In November of 2009, CERN's Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is scheduled for completion. With it, physicists from around the world hope to answer, well, everything. More accurately, it is hoped that a unified theory of everything (TOE) will emerge that describes the nature of all things, from the very small to the very large. As things stand now, separate theories can predict interactions between elementary particles, for example, and between planets, but not both – the theories do not scale and are, consequently, incomplete or even flawed.
With a theory of everything, it is hoped that we can explain gravity, dark matter/energy, the origins of our universe, and much more. Personally, I'm holding my breath for a scientific explanation of Jeri Curl, if such knowledge won't threaten to destroy our reality.
This track is a celebration of CERN's Large Hadron Collider, with just a dash of sexual innuendo thrown in for good measure. Not to worry, I steered well clear of the cliche "black hole" double-entendres, as should you. Warp speed, Mr. Sulu!
