The Higgs has been discovered, so this is the last of my Monday/Tuesday weekly blogs. Blogging at Science 2.0 achieved my primary goal: debunking my GEM unified field proposal. Part of that work suggested there was "no stinkin' Higgs". The announcement from the LHC on July 4 of the Higgs discovery showed that technical speculation was in error. Don't believe the 1 in a million of being wrong PR however. The spin of the particle detected remains to be shown in the data.
[I changed the title of this blog to prepend Proto to vector space since a vector space is defined over a mathematical field. While I explored the possibility that the positive real numbers might make up a mathematical field, that effort did not pan out. In a subsequent blog, I will show how many properties of a vector space are shared by the positive real numbers over the group Z2.]
