Higgs boson, a bad idea!

{Note (added on April 2, 2015, months before the LHC run II):

There should be a vacuum boson {as vacuum [d (blue), -d (-yellow)] quark pair} transformed into vacuum {u (yellow), -u (-blue)}, see .

This vacuum boson's mass should be:

{Vacuum energy (about 246 Gev) divided by 2} + {a push over energy (vacuum fluctuation, about 2.46 Gev)}
= 123 + 2.46 = 125.46 Gev.

The above calculation has only one parameter: the vacuum energy. As a vacuum boson, its key feature is having a zero (0) spin.

Three years after the discovery of this new 125.4 Gev boson, the Higgs mechanism is not verified (see article form Nigel Lockyer, Director of Fermi Lab. at ). That is, the Higgs mechanism is wrong, totally nonsense, and of course there is no Higgs boson; it is a Vacuum Boson.
End note.}

The concept of Higgs boson was reviewed by the entire physics community for the past 30 years, and tens billion dollars were spent on building the LHC (Large Hadron Collider) for the purpose of producing it. Then, how can it be wrong, let alone to be a bad idea?

Furthermore, there is a genuine need for a Higgs-like particle(s) for the known physics, as the Standard Model is not a complete theory, that is, with a big hole. The Standard Model needs something to plug that leaking hole which is caused by a fact of the “Spontaneous Symmetry Breaking” (SSB), breaking the matter and anti-matter symmetry. That is, there must be a cause for this SSB, and the Higgs boson was invented to fit the bill, as the cause of SSB.

Yet, the SSB can be caused by many different mechanisms. However, the validity of the Higgs particle(s) can be tested by a machine, like LHC. Thus, tens billion dollars were spent to build LHC. Now, the LHC is in operation, and a verdict on Higgs will be known very soon.

However, before that tens billion dollar answer is out, I would like to give a verdict on Higgs by using the principles of Linguistics Manifesto. In Linguistics Manifesto, all large complex systems arose in tier-structure with the tier-structure principle.

Tier-structure principle (TSP) --- the higher tier of a large complex system arises from a similarity transformation of its lower tier. That is, the higher tier is a self-reflection of its lower tier.

Corollary of TSP --- the members of the higher tier is the composite of from the members of its lower tier.

For examples:
i. Proton and neutron are composites of quarks.
ii. Atoms are composites of proton, neutron, electron, etc..
iii. Chemical compounds are composites of atoms.

With this TSP, the Standard Model is obviously having more than one hole (the SSB issue). While the proton and the neutron are composites, the electron and the neutrino are not composites of any known particles. Thus, according to TSP, the proton and the electron cannot be in the same tier. I will discuss this later.

Now, the question is whether the Higgs is in the same tier with quarks.
a. If the Higgs is in the same tier with the quarks, then Higgs must come into being the same time (not before) with quarks. Thus, the Higgs cannot act as a cause for the SSB.

b. If the Higgs is in a lower tier to the quarks, then quarks must be composites of Higgs. And, this is not the case in the description of Higgs in the Standard Model.

While we are all waiting for the tens billion dollar answer from LHC, I am giving out my verdict on Higgs here. It is a bad idea as,
1. the SSB issue can be addressed with a different mechanism, a lower tier of the quark, such as Prequark.

2. the quarks can be the composites of the prequarks.
