The LHC is the first machine of the age of the singularity, when new advances on technology will create machines of energy (super-colliders) and information (nano-bacteria, A.I.) that vastly overpower the capacity of this planet and the human race to control them. It could produce black holes and strangelets, responsible for Nova explosion that could blow up the Earth, as earlier as 11/9 according to internal documents leaked from the Company, which expects to produce 500 strangelets per month, despite having denied adamantly in public and in Court under oath, such possibility. Now we have a ruling….
Why this case is a historic ruling.
And so finally the judges, who took more than a year to finish their ruling, made their decision (below, followed by our reply)…
In that regard, this suit is a landmark suit in the History of Law and Ethics for two reasons:
1) In first place because the Large Hadron Collider is the first machine of the Singularity Age, an age in which machines of energy and information are reaching such power that they can destroy the Earth.
Indeed, in Complexity, the science that studies the Universe with 2 arrows of ‘creation’, energy and information, not only with energy=entropy as Physicists do, in which I am considered a leading authority, we have a simple mathematical definition of the cycle of life and death, built with the 2 arrows of time, or primary elements of reality, energy and information:
We exist through a simple cycle, called the 3 ages of life: youth, the age of energy (Max. E x Min. I), maturity, the age of balance and reproduction (e=i), and the 3rd age of information (Max. I x Min. E), when we die. And by and large the maximal number of deaths happen in the age of information or among cubs full of energy that don’t understand the dangers of existence. The wisdom of life, understood since ancient times is therefore ‘mens sana in corpore sanum’, a balance without excesses of energy and information that kill us. And yet our civilization is so in loved with machines, the modern religion of mankind, that cannot help to build ever more powerful energetic machines and weapons, which kill our bodies; ever more complex Tvs, computers and robots which hypnotize and make our mind obsolete. We are indeed killing life with over-powerful machines. But since we believe in technology we cannot recognize that those machines are now displacing us from war and labor field as they step their evolution. The LHC in that sense has crossed a barrier never crossed before: a machine of energy that can kill all of us.
Death is an overdrive of energy (as in an accident or killed by a weapon) or an overdrive of information (the wrinkles and excesses of cellular form – cancers – of the 3rd age) that breaks the balances of an organism. In that regard the superorganism of Gaia, the Earth of life can also die by an overdrive of energy (if black holes or strangelets explode the Earth into a Big-bang, making a nova), or information (if future nano-robots get out of hand and their reproduction destroys the atmosphere, or super-intelligent robots substitute man as the top predator informative species in the planet). And so during the Age of the Singularity, humans are for the first time at existential risk, as we evolve energetic and informative machines who vastly overpower our own capacities. And one of the possible solutions to that problem is to forbid the creation of those machines through the legal system. Since the corporations and scientists that create those machines will never stop making them and find always a ‘good excuse’ to justify their creation for profits or mere scientific curiosity. So what we did is to sue the company that creates the first machine of the Singularity in the hope that mankind would listen to us, take notice and prevent the evolution of those machines, halting the collider.
Instead every institution and system of power of Mankind has said: go ahead. Let’s see if this really happens… While the Nuclear Company has orchestrated the usual Dark Maneuvers to hide the real issue – an ad hominem campaign against those of us who dared to defy the corporation and a public relationship campaign with the press, fueled with its 10 billion $ budget that has calmed all public fear.
Of course, now nobody realizes of the importance of the suit, because the difamation campaign has been wildly successful thanks to the collaboration of the scientific press that has censored all our articles, has never interviewed us and it has allowed CERN and the thousands of physicists that collaborate with the company to blog all kind of insults against the Plaintiffs. So people have assumed that all those ad hominem campaigns were right and the issue of the existential risk has been ignored. But if we survive CERN, as the Age of the Singularity advances and new existential risks caused by new machines appear, the ruling of the 9th Circuit will weight on the destiny of mankind. One can think of this ruling that has given science a blind check to destroy the Earth with new technologies as the inverse mirror of Galileo’s suit that started the Age of Science. Then it seemed to everyone that this lunatic, Galileo, who pretended that his telescope saw better than the human eye – that is, he pretended that machines saw better than humans – was a mad man and the church was rightly defending the power of man on Earth. And yet as time passed, Galileo became the victor of that ruling and the church lost prestige for denying the obvious: machines can potentially overpower man and they do as weapons that kill our bodies and increasingly as minds (computers, Tvs) that substitute our world and beliefs with the fictions of their virtual world. Now, everyone in this planet has had a laugh, but as the century passes and the demise of the humankind, atrophied in their bodies and minds by the use of those machines that are making us increasingly obsolete, becomes evident, many will comment in the decision of the Judge Pregerson of the ninth circuit.
Thus, even if the Large Hadron doesn’t kill us, the case of the Large Hadron Collider was fundamental to the future of mankind. Since sooner or latter we shall create an accelerator that will be able to explode the Earth and sooner or latter we shall create the metal-nano bacteria and/or Robots that will substitute us.
2) A Court ruling that comes out precisely when the ‘destruction of the Earth’ is increasingly possible this year, 11/9 (read the previous news), as more astounding documents on the project CASTOR, ‘Centauro And STrangelet detectOR‘ are leaked from our ‘topo’ working at CERN. And this is the second reason why this rule is important. Because in fact CERN has a serious chance to destroy the Earth, since the same Company now has recognized:
– That the events that will take place the 11/9 in lead to lead collisions have a 70% of chances to create strangelets that can devour the Earth (Exhibit A of our Appeal).
– That the ‘safety’ excuse it presented to the world – that those events will not endanger the Earth because they are self-similar to cosmic rays – is false (Exhibit B of our Appeal).
Hence CERN’s experiments are, when we multiply the probability shown in those internal documents by Team Castor, the secret Team of physicists in work of the project of creating strangelets at the LHC -as high as 70% in the event of the 11/9 – by the population of the Earth – 6. 6 billion people – a legal genocide, which an insurance company will calculate easily as risk x endangered population: 6. 6. billion x 70/100=4.620 million human beings – one thousand times the size of the Holocaust. Even if we reduce that percentage considering that the strangelets might not start an ice-9 reaction (the reaction that can freeze the planet into an ultracold strange matter liquid, of 145 kilometers, taken from the novel, ‘cat and cradle’, the legal genocide certainly will exceed that tragedy in ‘insurance victims’. For example, with a mere 1% it would be 66 million bigger than the size of the biggest tragedy of History (the 60 million dead of II World War). And now that we know CERN will do strangelets, even the most optimist scientist – as long as it is not ‘silenced’ by CERN’s peer pressure or obliged, as their workers are, to sign confidentiality statements of zero risk – will put only 1% of risk. And this makes the suit relevant because NOT to judge CERN, NOT to close that facility is an ominous sign of how little we care for sustainable ‘life’ and the future of this planet.
Are we exaggerating this existential, surrealist risk? No, we are not. CASTOR documents prove the existence of a semi-secret research program with closed doors meetings, aimed to produce strangelets, abbreviate of strange liquid, the most explosive substance of the Universe, which the most advanced literature warns us should start an ice-9 reaction and detonate the Earth into a Nova. Since strange liquid seems to be the cause of the transformation of stars into pulsars, the remnants of a supernova, with nuclei made of strange liquid.
Needless to say due to the enormous risks that producing strangelets on Earth would entitled CERN has shown an astounding duplicity, affirming in its safety statements (LSAG) and the Court that it will not produce strangelets. Meanwhile an entire team of researchers work and make powerpoint presentations in which it is given as certain that they will produce strangelets this 11/9.
