Love this article:

Could the Large Hadron Collider be held back by its own future?

Originally proposed by physicist John Wheeler, this "Flexi-laws" concept argues that physical laws are not immutable and may actually have been evolving ever since the big bang. Couple that with our old quantum mechanical friend, the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle and you get Stephen Hawking’s quantum cosmology, which asserts that the past (and therefore the evolution of our physical laws) is influenced by the present state of the universe. Wheeler suggests that “the existence of life and observers in the universe today can help bring about the very circumstances needed for life to emerge by reaching back to the past through acts of quantum observation.”

Are you just trying to take credit for another 2009 prediction coming true?

Haha! Good one. I must admit, in retrospect, those predictions were eerie. Think

As if more evidence is needed, along comes a bird and drops a bread crumb into the LHC, which promptly overheats:
