about

A song about the Higgs Field and theories on how mass came into being

lyrics

The Big Bang theory says things all started / with one big blast
Still, physicists have many queries / in particular they asked
From 14 billions years ago, at the beginning of our past
How did all this matter come to have a mass?

It starts with the Higgs field which permeates, through time and through space, in which when a particle moves it can make, itself have a permenant mass
The plain particle is a gauge boson, which moving in the field then goes on, to cause an interaction, gaining inertia due to the fields drag

the beginning universe was hot fiddling a la Nero, the Higgs field that existed was of type zero, not ready yet to be our mass creating hero, but with high potential energy
As things cooled down there was a phase transition, a non-zero Higgs field came into existence, settling to the lowest PE point on its curve, making particles inert
Chorus

What if / there was no field of type Higgs
Electrons / Protons / neutrons wouldn't exist
We'd all just be particles photon like
No mass at all just light
At the start all was massless / there was nothing but light
