Considerations of the Planck False Vacuum and the Higgs Field
Can we now say there is a "God field" along with a "God particle?"
Given what has already been stated concerning vector mass with direction and scale (modulus and scalar) we can now look at the same questions in the context of the Higgs field and the involvement of the Higgs boson to generate mass in the first place. It is thought and now substantiated in experiment that the Higgs boson and associated field gives rise to mass, the fundamental quality that we identify as matter upon which our material life is based. The Higgs field is our link to the invisible quantum vacuum and the visible manifestation of our cosmos and everyday material experience. Dialectically, we can call our existence the synthesis of the Higgs field and sub-atomic particles that would have no mass or material existence except for the interactions of the two. The Higgs field operates at a fantastic level of energy, beyond what the average mind can grasp. The Higgs field consists of many different kinds of bosons of which one has been identified. This is why it took the LRC to tease out one of the Higgs bosons. The LRC is the largest and most powerful machine ever built that most of us are familiar with. Peter Higgs proposed its existence in 1964 and on July 4th, 2012, it was announced that certainty was very high that the boson had been found. It remains to repeat the experiment and to do variations. In turn we will be looking at how the Higgs boson and field interacts with other sub-atomic particles to;
Random mass for inertial objects
Directed mass for momentum, modulus and scalar forces
How virtual manifestation in the Planck false vacuum interacts with stabilized particles
Matter energy interactions
Resonance as key to electromagnetic fields and the atomic realm
Higgs bosons, gravity and accelerating expansion
Higgs bosons, dark mass and energy
The Higgs field, first described about 50 years ago in mathematical physics was just a mental construct to answer puzzling questions of quantum properties, has now been confirmed in experiments performed by colliding near light velocity hadrons in the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in Switzerland. The results indicate that there are such things as Higgs bosons that have been called the “God particle” because it is these particles that give mass to everything else. These in combination over the extent of the cosmos are collectively called the Higgs field. Without the Higgs field and its constituent particles, we would not have the cosmos that we have with what we call material existence.
The Higgs field is constantly active in the background of the cosmos, remaining largely invisible, but the results of its interactions with everything else at the sub-atomic level allows mass to form with the visible cosmos that would otherwise be a sea of massless energy dispersing at the velocity of light in all directions since the big bang. Matter as we know it is a form of energy, but the kind that exists in a sub light velocity form and has mass giving it qualities of modulus, scale and all other properties that we have come to understand. The Higgs field manifests like all else out of the Planck Quantum False Vacuum and it is this constant manifestation that serves as a kind of reference field for everything else. It interacts with all other particles in the cosmos to generate mass in a discreet quantum manner. It is also the source of quantum gravity and acceleration.
For the most part, mass has become concentrated into structures like galactic clusters, the web of galactic sheets (the foam like structure of the large scale cosmos), individual galaxies, stars, planets and all the other stuff we see. A lot of this mass expresses itself in two primal qualities of inertia and momentum. Otherwise, the mass, especially in the smaller structures where gravity is not locally dominant, is random in modulus and scale, following the energy interactions of the larger structures around them such as stellar systems and galaxies. Most of the mass is tied up in dust and small bodies that are in a state of stability close to absolute zero. The Higgs field operates in these to generate the random mass that has no self specific direction and scale, but has these in relation to the surrounding cosmos. If a lump of this mass is spinning relative to the surrounding, then modulus and scale develop in the lump to generate directional mass. We see this in the gyroscope experiments.
The Search for the Higgs Boson in a Three Part Series
Relative spinning masses working alone or in concert through gravitational or electromagnetic connection have a “self contained” mass that expresses itself in a spinning vector. The Higgs field interacting from the quantum level gives this spinning matter not only the modulus and scale, but directional inertia and momentum as well to give us the evolved shape of galaxies, planets and stars. Matter moves through the random Higgs field to generate the force that we call mass and it is mass that defines the material world, though matter itself is a construct around mostly empty space awash in electromagnetic energy and what some term vibration. It is this material transformation that gives us the extent of all material manifestation in the cosmos including life as we know and don't know it.
