Higgs boson vs GR's spacetime

  1. Mar 20, 2013 #1
    i was just reading a article that said that if the higgs boson is proven for fact, then the concept of the mass effect (spacetime pressure and curvature) would be obsolete. Is this true??? i spent so much time teaching my self about SR and GR.

    Can you cite the article? The claim seems wrong, but without seeing the actual article it is hard to say.

    the article is actually really long (It more of like a paper) <crackpot link removed> the part about this matter is towards the part appendix "A" about newtonian laws.

    That paper is crackpot nonsense, and we don't discuss crackpottery here.
