Physicists have yet to discover the Higgs particle, which is necessary to complete and substantiate their current standard model of particle physics. If it is not found many scientists fear they will have to go back to the drawing board, and admit that the laws and physics ruling the universe on a fundamental level still eludes them.
Theoretically speaking, the Higgs boson adds mass to particles.
This brings up an interesting question for me. You see, most scientists also believe that the human mind and its operation is an epiphenomenon—a mere microscopic outcome of numerous electro-chemical processes in the physical brain. Human consciousness and mind is simply the outcome and mechanistic dynamics of dead matter.
This means we need to have a purely physical answer as to why some human ideas carry more weight than others. Do heavy thinkers attract more Higgs bosons to their notions?
This, of course…
