This article was shared by Mr. V.T., and I’ve simply got to blog about it, given all the concerns about CERN’s large hadron collider:
So what’s the conCERN here? Where’s the high octane speculation? China wants to build a bigger better version of CERN’s Large Hadron Collider, so what?
In my book, The Third Way, I called CERN’s LHC a “cosmology cartel”, for the simple philosophical reason that it was a monopoly on cosmological-quantum mechanical science; there was no way to independently check its results unless one built a similar or larger collider, and hence, “big science” had marched itself into a philosophical corner: how would one duplicate results and confirm an experiment independently of the CERN Cartel itself? The question assumes some importance since CERN claims to have found the Higgs boson, the so-called “God-particle” that, in the standard theory, is responsible for imparting mass. Some, though not many, have questioned the result, thus casting a faint but palpable pall over its scientific ukases.
The only way to combat and verify such a priesthood is to have your own collider, and reperform the same experiments, which China wants to do.
