Visitors from the future?

This is among the most interesting articles I've seen this year.

Large Hadron Collider's being sabotaged from the future?

NYT article

I just thought it was so interesting the quote in the NYT article.

While it is a paradox to go back in time and kill your grandfather, physicists agree there is no paradox if you go back in time and save him from being hit by a bus.

Those physicists are very very smart. That's just so interesting and the possibilities it opens up. They are more than half professional philosophers it seems. At the very high levels of certain areas of physics and math I suspect there may be a lot of philosophy coming into play.