It is the ‘strangelet hunt’ team of SS-experts (Strange Science experts), who works with the CASTOR detector; a mammoth instrument buried inside the ATLAS experiment of the size of a Cathedral, whose only purpose is to detect the formation of strangelets. Since those SS-experts affirm in their internal documents that they are expecting ‘certainly’ to produce Strangelets –
Yet the CASTOR project goes on unreported by the press and google searches ignore this endeavor to create the most explosive substance of the Cosmos. Instead they divert you to a harmless computer within CERN, a ‘decoy’ also called CASTOR, for Cern Advanced STORage manager. No, this is not a fiction plot but one of the most astounding cases of duplicity and recklessness of a long list of criminal mishaps by corporations against the environment of this planet. This case indeed makes the British Petroleum cover up of the risks of a spill in the Gulf, which the company insisted was very unlikely in our lifetime – exactly the same expression the Amici Curiae used in their affidavits on the suit against CERN – a childish play. Because a spill of hyper-dense strangelets, falling into the Earth and eating it out till its mass is such that they start an ice-9 reaction that explodes the Earth will be definitive. Since there is no way mankind can enter the center of the Earth and close a spill of stable strangelets (see the 10 minute film that illustrate this surrealist event).
Perhaps, because, as we read in the same page, (right down), CERN has convinced those clueless journalists with its shrewd courses offered on: “How to deal with the media: maximising opportunity and minimising threat”?
In any case since CERN and its associates adamantly denied in all the papers on Court that there is any chance to produce strangelets, they have committed perjury… But the Court didn’t accept those news as ‘relevant’ to the case and rejected the proofs that CERN has not only defaulted in this suit but his ‘Amici Court’, the 2 Nobel Prize Physicists, hired by this Nuclear Company to represent the US government lied. Now, we understand why in the ‘spirit’ and errors of this ruling.
SANCHO v. U.S. DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY
LUIS SANCHO; WALTER L. WAGNER, Plaintiffs-Appellants,
U.S. DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY; FERMILAB; CENTER FOR NUCLEAR ENERGY RESEARCH, (CERN); NATIONAL SCIENCE FOUNDATION; DOE ENTITIES, 1-100, Defendants-Appellees.
United States Court of Appeals, Ninth Circuit.
Argued and Submitted June 17, 2010 — Honolulu, Hawaii.
Filed August 24, 2010.
Before: B. FLETCHER, PREGERSON and CLIFTON, Circuit Judges.
Walter L. Wagner (“Wagner”) appeals the district court’s dismissal of his claim against the United States Department of Energy, the National Science Foundation (collectively, “the U.S. government”), and others. The parties are familiar with the facts of this case, which we repeat here only to the extent necessary to explain our decision. We have jurisdiction under 28 U.S.C. § 1291, and we affirm.
This court can affirm on any ground supported by the record. Cook v. AVI Casino Enters., Inc., 548 F.3d 718, 722 (9th Cir. 2008). We review questions of standing de novo, Mayfield v. United States, 599 F.3d 964, 970 (9th Cir. 2010), and factual findings for clear error. Robinson v. United States, 586 F.3d 683, 685 (9th Cir. 2009). To establish standing, W agner must demonstrate (1) an “injury in fact,” (2) “a causal connection between the injury and the conduct complained of” that is not attributable to “the independent action of some third party not before the court,” and (3) a likelihood that a favorable decision will redress the injury. Lujan v. Defenders of Wildlife, 504 U.S. 555, 560-61 (1992).
Wagner cannot demonstrate that he has standing. A plaintiff alleging a procedural injury, such as Wagner, must still establish injury in fact. See Laub v. U.S. Dep’t. of Interior, 342 F.3d 1080, 1086 (9th Cir. 2003). Injury in fact requires some “credible threat of harm.” Cent. Delta Water Agency v. United States, 306 F.3d 938, 950 (9th Cir. 2002). At most, Wagner has alleged that experiments at the Large Hadron Collider (the “Collider”) have “potential adverse consequences.” Speculative fear of future harm does not constitute an injury in fact sufficient to confer standing. Mayfield, 599 F.3d at 970.
Even if Wagner has demonstrated injury in fact, he nevertheless fails to satisfy the causality or redressability prongs set out in Lujan. The European Center for Nuclear Research (“CERN”) proposed and constructed the Collider, albeit with some U.S. government support. The U.S. government enjoys only observer status on the CERN council, and has no control over CERN or its operations. Accordingly, the alleged injury, destruction of the earth, is in no way attributable to the U.S. government’s failure to draft an environmental impact statement.
CERN maintains total ownership, management, and operational control of the Collider. CERN has never been properly served, and is not a party to this case. Even if this court were to render a decision in Wagner’s favor, such a decision would have no impact on CERN or Collider operations, and would not afford Wagner the relief he seeks.[Because our determination of standing is not dependent on the identity of the Appellant, we need not address whether Luis Sancho is a party to this appeal.]
Comment and appeal.
And so the indifference of this Court to the future of the planet is bad news for Mankind.
Indeed, the most astounding paragraph of that Court ruling is the last sentence that gives title to this post, in which the Court gives CERN a rain check to destroy America in case black holes or strangelets are formed and become stable… because even if we were to prove ‘injury in fact’ for the American people, this is none of their business…
But the Court, by dismissing this extraordinary potential genocide, the biggest crime in the history of mankind, as long as there is no ‘Injury in fact’, has rendered useless any system of prevention of Technological Genocides. Indeed, unless the Earth blows up we cannot show ‘injury in fact’. But after the Earth blows up we are dead, and so unless Mr. Hawking is right and black holes are time machines that send us to the past, we shall not be able to show injury in fact.
And yet the Court tell us that this is none of its business. That we must not prevent a probable ‘ice-9’ reaction, that we must trust this corporation despite its open lies and duplicity. Nothing has been learned it seems from the British Petroleum spill. Now we have another ‘Energy Company’, sponsored by the likes of Mr. Hawking who tells us that the evaporation of black holes to the past could be a new source of energy, but if something goes wrong and those mass-bombs, strangelets and black holes, fall to the center of the Earth, they will blow up the planet, and yet we let CERN go ahead with their plans to produce strangelets this 11/9, mirror date of 9/11…
In essence the Court has said that corporations can destroy the environment at any time, for any reason, and we shall only take care of the spills after they happen. Since we sued this company precisely for not obeying any of the National Environmental Protection Act rules both in America and the European Union, which the judges and lawyers of the government have not denied, this ruling also considers those laws of null value, as it has seeked to subvert the spirit of those laws with technicalities.
The system of justice is broken. It almost routinely favors the Government and big Corporations, which are polluting and killing Planet Earth; and this case has been treated again as one between a mammoth corporation, the Nuclear Company of Europe, and a few responsible scientists, the 2+7 plaintiffs that signed on our side. The irresponsibility of our political authorities and technocrats matches that of CERN and its big boys with a big toy, playing quantum roulette with the Earth.
And that is indeed, the bottom line of this story: the perpetrators are mostly young students like Katsas, the guy who has revealed the existence of CASTOR, in his video about his job at CERN. They are children with a big magneto eager to pull the trigger of this Russian roulette, as any kid would do if you give him a weapon. While the judges are venerable, clueless, obedient civil servants who have handled a routine ruling in favor of the ‘Government’, without realizing they have uttered a praejudicium against the Rights to Life of the Humankind – hence against all the underlying Laws of Natural Justice in which a democratic legal system should be based.
