Bird tells the story of the eucharist on the eve of the god particle discovery.
On the very eve of the Cross, Jesus took from soil and stream, (bread), -and said, “this is my body which is broken for you”. Why did the church rush to a general conclusion that he was speaking metaphorically. Of course, Jesus spoke frequently in metaphor. But Scarlet Point suggests that this was one of those cases where he was making a clear ontological statement disclosing his identity as the life giver of the Cosmos and particularly that tomorrow’s event on the cross was the essence of the grand Cosmic narrative. That it’s His broken body that sustains the Universe including our frail lives.
How beautiful then, to take of soil & stream and in an humble piece of bread tell us what $13.25 Billion and thousands of scientist and engineers are trying to tell us, that “in the beginning”, something broke so we could live!
God shouldn’t have let the search for the Higgs Boson happen, unless he didn’t mind humans snooping around in the very guts of where Jesus interfaces with the material Universe to “Consist” it as Paul states to the Colossians.
Of course, the god particle was eventually discovered and confirmed in recent months, but I still can’t leave marvelling at this enormous cosmic coincidence;
-On the eve of the cross, Jesus took bread, broke it and said, “This is my body, broken for you”.
-On the eve of the most powerful ‘breaking apart of the universe’ ever accomplished by man, a bird quietly drops a piece of broken bread into the collider’s circuitry and provides a brief eucharist on the eve of the ultimate discovery clinching that the cosmos itself is the “Lamb Slain From The Foundaton Of The World.”

Peckish bird briefly downs big atom smasher
November 9th, 2009 in Physics / General Physics
Bits of a French loaf dropped on an external electrical power supply caused a short circuit last week, triggering failsafe devices that shut down part of the cooling system of the giant experiment to probe the secrets of the universe, CERN said.
The system was restored several hours after the incident last Tuesday while the multi-billion dollar Large Hadron Collider was barely affected, a spokeswoman said.
“The bird escaped unharmed but lost its bread,” CERN said in a statement.
“The knock-on effects included an interruption to the operation of the LHC cryogenics system.”
The 27 kilometre-long (17 mile) particle collider, which runs in a circular tunnel under the French-Swiss border near the city of Geneva, has been plagued by problems since it was briefly started up in September 2008.
However, CERN said the latest incident was minor and did not affect attempts to restart the accelerator later this month following repairs.
“It made for a small warming from absolute zero (minus 273 degrees Celsius, minus 459 degrees Fahrenheit) on the Celsius scale to minus 268 degrees but the machine was not stopped,” CERN spokesman Renilde Vanden Broek told AFP.
“Everything returned to normal a few hours later and operations were able to resume in the night of November 5,” she added.
Designed to shed light on the origins of the universe, the LHC at CERN took nearly 20 years to complete and cost six billion Swiss francs (3.9 billion euros, 4.9 billion dollars) to build.
The bird was believed to be an owl.