Virtual particle pairs are constantly manifesting and disappearing continually throughout the cosmos. Sometimes they interact with the stable particles in the existing cosmos of matter and energy. The Higgs field operates in this context. In many cases, such as the electron-photon interaction, the electron non-collapsed wave function changes energy levels without moving from one point to the other. The electron wave function goes through a transformation mediated by virtual particles which allows for the collapse of the wave function and for absorption of emission of photons in the process. The same kind of thing happens in hadrons in the nucleus when other energy transformations occur during fusion and fission and other related radiological processes like spontaneous decay.
Matter-energy interactions and transformations are a constant in the visible cosmos and in the invisible part as well. While the Higgs field imparts mass to sub-atomic and atomic particles, massless particles are able to get through the field without being impeded. These massless particles are those such as photons and neutrinos can pass through the Higgs field at light velocity and only become “slowed down” when interacting with mass in sub-atomic particles via the photoelectric effect in an instantaneous transformation in the collapse of a wave function. This is a two way process and the Higgs field is also likely behind the spontaneous release of energy from matter when the wave function collapses in the opposite phase.
Most electromagnetic radiation is far larger than atomic scales, so many people wonder how the large scale vibrations interact with the tiny particles of the sub-atomic region of matter. This is accomplished through resonance. All photoelectric effects are based on discrete resonance, which is why large scale wavelengths can be absorbed and emitted by electron fields and atomic nuclei. A vast amount of information exists on the nature of atomic structure based on observations of these interactions. Our understanding of stars and matter are based on this and the emerged science of Fraunhoffer emission-absorption spectra, which allows us to analyze matter via the discreet photoelectric effect.
The Planck quantum false vacuum is the source of quantum gravity and also the culprit behind large scale cosmic acceleration. Much of this is mediated via the Higgs field that is linked to the quantum false vacuum. Quantum gravity as stated elsewhere is the result of atomic particles being forced together by either electrostatic means or by the direct interaction with the false vacuum that constantly seethes with the production and destruction of particle pairs. This is observed in very small systems at critical distances via the Casimir effect. The Higgs field appears to be involved here as well, by way of imparting mass and its counterpart, gravity. Beyond the critical distance, atomic particles are forced apart in a small scale expansion. On the vast scale of widely separated groups of galaxies, cosmic acceleration is driven by the same forces the drive atoms and matter together in smaller and closer proximity. This is the reason why we have a lumpy cosmos with stars and planets with mass.
It is thought that most of the cosmos is comprised of dark matter and dark energy that we can only detect by its action on what we can see. In the material cosmos, we see the luminous matter and it is now thought that the luminous mass is only a small part of all the matter that is there which makes up planets, asteroids, rubble and dust. After all of this is accounted for, is the far greater part of the dark matter and energy that contains the Higgs field. The Higgs field gives mass to particles and this mass is what generates of physical material existence with all its cosmic laws and manifestations. The hidden part that shapes the visible part is several times greater than the sum of matter and energy in the visible cosmos.
Now that we have hold of the Higgs boson, what does this mean for the future? Will it be somehow tapped to produce fantastic space drives of the future that will allow us to ply interstellar space and the galaxy in total? We are still a far cry from that as it took enormous energy and resources to tease out a single Higgs boson. Will we some day be able to manufacture whole planets out of the void by manipulating the Higgs field? Right now that is an impossible dream, but a dream nonetheless. In the days to come, the experiment will be repeated to check the varacity of the claims made from the physicists and engineers at the LHC. Other experiments will be devised to tease out other varieties of Higgs bosons and how these selectively act on particles producing arcane effects that we as yet only speculate. The Higgs field is behind material manifestation and it is little wonder that it has been dubbed the “God particle”. We might say that the entire cosmos is sustained continually by the “God field” It is this field that is also the foundation of time non-invariance and the arrow of time we are familiar with in our non quantum experience. All of it is mediated by the Higgs field or the “God field” continually, so the creation is an ongoing manifestation following the principles of cosmic laws of dialectics in all of its expression in a material cosmos.
