B Higgs field radio

  1. Oct 12, 2016 #1
    The higgs field is everywhere.. how do you use it in a 2 way communication radio so the United States can communicate with the other side of the planet by passing right thru the mantle and core without using any satellite relay station?

    You don't.

    The temperature field of the atmosphere is everywhere too. Doesn't mean you can use it as a radio either.

    What is the connection of the temperature field of the atmosphere to the higgs field?

    They are both fields.

    More specifically, they are both scalar fields.

    You'd need to use an _excitation_ of the field to send signals. For example, photons are _excitation_ of the EM field, and radios emit very large numbers of low-energy photons - that's what radio signals *are*.

    Higgs field excitations are Higgs particles. Their properties are utterly unsuitable for sending long-range signals.
