    Is it possible to change the mass of a particle using what gave it's mass, the Higgs field. Don't forget that until proven wrong it is possible. I am asking is it possible to control the Higgs field? Imagine what you could do with this.

    Who knows. If it were possible to manipulate the Higgs field, maybe. Is it possible to manipulate the Higgs field? Who knows.

    Lawrenace Krauss has speculated, "if you were able to heat up some region to something like a billion, billion, billion degrees, then in that region, the Higgs field would probably go away. Of course, by the time you heated things up to a billion, billion, billion degrees, everything would be gone anyway"

    Don't forget that until proven wrong it is possible.
    What does that mean? If something is impossible, it is impossible. Could people fly by flapping their arms before someone did the math and showed it was impossible. On that day man-powered flight stopped.

    Perhaps you mean, until proven impossible it may or may not be possible?

    Thanks for your input. Now what could you do if you controlled the higgs field?