An astounding decision full of self-evident lies. CERN was served by a notary from Geneva. CERN is a part in the case but defaulted. If the court decided in our favor, the decision will brutally impact CERN with its huge cuts from all governments, limiting its experiments, delaying the collisions at high energies and opening a worldwide debate on the safety of CERN.
And certainly injury can be proved because if CERN succeeds making strangelets or black holes it will kill all Americans.
Thus, this venerable judge has failed to defend America from the biggest menace to the life of its citizens ever, obviously because it comes from our authorized, ‘exported terrorism’, the one of our industrial-military Complex, and we, the ‘righteous’, are never wrong.
Indeed, the entire planet is freaking out about the Nuclear Bombs of Iran and Korea, which certainly should be prevented from developing further those programs, but CERN is researching the next generation of nuclear bombs, ‘cosmic, quark bombs’ that can blow up an entire planet, since as today there is no mechanism of contention once a strangelet, ‘ice-9’ reaction starts as it might happen the 11/9…. nd nobody cares?! Since the arrogant physicist playing to be God, and the arrogant human being, ‘son of God’, according to religious myths or the ‘only intelligent being of the Universe’ according to scientific myths, thinks he is ‘too big to fail’… Not so in the Universe which was certainly not ‘too big to fail’ when it exploded in the big-bang that CERN is going to produce with the same explosive liquid here on Earth…
We went through the 9/11 and there are so many proofs that it could happen, and yet nobody listened. Now we shall go through 11/9 because again there are so many proofs this might happen and yet nobody has listened. The callousness of a system indifferent to life that only cares about machines, about technology, the modern religion of mankind, shows in that ruling.
The most brutal paragraphs come at the end. First we are told that only ‘injury in fact’ a posteriori can be accepted.
What Pregerson is saying is that Courts can’t prevent crimes, genocides, terrorist attacks. Governments can do preventive wars like Iraq but Courts cannot prevent the destruction of the Earth. And as if this was not clear enough, the Court rounds it up in the final, ‘technical’ concept that ‘even if Walter has demonstrated injury… the destruction of the Earth… is in no way attributable to the U.S. Government’.
Surrealism here reaches heights that Kubrick would have not dared to dream of in ‘Dr. Strangelove’, the film that inspired quantum roulette.
I understand to a certain degree that the Court does have a point to make, since Europeans are the main responsible for this weapon of ‘peace’. But the Courts in Europe were adamant not accepting those suits, which could smear the ‘Grandeur’ of Nuclear France and the German Industry of ‘peaceful weapons’. We tried with the Hague Court of Human Rights but we were told that the Court only accepts cases of genocides that have happened. In other words we have ‘preventive war’, but we do not have preventive justice. We have to be dead, we need injury in fact to claim justice against the collider or any other genocide. Do you wonder why genocides happen?
Indeed, our hopes that the American Court System kept some of the humanist, democratic values that inspired long, long ago this now corrupted nation are gone.
My impression is that this was a ‘praejudicium‘. And many signs of a lousy job show it. To start with the honorable Pregerson is the oldest living judge of the 9th circuit, close to his 90s, a Veteran of the Okinawa Battle, who spent half of the time allotted to the case making jokes about the big-bang of the Earth and arguing that he is one of the oldest civil servants of the United States – you know old folks can’t concentrate for long in current issues and tend to talk as if they were writing unconnected memoirs… Nothing of course against longevity. My father, whom I love dearly, a top lawyer and Notary here in Spain, is just 2 years younger than Mr. Pregerson, but he is retired. He cannot remember things from one day to another and we are all the time worried about him. He has fixed ideas and cannot learn anything new. He likes to talk about his youth. I thought of him when I saw Mr. Pregerson…
But this judge at this age has been handled the task of understanding the complexity of this case, fundamental for the future of mankind in the Age of the Singularity in which we live.Why he was appointed to rule this case? A probable reason could be that he didn’t have to decide but only to handle a prepared ruling. This would explain also the lousy job of the Government’s defense, the non-assistance of CERN and the 2 Nobel Prizes Amici Curiae… Indeed, at the end of the Court session, which you can hear in this tape, people congratulated us. Nobody congratulated the US attorney.
In that regard, I have two responses. One of anger towards the Court and the political system that will allow this to happen.
In this angry response I would AFFIRM that if America dies the 11/9, the date of choice by CERN to create strangelets, it will be because Mr. Pengelstron, Mr. Fletcher and Mr. Clifton stated foolishly that ‘the destruction of America (part of the Earth), is in no way preventable (attributable) to the US Government’.
In layman terms this Court is offering CERN the right to destroy America since it is ‘none of its business’. As the business of America are the politics of America, Not its people that once more have mattered nothing in their Courts. So I would ask Mr. Pengelstron, Mr. Fletcher and Mr. Clifton, what is the government of America and its Courts fundamental task, if it is NOT to defend America?
My emotions indeed run high on this, because I know it ‘likely’ will happen and I have fought for my country, as we Spaniards do, till the last drop of our blood and thoughts, with Devotio Iberica,..
I went to Court against the will of my doctors, 3 days after my arm and collarbone was smashed by ‘I don’t know who’, 3 thugs waiting at the entrance of my garage, coincidence? So I suffered a quadruple fracture. I was told those pieces were like knifes in the muscle and could cut one of my nerves and leave my arm limp, but I went on duty. And I indeed, scared my deltoid an arm nerves on the trip. So now I have reduced mobility in my right hand. I thought though on the Christian dictum, ‘if your right hand sins, pull it away’. So I went… to defend the rights of Life against the bad fruits of the Tree of Science of my people and the American people.
On the other side, the judges, who seemed to have gone to Hawaii on holidays, since they didn’t show any knowledge of this case, had only to let Humanity have a fair trial where to explain those risks, given the fact that Mr. Ellis, chief-theoretician at CERN had put it bluntly in his own words that his task was ‘to defend the LHC from mankind’.
But you Mr. Pengelstron, Fletcher and Clifton did not defend America and so you will be responsible for washing your hands like Poncio Pilate did, in front of the standard scientific truth we explained in those papers.
‘Quid is veritas?’ Pilato asked cynically ‘listen to it’ he was told. But Pengelstron, Fletcher and Clifton didn’t listen to the standard truth of science, Einstein’s work that flatly states if a Bose-Einstein condensate of quarks, aka strangelet, or a black hole is formed at CERN, we will all be dead.
Old men and children, in the two extremes of life, never listen, as the judges and perpetrators of this potential genocide – the children of thought working at CERN, with outdated theories of physics, who know nothing about the beauty of the Universe, we complexity theorists are discovering – have done.
Yet even though my belief in justice and the Court system is greatly diminished by this ruling; even if Mr. Pregerson seems to have said what he has been told, we will appeal to the full body of 9 judges…
It might be late, since the judges only have now a month left before the experiments of 11/9 start up. But that will not be my fault. In any case, I cannot abandon the suit, the cause even if it is lost, is more important than my anger, my arm, my dwindling resources, my lost reputation, the cause is the only cause worth to fight for – the survival of our nations, cultures, identities, of our species…
So I have to give another chance to Mr. Pengelstron; I have to return to Hawaii, if we are still here, so those judges might have a third chance to defend America, a microcosms of Humanity from the LHC, as I have always tried to do, instead of siding with Mr. Ellis who ‘defends the LHC from mankind… As we say in spanish ‘a la tercera va la vencida’.
