# Do these photographs depict the Higgs Field?

[PHOTO 1]

Colter Dallman wrote in his paper - Space, Density, Relativity and Higgs Field Occupancy - (available online): In the theory of Higgs field occupancy, the quantum nature of fermions is explained to show that they have quantum wave functions which occupy a spherical area of space-time. This property of fermions is shown to be what gives them their attributes of rest mass and inertia, as well as what prevents them from traveling at the speed of light...

Ellipsometric macro-photography of Transmission Electron (fermion) Micrographs (TEMS), gratuitously provided by FDA/NIH of biological samples, generated my previous inquiries about electron-positron annihilation which may have actually shown a muon disintegration that resulted in pair production (is that helicity too?)

and images of surface plasmon resonances (Photo 4) generated by electrons striking nano-gold used to dark-stain the biological samples.

Over fifty years ago similar photographic gels (emulsions) exposed on mountain tops were the standard tool utilized in the discovery of the pion, muon and anti-neutrino. . A cloud chamber was used to image the positron which explained the negative solution to Diracs Equation - E^2 = (P^2)(c^2) + (m^2)(C^4) and foretold of the existence of anti-matter. (1@21)

The introductory chapter of Griffiths book on elementary particles (1) covers the subject nicely, is available on-line, and includes some early photographs along with the logic used to deduce the existence of the neutrino. (1 @ Fig. 1.3) “One of Powell’s earliest pictures showing the track of a pion in a photographic emulsion exposed to cosmic rays at high altitude. The pion (entering from the left) decays into a muon and a neutrino (the latter is electrically neutral, and leaves no track). (Source: Powell, C. F., Fowler, P. H. and Perkins, D. H. (1959) The Study of Elementary Particles by the Photographic Method Pergamon, New York. First published in (1947) Nature 159, 694.)”

To my knowledge none of these old photographs were subjected to ellipsometric macro-photography which also happens not to be the center of this question where the biological subject was back-lit and photographed at an angle.

Photo 5 -

An unspecified growth extends from a mound formed by silver atoms precipitated by the 100~200 KeV beam of electrons at low temperatures and within the vacuum of the TEM. The mound appears to be 300nm in diameter which would put its height at 50-75 nm. Photographs 1 and 2 were taken of projections in the region of the connecting segment.

My question arises from several anomalies associated with the Higgs Field as detailed in the March 5, 2013 the New York Times published an extensive article on the Higgs Boson (2) accompanied by artwork by Nigel Holmes all of which is available on-line.

First: the story reported initial excitement about the four-lepton signal - one of the signature ways the Higgs would dissolve - and I note a quad-like appearance at the top of Photo 1 where the image ends (Electrons might not be the correct leptons but leptons they are and electrons/photons in silver halide photographic gel precipitate silver atoms, in this respect the energy of the lepton might be determinable by use of a calibrated gel or photographic emulsion).

Second: Holmes impression of the Higgs Field reflects a lack of order that I, as an engineer, have trouble accepting as being associated with the potential creation of life. Photo 5. On the other hand Holmes depiction appears politically correct.

Third: Holmes impression of the octagonal detector set-up at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) depicted by Nigel Holmes in the NYT (1) compares to the octagonal images contained in Photo 2 many of which appear fractured.

Fourth times two: “The Eightfold Way” - “The Mendeleev of elementary particle physics was Murray Gell-Mann, who introduced the so-called Eightfold Way in 1961” (1) Octeps depicting the phylogeny of elementary particles - both discovered and predicted -appear to fit` within the images and understanding of the Higgs Field - Photo 2.

Do the images fit within the math I guess to be the underlying issue.
