Needed Discoveries

Waiting for God (At the ring of fire).

A chill wind blows across the plane.somewhere between Geneva and France A circle of scientist stand waiting. Beneath their feet runs a great circle 27 kilometers in diameter. there they wait, waiting for God.

One of the greatest discoveries of the 21 century is going to be the gathering of clinching evidence of the existence of the Higgs-boson vector particle, the so-called ‘God particle’. for this little beast is the holy grail of particle physics and will provide proof of the standard model.

The Higgs particle was theorized to exist in 1964 by Peter Higgs, Francois Englert and Robert Brout, based on concepts by Philip Aanderson. The Higgs particle was theorized to be the particle that gives vector bosons mass. So it is a mass particle or the particle that gives matter and other bits mass. This is interesting because you would think that if gravity is caused by the presence of mass in space then the Higgs particle could be indirectly responsible for gravity as well. The idea of the Higgs particle causing mass is that the particle forms a endless field in space (A Higgs Field) and that resistance to moving through the field is mass. Like trying to walk through water you encounter resistance. So basically inertia is the pressure from the Higgs field pressing against you as you try to move through it. I have also read a theory that the Higgs field maybe entangled and that because all of the higgs particles are entangled that they would all occupy the same energy level. If any other particle tries to enter the same energy level then that particle will be rejected by the Pauli exclusion principle. And it is this that causes the resistance to the field. Now lets suppose that matter has enough energy to partially disentangle the field. then you would end up with a gradient that would create a pressure difference, you would experience a force. could this force be gravity?

So you can see why the discovery of the Higgs Boson would be a major discovery in the particle physics world. Not only will it provide the answer to what is mass? but also point the way to a possible theory of quantum gravity.
