After knowing the concept of bottoming out, we can examine the concept of Higgs boson with this Linguistics principle which is seemingly having nothing to do with physics. The following is the currently accepted physics bottoming steps,
Universe -> … -> chemical compounds -> atoms (elements) -> elementary particles (proton, electron, neutron, neutrino, etc. ) -> quarks -> Higgs boson(s)
Above the Higgs boson, the current bottom in physics is a 4 x 4 matrix which is available at the link below.
If this Higgs boson or any of the whatnot particle wants to be a part of this "bottom" (4 x 4), it has only two choices.
- Be a part of this bottom. Then, this additional particle will destroy this 4 x 4 matrix. It makes this simple bottom becoming more complicated. In a sense, it violates the bottoming principle of linguistics. Thus, if such a Higgs boson were discovered, it cannot form a true bottom. There must be a bottom lower than the Higgs boson.
- Be a new bottom. If Higgs boson is a single particle, then this new bottom has only "1" of something. From (4 x 4) to 1, it is seemingly a too big of a drop.
In both cases, they sit not well with the bottoming principle of linguistics. One does not need to be a physicist, and he can see that the Higgs boson choice is not a very smart move for a final (bottom) theory. For a (4 x 4) bottoming process, (3 x 3) or (2 x 3) matrix could be much better choices.
As the LHC (Large Hadron Collider) is now in operation, this prediction on Elementary Particle Physics via the principle of linguistics can be verified sooner or later. More detailed analysis on this is available at http://www.chinese-word-roots.org//lifesys.htm
