the Guardian: "Fake human sacrifice filmed at Cern"
"Prank" "occult" ritual at CERN. As Tim Binnall commented on Facebook when he posted this: "Holy fuck, this smells like Jack Parsons type shit." It surely does.
A "permanent" statue of the Hindu deity Shiva sits outside at the facility. Shiva is the god of destruction, but that's simplistic. He is also the destroyer of ego. A bringer of change. Positive and "negative" aspects of things destroyed. (Think of the Death card in the tarot.)
As a spokesperson for CERN said:
“Cern does not condone this type of spoof, which can give rise to misunderstandings about the scientific nature of our work.”
The “investigation” under way was an “internal matter”, she said. [Fake human sacrifice filmed at Cern, with pranking scientists suspected | Science | The Guardian]
