Vacuum and acceleration

  • #1

Main Question or Discussion Point

does anyone have a view on how an anti particle interacts with the Higgs field?

Does it have negative mass and could that mass be greater than the associated "positive" matter particle created in vacuum space as the universe fabric extends.

If true, the expansion drives the borrowing from the vacuum, and a fractionally higher "anti" mass / coupling with Higgs of the anti particle would drive the acceleration in expansion.

As the fabric stretches the likelihood of annihilation collisions would fractionally diminish so the system would feedback and the borrowed vacuum particles would grow greater over time and add to a "thinning / dilution / surface tension" of the Higgs field?

That would seem to explain dark energy and initial inflation and now acceleration of expansion..

Thoughts please?

In exactly the same way as particles.

Antiparticles have positive mass as well, exactly the same mass as their partners.
Thoughts please?
None of this makes sense.

while it may well not be correct, the logical argument does make sense.

No, not at all. You can't use popular science descriptions as arguments for anything. They are at best somewhat linked to the actual physics, but using them to make predictions beyond their applicability doesn't work.

And how is progress made beyond the conventional thinking?

You cannot compare what you have proposed in this thread with the "what if" thinking of professional scientists. A professional scientist knows where the boundaries of the box is and how to think outside of it. Your "argument" is just based on word salad and misunderstanding of what the box looks like.

The OP is personal speculation based on misunderstandings. Thread closed.
