost that seems to climb higher and higher each year, anyone might have the misfortune of being “turned off.”  Free energy could change that one day. Some of us have gotten disillusioned by reports that these devices do not work. Yet the reality, however, is that there are reportedly many thousands of working free energy machines out there; it is just not reported. Hope Girl is one of the important voices in this field. She and her team have been courageously trying to bring free energy into mainstream parlance & understanding to help us to see that, indeed, this is possible no matter – what you have been told. This video is a great introduction to this topic and you can download the 35-page open source plans at www.quantumenergygenerator.com. I will be posting more about this in the next couple of weeks.

Engineers Purify Seawater and Wastewater in 2.5 Minutes

A group of Mexican engineers from the Jhostoblak Corporate created technology to recover and purify seawater or wastewater from households, hotels, hospitals, commercial and industrial facilities, regardless of the content of pollutants and microorganisms in just 2.5 minutes.

The system, PQUA, works with a mixture of dissociating elements, capable of separating and removing all contaminants, as well as organic and inorganic pollutants. “The methodology is founded on molecularly dissociating water pollutants to recover the minerals necessary and sufficient in order for the human body to function properly nourished,” the researchers explained.

Notably, the engineers developed eight dissociating elements, and after extensive testing on different types of , implemented a unique methodology that indicates what and how much of each element should be combined.

“During the purification process, no gases, odors nor that may damage or alter the environment, human health or quality of life are generated,” said the engineers.

The corporation has a pilot plant in its offices that was used to demonstrate the purification process, which uses gravity to save energy. The residual water in the container is pumped to the reactor tank, where it receives a dosing of the dissociating elements in predetermined amounts.

In this phase, solid, organic and inorganic matter and heavy metals are removed by precipitation and gravity; a sludge settles at the bottom of the reactor. This is removed and examined to determine if it is suitable to use as fertilizer or manufacture construction materials.

Editor’s Note: As we approach the March Against Monsanto, occurring nationally and internationally on Saturday, May 23, 2015, there is some big news happening in the world of GMO’s: the following story, the gaffe heard ’round the world of GMO Advocate, Patrick Moore [See https://consciouslifenews.com/huge-turning-point-battle-against-pesticides-gmos/1182945/], and even a new book by Public Interest Lawyer, Steven M.

A World Health Organization group’s controversial finding that the world’s most popular herbicide “probably is carcinogenic to humans” was based on a thorough scientific review and is a key marker in ongoing evaluations of the product, the scientist who led the study said Thursday.

“There were several studies. There was sufficient evidence in animals, limited evidence in humans and strong supporting evidence showing DNA mutations … and damaged chromosomes,” Aaron Blair, a scientist emeritus at the National Cancer Institute, said in an interview.

Blair chaired the 17-member working group of the WHO’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), which rocked the agricultural industry on March 20 by classifying glyphosate as “probably” cancer-causing.

Monsanto Co , which has built a US$15 billion company on sales of glyphosate-based Roundup herbicide and crops genetically engineered to tolerate being sprayed with Roundup, has demanded a retraction and explanation from WHO.

Monsanto officials have accused the IARC group of relying on “junk science” and basing conclusion on politics rather than sound science. Company officials say glyphosate has been proven safe for decades.

“We are in the process of determining the best path forward,” Monsanto spokesman William Brennan said. “Monsanto would like to understand how this conclusion could be reached and how the IARC process differs from other scientific reviews.”

But Blair said Thursday the classification is appropriate based on current science. There have been hundreds of studies on glyphosate, he said, with concerns about the chemical growing over time. The IARC group gave particular consideration to two major studies out of Sweden, one out of Canada and at least three in the United States, he said.

Using a single particle of light, scientists have for the first time linked together thousands of atoms in a bizarre state known as quantum entanglement, where the behavior of the atoms would stay connected even if they were at opposite ends of the universe.

This finding, the largest number of particles that have ever been mutually entangled in an experiment, could lead to more precise atomic clocks, potentially helping to improve GPS, researchers say.

The behavior of all the known particles can be explained using quantum physics. A key feature of quantum physics is that the world becomes a fuzzy, surreal place at its very smallest levels. For instance, atoms and other fundamental building blocks of the universe actually exist in states of flux known as “superpositions,” meaning they can seemingly be located in two or more places at once. [5 of the Most Precise Clocks Ever Made]

One consequence of quantum physics is quantum entanglement, wherein multiple particles can essentially influence each other simultaneously regardless of distance. Einstein dismissed this seemingly impossible connection as “spooky action at a distance,” but numerous experiments have proven quantum entanglement is real, and it may serve as the foundation of advanced future technologies, such as incredibly powerful quantum computers and nigh-unhackable quantum encryption.

One key application of quantum entanglement is to enable extraordinarily precise atomic clocks, which are vital to GPS. “Today’s atomic clocks have reached an almost unimaginable level of accuracy — the best would be less than a minute off if they ran since the Big Bang,” study co-author Vladan Vuletić, a quantum physicist at MIT, told Live Science.
