I dont know where to post this musing, so i will try here
this is an incomplete idea and there is no data that i know about to back this up and i am completely incapable of deriving any sort of equations to model or describe this train of thought.
From what i understand, the Higgs particle/field is just a guess that is based on the current standard model, meaning that with what we have, there should be a particle that imparts mass to baryon matter.
I am under the assumption that the question is open and no real evidence has shown either way that a Higgs particle exists.
nor do we really know what it is.
I understand that we might have a good idea of what its properties are expected to be based on the standard model.
now going with the second law of thermodynamics
if i have a system that is being stressed, the result should be a measurable effect on the system.stating that the entropy of an isolated system which is not in equilibrium will tend to increase over time, approaching a maximum value at equilibrium.
to say it in very simple terms,
since the universe is expanding meaning that space/time itself is expanding, every single "point" in space time would be expanding in every direction that it can expand in.
would not this simple expansion impart a stress on the very "fabric" of space time?
could this stress be the mechanism that is imparting mass to matter?
so could the Higgs field be an effect of the conservation of energy from the expansion of space-time?
