See You All in A Few Billion Years!
By now, of course, everyone knows that the world will end tomorrow. When they flip the switch on the Large Hadron Collider it will suck into itself all the mass in the known universe and begin a new big bang sequence. That will be it. We'll have to wait billions of years again before we will have consciousness and be able to figure out what happened. Oh wait, we won't have access to anything on the other side of that massive singularity, will we? From what I can tell this has happened hundreds or millions of times before. It's a vicious cycle. Man develops to the point where he can make and create a huge particle accelerator complex like the LHC. He fires it up and we start all over again. Sad. There's no way for us to ever learn our lesson. We're doomed to living it over and over again. Nobody can come back from the future to warn us because we destroy the future and start all over again. Bummer. Where's my credit card?
