The Little TOE (theory of everything) is somewhat like the concept of the Dirac Sea of electrons. But we see a lattice of charged elements with 1/3 the charge of an electron. Although these charged elements do not conform to common expectations for the Higgs Boson we find it appropriate to refer to this single basic element as the Higgs. Because all matter derives from this Sea of Higgs elements.

The Little Toe (theory of everything) suggests that the mass of an entire solar system could be converted to energy by a shock wave. And that such a shock wave could start at a planet any where in the system and travel outward at the speed of light.
But some other ideas are still kicking around... http://live.psu.edu/story/13119
We see that many GRB have a signature that would match a solar system similar to our own.
