I have seen the videos of how the LHC works and am quite amazed by it. Since the 1940 technology has moved so far forward it got me thinking.
Maybe the design for the LHC was left with us by an ancient alien civilization as they use this process to create worm holes and travel from universe to universe. They deliberately left it here in the knowledge that one day mankind would one day get it going. When we actually do we will then visit the very species that gave us this idea. They will visit us and gauge if we are ready to ascend to a type 1 civilization.
Unfortunely they will see the wars and divisions here, destroy the LHC and tell us to come back in another thousand years once we fix up.
Just my theory

As brilliant as our physicists and cosmologists are, they still don't understand gravity. My theory is that once the so-called Higgs boson "imparted" mass to the universe, it's job was done, and it no longer exists, unless we might find them around the exit point of a white hole, where matter has been postulated to re-enter the universe somewhere. Maybe white holes exist in an anti-universe. Would you call them anti-Higgs bosons at that point? Who knows? Maybe what was left over from the Higgs is dark matter or dark energy. In a sense, it's like approaching zero...you can keep getting smaller and smaller but you never get there. The quarks have quarks, and the quarks quarks have quarks. As impossibly large as universes are, shouldn't they be equally as small in the other direction?
