In Genesis 11, the people spoke the same language and the Lord said, they are united and speak the same language, now nothing they set out to do will be impossible. Today, Cern created the world wide web, uniting people under one language again. Cern created www as a way for scientists to communicate with each other. The people of Babel wanted to reach into the sky with their tower- or reach into the heaven. Cern also is attempting to reach into the heavens, a new dimension, in their words they are trying to “pierce the veil”. I wonder and I’m starting to believe that the people at the Tower of Babel were doing more than just building a really tall building like I’ve been taught in Sunday school.
I believe they may have been trying to enter the heavens or another dimension just like Cern is trying to do. According to what I’ve read about Cern, their discoveries can lead to a dangerous release of dark matter/antimatter which is dangerous and can create confusion and chaos if it is not controlled. At present, they cannot control or contain antimatter. Here we have our third similarity with Babel- the possibility of confusion and chaos released once this veil has been pierced – into the heavenliest just as there was confusion at the Tower of Babel. Also, the Tower of Babel was the tallest building made and now CERN has made the largest machine ever made.
