Over the weekend I was fortunate enough to purchase a magnetic monopole from ebay. Darker than blackness, it is now hovering, menacingly, in the corner of my living room. I have also just taken delivery of a table-top particle accelerator from dabs.com. Developed by French physicists at the Institute of Technology in Palaiseau, www.newscientisttech.com/channel/tech/dn10741-tabletop-particle-accelerator-created.html, this will enable me to bombard my magnetic monopole with energetic electrons. According to the theoretical model published last year by Nobuyuki Sakai et al, bombarding a magnetic monopole in a particle accelerator should induce the monopole to undergo inflationary expansion, creating a child universe inside the horizon of the small Reissner-Nordstrom black-hole space-time which contains the monopole. Crucially, the child universe will be created without the need for an initial singularity 'in the laboratory'. (See www.ex-christian.net/index.php?showtopic=10297 for the New Scientist article 'Create your own universe', and www.arxiv.org/PS_cache/gr-qc/pdf/0602/0602084.pdf for the academic paper).
So, over the next week, I shall be designing my universe, and fine-tuning my particle accelerator for the creation event. It will probably take me, oh, seven days before I'm ready for the grand event. I want to get my design right, because once the child universe has been created, it will disconnect from our own parent universe, the small black-hole in our universe will evaporate, and I will no longer be able to interact with my design. This is one project, therefore, which will definitely not be a triumph of development over design.
I shall let you know how my design is proceeding, and, of course, I may incorporate suggestions from others, if anyone would like to proffer some.
