Creation of matter

  1. Sep 12, 2010 #1
    How was matter created in this universe?
    If the Higgs Boson is theoretically able to create matter from energy, then isn't that fairly good proof that it exists?
    Or are there other explanations?

    We don't know.
    Maybe, but until there is experimental evidence, the physics community won't fully accept it.

    I suppose that at an early enough time, when the universe was sufficiently small, there must have been no distinction between particles and spacetime. So perhaps that is the way it is now, particles are a different manifestation of spacetime.
