comment Origin of lepton/quark generations?
This is the closest answer inside the orthodoxy. Pushing a little bit, we can notice that the complex phase could be expected to appear as derived in some mathematical model, in the same way that the Higgs is a derived in Connes formalism of the Standard Model.

Hmm that looks as an exchange of a meson, does it?

Yep, it seems that a Lorentz invariant single term in the lagrangian is not possible. And still I am a bit uneasy about a definite no.

comment Why do electron and proton have the same but opposite electric charge?
absence of anomalies in the standard model. Sum of all the electric charges in one generation of quarks and leptons must be zero.

comment If protons and electrons had similar masses
More or less, they have... (105.6582+1776.82)/2= 941.24 MeV, and proton mass is 938.27 MeV. You could do some funny barycenters playing with muons and taus instead of electrons. (PS: note that the first average are yukawa-higgs masses, the second mass is QCD mass; completely unrelated. Funny coincidence)

comment What was Feynman's “much better way of presenting the electrodynamics” — which did **not** appear in the Feynman lectures?
@littleO my fault, I misread that you were quoting some preface to the lectures, not the interview. You are right, the "much better way" can not be DysonMaxwell.

@littleO 1961 happened after 1948.

comment What happens to matter in a standard model with zero Higgs VEV?
arxiv.org/abs/arXiv:0901.3958 Gedanken Worlds without Higgs: QCD-Induced Electroweak Symmetry Breaking by Chris Quigg and Robert Shrock seems to be the precise answer to the question, is it?
