My guess is that what you are talking about here is so far in the future that we will have learned a lot more before they even start laying bricks for it. So worry about it now is a waste of effort as far as I am concerned. LHC is here and now. Let us learn what we can from it. If it prove what you suggesting could be true then and only then we change our plans.

Exactly.
Yup, more or less what I said (or what I meant to say ;) )

Not worrying about it, but since he mentioned building accelerators with energy higher than cosmic rays, I wrote why I think it's a bad idea.

Nothing wrong with that at all :D
Anyone who doesn't take truth seriously in small matters cannot be trusted with large ones either by Albert Einstein.
