Somehow I feel is it necessary that we should conduct this sort of experiments? Not that I am afraid that the conduct of the experiment leads to a catastrophe. But no one really knows what happens after the conduct of the experiment. They are only enamored that they understand the conditions before Big Bang clearly.There were four brothers long long back. It was the period when kings were ruling. Of the four brothers, the first one is adept in restricting the scattered bones of any animal or human to its skeleton. The second brother is capable of infusing blood and flesh into it. The third brother can breathe life into the structure life. As usual despite their knowledge and abilities they are poor.
We know Goddess Saraswati and Goddess Lakshmi are daughter-in-law and mother-in-law and they cannot stand each other and cannot stay together.
So the brothers wanted to exhibit their skills before the king of the day and get rewarded by him. Their fourth brother is a fit for nothing fellow. He is neither knowledgeable nor adept in any skill as his other three brothers.
So when the brothers started for the capital to meet the king the fourth brother also desired to go with them But the others refused saying you are fit for nothing fellow why should you come at all. But the fourth brother pleaded with them volunteering to carry their luggage and requested them to allow him to accompany them. They reluctantly agreed.
As was the normal practice those days, all of them started by foot to reach the capital. They had to pass through a thick forest on the way. While they are proceeding through the forest, the brothers saw the remains of an animal. The first brother recognized them to be of a lion. The three brothers have got inspired by its sight and wanted to exhibit their skill of bringing it back to life. The fourth brother was dead against it. He told them: “Brothers, lion is a cruel animal and once you give it life, it will pounce on us and kill us. But the three brothers laughed away his statement as fear of an innocent fellow and said that when they gave life to it, it will never harm them. But the fourth brother is not convinced. He said he will climb a tree and they can proceed with their unwise act. The fourth brother climbed a tree a bit away.
The first brother arranged the remains of the lion as its skeleton. The second brother infused blood and flesh into it. The third brother breathed life into it. And the lion got life and rose. As it has not taken any thing for many days and is hungry it pounced upon the three brothers and devoured them. The fourth brother watching all this from the tree was very sad not only for the death of his brothers but also for the lack of common sense and wisdom in his brothers. He returned back to his village as a shattered man.

|Thank you, Sri sharbaaniranjankundu, for the kind attention and discerning observations. Your thinking is humane. I am encouraged by the empathy shared by you.|
|Dr V R, I fully agree to what you have said. I was always of the opinion, man's search for extra-terrestrial life is foolish. The logic has been like this:|
Earth is a finite thing. So, resources are finite. So, how can space vehicles be sent to infinite distances to scour the Universe? Second, creation of Atom bomb has created havoc to this world. Some people may point out atomic energy. How much & for how long? Actually, lot of scientists are demonic in their approach to science. History of Science has convinced me that Science has been mostly rich man's pastime. Though the society has reaped a lot of benefits, it has done a lot of damage too. From a simple knife to missile, how much sin man has committed is for everybody to ponder over. I do not know why human beings do this, but in my opinion people should be wiser and more mature and stop destruction of this beautiful earth. I am sure one day, CERN Hadron collider will be some kind of relic as we humans winess many relics spread all over the earth. I would request over-inquisitive scientists to go through some of the books of ISKON to have some understanding of the universe rather than being over-curious about big bang. Actually, these over curious scientists in my opinion are corrupt people who sell dreams to common man so that they do not question squandering of tax payers' money. I am sorry I have to pen this but I could not help doing this as I want human beings to be less greedy. Greed of knowledge is also not good. That I have personally experienced in life, coming from a family of educated, knowledgable and accomplished people.

|Understandable Indignation at the excesses of science to achieve knowledge of fundamental facts has yet, in the past, had beneficial spin-off effects for mankind: in a nut shell, the ever-advancing wonders of industry and technology. From tinkering around in the lab with calorimeters exploring the second law of thermodynamics arose the internal combustion engine and the refrigerator; from exploring magnetic and electric induction in simple spinning wires and coils around magnetic cores were developed generators of electricity to light up cities.|
However, the more science has progressed, so in exponential fashion has been the cost of pursuit of what can be termed 'the remaining mysteries'. This was already heralded by space exploration, where the public has been given the full treatment of the utterly inhospitable conditions on the moon, Mars, and by probes, Venus, Saturn et al, and yet expected to wonder at the near miraculous feat performed at such cost as the only, for generations to come, reward. Somehow, we've been conditioned to view the ugly, barren planets in a new light, so that they appear as 'beautiful' as the commentator, usually an astronomer of irritating youthful looks, describes them on HD TV.
This fanaticism of scientific endeavour is well reined in by a scientist like yourself who can see the absurdity in expending so much time and money on what are increasingly projects that appear to have no relevance to solving the problems of human life and conditions on earth. Yet, we owe it to the development of the nuclear bomb to preserve post-WW2 peace between the super-powers, and thus in the world; a direct contradiction it would appear to the device in potentiality of its use when first it raised its monstrous head.
The pursuit of ultimate knowledge of what constitutes matter as enshrined in the Higgs boson project at such enormous cost underscores the search for the truth that was initiated with the Enlightenment, where through the centuries, the tradition of science has been literally as a search for 'what is' such as religious faith for rising generations could no longer sustain. This search for truth too has enormous implications for the scientific method: it is almost of corner-stone significance. That is why it has to be pursued, even at almost infinite cost; we are approaching the pinnacle of enlightenment, or so it is believed.
'Man does not llive by bread alone,' says Jesus in Matt:4:4, 'but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.' And if science has substituted God, at least in theory, then the life of man is sustained by every word from the mouth of science.
