Speed of light broken

Speed of light broken?

If CERN scientists are correct in claiming they have observed particles travelling faster than the speed of light it would fundamentally change our understanding of the laws of physics, experts say. 



Prof Jenny Thomas, of University College London, says the claims, if proven true, would call into question our very understanding of physics and the universe.
She said: "It would turn everything on its head. It is too awful to think about.
"The basic thing it that would be questioned is that there is an absolute speed limit which is the basis of special relativity and that is a huge building block of modern physics.
"It permeates everything to do with how we have modelled the universe and everything. It would be very hard to predict what the effects would be."
Special relativity is integral to the understanding of particle accelerators and the creation of particle beams, which are of crucial importance in fields like medicine and engineering, she said.

It could even be that the most famous equation of all time, E=mc2, turns out to be incorrect because it is based on the law of special relativity, Prof Thomas said.
Before any conclusions can be drawn, the CERN team's results will be checked by scientists across the globe including at Fermilab near Chicago, where a similar experiment known as Minos is based.
Prof Thomas – the co-spokesperson for the Minos project – said the team had thrown up similar results several years ago but had discounted them because the possible margin of error was too high.
She said: "Our errors were rather large so we dismissed it. Nothing is further from your belief than that the results might be correct.
"When I heard about the Cern results my first thought was that they must be wrong, there must be something they have not taken into account."
Potential errors could occur in the measurement of distance between the point the particle was created and where it was detected; the time it took to travel from one point to the other; or in the structure of the accelerator which the whole measurement relies upon.
Prof Thomas added: "I think everyone is sceptical. The scientists themselves have admitted they are sceptical but they cannot see what they have done wrong.
"We will repeat our experiment with higher precision, hopefully in the next six months."
The Fermilab team will then begin a second stage of their experiment, called Minos Plus, which is even more similar to the Cern trial and will deliver results accurate to one nanosecond, she said.

Crop Circles - formations, usually found in grain crops, where the crop has been mysteriously found laid flat, in patterns, that did not exist in daylight the previous day. Although thought by many to be a phenomena of the 20th Century, crop circles and formations have been around for a very long time, and records even date back well before the invention of the camera.

The most well known positive depiction of a crop circle is found in a woodcut made in 1678 with the title 'Strange News out of Hartford-shire’.
It depicts a devil-like creature cutting out a pattern in a crop with a scythe.
The woodcut has text, which told of a greedy farmer, who, having refused to pay a mower a reasonable rate for reaping his oats, swore that he would rather have the Devil do the work. The very following morning, the farmer awoke to find his crop had been harvested, but done so in such an amazing manner, with rounded circles of incredible exactness that no human could have done the same within the period and darkness of one night. The farmer was so afraid that he could not enter the field to collect his harvest.

It is suggested by some cryptologists and others that crop circles are depicted in prehistoric stone and wall carvings, such as in the spiral patterns carved in a stone at Newgrange in Ireland. For those that hold the view that crop circles are created by extra-terrestrials in spacecraft, some would say that reasonable recorded proof of this is depicted in some ancient Egyptian pictures.
The recorded incidence of crop circles in more modern times seems to have started in the early 20th century, with a gradual increase in numbers through to a marked incr4ease in the 1960’s, leading to a quite dramatic upturn in the 1990’s. At least 190 formations were discovered and documented in 1999, perhaps an omen for what is to come in the new millennium.
There are many who are under the impression that crop circles are only indigenous to the U.K. Sure, they are more prevalent here than elsewhere in the world, but there are countless examples of them appearing all over the world - in the USA from 1920, in Europe from the mid 20th century and in Africa, Canada, Australia, Central & Southern America, Russia in 1970, and Japan in the late 70’s.
Many visitors to the U.K. are amazed to discover that crop circles actually appear in their own country.
What odds, that formations in the 21st century will be found on the surface of the Moon and Mars, and beyond? 


Crop Circles Call for New Attention

by Suzanne Taylor
We love our science fiction, but we titter when we talk about UFOs. What never gets discussed is how valuable it would be if extraterrestrials turned out to be the real deal. If we had our heads on straight, instead of raising our eyebrows at reports of sightings, we would be investigating them.

Establishing the reality of an intelligence that's at least comparable to ours would be the biggest news since Copernicus and Galileo. In their time, when it was established that Earth wasn't the center of the solar system, humanity was freed from a worldview in which our planet dominated the known universe. In that humbling new reality our social order no longer could hold, and, in less than lordly light, kings gave way to democracies.

With problems being global now, it's time for another new take on who we are and what we're doing here. It's imperative to get past the worldview of scientific materialism, which supports an ʺus or themʺ mentality in which whoever has the most toys wins and we resort to war to resolve conflicts. In relating to other intelligent life we would be one humanity, and the lid would be off the smallness in which we gun for one another.

It is reasonable to think that we can arrive at this awareness via the crop circle phenomenon. Scientific studies, written up in peer reviewed pieces in science journals, tell us that something beyond our reality is delivering the circles to us. While what makes the glyphs remains a mystery, just knowing something is watching us and signaling us is enough. It's that they are, not who they are that's important.
Finding out we aren't alone would be a huge deal. And, if that were established, there could be more. If they are visiting us, the technology possessed by ʺthe otherʺ would have to be more advanced than ours, and what they would be capable of perhaps could help us solve the environmental problems that threaten our very survival.
Why would our visitors be making crop circles instead of doing things that would be helpful to us? If sending circles is their hello, they could be awaiting an aha from us, where we get it that they exist. Then we would invite them in rather than fighting them off.
People hate being conned, which mitigates against accepting such a mindblowing reality. What can subsume that concern is an appreciation for the realm of mystery. And, openness to what we don't know would be good for us. It would keep us dreaming, which is a state in which amazing things could find their way into our reality grid.


Despite recent claims by hoaxers and others, the phenomena of crop circles and formations remains an enigma yet to be explained with any universal degree of acceptance.

There are many theories for their existence:
  • Whirlwind Vortex
  • Plasma Vortex
  • Earth Energies
  • Extra-Terrestrial Origin
  • Underground Archaeological
  • Chemical Applications (no longer considered)
  • Hoaxes
  • God Force
  • Military Experimentation

It seems significant, that particularly in the U.K., and more specially in Wiltshire, many formations appear near, or even within, ancient sacred sites and their like, coincidentally, places that are also said to have special earth energies or ley lines.
A vast majority of formations, contain, or seem to be, constructed by sacred geometry.
