Most people will remain unable to verify these findings. They could or could not have found what they claim to have found. Just a few people know
whether this is a marketing hoax for more funding or whether it actually has some meaning to it. I just read that the measurements taken during this
"discovery" were not exactly what the Standard Model predicts - and yet they still think they found it. Well, ok. Can't verify that anyways.
The discovery of the Higgs means that now the Standard Model is almost complete. Yet... it does still not explain gravity, the effects of the so
called "dark matter" and "dark energy" inventions that SHOULD be explained by such an overblown model. But they are still not covered by any
explanation but mere fantasy due to a mismatch of theory and observation.
I firmly believe that the foundation of physics lacks a fundamental understanding of how our reality really works. Smashing parts together and see
what happens is IMO not the right way to find out what there is to be found out.
It could very well be that the experiments conducted in particle physics - by smashing two things together - might be a way to CREATE stuff that was
not there in the first place. If this is the case we are just looking at a small corner of physics anyways. Time will tell.
