Higgs boson, a bad idea, part five

{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.}

In the past week (July 20 to July 28), there are two high energy physics conferences taking  place.

1. European Physical Society meeting on high energy physics (  ) in Grenoble, France.

2. The Particles and Nuclei International Conference (  ) at MIT in Cambridge, MA.

The objectives of these two experiments are searching for the Higgs boson and for evidence that there may be supersymmetric  partners.

With the current data, there is no hint of supersymmetry,  especially below 1 TeV.  And, it is ruling out a Higgs boson with mass anywhere from 150 GeV to 450 GeV by LHC data.
While the best predicted value for the Higgs boson mass is a good deal less than 80 GeV,  the LEP 2 experiments excluded a standard model Higgs boson with mass less than 114.4 GeV.  In fact, the Tevatron data also excluded any Higgs in the 157 to 183 GeV range. 

Now, the only place  for Higgs to hide is from 114 to 157 GeV range, and this can be easily covered by the Tevatron which is in operation over 20 years. In this energy range, there is no need for the giant machine LHC. Yet, at this critical juncture, the Tevatron is scheduled to close down in two months.

In his post, John Conway made another comment.
"The theme of the PANIC conference was ... , to see if there is an inside, to see if they  have substructure [in quark]. Naturally, to do the experiment we smash quarks together and see if we see any hint that  there is something smaller inside, which would manifest itself as an excess of particle jets coming out sideways to the beam, ...
But in the first graph here all we see is a smooth spectrum, agreeing exceedingly well with the predictions, extending out to huge energies…no bumps, no excess in the tails, and no excess of jets coming out sideways. In one fell swoop we’ve extended the limit on the size of quarks down by a factor of three or four. As far as we can tell, quarks are pointlike."

He is, in fact, pointing out that quark has no internal structure. His conclusion is the result of a preconceived premise --- the point particle has no internal structure. This preconceived notion is, of course, wrong. In my post ( The source of the “Spontaneous Symmetry Breaking”, part 3.    ), I have showed that every geometric point has a very complicated internal structure.

For the Standard Model, there is only one fact --- it is not complete, that is, with a big hole. The Higgs particle is intended to be the plug for plugging up that hole.

Standard Model roams in the space-time, not the base for generating the space-time. And, it  does not encompass the gravity. If the Higgs can, indeed, plug that hole, then it (SM) has  lost all connections to both the space-time and gravity. Thus, the Higgs (as it is currently defined) is a very bad idea. The hole of SM must be connected to both space-time and gravity (whatever they are).
