I wonder how all this plays in with the fact that these particles seem to be self aware. At the very least, they are aware of us, and know when we are watching them.

Isn't this a paradox? Wouldn't they already be here?

And the reason they are cooling down to just that temperature is because:
As such preparations for the formal September 10th start date continue, the entire machine has been successfully cooled to temperatures below minus 270ºC, a fraction of a degree above the lowest achievable temperature.
In this temperature range, helium becomes a liquid, and is used to cool the superconducting magnets which keep the proton beams circulating at almost the speed of light as well as making the LHC the biggest refrigerator on the planet.
johnsky, thank for your contribution to the thread,

Hi Havalon - Could above mean, like, 'The Day After Tomorrow' (or the day Before 9/11???) if you get what I mean........, just my 2 p's worth.
Ethiopia celebrated their 3rd millenium on Sept/11-07, did you know that ? Therefore Sept/10-07 was the end of their year 1999. In Ethiopian 'time' we are still in the first year of the millenium. Hebrew calendar is older, Thai calendar too, and others probably too, .... we've changed 'time' in the past, messing with calendars...... and we still do - with daylight saving etc. WHO's time is the RIGHT time ??? LOL !
I think the 'time' stuff has been getting noticeably 'faster' for some while now - if you link up to what has been disclosed by many on other 'time line' threads. People also experiencing more synchronicities, deja vu's and such like. I 'feel' an undercurrent of terror happening for a lot of people on this site.
There are quite a few people (scientists too) uneasy about the LHC - tests n stuff have been going on there for quite some time now.......
Peace n LOVE to y'all

as someone has probably already posted, the amount of energy it would take in order to open up a wormhole or portal of some type that could transport a man would be equivilant to converting the entire mass of Jupiter into energy. Sorry, we just can't do that yet.
One sticking point until now for wormhole concepts is finding an exotic kind of material capable of keeping the maw of the wormhole open for time travel.
Dark energy - a mysterious antigravity force that is thought to pervade the universe - could, they say, be just what is needed to keep the entrance to a wormhole open, at least according to one family of ideas about its nature, where it is called phantom energy.
The synchronization of the LHC's clockwise beam transfer system and the rest of CERN's accelerator chain was successfully achieved last weekend. Tests began on Friday 8 August when a single bunch of a few particles was taken down the transfer line from the SPS accelerator to the LHC. After a period of optimization, one bunch was kicked up from the transfer line into the LHC beam pipe and steered about 3 kilometres around the LHC itself on the first attempt. On Saturday, the test was repeated several times to optimize the transfer before the operations group handed the machine back for hardware commissioning to resume on Sunday. The anti-clockwise synchronization systems will be tested over the weekend of 22 August.
