These are things about the higgs boson that am confused with: 1: how does particle physics explain the weakness of gravity, since higgs is just another force carrier like any other, why is it so weak? 2: how do virtual bosons, popping in and out of existence, exchange between two particles if they only exist momentarily when exchanging between particles means moving a distance and unless they move infinetely fast they take time moving this distance, if they take time then they live for more then an instance and then they are not virtual bosons. 3: Why do higgs boson only stick to some particles and not others? are there any shared common features of all massless particles, do all particles with mass have one same thing that allows them to excite the higgs field. 4: Why exactly is a higgs boson unstable but light is not? 5: HOW does the higgs boson have mass when it is the generator of mass, I mean.. you could say it has this amount of energy but if it's just the creator of mass then how can it have mass. It's sort of like saying photons have charge, but they don't they are just oscillations in the charge field. 6: why exactly does the potential energy field have to be "mexical hat"-like why cant it just be uniform and the (potential energy)/(higgs boson) be waves in the higgs field 7: How exactly do two virtual higgs bosons "exchange" between particles. If anybody could adress some of those quesitons and maybe explain what exactly is happening with virtual particles and the higgs field it'd be nice, altough I realise not much logic may be behind this other than pure maths.
