Book Description

HIGGS – THE UNIVERSE'S SUPER-GLUE
4th Edition
With an integrated Higgs gravity mechanism
[not as proposed by Professor Peter Higgs]
Plus proposed explanations for the photon energy/frequency relationship;
for wave/particle duality; and for the Quantised nature of the universe.


DESCRIPTION

Higgs – The Universe's super-glue is strongly implied by recent experiments, but are scientists on the right track regarding the fundamental concepts of the Higgs field?

In these early years of the 21st century it is not difficult to arrive at the conclusion that 'real' scientists, that is those exclusively utilising 'pure' mathematics to describe phenomenon at the current boundaries of theoretical physics, are convinced that no significant breakthrough in their field can be made by an 'untrained' person. It has been said that the examination of scientific concepts using mere philosophic tools has been left behind by the mathematical constructs of quantum physics and that the old-fashioned simple approach using ideas capable of visualisation and verbal description is of no further value.

While Einstein could be thought of as out-of-date by some, I would remind readers that he looked favourably upon visualisable results. The poor fellow has been told in no uncertain terms [since his demise] that it is no longer possible for any new knowledge of significance to be arrived at by a clerk sitting in a patents office in Bern [despite his qualifications in physics]. I have a gnawing suspicion however, that, should the same intellect exist in a similar position today it would likely take the knife to current 'theories' in the form of Occam's razor.

Scientists eminent in various aspects of cosmology and the quantum world have lamented that we appear to be at a bit of a dead-end in our search for 'how it all works' and some have suggested that 'what we know' may need to be replaced by a somewhat different model of reality. Unfortunately, it is fairly difficult for a person trained in the current understanding of things to set this knowledge aside and to then conceive other viable possibilities. Quite contrary to popular belief, breakthroughs of the nature required may be more likely for a scientific 'fringe-dweller' simply because there is no detailed knowledge to get in the way.

But who is capable of recognising and falsifying any potential breakthroughs other than those already indoctrinated into the current meme?

Be warned, this article presents a somewhat challenging and different model of reality from that presented elsewhere. The argument is presented in an easy to read format and will provide the clear thinker with a convincing set of ideas that could set the world of particle physics afire with debate.

1.0 out of 5 stars Higgs speculation 25 Sept. 2012

This book appears to contain purely imaginative speculation about the Higgs field and and origin of mass.
I doubt that any of it has been peer reviewed by the professional Physics community.

4.0 out of 5 stars is this the way things are? 5 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase
As an artist what did I get out of this? The answer is more than I thought I would.

Language is the problem: familiar words (such as 'time') are redefined: this redefinition was more difficult for me than the use of new words. I don't recommend this publication for readers who are not seriously scientifically curious.

This paper is an hypothesis and Filoroux asks for comments on its viability. I am not able to contribute here, but that does not mean I have no thoughts on the matters raised.

I accept that gravity is integral to the Big Bang: any new objects in space are a rearrangement of what is out there. If the Higgs bosons are energy fields that interact with electromagnetic energy to form matter, and hence gravity, OK. This makes more sense to me than the idea of gravitons.

I quite like the idea that our perception of time may be limited in a way not dissimilar to our limited view of electro-magnetic frequencies, as light; but this is conjecture. The analogy to film or video frames is fair enough: one frame per minute gives a much less viable view of motion than, say, twentyfour frames per second. 'Time' for us could be seen as seen as 'ticks' or frames. But I am not at all sure of this. Just as viable is the much simpler idea that time is evidence that two events are not coincidental.

Filoroux says that each Higgs node is linked to EVERY other Higgs node in the universe by Higgs 'tendrils', but I don't see why the the concept of tendrils is necessary, nor can I see any evidence for this idea.

Filoroux asks if it is possible that the workings of the universe are as relatively uncomplicated as this paper? An answer could be 'yes' because nature (in spite of its variety) takes simple, economic routes where possible.

Totally incomprhensible it is almost certain that the author himself doesn't understand what he means most of the time. He also doesn't know when to stop!

1.0 out of 5 stars Amateur speculation. 11 Jun. 2014
Speculative, badly argued and poorly written. Better to read something by a scientist. I can not recommend this single at all.

4.0 out of 5 stars Food for thought 16 April 2014
Verified Purchase
As a layman, I find it difficult to explain my own understanding (my guess) at how it all works. This book, though I found some of it a bit fast to follow, is as close to my imagining of the universe as anything I have read to date. I have neither the mathematical skills nor the wider detailed understanding of what it all is, but it is good to read someone else's better educated description that broadly fits my own. I will try to better understand from this explanation, any further reading on the subject i have the good fortune to come across. I will certainly seek out any further publications by the author.

2.0 out of 5 stars A hypothesis come unglued? 17 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase
Readable, some interesting background on Higgs, some theories presented of varying robustness and putting forward hypothesis is the stuff of science and you cant fault the spirit but you can fault the main theory of Higgs nodes which for me does not stick together anything like well enough to make for a well bonded hypothesis let alone a Universe. Lets hope the Universe is made of sterner stuff, and probably not this stuff, when the many hypotheses finally become empirically certain.
