Authors Note - I have seen numerous comment threads and discussions where people mock and criticize those leery of the restarting of the CERN Large Hadron Collider (LHC), which many believe not only restarting it is a bad idea with too many unknowns to hope to control that kind of power, but restarting it at double the power outlay as previously used, is asking for what could be an extinction level event. Some also believe this could literally open up the "gates of hell."
Well..... it isn't only "conspiracy theorists" that are talking about such things.
The IFLScience website highlights a physics Letter B Paper titled "Absence of black holes at LHC due to gravity's rainbow," where we see scientific research which indicates the very real possibility of CERN truly opening extra dimensions and parallel universes.
Few ideas from theoretical physics capture the public imagination as much as the “many-worlds hypothesis,” which proposes an infinite number of universes that differ from our own in ways large and small. The idea has provided great fodder for science fiction writers and comedians.
However, according to Professor Mir Faizal from the University of Waterloo, "Normally, when people think of the multiverse, they think of the many-worlds interpretation of quantum mechanics, where every possibility is actualized," he said to Phys.org. "This cannot be tested and so it is philosophy and not science." Nonetheless, Faizal considers the test for a different sort of parallel universes almost within our grasp.
“What we mean is real universes in extra dimensions,” says Faizal. “As gravity can flow out of our universe into the extra dimensions, such a model can be tested by the detection of mini black holes at the LHC.”
For those that understand the technical aspects of this type of experimentation, the entire Letter B Paper can be found here and the PFD can be downloaded here.
