A few years ago CERN announced the epochal discovery of the Higgs boson, called also “God particle”. First, let us see what they “discover”. They discover that extremely rarely by proton collisions (once in a million of collisions) a particular flux of energy is released which has been given the name “Higgs boson”. Millions of collisions need to happen that here and there a Higgs boson is released. Higgs boson has an extremely short lifetime. This discovery is real and nothing can be objected so far.
I do not see anything epochal in this discovery. Higgs boson is not more than the momentary flux, a sparkle of relativistic proton energy, which is extremely rarely released in proton collisions. Immediately after being born, he turns back into the vacuum, he is dead just a fraction after its birth. Higgs boson is manmade artificial particle and does not have the existence on its own in the physical universe.
The idea that Higgs boson is proving the existence of the Higgs field which is giving mass to the particles has no stable basis. Discovery of the Higgs field proves only what was observed and nothing more. All the rest is pure speculation with no proof.
Recently I publish an article in Scientific Reports — Nature where I show that Higgs potential can be elegantly described with the variable density of the vacuum https://www.nature.com/articles/s41598-019-48018-2.
In this model energy of the given physical object is equal to the diminished energy density of the vacuum. A given physical object with the mass m is diminishing energy density of the vacuum exactly for the amount of its energy E:
E = mc2 = (Pemax — Pemin) x V.
Pemax is the energy density of the vacuum in interstellar space, Pemin is the energy density of the vacuum in the surface of a given physical object, V is the volume of the object.
Inertia and gravity have both origins in the diminished energy density of the vacuum. Hypothetical graviton does not exist and investing money in its searching is pointless.
Higgs mechanism is not a falsifiable model, it is pseudoscience
Karl Popper said: “A theory should be considered scientific if, and only if, it is falsifiable”. A scientific statement is one that could possibly be proven wrong. Such a statement is said to be falsifiable. The falsifiable statement always remains tentative and open to the possibility that it is wrong.
In the Physics Hypertext Book https://physics.info/standard/ we can read following regarding the Higgs mechanism: “All of space is assumed to be filled with a Higgs field — a background sea of virtual Higgs bosons that pop in and out of existence. The quarks, leptons, and W and Z bosons moving around through space interact with this field, which is why these particles have mass. The photons and gluons do not interact with the Higgs field, which is why these particles do not have mass. Even the Higgs boson itself interacts with the Higgs field. It gives itself mass!”.
All of space is assumed to be filled with a Higgs field — a background sea of virtual Higgs bosons that pop in and out of existence. This statement is not falsifiable and cannot be considered scientific.
The quarks, leptons, and W and Z bosons moving around through space interact with this field, which is why these particles have mass. This statement is not falsifiable and cannot be considered scientific.
The photons and gluons do not interact with the Higgs field, which is why these particles do not have mass. This statement is not falsifiable and cannot be considered scientific.
Even the Higgs boson itself interacts with the Higgs field. It gives itself mass! This statement is not falsifiable and cannot be considered scientific.
The mainstream science has in a kind of religious belief that »discovery« of Higgs boson is a scientific confirmation for the existence of the hypothetical Higgs field. If you pose any sensible question regarding the existence of Higgs field, you are out of the game, you are dissident, you are a disbeliever. It is incredible how the scientific mind which has no awakened observer as a supervisor, can go astray and build pseudoscience. Higgs mechanism is pseudoscience.
Higgs mechanism is against “mass-energy equivalence principle” http://www.sciencepublishinggroup.com/journal/paperinfo?journalid=122&paperId=10024484
Nothing in this model works. It will not survive the next 5 years.
