A couple of points to start with.
The LHC is not capable of creating wormholes. It was supposed that it was POSSIBLE that incredibly small black holes might have been produced under
certain conditions, and even then they themselves would have been unstable, and would have only existed for femtoseconds , having a negligable effect
on the imediate space around them, and virtualy none at all on anything else. You dont have to take my word for it, look it up . A wormhole is a
totaly different occurance, requiring circumstances which have NEVER been recorded by science , anywhere in this galaxy, or anywhere else in the
universe that we know of. Now , I admit that theres no way to say that they simply dont exist, but there is a good reason why the LHC would not be
able to create the circumstances for the existance of such a thing. Consider the following if you please. One of the main arguments against
contrivances like faster than light travel, is that in order to break the speed of light barrier, an object would have to produce, and control more
power than exists in the universe (again, these arent my theories but you should look them up before commenting ). All that just to create a wave
front which would push the object along . Its basicaly making space ripple and riding the wave.Thats the stripped down premise. But a wormhole is a
much more complex and energy hungry idea. It basicaly creates a situation where space time actualy gets a hole bored in it, from one spot, to another
far distant spot. Creating a wormhole means tearing a gap in space time, and keeping it open, and both ends rooted to thier places . So rather than
mere FTL which only exerts energy on the immediate vicinity of the craft or object which is being proppelled, a wormhole would require energy along
its entire length, and at the breech points in space time. If FTL is still questioned and poked at by mathematics as a tough gig, I sincerely doubt
that such a grand and energy hungry venture as a stable wormhole into space time is going to be possible with our current tech level! We just havent
the energy required at this time, and we have no way to aquire it at the moment, let alone the mathematical language to express the method by which
one could be pheasibly created!
Ok , disclosure. I have been ready for disclosure ever since I was able to think, and remember what I thought (the two are not the same, on that you
can trust me
). Many people fear change , fear what they do not understand, what they have never seen before. Its a good survival tool, if you happen
to be born in the dark ages, where that which you do not know, has just cut off your head and stollen your daughters and your purse.
However in this time, I do not believe that such thinking is helpful, and I have never been particularly enamoured of it. I walk the streets and see
all manner of lives lived, and cultures expressed, and as beautiful as it can be to witness, I understand the dark corners of human existance all to
well to want to delve into them deeply and often. It could send a person mad trying to comprehend the sheer amount we hold ourselves back from
progress, from technological and ecological benifits, like clean power with no waste (only made impossible by the monopoly on energy distribution
enjoyed by the global oil and energy corperations total insistance on only funding projects that make thier pockets bigger) , to improvements in
political and social ethics.
If it turns out that there is some species out there , intelligent and willing to communicate , then I for one would relish the chance to study a
culture I am not familiar with, to see if any of the dark corners of our culture, are lit in the visitors culture. It would be refreshing , and
staggering, and enchanting to delve into the history and the culture of a species from outside our own expirience , if only to illustrate that there
is hope for thinking beings, that intellect does not always lead to negativity . Of course if it turned out that this other culture was just as busted
as our own in that regard, then perhaps that would be no bad thing. Some seem to think that humanity is the biggest disease ever to have lived, and on
its darkest days I could pretty much agree with that assesment. But at least if it was the case that the same problems exist outside of our speices,
then we would not be alone in our self loathing, and self destruction. We would have a understanding party who could be objective about our issues, as
our patriotism often prevents some of us from doing for ourselves.
I think on many levels disclosure has the potential for serious benifits across a range of factors which act on this planet. From the physical to the
psychological , there are considerations to be made about the effects of disclosure absolutely no doubt, but in terms of people saying "even if there
are aliens we should never know" or "we're better off in the dark" I can never agree with that. As a thinking being, its what I consider a duty
for me to aquire any information I can, to increase the accuracy of my world veiw, so that my actions best suit the situation. The same goes for the
population of this planet as a whole I think. If the human race is to advance one day from the face of this world onto others, (something I think will
be imperative in the future) then its best to get the very best and most accurate information about what is out there, that it is possible to have,
and its important to have that information as soon as possible. After all , its like the old saying goes :
Proper Planning Prevents Pissball Performance.
