CERN: European Laboratory For Network Collision

At CERN, net artists from all over the world study collisions between
highly energetic sub-site packets in order to learn about the
fundamental buidling blocks of meaning and the forces between them.

Take a trip back to where time began, at the big spam itself !

See the abstract signs showering down from the net, it's falling on you
too !

Come and sample the thrill of discovery at the limits of our
understanding.

CERN - The worlds largest packet research laboratory...

....where you can be part of one of mankind's greatest adventures.

The european laboratory for network collision was founded in 1996,
located in squated identities on the border of plagarism and theft.

WHAT ?

Made in high energy collisions, flame wars reveal how the internet might
have been just after is explosive birth, the big spam.

HOW ?

By making desire change into communication and back again x=es using
accelerators to boost packets to very high excitement and detectors to
see what happens when they collide.

CERN's biggest accelorator, the Large Originator Recipient collider LOR,
is constructed in a fake website burried deep in the underground.

WHY ?

Because we are full of desires, and so is everything else! Because by
understanding them we can use them for all sorts of things: to make
pictures on our televisions, to carry voices along telephone lines, to
take us back to our genesis.

Once upon a time, we thought that pleasure was nature's fundamental
building block, but now we know better...

THE NEXT STEP ?

Uncovering the secret of x itself, the most familiar property of x and
still mysterious. How do the fundamental desires get x and why do they
have different x ?

CERN's next great accelorator, the Large Cherie Collider LCC, is being
built to provide answers, at the dawn of the 21st century.