Thus, Walter and me decided to appeal ‘En Banc’ to the Court. Since it is obvious that the 3 judges have failed to defend mankind/America from the LHC, but 9 just men perhaps can do it, if they were able to think by themselves and think on protecting mankind, NOT the LHC, CERN and DOE:

IN THE UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS
FOR THE NINTH CIRCUIT
LUIS SANCHO, et al.
US DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY, et al.
SHELDON GLASHOW, et al.
ON APPEAL FROM THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF HAWAII
PETITION FOR REHEARING EN BANC
(Fed. R. App. P. 35; 9th Cir. R. 35-1 to -3)
Petitioners request En Banc hearing of the above-entitled appeal on the basis that the proceeding involves a question of exceptional importance, and on the basis that consideration by the full Court is necessary to secure uniformity of the Court’s decisions.
This Petition for Rehearing En Banc is timely filed within 45 days of the August 24, 2010 decision date of the appellate tribunal Panel affirming the underlying appeal.
Defendants and Appellees US Department of Energy (DOE) and European Center for Nuclear Energy Research (CERN) have engaged in a joint collaborative effort in the construction, maintenance and operation of a machine (Large Hadron Collider, aka LHC) designed to smash atoms together at energies that do not exist in Nature, in an effort to create new forms of matter referred to in the scientific literature as “strange-matter” or “strangelets”. This type of matter is believed to have existed in the earliest history of the Universe, but no longer exists. Defendant/Appellee DOE has funded approximately 10% of the construction costs (in excess of $500,000,000) of the LHC, and continues to fund ongoing experimental operations costs.
Plaintiffs and Appellants Luis Sancho and Walter L. Wagner are scientists who are concerned with the evident duplicity of Defendants in telling the general public, via press releases and other communications with the general media, that the LHC will simply recreate events which occur routinely in the Earth’s upper atmosphere by way of natural cosmic ray bombardment, but in a controlled laboratory setting. If such were the case, Plaintiffs would not have filed suit. Rather, in their own internal documents CERN acknowledges that the LHC will create conditions “beyond the reach of cosmic rays” in their quest to create this new form of matter, known as strange matter or strangelets because of the large number of “strange quarks” composing it.
CERN IS A DEFENDANT
Contrary to the appellate tribunal Panel ruling, CERN was properly served by Maitre Marco Breitenmoser, Huissier Judiciaire. Mr. Breitenmoser effected the very best type of service possible. He hand-delivered the certified copy of the Complaint to the CERN Legal Department located on the property of CERN in the jurisdiction wherein he serves as a Huissier Judicaire, namely Switzerland. CERN cannot complain that they did not receive notice of this suit, but instead chose to default and not file an Answer. That service document is in the possession of this Court and it was also published in the public domain (1). Thus Defendant CERN is in this suit, even if it is not present at Court, and this Court has jurisdiction over CERN, even if CERN chose not to participate. The US Attorney’s argument on behalf of Defendant CERN that some other type of service should have been effected is an argument that could only be made in Switzerland, not in US Courts, which have long recognized that actual service upon a party, informing them of the proceedings at hand, is the intent and purpose of Service of Process and such actual service, providing a court-conformed certified copy of the Complaint designed to inform a party of the pending proceedings, confers jurisdiction of the Court upon that party.
A “CREDIBLE THREAT OF HARM” EXISTS
The ruling affirms that (2) the plaintiffs must demonstrate “a causal connection between the injury and the conduct complained of” and that an ‘Injury in Fact’ requires some “credible threat of harm.” Credible threat of harm has been proven ad nauseam by Plaintiffs/Appellants using ‘standard science’. If the LHC forms this novel type of matter known in theory as strange matter or Strangelets, it will form an explosive quark-liquid, ruled by the so-called Einstein-Bose statistics. Since according to the most advanced laws of standard Strangelet science (MIT, Shanghai Institute of Higher physics (2)), if created, Strangelets will start an “ice-9” reaction that will devour the Earth, converting the planet into a 15 kilometer diameter ‘rock’ of ultra-dense strange matter. Additionally, since according to Einstein, whose Relativity theory is standard science in all things referent to black holes that might be produced at the LHC, those ultra-dense forms of mass known as micro black holes will absorb all the matter of the Earth, destroying the planet should they be produced several years hence when such proton-proton collisions are planned at the highest energies at the LHC.
This Court must understand that standard science is not speculative or probabilistic. When we switch on a light, the standard laws of electromagnetism discovered by Maxwell imply that if the circuit is not broken, light happens. This is called the ‘Totalitarian Principle’ of Physics, which states that ‘all that is not forbidden by the laws of physics is compulsory’(3).
On the other hand, Defendant CERN uses ‘speculative theories’ trying to justify the existence of “no-risk” for both micro black hole creation (the so-called Hawking’s radiation, never observed and never proved since it is based on the speculation that black holes travel to the past and evaporate, which is like saying that the dead resurrect to the past (4)) and for Strangelet creation. While in the case of Strangelets, knowing its enormous danger (and hoping the risk is small, which apparently is their faith) but evidently not wanting to jeopardize their funding, Defendant CERN has blatantly lied to the public affirming that strange matter (aka Strangelets) cannot be produced, while at the same time readying experimentation in an effort to detect such Strangelets (the CASTOR experiment, infra).
Indeed, since the appellate tribunal Panel’s ruling took place, plaintiffs have received internal documents from CERN’s servers which prove CERN has lied repeatedly to the public, by stating that:
-“Strangelets will not happen at the LHC”.
“the experiments taking place at the LHC are safe because they happen constantly in the Universe.” (5)
Both safety statements are false. Since CERN:
– Has designed and installed a particle-detector machine called CASTOR, acronym for Centauro and Strangelet Object Research, to observe the creation of Strangelets at the LHC (Exhibit A).
Defendant CERN affirms in closed door Conferences and documents released for internal consumption that:
– Lead on lead atomic collisions, which will start potentially as early as this November, 2010, will have more energy than natural cosmic ray collisions (which are primarily Proton on Nitrogen/Oxygen) for Lead on Lead, and so in those collisions “events can be expected to show exotic phenomena [strangelets] that is beyond the reach of cosmic rays”(Exhibit B).
– And CERN gives a probability of detecting strangelets in those collisions at low energy of 70%; and at high energy of 65% (Exhibit C).
It is the contention of Plaintiffs that those statements completely change the nature of this suit, since now “injury in fact” is not speculative but proven by CERN’s internal papers as a serious potentiality, should the intended creation of strange matter go awry, and the newly created strangelets are spilled from the LHC and engage in the runaway fusion reactions theorized in scientific articles, instead of the hoped-for benign fizzle.
PATRIOT ACT ALSO APPLICABLE
Further on, given this new evidence and the number of potential victims of those experiments (namely all mankind), CERN is committing an Act of Terrorism that gives Jurisdiction to this Court under the US Civil Code. In all cases of ‘International or Domestic Terrorism’, which can put at risk the life of millions of people; the Patriot Act’s amendments to the Civil Code (Section 802, 803 and 3077 of US Civil Code) expressly gives Jurisdiction over those crimes to ‘any Federal judicial district as provided by law.’ (6)
Thus, contrary to the appellate tribunal Panel ruling, which states that “even if Wagner (sic) demonstrated…injury in fact… the destruction of the Earth is in no way attributable to the US government”, under this new evidence the US Government has, according to the US Code, both the obligation and the legal capacity to intervene. Since now there is a possibility of ‘Acts of Terrorism’ involving nuclear substances that can cause ‘mass destruction’ (6).
