6.18 – THE GOD PARTICLE (8.15.14)


Geneva, Switzerland. Outside the headquarters of CERN’s Large Hadron Collider is a 12-foot statue of the Shiva Nataraja, or the Dancing Shiva, one of Hinduism’s most powerful gods.

“Lord Shiva is one of the three great gods of the Hindu teaching. He is the god of destruction. His job is to destroy, but it is in order to renew. He destroys and creates. His energy, the dance he’s considered the lord of the dance, a cosmic dance, and it is the dance of destruction and recreation.”

– Jonathan Young, Ph.D.

“God Shiva is a complex character. It’s very difficult to understand Shiva in one word, because he is the god of procreation, and he is also the god of destruction. He is also the god that destroys everything, because everything that is created must come to an end.”

– Deepak Shimkhada, Ph.D.
(Adjunct Prof. of Religion, Claremont Graduate Univ.),
(Prof. of Hindu Studies, Claremont Lincoln Univ.,
School of Theology)

According to Hindu mythology, Shiva is the god who will one day destroy the Universe to make way for a new one.

“Shiva’s cosmic dance is not seen as a negative, even though it is greatly destructive. It is destroying in order for something new to be created. So, it is an essential part of the process of life that things are cleared away so new things, new possibilities, better possibilities can emerge.”

– Jonathan Young, Ph.D.

But could the various attributes associated with this Hindu god be connected to a recent discovery made at the Large Hadron Collider about how our Universe could suddenly and catastrophically end?

“One of the intriguing outcomes of the Higgs boson mass measurement is the realization that the Higgs boson and the top quark may put us right on the ragged edge of an instability condition in the Universe. The Universe can exist in several different states. Water. It can exist as steam, as liquid water, frozen ice. If the Universe changes state, it would produce bubbles of space-time expanding at the speed of light that could destroy everything, all normal matter, all, everything in the Universe as we know it.”

– Robert H. Frisbee, Ph.D.
(Propulsion Systems Engineer, NASA JPL, Ret.)

“Some people are seeing theories that say there’s going to be expanding bubbles of nothingness that will create new whole new Universes. And, in a sense, we know that the Universe has to be unstable because it made the big bang in the first place.”

Could Shiva not only be a mythological deity that represents the ancient Hindus’ understanding of the Universe, but might he also have been an otherworldly being who passed on information to our ancestors that we are only now rediscovering?

“Maybe the great god Shiva, the destroyer, was actually trying to communicate in ancient times things that we’re learning today about breaking things down to the finest particles and understanding that these are how we understand the basis of life at a subatomic level.”

– Jason Martell

(Author, Knowledge Apocalypse)

“In Hindu tradition, Shiva was often portrayed as blue-skinned with a third eye in the middle of his forehead. And if you look at the different depictions of Shiva’s dance, you see that he is almost always surrounded by some type of a circular structure with flames.”

– Giorgio A. Tsoukalos
(Publisher, Legendary Times Magazine)

“We see parallels to technology where he’s always depicted in this circle when he’s doing his cosmic dance. It seems very similar to what we see at the Hadron Accelerator in this large circular particle accelerator. Maybe there’s some tie-in between Shiva being depicted in a circular device and the way we’re smashing particles now in the Hadron Accelerator.”

– Jason Martell

“Now, what did our human ancestor artists try to depict here? Do the accounts of his cosmic dance refer to some type of misunderstood technology, very much similar to the Large Hadron Collider?”

– Giorgio A. Tsoukalos
(Publisher, Legendary Times Magazine)

“In the Catholic Mass, there is a ceremonial artifact called a monstrance. If you look at this image, if you look at this item, it has a burst of light. Very similar to the pattern of Shiva’s light, this dance of creation. Some say this shape can be seen in the Hadron Collider at CERN.”

Does this suggest that the invention of tools, like the Large Hadron Collider, are happening as part of a plan? Did celestial beings who came to Earth in the distant past give early humans insights into the origin of existence? Ancient Astronaut Theorists believe the answers may be found not in what CERN has already uncovered, but in discoveries yet to come.
