@masterpaperlink:Maybe objects from the higgs field only attract each other when they combine with waves (becoming matter). At that point, higgs particles still attract each other, but only the higgs particles that are already combined with other waves (other objects). It wouldn't involve electricity, but the idea could be compared to how magnets only attract each other once they're electromagnetically charged. The difference here is that since objects are continuously gaining and losing the same number of higgs particles (for lack of better terminology), they never lose their charge. The only problem with my theory that I can think of, which I realized since that last post, is that light waves, which by definition do not interact with the higgs field, are still effected by gravity. Perhaps they do interact with the higgs field after all, but to such an inconceivably small extent that the amount by which their speed is reduced as a result the higgs particles is nearly impossible (and probably impossible for us) to measure. I don't know. Maybe the speed of light isn't the universal speed limit quite the way science says it is (an idea which I would totally disregard if not for the M82 galaxy radio waves, which are apparently moving roughly 4 times lightspeed.
@joeyravn: Why? The higgs field is equal everywhere (as far as we know) and an object will always have the same mass assuming it's still moving at the same speed. Why would things be so random if my idea is right?
Random thought: So what if what we think of as a graviton (the theoretical particle that gives us gravity) and the higgs field (not the same as a higgs boson) is actually the same thing?
Matter runs into higgs field and the more of it that piece of matter interacts with it, the more mass that matter has. Perhaps it's not that matter gets slowed down but still remains separate from the higgs field, but instead, portions of the massless higgs field combine with waves that are attracted to it (since everything in the universe is basically just waves) and combine to form what we know of as matter.
Perhaps the higgs field is just naturally attracted to itself, and such large concentrations of it in one place make other pieces of it (which are essentially fused to waves to make matter, and therefore drag those waves, or in other words, us, along). Following this logic, perhaps the theoretical graviton is just the higgs field and with the creation of a higgs boson and therefore validation of the higgs field theory, we've already discovered it. Granted, I know almost nothing (well closer to nothing than actual physicists) about quantum physics, but this is just something that occurred to me as a possibility. Is there any reason current science knows about of why that might not be the case?
It's an entirely different way of thinking. What you need is an actual thing you want to make. I'm a goddamned guru at Objective-C, but that's only because I needed to learn it for iOS development. Without that outlet, I doubt I would have gotten very far at all.
I killed one back in the day playing gold version. That was the first time I saw that particular pokemon (ice pig thing, forget the name) so I thought it was just the animation for it. It was months before I found out what a shiny pokemon actually was.
