Then I fear there is no good description. There are various analogies around but I don't think any of them accurately describes what is going on.

Thank you anyways
 
Even if there was no Higgs field, proton and neutron would still have mass.

Because of the constituent quarks’ confinement energy?

Can a static particle have mass in the Higgs scenario then?


IH
 
Static to my mind would mean quasi-0 K temperature...it this the generally accepted meaning?

Individual particles do not have a temperature.
