The progress of science is to be welcomed, for the more ambitious its objects become, the more like theology it becomes. The #LHC is already almost mystically powerful in its potential. Growth in knowledge requires a growth on energy to reverse the entropy of singular discoveries. It follows that the ultimate scientific test would require an infinite amount of energy for an an infinite duration of time. In other words, science will be complete when it is divine.
Yet at such ‘energy levels‘ no human can persist. As such, scientific completion is a Pyhrric victory for humanism: science can only be perfected under conditions that render humanity not only operationally bothersome but also theoretically irrelevant . Strings, for example, are intrinsically unobservable, by photonic observers, at any rate. This shows that the victory of a theory like strung theory requires the absence of human parameters.
In the same vein, the Heisenberg uncertainty principle, the observer effect, Planck’s constant, practical objections to Gödelian time travel, the foreclosure of superluminal transmission of humanly intelligible information, Labouring black box conundrums, etc., are all indicators of the anti-anthropic character of ultimate science.
