I'm just throwing out an idea, which is probably wrong since I don't have a physics degree, but I'm curious anyways. I'd appreciate anyone giving feedback. For starters, I've read that the higgs mechanism, which gives all particles mass, is a paradigm of the meissner effect for superconductors. In super conductors, when T < tc, magnetic flux is expelled from the superconductor, and the field lines are consequentially "warped" around the superconductor, which allows electrons to travel on the field lines without resistance. Similarly with the higgs field, the field is warped around a particle that interacts with the higgs field. Because the higgs field is an intrinsic property of spacetime, one could say that mass warps spacetime (AKA gravity), due to the similar meissner effect, which warped magnetic flux lines. After all, the higgs mechanism has to be related to gravity, since gravity is proportional to mass.
