Needless to say, I find the idea of a Higgs imbued with sentience enough to travel back in time and stop its own creation via LHC--in order to save this universe--stupifyingly awesome. Suddenly, we face a situation where the simulation becomes the real (Ender's Game, anyone?), where mankind's attempt to re-create an unstable primordial atmosphere to uncover the meaning of life (or, at least, of mass) can be manipulated, where the Higgs in the photograph starts to fade and the $9 billion spent on the LHC alone becomes an endeavor thwarted by a mischievous scalar elementary particle. Sean Carroll, though, employs his hefty intellect to put our minds at ease, saying that "the theory is undeniably crazy--but not crackpot, which is a distinction worth drawing." So, you're saying there's a chance?
An apt mantra (and not for the first time) when confronted with teasers like this--be in it in science, politics, medicine, love: "You remember this: they never tell you any more truth than they have to."