In the suit Plaintiffs quoted the Patriot Act’s amendments to the US Code that permits Federal Courts and the American government to intervene when there are Acts of Terrorism or nuclear substances that can harm American lives. Now the Exhibits show further proofs of those acts. Thus, the Court must accept jurisdiction under the US code, enjoin the Defendant DOE from funding CERN, and ask the US and European Governments to stop those experiments.
NEPA REQUIRES EIS FOR POTENTIAL HARM
The appellate tribunal Panel ruling is based on the premise that the only ‘injury in fact’ there must be, in essence, is the actual destruction of the Earth (not the potential destruction), as to be enough proof to enjoin CERN. Yet such ‘injury in fact’ in such case means our extinction. So not even then could we denounce CERN, as we would not be here. That appellate tribunal Panel ruling though no longer applies under the newly discovered evidence (Exhibits A and C), since ‘injury in fact’ is not speculative, but rather strongly evidenced by the fact that CERN intends to create strange matter, contrary to its public posturing and its indirect assurances to this Court via the Amici Curiae (who appear themselves to be misinformed and/or deceived by CERN). Such duplicity on the part of Defendant CERN, coupled with the strong likelihood that such strange matter could engage in runaway fusion (2), is all that is needed for there to exist the requisite ‘injury in fact’ as envisioned in NEPA and the Environmental Impact Statements (EIS) mandated whenever such potentialities exist.
So this Court can no longer deny Jurisdiction on those grounds, or else the honorable judges would imply that we should scrap all prevention of crime including the prevention of genocides; that we should allow rapists to stalk their victims because there is no injury in fact; that we should let people menace the life of others with weapons or threats, because there is no ‘injury in fact’; that restraining orders and Injunctions should be scrapped all together until there is in fact an injury, and not an ‘injury in fact’.
A FAVORABLE RULING WILL REDRESS THE INJURY
The ruling implies that if (3) ‘a likelihood that a favorable decision will redress the injury’, the case must be accepted. And this is indeed the case herein. Since this September’s $133.4 million cut over a five-year period to 2015 by European Governments which have also been funding CERN has resulted in a one year delay on the upgrades to the Large Hadron Collider’s beam intensity that would increase the dangers of injury and the shutting down of all other accelerators in 2012. Thus, eliminating the US DOE contribution will further imperil and delay LHC’s operations and the injury it will cause on plaintiffs. (7) Further, eliminating the funding of the intended experimentation (and not the general operations funded by CERN’s European support, which funding is significantly reduced), which is the current primary US funding, would also serve to redress the injury.
This Court must be aware that neither the US DOE nor CERN have carried out the environmental impact studies required by NEPA, even though the US contributed $531 millions to CERN – a quantity far larger than the total sum invested in many other projects in which environmental impact studies were carried out.
In that sense we must learn from past mistakes of the US Government. Indeed, as the Washington Post recently denounced (8) that the ‘U.S. exempted BP’s Gulf of Mexico drilling from Environmental Impact Study’ since BP contended that an oil spill was “unlikely” in our lifetime, and requested exemption from producing an EIS. This “unlikely” is exactly the same word used by CERN’s Amici Curiae, Mr. Sheldon Glashow, to deny the possibility of creation of strange matter or strangelets (9), which the exhibits show CERN believes in fact it will produce with a 70% probability of detection. Thus even if this Court trusted the Amici Curiae – unaware of the duplicity and willful blindness of CERN – and it believed there was no risk of ‘injury in fact’, under the new evidence of those exhibits, it must consider that as in the case of BP, a spill will quite possibly happen. Mr. Glashow’s affirmation is contradicted by the very same CERN Company in its internal documents that affirm exactly the opposite – the ‘likely’ possibility of creation of those spills.
Indeed, Mr. Katsas, one of the scientists in charge of the CASTOR detector plainly states in one of those documents: “My name is Panos Katsas. I work as an experimental physicist for the CASTOR forward calorimeter of CMS and my main area of interest is the study of exotic events in heavy ion collisions, especially the identification of strangelets, which are likely to be produced.” (italics added for emphasis) (10)
The difference between both types of spills however is significant:
A spill of hyper-dense Strangelets, falling into the Earth will convert by a runaway fusion reaction more and more atoms into an ultra-dense strange liquid, until its mass is such that it starts an ice-9 reaction, exploding the Earth due to the release of enormous fusion energy, which will be irreversible. (This is no different than the fusion reactions of so-called Hydrogen-bombs, which have a runaway fusion reaction until all utilizable fuel has been consumed, allowing for H-bombs of any size. In the case of Strangelets, the utilizable fuel would be all of the atoms of earth, not just heavy-Hydrogen atoms which are otherwise rare on earth.) This is because there is no way mankind can enter into the center of the Earth and close a spill of stable Strangelets, as British Petroleum has been able to do with great difficulties and environmental damage to the American coast in their Gulf Spill, which was only one mile down from the sea surface.
Plaintiffs/Appellees have thus shown that:
– CERN recognizes it will attempt to produce strangelets, and standard science has proven that strangelets could blow up the Earth (2):
– Injury in Fact is proven (1); and “a causal connection between the injury and the conduct complained of” is proven, given the fact that the US is on Planet Earth (2) (11).
– Defendants CERN and DOE are acting with Criminal Negligence and Recklessness, imperiling the life of all the citizens of America by conducting those experiments, which can cause a spill of Strangelets. Hence they are under the jurisdiction of this Court under both NEPA and the US Code against ‘Terrorist acts’.
Since ‘a likelihood that a favorable decision will redress the injury (3) is shown, this Court must rule immediately against Defendants CERN and the DOE, issuing a temporary Restraining Order until a full Hearing thereon can be held, enjoining the US DOE so as to prevent further funding of those Experiments under NEPA and under the obligations set by the US Code, titles 802, 803 and 3077, and further requesting the European Governments with territorial jurisdiction over CERN (Switzerland and France) to stop the ‘likely’ creation of Strangelets in those experiments.

(2) In the article “Will Relativistic Heavy-Ion Colliders Destroy Our Planet?” 470 Phys. Lett. B 142-148 (1999); Dr. Rujula, who works at CERN and denies any risk in his public statements for this company CERN states “Imagine that, for some unforeseen reason, there is a ‘valley of stability’ for negative strangelets. Suppose that, somehow, such an object is produced in a laboratory high-energy reaction and that it survives the collisions that eventually bring it to rest in matter. The negative strangelet would attract a positive nucleus and may eat it. The resulting object may loose positive charge and adjust its strangeness by electron capture or positron β -decays. The new strangelet may be negative again, and maintain an appetite for nuclei. If its mass grows to some 0.3 ng (A 2 × 1014) it falls to the centre of the Earth, for its weight overcomes the structural energy density of matter (109 erg cm−3 or 0.1 eV per molecular bond). At a mass above 1.5 ng, for a typical nuclear density, the object becomes larger than an atom and the positron cloud that it has been developing sits mainly inside the strangelet itself (for stable strangelets that have grown this large, the sign of Z is immaterial). Even without the help of the Coulomb attraction, gravity and thermal motion may then sustain the accreting chain reaction until, perhaps, the whole planet is digested, leaving behind a strangelet with roughly the mass of the Earth and 100 m radius. The release of energy per nucleon should be of the order of several MeV and, if the process is a run-away one, the planet would end in a supernova-like catastrophe.” (underlining added for emphasis)
While in the paper “New solutions for the color-flavor locked strangelets” G. X. Peng, X. J. Wen, Y. D. Chen from the ‘Institute of High Energy Physics’ of China and the Center for Theoretical Physics at MIT, Cambridge, USA present ‘solutions to the system equations where CFL strangelets are slightly negatively charged.’ Further on, they give estimates that show they will ‘certainly’ be produced at the energies to take place at the LHC. The paper can be downloaded at: http://arxiv.org/abs/hep-ph/0512112
(3) The totalitarian Principle of quantum Mechanics was found by Nobel Prize Gell-mann, who also discovered the quarks that form those strangelets:
(4) This absurd theory has been exposed by Mr. Hawking in his book ‘Black Holes and Baby Universes (1993)’ where he affirms that Black holes are ‘time machines’ and doors to ‘Baby Universes’; and in ‘The Universe in a nutshell’ where he affirms they can be used to travel in time and ‘kill your grand-father’. Further on Mr. Hawking denies ‘Einstein’s standard theory of black holes’ in his article ‘The quantum mechanics of black holes; SciAm; Jan. 1977, where he flatly stating without any proof that ‘Einstein is double wrong’. We could reply with Mr. Einstein’s own words about such improbable theories: “Every theory is speculative. If, however, a theory is such as to require the application of complicated logical processes in order to reach conclusions from the premises that can’t be confronted with observation, everybody becomes conscious of the speculative nature of the theory. In such case an almost irresistible feeling of aversion arises…”
Those are indeed the characteristics of Mr. Hawking’s theory, reason why he has never received a Nobel Prize given only to proved theories as Mr. Einstein did. So this Court must consider Einstein’s work on Relativity and Quark Fermion condensates the standard theory of black holes and strangelets, which considers certain the destruction of the Earth if any of those two types of ultradense matter appear on this planet .
