A Stretch or a Reach: Did We End with 2012? *CONSPIRACY*

Now I’m not saying this is true, but some theorists, like Stephen Hawking believe that in 2012, our universe went into a “catastrophic vacuum decay.” Hawking’s theory suggests that the recent discovery of the Higgs boson could one day destroy the universe.

There is a theory that one day, we will face a Higgs boson doomsday, and the world we know of will no longer exist — or will it?

One claim from theoretical physicist, Stephen Hawking, says that the Higgs potential, in reference to the potential energy of the Higgs field, “has the worrisome feature that it might become metastable at energies above 100bn gigaelectronvolts (GeV).”

However, scientists believe that we are probably living in a metastable state under the right amount of energy and we have nothing to worry about.

With that, we might have vanished into an alternate universe without ever knowing such a thing happened.

BUT, how could we?

If the Earth were ever to experience vacuum decay, it would happen at the speed of light. Ergo, we would have no warning.

Although, that is highly unlikely to happen, and if it did, it would take a VERY long time.

Since the Higgs Field is everywhere, what is stopping it from taking us to an alternate universe, or one with little difference to our own? One Twitter thread by Nick Hinton gave a whole slew of ideas behind some of these theories, and he agrees that nothing has “felt right” since 2012.

It is hard to tell whether we have been through some form of universal decay, but there is something a little off since 2012. Does anyone else remember Sketchers?

Because now it’s Skechers…but that usually has to do with the Mandela Effect.

Come back next time for another round of conspiracies!
