Scalar Boson and Quantum Non-locality

  1. Jul 5, 2012 #1
    It's impossible that the higgs boson was the only scalar boson in nature. Could quantum-nonlocality be mediated by scalar boson or connected with scalar field? How do you discount or refute this?

    How do you refute any ad hoc, off-the-cuff conjecture?

    First, there is not one iota of evidence in support of it. Second, it explains exactly nothing since there are a lot of different quantum non-local scenarios and none seem to have anything to do with the particular particle being observed (i.e. whether it has rest mass of not). Third, it makes no useful predictions.