(5) CERN states in ‘The Safety of the LHC’ at http://public.web.cern.ch/public/en/lhc/safety-en.html that: “The LHC, like other particle accelerators, recreates the natural phenomena of cosmic rays under controlled laboratory conditions, enabling them to be studied in more detail.” Thus, it affirms those experiments are safe because “Over the past billions of years, Nature has already generated on Earth as many [cosmic rays] collisions as about a million LHC experiments – and the planet still exists.” Yet exhibit B shows that the ‘serious’ internal reports of the CERN Company expect events never found in cosmic rays in the Lead on Lead atomic collisions starting potentially as early as this November, 2010. Regarding Strangelets in the same page on ‘The Safety of the LHC’ CERN states flatly that “Strangelets cannot be produced” contradicting its own conferences for ‘specialists’ on the CASTOR Detector that will search for them (Exhibit A and C).
(6) On view of the recognition by CERN that it will produce strangelets (F, Exhibit C) that could extinguish life in this planet, CERN’s actions should be considered an act of Terrorism, which falls under Federal Court jurisdiction. Since it applies to CERN Section 3077(1) of title 18, United States Code, Section 802 and 803 and its amendments by the Patriot Act, ‘Title VIII—strengthening the criminal laws against terrorism’ that affirm:
‘‘(1) ‘act of terrorism’ means an act of domestic or international terrorism as defined in section 2331.
(5) the term ‘domestic terrorism’ means activities that— ‘‘(A) involve acts dangerous to human life that are a violation of the criminal laws of the United States or of any State; ‘‘(B) appear to be intended— ‘‘(iii) mass destruction.
(b) A violation of this section may be prosecuted in any Federal judicial district in which the underlying offense was committed, or in any other Federal judicial district as provided by law.’’
Specifically this Court should consider the cases of Terrorism in which the Code allows intervention of US Government: Section 831 (relating to nuclear materials), section 2332b (relating to acts of terrorism transcending national boundaries) and finally section 236(a) (relating to sabotage of nuclear facilities), Since the LHC in which the US invested 531 million $ can be destroyed by those experiments.
(8) See the article “U.S. exempted BP’s Gulf of Mexico drilling from Environmental Impact Study” at:
(9) Both B.P. and CERN lied, saying a spill was ‘unlikely’. B.P. ‘unlikely’ statement can be found at:
CERN’s ‘unlikely’ statement on the creation of strangelets by Amicus Curiae, Mr. Glashow can be found in his Amicus Brief, “Argument I. Appellants allegations of a safety risk at CERN and injury to them are purely hypothetical, speculative, and not credible”. This again is in open contradiction with CERN’s conferences on CASTOR and the fact that CERN has spent important amounts of time and money, constructing a detector of strangelets and giving ‘week conferences’ on them (Exhibit A, C.)
(10) Mr. Katsas’ statement can be found at:
(11) See Google maps if the Court doubts of the ‘causal connection’ between America and Planet Earth.
The Castor Project, acronym for Centauro and Strangelet Object Research, was installed by CERN at the CMS experiment. CERN therefore expects to find strangelets in the lead to lead collisions, starting this 11/9, despite its public statements and the statements in court of the Amici Curiae, who denied such possibility as ‘very unlikely’. The top of Exhibit A is the internet address for Castor posted above. Bellow a Castor picture also found there. Exhibit C is found on the right side list on ‘presentations’ -> ‘conferences’ → ‘P. Katsas, Strangelet hunt at CMS’. In many documents on those pages the scientists of Team Castor state that Strangelets will be produced ‘likely’ with a probability between 65 and 70%
Exhibit B shows the duplicity of CERN, which affirms in internal documents that the Pb-Pb collision ‘events can be expected to show exotic phenomena [strangelets] that is beyond the reach of cosmic rays’
Exhibit C shows that CERN expects to produce Strangelets with a probability of 65/70% which makes the risk of extinction of Earth, unacceptable for governments. Since a 67% of risk calculated as Insurance companies do with risks of catastrophe, by multiplying the probability by the potential victims means a legal genocide of 67.5% x 6.6 billion human beings = 4.324 billion – 1000 times the size of the Holocaust. Hence those experiments must be stopped immediately.
Epilogue: A brief history of the Atomic Cannon: why indeed CERN’s destruction of Earth will be ‘business as usual’, by the ‘usual suspects’.
Despite my previous criticism, I do not believe though the judges we have met are reckless as this company is. They have probably acted with wishful blindness, under the truth of authority. Yet the outcome of their judgment might be the same: a potential genocide on a scale never witnessed on Earth. Since the Court will probably delay the new hearing after the 11/9 strangelet experiment has taken place. Still if we survive that experiment we will have to face an upgrade of power that will again bring both extinction scenarios, the black hole and the strangelet with renewed force in 2013… So we must continue the fight for ‘mankind against the LHC’ in all fronts.
Unfortunately it seemed obvious to us in both suits that the venerable judges, because of their trust on the military and the American government, against which we put the suits, didn’t understand the real dangers for the life of America and the Earth at large of ‘quark cannons’, the real name of accelerators like the LHC. So we shall finish this post explaining the history and dangers of them, in the simplest possible terms.
All those atomic cannons were funded to study nuclear reactions that could be use latter to create bombs. The study of particles became then a collateral benefit of the study of future Nuclear Weapons with atomic cannons. And so a natural synergy occurred: the first ‘tiny’ bombs were explored in the atomic cannon. And those reactions which were susceptible of further military use, would be studied in more detail and if suitable, a larger ‘critical mass’ would be built and a Nuclear Bomb exploded.
Now, unfortunately the ‘detonator substance’ of the quark bomb, are a mere thousands of quarks, which weighs so little that the quark cannon can do the job of starting the mass-reaction, without the need to evolve further a quark bomb.
