    Simple question. How does the Higgs boson give itself mass?

    Usually the dimensions of the higgsboson does not cause spacetime curvation, but when they interact with any sort of energyfluctuations they get extra dimensions through un-counterable fusion, and given the bosons little size, they fly away very quickly and undetecteable in the process.

    I hope this explanation was enough to satisfy your mind so eager of some explanation.

    In the mathematics of quantum mechanics describing creation and annihilation of elementary particles, as observed at accelerators, particles at particular points arise from "fields" spread over space and time. Higgs found that parameters in the equations for the field associated with the particle H can be chosen in such a way that the lowest energy state of that field (empty space) is one with the field not zero. It is surprising that the field is not zero in empty space, but the result, not an obvious one, is: all particles that can interact with H gain mass from the interaction.

    Thus mathematics links the existence of H to a contribution to the mass of all particles with which H interacts. A picture that corresponds to the mathematics is of the lowest energy state, "empty" space, having a crown of H particles with no energy of their own. Other particles get their masses by interacting with this collection of zero-energy H particles. The mass (or inertia or resistance to change in motion) of a particle comes from its being "grabbed at" by Higgs particles when we try and move it.

    The error with science today, in my oppinion; Is that it doesn't unite longer then 2-3 sentences.

    The stuff just doesn't fit together.

    Is it possible that these particles are relatively undetecable because they exist constantly in another time paradigm we have failed to equate into our equations of space-time?

    No, because they have to little mass to interact with matter.

    If you are refering to its relation to the planck particle, i never understood the proof of how to derive them and I don't think I've ever really seen it.

    they don't need to have mass in other time dimensions...........they could be the theoretical point-nuts-and-bolts.

    Time is the dimensions of an object, all dimensions are equal and identical -If there is a particle there we can see it as we see all objects in existence, but very small particles, like neutrinoes are practically invisible, imagine how small a 5D particle would be then.

    If partless parts have time, then partless parts is time.
    If partless parts have joy, then partless parts is joy.

    That may well be time in the current listing of scientific axioms.

    I am just saying.....
