What economic crisis has to do with the Large Hadron Collider?

The very day the US securities and exchange commission, fearing catastrophic collapse of the US stock market, banned short selling, the Large Hadron Collider in Europe allegedly suffered a catastrophic failure…

Wake up to what is happening

On September 19, 2008, Professor Stephen Hawking and John C. Taylor unveiled to the world the “Corpus Clock”, a mysterious clock now on display outside of the Taylor Library at Corpus Christi College, Cambridge, UK. Stephen Hawking returned from the launch of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) to unveil the clock.

John C. Taylor said that the clock “is terrifying. It is meant to be… I view time as not on your side. He’ll eat up every minute of your life…” He refers to the “Chronophage,” the locust at the top of the clock as “demonic”, and states “Time is gone. He’s eaten it.”

The inscription at the base of this mysterious clock, which incorporates six undisclosed patented inventions, and which had components constructed at a secret military research facility in Holland, is from the Vulgate translation of John 2:17: “Mundus transit et concupiscentia eius” … “The world passeth away, and the lust thereof.”

This passage is in reference to John 2:13 to John 2:16, in which Jesus throws the moneychangers out of the Temple.

On September 19, 2008, the US securities and exchange commission, fearing total collapse of the US stock market, banned short selling, and the Large Hadron Collider allegedly suffered a catastrophic failure. Stephen Hawking had a $100 bet that the collider would fail to find the Higgs-Boson particle, otherwise known as “The God Particle.”

On September 20, 2008, Treasury secretary Henry Paulson and Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke told Congress they must back a government buy up of $700bn dollars of bad mortgages.

We, a group of concerned individuals, have since the unveiling of the Corpus Clock been conducting heavy research concerning the creators of this clock, and the strange occult symbolism embedded within it’s design.

We are working to make our research public, in order to inform the public and allow people to draw their own conclusions about this mysterious device and its origins and purpose.

Corpus Clock conspiracy

At the top of the clock, is a mechanical device that John C. Taylor refers to as “The Chronophage,” from the words “chrono” (time) and “phage” (eat). The Chronophage, according to Taylor, is a “demonic” locust which “devours” the minutes of the day. Created by sculptor Matthew Lane Sanderson, the Chronophage is an implementation of the “Grasshopper Escapement,” a low friction escapement for pendulum clocks invented by British clockmaker John Harrison in 1722.
 

 
We find Taylor’s choice of the word “demonic” in reference to the Chronophage, combined with the quote at the base of the clock concerning the end of the world to be deeply disturbing in light of this passage from the Book of Revelations:

9:1 The fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star from the sky which had fallen to the earth. The key to the pit of the abyss was given to him.

9:2 He opened the pit of the abyss, and smoke went up out of the pit, like the smoke from a burning furnace. The sun and the air were darkened because of the smoke from the pit.

9:3 Then out of the smoke came forth locusts on the earth, and power was given to them, as the scorpions of the earth have power.

9:4 They were told that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree, but only those people who don’t have God’s seal on their foreheads.

9:5 They were given power not to kill them, but to torment them for five months. Their torment was like the torment of a scorpion, when it strikes a person.

9:6 In those days people will seek death, and will in no way find it. They will desire to die, and death will flee from them.

9:7 The shapes of the locusts were like horses prepared for war. On their heads were something like golden crowns, and their faces were like people’s faces.

9:8 They had hair like women’s hair, and their teeth were like those of lions.

9:9 They had breastplates, like breastplates of iron. The sound of their wings was like the sound of chariots, or of many horses rushing to war.

9:10 They have tails like those of scorpions, and stings. In their tails they have power to harm men for five months.

9:11 They have over them as king the angel of the abyss. His name in Hebrew is “Abaddon,” but in Greek, he has the name “Apollyon.”

Corpus Clock conspiracy

“It has taken seven years research and construction, incorporates six patented inventions, and is predicted to run for at least 250 years assuming the world lasts that long.” — Maev Kennedy, The Guardian, Sept. 18, 2008.

