I recently read an article pertaining to the field of physics and the fairly recent discovery of the Higgs Boson. The boson is a spectacular particle that proved that the higgs field exists.
Scientists have been speculating that it existed for a while now and only after this discovery did they have the proof they needed. The higgs field is the thing that gives mass to everything in the universe. Yet the higgs boson is just an excitement of the higgs field. Even when there are no higgs bosons around, the higgs field is present everywhere. So then what is the word? Is it just a multitude of different fields overlapping one another or is it just one field with many iterations in it. I have no idea.
