I suppose the title says it all. I'm not a physicist, obviously, and all I know on the subject I know from pop science. I tried Googling this but got pretty much nothing. Here's what I want to know--is there a difference between the Higgs field and the phenomenon we know as space, or are they one and the same? Enormous amounts of apologies if this is the most hilariously stupid question you've ever come across, but, hey--if it's that hilariously stupid, you should thank me for the free giggles.
