Death of the Higgs

SADLY:- The HIGGS does not confer mass, says CERN; at least not much mass “approximately a fingernail of mass compared to the whole human body”

Where now is the Higgs Boson? I was tracking back my own amateur theories of physics and found this item I wrote in 2004, nearly nine-years ago. The search for the relatively unsung Higgs was already in full swing – and CERN assures us they found it in 2012. But what now? Where has it gone? Why the long silence?

News update – 3 September 04.

The search for the Higgs Boson – an alleged massive particle which would account for Dark Matter and Energy (96% of  the universe) – continues as does the search for anti-neutrinos. An anti-neutrino is NOT the antiparticle of a neutrino in the way that positrons are the anti-matter antiparticles of electrons – electrons reversed as it were. An antineutrino, if any exist, would be a sort of shadow neutrino, which has already been defined, at only 0.44 electron volts, as a “ghostly particle” so an antineutrino would be the ghost of a ghost. Scientists from the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear Physics in Heidelberg, Germany have a laboratory deep below an Italian mountain range at Gran Sasso where the decay of enriched Germanium 76, shielded from all known sources of radiation, to Selenium 76 is observed. They claim to have seen 29 events in 10 years which they claim makes it 99.997% certain that these are real events, which as the decay process occurs do produce a neutrino and an antineutrino. Steven Elliot at the University of Washington State, Seattle, disputes the findings as does Ron Brodzinski at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory in Richland, Washington and as do the Russian physicists who supplied the enriched germanium from the Kurchatov Institute. The import of finding antineutrinos is that it would help explain how the universe evolved from the Big-Bang to contain matter not anti-matter or a neutral balance of pure light without any matter. Dave Wark of the University of Sussex, UK says “We now know that we must look beyond the standard model to explain dark matter. (New Scientist 4 Sept. 04.) – Back to this EIG theory perhaps?
