Portals and Possibilities

There is a huge discussion happening on social media regarding July 5th, 2022. On that date CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, will start the third run of its large Hadron Collider. This machine has been on a 3-year pause for upgrades and maintenance. The collider was constructed in 2008 and has conducted many experiments. In 2012 it was able to discover a rare particle named the Higgs particle. Scientists were so excited about this discovery they nicknamed the particle the “God particle.” For the July 5th run, the collider is expected to reach a new energy world record of 13.6 trillion electronvolts (13.6 TeV) in some of its collisions. Basically, this acceleration will allow the collider to smash together billions upon billions of protons for the chance of producing the Higgs particle as well as other particles they believe were created in the early universe.

Social media such as TicTok, YouTube, and platforms such as Reddit have had ongoing discussions and theories about what may happen as a result of this energy. The predominant claim is that a portal will open, much like a black hole, and this will allow “dark matter” to enter our field. So we are warned to avoid “low energy” on July 5th. Avoid controversies, avoid arguments, and avoid anything that might bring you down. Social media warns that people who are in a low vibe of energy will suffer the most and begin behaving in erratic and possibly violent ways.

I wonder what more we can ponder in this already crazy world that we have been living in for the past two years. I would never have thought that I would have lived through a pandemic. I would never have imagined that our city would shut down for almost 12 months, with a very slow return to almost normal. In fact, we will never be like we were before 2020.

Finding out about this CERN event prompted me to do research on things that I had never known before. The emphasis on the accelerated speed of the collider possibly producing or discovering “dark matter” had me curious. According to NASA, dark matter is composed of particles that do not absorb, reflect, or emit light, so they cannot be detected. Dark matter is material that cannot be seen directly. 

So basically what you are saying is that on July 5th this huge event will take place where acceleration will occur that has never been done before, and it may possibly discover particle/s that we have never before been able to identify but definitely have been part of our world.

Ok, I am interested. It just so happens that this event is going to have a film director and screening of “Particle Fever“, and is viewable online on July 3rd.

On July 4th there will be a live webcast continuing the countdown to the big event. I am not sure I will tune into that. Instead, I am going to pull out my book Chariots of the Gods, by Erich von Doniken. This book is a must-read. It was written in the late 60s and I think I have read it 12 times at least. This collider, portal, dark matter, and black hole stuff has me thinking about this book. Chariots of the Gods is all about world mysteries. How civilizations from centuries ago were able to construct things with great precision.

I visited Chichen Itza, which is on the Yucatan peninsula of Mexico. I was able to climb the ruins and walk through the amazing observatory called El Caracol. This planetarium, if you will, was made with such precise astrological knowledge that to this day scientists are unable to explain how such a primitive group as the Mayans were able to construct it. All of its window openings follow the celestial bodies and carry some astrological significance. Moreover, the hieroglyphics in this area are astounding.

Hieroglyphics from the Temple of Copan depict a modern space astronaut with flames and gases coming from his feet suggesting propulsion.

In Chariots of the Gods, there is a photograph of a hieroglyphic that looks to be a man in a space suit. The question is, how would such a primitive civilization know this? Topping that off, many historians cannot explain definitively what eventually happened to the Mayans. Some catastrophic events occurred and wiped most of them out.

So what will you be doing on July 5th? Most of us will be back at work on that day. I think it is good advice, in any event, to keep your energies high. No need to let that pesky dark energy into your world.

Kelly Tarrant

Chicago is my hometown. I am a Morgan Park resident. I was raised on the south-east side of Chicago in a neighborhood called Hegewisch. My grandparents on both sides immigrated here, from Ireland and from Mexico. We are a steel mill/iron-working family by trade. My four children were raised in Chicago and went through wonderful Chicago Public Schools. They have all grown to be responsible, intelligent, and inclusive young adults. I hope to continue to provide dialogue with others who care enough to help make a difference.
