The Wikipedia article about Higgs field poses some questions to me.
The article says that the Higgs field is a "nonthermal" field, a field whose energy does not decrease as the universe expands, yet it claims that in the early universe Higgs field was stronger which led to inflation. How the field's strength could decrease then?
If the Higgs field was stronger in early universe, why the article claims that elementary particles had no mass at early stages of the universe?
The article claims that Higgs field is repulsive and is behind the inflation. Yet it does not interact with photons. Would not that make the photons not to follow the universe's expansion so that we would see distant stars not actually in the direction where they should be?
The article claims that all electrons in neutron beta-decay are left-handed only for a stationary observer while for a moving observer this changes. Does it mean that one can measure his speed relative to the Higgs field by counting the right-handed electrons in neutron's decay?
The article claims that in absence of Higgs field electrons would have no rest mass. But I cannot imagine a charged particle without rest mass because the electromagnetic field has potential energy. Does it mean that in absence of Higgs field electrons are chargeless?
