Recently during a press briefing regarding the Large Hadron Collider beneath Geneva, Sergio Bertolucci, a physics theorist and Director of Research and Scientific Computing at CERN told reporters, “Out of this door might come something, or we might send something through it.” What “door” does Bertolucci refer to? Believe it or not, he is actually referencing a potential rift in space-time that could result from experimentation with the LHC, and warns that unspecified “somethings” could indeed interact with this realm as a result of experiments with the massive machine.
“We’re hoping to see supersymmetry and extra dimensions,” said Bertolucci, who also postulates that, though the discovery would be ground-breaking, the event he warns of would be rather small, if noticeable. “Of course, after this tiny moment the door would again shut, bringing us back to our ‘normal’ four dimensional world … It would be a major leap in our vision of Nature, although of no practical use (for the time being, at least). And of course, no risk to the stability of our world.”
That’s reassuring… until Mothman comes through the dimensional doorway with a legion of Mothmen to take over Earth in the name of King Hybreed Manthuzlar IIV. Only time will tell, I suppose.by
