Higgs Boson, a bad idea, part eight


{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 http://www.prequark.org/pq11.htm .


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 http://www.quantumdiaries.org/2014/04/24/massive-thoughts/ ). That is, the Higgs mechanism is wrong, totally nonsense, and of course there is no Higgs boson; it is a Vacuum Boson.
End note.}




With the recent data from LHC, the Higgs game is de facto over although some final verifications on a bump around the 120 Gev are still pending. And, down into the tube, it also goes the supersymmetry fantasy.  Now, the only viable theory is the Prequark Chromodynamics (PC), as the M-theory is only a subset of the PC.

While Higgs was not officially ruled out by Prequark Chromodynamics, there are, at least, four big reasons for Higgs being a very bad idea.
1. Higgs is not needed in Prequark Chromodynamics.

2. Higgs (if being a rock bottom particle) violates the bottoming out principle, explained in the book “Linguistics Manifesto” (ISBN 978-3-8383-9722-1), available at Amazon or Barnes & Noble.

3. Higgs is useless to link Standard Model to other realities, the Life sphere (pop), the Mathematics Universe (pop), etc..

4. This physical universe sits on three pillars, 1) the Cabibbo angle (θc) ~ 13.5 degrees, 2) the Weinberg angle (θW ) ~ 28.74 degrees and 3) the Alpha ["electron fine structure constant" (Beta = 1/alpha = 137.0359 … )]. Higgs can do nothing to derive them while they can be easily derived in Prequark Chromodynamics (see the post http://prebabel.blogspot.com/2011/05/higgs-boson-bad-idea-part-four.html  ).

As the Prequark Chromodynamics did not become a mainstream theory, I should give a brief outline on its history here. The first paper on PC was written on December 4, 1979. Then, a book “Super Unified Theory --- the Foundations of Science” was copyrighted on April 18, 1984 (TX  1-323-231). Many reviews about the Prequark Chromodynamics were listed in that book. I will list some key reviews below.


a. Jon Machta (in March 2004) invited me to join the faculty at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst.

b. Jainendra K. Jain (in February, 2004) invited me to join the faculty at PennState.

c. Steven Weinberg (in 1996) --- the outlook for Prequark is not good.

d. Alan Harvey Guth (in 1994) --- it [prequark] is very interesting.

e. John Archibald Wheeler (in 1994) --- it [prequark] has no test point.

f. Sidney D. Drell (in 1983) --- invited me doing research work at SLAC.

g. The Physical Review (D. Nordstrom, in October 1983) --- We have made no judgment on whether your work is correct or not, only that the subject matter is not suitable for the Physical Review.

Up to this point, the Prequark Chromodynamics is, in fact, just a one-man show.  You all missed this great boat for the past thirty years. Now, I would like to invite you all to join in.

Higgs Boson, a bad idea, part seven

When the epistemology of physics depends on a gadget (such as Tevatron or LHC), it is a gadget physics. When the epistemology of physics depends on its contacting to realities (such as the issues of rising of life, of intelligence, of mathematics, etc.), it is the reality physics. Thus, the controlling principle for the reality physics is the common sense.

There are two good things about common sense; 1) it can be understood by everyone, including physicists, 2) it can easily discuss the BIG picture in addition to the nitty-gritty.

At this moment of great discovery at LHC and Tevatron, I would like to offer some common sense to paint a big picture.

The works of web page and websites are now common sense knowledge. Every web site has a home page, and it could have some internal pages, often hyperlinked from the home page. Sometimes, those internal pages come out as Popup Windows, and I would like to call them as pops.

Our universe can be viewed as a website. The Big Bang is the home page, the Grand Daddy Pop (the GD pop). Under this GD pop, there are a few other pops, the Life pop (life sphere), the Intelligence pop, the Linguistics pop, the Mathematics pop, etc..

Every pop (page) has, at least, two types of context; 1) some texts, 2) some hyperlinks to the other pops. For some internal pops, they can be the end of links without any outgoing links. However, for the GD pop (being the Grand Daddy, the home page), it must have outgoing links to reach all internal pops. In fact, it is those outgoing links defining the GD pop.

There is no need to prove that the Big Bang is the GD pop. If anyone disagree with this, then so be it. As a GD pop, it must have links to all other pops. That is, the vitality of a GD pop “theory” can be easily checked with the following checklist.
a. Does it link to (give rise to) the Life pop?
b. Does it link to (give rise to) the Intelligence pop?
c. etc..

This Big pop picture was ignored for long time as our physics theories were too primitive, purely as a gadget physics which ignores all the common sense realities. Now, we are reaching the gate of a final theory,  and these pop links must become the final checklist. Physics can no longer hide in an isolated page without dealing the issue of contacting the realities. 

Does Higgs encompass all those pop links? Even with a real Higgs boson, it does not provide a link to realities, the rising of life, of intelligence and of Mathematics. The Higgs boson is simply a bad idea even if there were a real Higgs.

Higgs Boson, a bad idea, part six

There are a few things certain about the Standard Model (SM).

Certainty 1: SM is not complete, that is, with a big hole. There are two ways to deal with any hole, plugging it up or going into it. By plugging it up, it becomes complete. By going  into it, we will find a new universe.
So, what is this Higgs, a plug or a tunnel?

Certainty 2: SM roams in the space-time, not a base for generating space-time. So, if SM becomes a complete sheet (without any hole) by finding a Higgs, it still does not encompass the space-time. Thus, finding a Higgs plug will not make SM a better physics  theory. If this Higgs plug cannot plug the entire hole (SM still incomplete with a real Higgs), then this Higgs is not truly important for a vital theory.

Can Higgs be a tunnel? If  it is, then it should have an internal structure.

There are two types of internal structure, with sub-particles or with pre-particles. The  sub-particle is, in general, smaller than the particle. On the other hand, the pre-particle  can be infinitely larger than the particle. For example, a visible iceberg is composed of  three pre-particles, 1) a big chunk of ice with 10 times of its size, 2) a big body of  water, 3) a big space encompassing the two above. Each of these pre-particles is bigger than the visible iceberg, and some can be infinitely bigger.

If quark is only a protrusion of the space-time sheet, then there is a lower tier under SM.  That is, the hole of SM is actually linked to its lower tier, the space-time. In this way,  SM becomes a major part of the whole as its hole is not a weakness but is the key link to completeness.

 
With the above points, whether there is a real Higgs or not at this point is no longer important. Higgs cannot and does not play an important part in a final theory. Although there were zillions reasons for needing a Higgs in the history,  for breaking the electroweak gauge symmetry, for providing mass to quarks and leptons through their Yukawa couplings, etc., all those needs are now pointing to a new physics which can satisfy those needs without a Higgs, especially if there is no Higgs (almost a reality now). Prequark Chromodynamics (http://www.prequark.org/ ) is just such a new physics.