“And the locust went up over all the land of Egypt, and rested in all the coasts of Egypt: very grievous were they; before them there were no such locusts as they, neither after them shall be such.” — Exodus 10:14.

We will release our research here as quickly as we can compile together our data.

We provide here for your curiosity and convenience, the officially released video of the unveiling of the Corpus Clock and the Chronophage.

  1. [...] With the recent economic turmoil, how does the economy relate to the Large Hadron Collider? [...]

  2. big O says:

    Big deal. It’s a symbolic clock. I cannot believe someone spent this much time, money, and effort devising this monstrosity which is difficult to read. Wow! Time is an invention of mankind. The Sun comes up and the Sun goes down. Change equals Time and Change is eternal. Nothing new…

    “Symbolic” clock using six classified inventions and constructed at a military research facility? ;-)

  4. Lorna says:

    before getting into ‘demonic locusts’, why not have a word with the designer – http://www.sanderson-sculpture.com.
    Speaking as a designer myself, this is just a beautifully constructed well designed piece of art – it’s supposed to be a bit scary, it’s about time, and fear of mortality.

  5. admin says:

    Thank you for the link, Lorna. Your comment is very interesting. We are all, and above all, attracted by the “look and feel” of the things. Of course this clock is a piece of art. That’s how it looks. But inside of this “piece of art” there is something created by a physicists involved in the LHC program. So, if there is a mystery, it is certainly not “demonic” or “mystical,” but scientific.

  6. Jonah Dempcy says:

    another explanation is that it is a synchronicity, and the art taps into the zeitgeist and themes of the time. though, I certainly see the occult undertones. the thing is, art is supposed to be rich in meaningful symbolism– and what better symbolism to draw from than the current mileu, the collective unconscious or gestalt of humanity.

    the synchromystic bloggers (goro adachi, jake kotze et al) study mainstream media, news, films and pop culture events as these are the myths and legends of our time. these artifacts of pop culture and mass media events essentially serve the same purpose psychologically (and offer the same synchronistic connections, ostensibly) as myths of yore.

    but, there are many possibilities. for instance, take this matrix generated from looking at two possible realities: that the piece is created intentionally (i.e. with knowledge of the financial crash), or that it was a synchronicity.

    1. it could be that it was purposeful, and not synchronistic.
    2. it could be that it was synchronistic, and not purposeful.
    3. it could be that it was purposeful and synchronistic.
    4. it could be that it was neither purposeful nor synchronistic.

    even just framing the challenge in this way shows some of the subtleties of the question.

    i look forward to reading your exploration into this topic, and i encourage everyone to keep an open mind and weigh all possibilities without ascribing to any particular belief system.

    Thank you Jonah. And your music accompanies very well the Chronophage walk ;-) :

    Thank you very much for your attempt to disclose these facts. It looked to weird to me to put so much effort to create such an ugly thing, no matter how genious the creator was. For me, art should be always somethings extremely beautiful and refined, to uplift you from your human condition to a divin, superiour one. But what has this horrible thing to do with art??
    And the official statements seemed to be weird too.
    What do they meant through: ‘assuming the world lasts that long’? or: ‘this clock is eating every minute of your life?’
    I think is really important for every human being with little bit of brain to try to know more than what the mass media owners are throwing to us through TV, Radio, newspapers and lately through internet.
    That’s why I’m already grateful for your intentions and efforts.
    Looking forward to read your researches in the field. Mayi-li

    Interesting device. Much ado about nothing.

    The clock face clearly appears to be the Sun. The iconography of the locust type creature is to direct our attention to the movement of a destructive force around the disc of the Sun. What precesses around the Sun? A prime candidate could be the Sun’s magnetic pole which is said to be out of sync with the electric pole. Periodically there is said to be a sychronisation when there is a huge influence on sunspot activity and radiation fields emanating from the Sun. Some say these pole synchronicities are the same as the time periods of the Mayan Long Count. 2012 is the end of the Long Count, a final synchronicity in the current matrix. There is hidden knowledge in our society, but all will be revealed.
