From the perspective of the Little TOE (theory of everything), all matter in the universe derives from a sea of Higgs particles. This sea of charge is more a lattice than a liquid. Stronger than steel but thinner than vacuum. We see all particles as composed from the Higgs charges and the shadow of those charges. All forces follow from the charge of the Higgs field and the structure of the Higgs lattice.
The Little TOE brings together gravity and the quantum nature of the universe. And we understand the origin of the constants and quantum numbers in terms of the charge of the Higgs and the structure of the Higgs lattice.
The charge on the Higgs particles provides the energy that expands the universe that we see.
