The CERN physicists want to push the energy so hard, elevate the heat and luminosity of the plasma soup so extremely, that unpredictable events occur.
That's the word they use. “Unpredictable.”
Do we really want to hear particle physicists say, “Wow. I didn't think THAT was going to happen. Oh noooooooooo!!!!!!!”– ????
What if you could tamper with the fabric of existence, the ground of reality, the space-time continuum itself? Many think this is the new big thing in science.
Whether you think it's reckless, spooky, or wonderful, this is where we're heading: into new dimensions and new energies that are unimaginable. Whatever happens, this LHC restart is something to keep an eye on, for sure.
