a: particle accelerator ~
b: looking at the wrong end of microscope


"Thus, particles colliders do not reveal fundamental reality, but an emergent reality. In other words, trying to discover fundamental reality using particle accelerator is like looking at the wrong end of microscope to reveal the microcosm or at the wrong end of a telescope to observe the macrocosm. That is not to say that such instruments as the LHC are useless. On the contrary, such instruments are essential to our understanding of reality. It's only that what they show us is not fundamental reality, but processes that came into existence at states that followed the initial isotropic state of the Universe. "
