Doublethink... 1984 has happened

"To me, it's interesting that particle physics is hoping for a problem. We spent the last several decades showing that the Standard Model is accurate as far as we can tell. Most recently we looked for the Higgs, and we found the Higgs. We know the Standard Model is not complete, but because we've confirmed it so well, we don't know where it's broken. So the question now is, what do we look for? As the LHC gears back up, I think everyone is hoping to see something that we don’t expect. Because if we see something that we don't expect, that would be a problem, and that would be fun. "

This is coming from one of the bright minds of the Perimeter Institute.

So the standard model is accurate, but not complete, its confirmed, but they do not know where its broken, they are hoping to see what they don't expect and would be a problem... and would be fun.

Am I crazy or is this the epitome of doublethink?

The cognitive dissonance has been trashed. You know, a normal person who usually doesn't hold mutually contradictory beliefs/ideas... well, that gets erased at this "Perimeter Institute".

Any reasonable person would avoid this group. I didn't even know it existed until now. I've also found out they believe in General Relativity. Scary. Its like some strange capitalistic cult scientism group.
