4.0 out of 5 stars Quixotic Quest for Particle Higgs, October 30, 2012
This review is from: Higgs: The Invention and Discovery of the 'God Particle' (Hardcover)
Higgs: The Invention and Discovery of the 'God Particle' lauds the hunt for the Higgs particle as the biggest, most expensive experiment ever. Author Jim Baggott argues that the effort is justified because it may validate our basic model for the building blocks of the universe: the Standard Model, which would be in tatters if there were no Higgs particle. Baggott's book and some others, sparked by intense media interest, help put into perspective the efforts and excitement of scientists of the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN)

Scientists at CERN may not have `discovered' the Higgs boson but simply a mix of phantom particles that mimic the energy signatures assumed for Higgs Bosons. These signatures along with predictions of the Standard Theory of particle physics prompted CERN scientists to claim discovery of the Higgs boson. Noted physicist Stephen Hawking made a $100 bet based on his claim that the Higgs boson is non-existent and fictional. Perhaps, at least, a new particle consistent with the Higgs boson was found.

The Standard Model postulates the existence of Higgs bosons, which give other elementary particles gravitational mass and inertia. To date CERN scientists can only claim they may have observed Higgs particles. The actually observed elementary bosons are photons, W and Z bosons and gluons. Photons comprise the electromagnetic field. W and Z bosons comprise the weak nuclear force and gluons comprise the strong nuclear force.

A recently-published book My Universe - A Transcendent Reality describes a Cubic-Rubik model alternative to Standard Theory model for the Higgs Boson as the source of gravitational mass. The Cubic-Rubik model for mass accumulation surpasses the Standard Theory model for `heavy' electrons. The Standard Theory model predicts only three generations of electrons. The Cubic-Rubik model predicts five generations - beyond the 0.511 Mev (zeroth-generation) electron - while also predicting the already-observed Muon and Tauon.

The Cubic-Rubik model incorporates a Higgs Boson idea that differs profoundly from that for which the CERN facility was built to discover - at the considerable expense of tens of billions of dollars. This leads to the question: Is such extravagance really necessary? Incremental (Higgsian) masses of heavy electrons can be inferred, observed, and analyzed - for example, with cosmic ray muons, muonic atoms, and heavy electron solids - in physics laboratory environments - and explained with the Cubic-Rubik model.