We discovered in the last decade, when the machine was already commissioned and could not be stopped without shutting down CERN, that a quark condensate is the cause of Nova and Supernova explosions that create pulsars, before thought to be made of neutrons, now known to have a quark-gluon soup in its center. Thus, if a quark-gluon soup exploded with such force as to dilate space-time to the limits of the Universe and a tiny quantity of it starts a Nova reaction, it is obvious that the same quark soup will blow up of the Earth. Let us explain why:
The Universe of matter and energy is built as a Russian doll: each time we perforate further into the doll we uncover new, smaller layers of increasing energy/mass. Since a weapon is an instrument that kills by releasing an overdrive of energy that erases the information of life, the best weapons are cannons and bombs that break with an explosion a deep layer of the Russian Doll of the Universe, releasing its inner energy that erases the information of life.
In that regard, the evolution of artillery is dual. On one side cannons have increased their precision in order to perforate and release the energy accumulated in ever tinier bits of matter. On the other side, bombs have increased the quantity of the explosive material they carry, increasing their destructive power. Thus, the first cannons and bombs released gunpowder energy – the physical, outer cover of lesser energy – with limited precision. In the XVII century Galileo improved that precision, studying cannonball trajectories and setting the foundation of the science of ballistics, soon a fundamental part of physics. Then, in the XIX century, Nobel discovered chemical explosives that released the next, molecular, chemical cover. So bombs and cannons improved in explosive power. And the Nobel Prize was set up with the benefits of war…
It was only left to explode the atom, which is made of an electroweak cover and a strong nuclei of quarks. Thus, the final horizon on the evolution of artillery was the atomic cannon. It first perforated the atom in 1936, in Nazi Germany, causing its fission. Soon the atomic bomb released the energy of that ‘electroweak’ cover of the atom. Then cyclical cannons were discovered; and so the bullet could turn around the barrel as many times as needed to perforate further the atom, allowing the fusion processes that gave birth to the Hydrogen Bomb. Now in its 3rd evolutionary age, the atomic cannon will explore the next ‘russian doll’ of energy/mass – the quark. So in the XXI century the Quark cannon will open the final, ‘solid’ Russian doll of ‘strong’ quarks, which accumulate 99% of the mass-energy of the Universe, provoking a big ‘bang’ so enormous that it could blow up the entire Earth.
It is the culmination of a long evolution of Atomic cannons that dates back to the age of the Manhattan project that created the first atomic bombs in the 1940s. Indeed, the 1st Atomic Bomb was intended to be also an Atomic Cannon that would shoot 2 halves of a critical mass of plutonium, but due to its enormous size, physicists opted out for a smaller Bomb, which was detonated with chemical explosives (dynamite), instead of using a cannon barrel that had to be transported in a super-carrier ship.
Thus, the quark cannon/bomb means a growth of explosive power similar to the jump that happened between atomic weapons and dynamite, but far more dangerous, for 2 reasons:
– The quark cannon will cross for the first time in history the 1 teravolt barrier of energy that causes the death of our electroweak matter – what physicists call the ‘breaking of electroweak symmetry’. Symmetry is a property of all entities of Nature. For example, humans have bilateral symmetry, meaning we have 2 eyes, 2 ears, 2 legs, and if our symmetry breaks because we are axed in half, we die. So happens to our electroweak matter when it ‘breaks its symmetry’. It dies.
– The explosion a quark bomb produces is similar to a fire in the sense that once the fire/quark bomb starts it is self-sustained mass-bomb (M=e/c2), as the combustible is all the matter of the Earth – all the wood of the forest, converted into ashes – till it becomes a small, ultra-dense lump of quark matter, a strangelet, quark star, pulsar or black hole.
The quark cannon is plainly speaking a Damocles sword that will hang over all of mankind, as the Nuclear Company that manufactured it shoots every day protons and lead to make the most dangerous substance of the Universe, ‘quark matter condensates’. During 2 years, with increasing power, we shall enter a region in which the most dangerous, attractive substance of the cosmos, quark matter condensates, could become stable and feed on Earth’s electroweak matter. As in the Greek legend in which each day the sword hangs on a thinner thread over the throne of Damocles, the quark cannon will be each day more dangerous, as the Company ramps up its power during 2 years in which the cannon promises to reach finally over 1000 teravolt shots in lead to lead collisions in Christmas 2012…
If the existence of the Damocles Machine is bad enough, as in the legend, the nightmare becomes complete when we realize that only Damocles – only a few nuclear physicists – know the secrets of the quark cannon and they cannot reveal them to the rest of mankind, because they will loose their kingdom, their jobs and position of power as the ‘high priests of science’, who have never been made responsible for the enormous harm their weapons have caused to mankind. So none of them talks of the dangers of the quark cannon, only of the incredible discoveries it will bring to the human species…
Indeed, to understand while mankind has paid for the quark cannon, we must consider a historic overview of the ways in which the military-industrial system has evolved and markets today successfully its weapons to governments and public alike, brushing off any opposition with the usual tools of industrial marketing and political corruption.
It is a deja vu experience in the world of nuclear weapons. Physicists at CERN do not want to blow up the Earth; and so, as anyone in the military profession of making or using weapons, for decades they have found ‘intellectual reasons’ to justify the industry of atomic cannons. Already Teller convinced Truman of the need to make Hydrogen bombs, because they were needed to ‘know better’ the atom. Then he proposed a H-Bomb made with his company at stratospheric price to blow up THE WHOLE URSS, backed by the entire nuclear community. Eisenhower realized of this MAD strategy and called Krushev starting the process of disarmament. Again Lederman invented the Higgs hoax and sold it to Reagan as ‘God’s particle’ to get 13 billion for the Texas quark cannon. Clinton far more intelligent realized of the dangers, uselesness and tag prize and cancelled.
But those turn out to be small changes. What really changed was the ‘newspeak’ the nuclear industry uses today to promote the evolution of nuclear weapons. Since those are no longer ‘politically correct’ words, now we use the newspeak of research to keep doing the same: evolving nuclear weapons.
This is also the case of DOE, ruled by Mr. Chu, a physicist who invented a laser machine, and was awarded for that minor feat of engineering a Nobel Prize, who was the boss of another ‘research lab’, which invented and evolved the first accelerators – the Livermore Laboratory.
Yet according to the DOE Lab Tables, 85% of Livermore Lab’s current budget request is earmarked for weapons activities. Less than 1% is earmarked for energy conservation and clean energy sources. Mr. Chu, probably is the man that has given the ultimate word in this suit – dismissal at any price. He was running accelerators in the past. He cares very little if anything at all for environmental laws, as he clearly showed in his initial backing of British Petroleum, letting them drag for months a solution to the spill and always approving their reports – when it turn out latter the spill was 10 times bigger. And obviously he is the ‘strong man’ in Obama’s administration, in all things related to science.
Though I would suggest Mr. Obama not to listen to this man, the new Teller of the Nuclear industry and instead call Messieur Sarkozy and do the same Eisenhower did: to abort the nuclear industry 3rd attempt to create a doomsday weapon…. Since as they say in spanish ‘a la tercera va la vencida'(3rd time always happens). Indeed, the excuse of knowledge is weakened as the fundamental particles of the Universe are ALL discovered, diminishing the ‘scientific returns’ of those weapons; while on the other hand, the dangers increased, as the potency of atomic bombs and cannons increased. The quark cannon has definitely tilted the balance: the risk are far bigger than the knowledge we shall extract from it.
But the Nuclear company of Europe did not want to shut down, so it found 3 excuses to dilute the dangers: ‘denial of dangers’, ‘excuses of knowledge’, and ‘ad hominem campaigns’ against those who opposed them, paid by with the enormous 10 billion $ budget given to the company to build the machine.
