"The presence of this field, now believed to be confirmed, explains why some fundamental particles have mass when based on the symmetries controlling their interactions they should be massless." (wiki) It would seem, to myself, a novice, that the Higgs field and its corresponding particle, if they did not exist, there would not be mass. In General Relativity, mass/energy deforms the geometry of the spacetime continuum. It would seem that both QFT and GR have something in common: mass. Is there any thinking of trying to reconcile the two because of this commonality?
