The Roman Philosopher Lucius Anneaus Seneca (4 BCE-65 CE) was perhaps the first to note the universal trend that growth is slow but ruin is rapid. I call this tendency the "Seneca Effect."

The Neutrino Tunnel Under the Alps Will be Finally Built, Declares Italian Minister Mariastella Gelmini.

Ms. Mariastella Gelmini, currently Minister of Regional Affairs and Autonomies of the Italian Government, has announced today that the Neutrino Tunnel from the CERN in Switzerland and the Gran Sasso National Laboratory, Italy, has been approved by the Italian Government as part of the actions financed by the European Recovery Funds.

Ms. Mariastella Gelmini is on record for having mentioned the tunnel in a 2011 press release, when she was minister of Public Education and Scientific Research. She was heavily criticized for that, since no such tunnel existed at that time. But now, 10 years later, it appears clear that Gelmini's statement was prophetic.

The construction is expected to start before the end of 2021. It will involve a considerable financial effort since the distance between the two laboratiories is about 750 km. But the challenge, declared Ms. Gelmini, is worth the effort since it opens the way to attain speeds higher than light. These speeds, she added, could be especially useful for the members of the current Italian government were to need to leave Rome in a hurry.

Mr. Mario Draghi, prime minister of the Italian government, praised Ms. Gelmini statement and hinted that the new tunnel may be named in her honor when it will be completed. He added that superluminal speed may be a welcome feature for monetary transfers all over the world.

Mr. Roberto Speranza, Italian ministry of health, also praised the construction of the new tunnel, but declared that the superluminal neutrinos arriving in Italy will have to be quarantined for a certain period as they could be carriers of viral infections.

    Ms Gelmini's accelerated Neutrinos and the Neutrino Tunnel will both be a product of fossil fuels Energy coming from the past...

    Gelmini's prophecy is a demonstration that the energy-dense fossil fuels coming from deep in the past, put in the hands of primitive humans, kill the Future, rendering it a history before the random Future even born.

    The natural Future on earth has died - since the fossil fuels age.

    Will it resume natural in less than 300 years?

    1. Strange that you mention Carlo Cipolla's laws! We (myself and Ilaria Perissi) just published an article on the "laws of human stupidity" at Soon to be discussed on this blog!

  5. The stupidity theme continued:

    Some scientists claim that hydrogen, because it is so plentiful, is the basic building block of the universe. I dispute that. I say there is more stupidity than hydrogen, and that is the basic building block of the universe.

    There is more stupidity than hydrogen in the universe, and it has a longer shelf life.

  6. Why they did'not learn nothing about Rome?
    It is so desperating, and sometimes I wish to go back to Stone Age! Curiousely, scientists are already raising up the Dinosaurs which we will meet than in our way back. Accident or foresight? Or simple circuit? If we would understand the simple principle of "Tetris", we would never have this problems. But greed defeats mind!