– CERN diluted the dangers with false statements that portrayed the quark cannon as a harmless cosmic ray factory, when it is a fact of science that quarks and cosmic rays are completely different kind of particles. We have, in fact, excellent cosmic rays observatories and we never found quarks in cosmic rays. So we have in a surrealist twist a factory of a certain, dangerous substance, quarks, which is not mentioned in all its communiques, but substituted by a harmless one, cosmic rays. Imagine a factory of missiles that would systematically affirm, it produces only knives. But in an age in which research journalism is dead, it has been possible to pull out this kind of lie.Further on, we have now proofs in internal documents at CERN that affirm exactly the opposite: that the LHC is designed to explore energies and masses beyond the reach of Cosmic rays. This is why we accuse this company of perjury and Criminal Negligence.
– Then, during all the years in which the company lobbied for money to construct the machine, it made marketing campaigns affirming that this machine will prove a series of fringe theories, pumped up as the ‘meaning of it all’:
The company said that the quark cannon would find ‘God’s particle’, a hypothesized particle called the Higgs, which according to the company shall explain the meaning of mass. This again is false. The particle is self-similar to a well known quark, the top quark. It has the same mass and properties, and so it is very likely, since the Universe is efficient and not redundant, that the Higgs, which we haven’t found in 30 years, does not exist at all but it is the already known top quark and the ‘God’s particle sting’, just a trick to get funding for a ‘new, stupendous discovery’ that will never happen. Further on, even if it exists it is only useful to explain a reaction, the death of our matter, as neutrons and protons decay into 2 particles called W and Z, which are related to the Higgs=Top quark (the sum of their masses is that of a Higgs/Top: W+Z=T). So this hypothetical Higgs merely would be the catalyzer of the death of our matter. And a factory of Top/Higgs quarks means only a factory that will kill our matter, and if the reaction goes out of hand, all the matter of the planet Earth.
Apart from that, the Higgs/Top does not explain at all the meaning of mass, or gives mass to other particles. This is nonsense. It is just one more particle of the zoo of the Universe.
So all that marketing about the Higgs/Top, being ‘God’s particle’ and the most important particle of the Universe is ludicrous.
For all those reasons, the 2 most important physicists alive, laugh at the Higgs. Mr. Weinberg, the Nobel Prize, discoverer of the weak force, called it ‘the toilet particle’ to flush in a vortex of mass of Dr. Einstein. Mr. Wilczek, discoverer of the strong force, says that masses are the frequencies of a whirl of space-time; and that is the only explanation of mass there is. Obviously the discoverer of the modern laws of gravitation, the 3rd force of the Universe, Mr. Einstein would disagree also with Higgs theory. The 4th fundamental physicist of the modern age, Mr. Maxwell, discoverer of the laws of the 4th force of Nature, electromagnetism, lived in the XIX c. So we do not know what he thinks. Perhaps for that reason Mr. Higgs likes to compare himself with this ‘other’ Scottish genius, as he does in the documentary provided by CERN.
– Finally, when the dangers of the Large Hadron Cannon were known, as scientists sued CERN for genocide in different Courts of Europe and America, the Nuclear Company put the ‘system’ of defamation, so useful in those cases, at work. First it voiced out ‘ad hominem’ campaigns against those scientists who denounced the crime.
Let us follow the account of those facts, according to Eric Johnson, an independent Lawyer who showed much more respect for the spirit of the law that this court in the study of the Case of the Collider:
‘Brian Cox, spokesman for CERN, said in public: “Anyone who thinks the LHC will destroy the world,” he said, “is a twat.” John Ellis, chief theorist at CERN referred to LHC detractors as “nuts” and insinuated that one of them, Walter Wagner, was only pursuing a lawsuit against CERN to make money. Yet Wagner was suing for an injunction, not damages.’
On the other side, none of the scientists who denounced the quark cannon were able to explain themselves in the press (reasons why we have to do this kind of long posts to give an information which is vial to mankind). Thus by monopolizing all the information about the suits, CERN soon convinced mankind that all those scientists who were not in favor of CERN, were ‘crazy people’ for suing CERN – as another CERN physicist put it.
Let us quote again Jhonson: John Ellis, gave a talk in the CERN auditorium in which he sought “to provide the ammunition” that CERN people could use to convince others that the quark cannon poses no danger. After reviewing the scientific arguments that the LHC is safe, Ellis explained that a question that worried him more than whether humanity was safe from the LHC, was the opposite—whether the LHC was safe from Humanity. Ellis then briefed the audience on unfavorable press reports, the various lawsuits filed to stop the LHC, and a public opinion poll indicating that most people thought the LHC was not worth the risk. Ellis also introduced the audience to Richard Posner, whom Ellis said he found “really worrying” for considering that society and judges should have a telling in an experiment that could cause our demise. Wrapping up, Ellis came to what his presentations slides labeled “The Best answer.” “So, to finish,” Ellis said, “the way to stop all this argument about whether the LHC is going to destroy the planet is to get the LHC working.” “Within a few weeks time, we will know that LSAG was right.” Of course, in making such a statement, Ellis either showed that he misapprehends the relevant physics, which seems highly doubtful, and accepted as a way of ‘doing science’ , wishful thinking.
is John Ellis right? Shall we, human beings, mankind at large and our institutions and courts, let scientists invent all kind of machines, even those who can destroy us? Obviously not. Consider for example, a factory of Ebola Virus that would study different mutations of the Virus for knowledge. We would not allow crazy scientists to create such factory. So why we allow a factory of dark, quark matter, the physical equivalent of the Ebola Virus? Obviously not and that is why we asked in our suits that the NATO governments who should be in control of this disguised weapon, use the provisions of the Patriot Act that allow governments to seize any nuclear substance that endangers the life of Americans and European citizens. That law allows to close CERN despite its diplomatic immunity.
Of course, this would bring the opposition of the Nuclear Lobbies and Corporate science, of all those recycled nuclear weapon-makers now working at CERN in search of the toilet particle. But someone must loose in this affair, and obviously the loss of some jobs to the Nuclear Physicist community is far less damaging to the world that an explosion of strangelets. Those ‘big boys with a big toy’ at CERN are eager to shoot the Earth, as any children would be, if we lend them a gun, reason why you don’t leave guns around children. Spoiled children, as Nuclear Physicists, living in their ivory tower of intellectual research are, will lie and hide the gun and shoot it, scary but shoot it anyway as our childish researchers at CERN are about to do. It is a clear case of willful blindness, which after uncovering the internal documents of this company has become a clear case of recklessness backed by technocrats that think this company is too big to fail.
So nothing else can be told to this modern Pilates except those words of forgiveness:
‘Pater dimitte illis non enim sciunt quid faciunt’
50 days, today, 22 september and discounting, before those children of thought at CERN shoot their bullet of lead at c-speed in their quantum roulette, expecting ‘likely’ to produce strangelets and then, what? This question is not even argued in the papers of CASTOR. There is no prevention system as we know strangelets will either explode before growing enough to devour the Earth or will not. It is really in the hands of God. But God, the mind of the Universe, has its laws that don’t favor mankind in this case.
But I feel, God, the Laws of the Universe, will not give man this time another chance. There won’t be more accidents in the doomsday machine. God this time will respond with the coldness of the Darwinian, impersonal Universe: ‘Alea Jacta est’ – he will say.
Indeed, ‘the dices are thrown’ and the dictum of the Laws of Strangelets, which so far prove our demise seems now irrevocable.
