## Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi everybody,

let's assume the Higg's boson exists. If I understand String theory correctly (and I understand very little of it), then Higg's particle - just as any other particle - can be expressed as a particular vibration state of a string.

If I understand Higg's theory correctly, then Higg's particle is the only particle to induce spacetime curvature itself. All other mass does so by invoking Higg's particles.

Now, my question is: how can I understand that one particular vibrational state (and that particular one ONLY) alters spacetime geometry? Sounds weird. Do I simply have to accept this or is there more to Higgs/String theory?

thanks in advance
