The collider, the particle and a theory about fate

October 14, 2009

A pair of otherwise distinguished physicists have suggested that the hypothesized Higgs boson, which physicists hope to produce with the [Large Hadron] collider, might be so abhorrent to nature that its creation would ripple backward through time and stop the collider before it could make one, like a time traveler who goes back in time to kill his grandfather.

"It must be our prediction that all Higgs producing machines shall have bad luck. [… God] rather hates Higgs particles, and attempts to avoid them."

So. Awesome.
