Recent Post To Matt's blog 'of particular significance'

Matt, your invitation for other possibly novel solutions for the “hierarchy problem” invites an idea about why the Higgs field is locked at a relatively small value.

“The solution to the hierarchy problem involves a completely novel mechanism.   Easy to say — but got any ideas?  Arkani-Hamed gave us two examples of mechanisms which he had studied that he couldn’t make work — but perhaps someone else can do better.”

So here is my half baked idea, not entirely novel, as it is a composite of several older theories jumbled together:  Should a large volume in three dimensional space, (make it universal in size to avoid boundary questions) be filled with charge that has the property of mutually repelling all other charge.  Generally easier to visualize as point charged particles.  Now, although the pressure and volume energy is large the total average field is near zero as long as the point charges are stationary.  That is the charge in any direction is balanced by the charge in the opposite direction.  However, this would be unstable because the effective shape of stationary point charges is spherical.  And point charges in motion relative to all surrounding point charges take on a shape that packs more efficiently than stationary point charges thus reducing the pressure and volume energy.    Any change in kinetic energy of the charge elements (increase or decrease) would reduce the packing efficiency and increase the pressure.  This kinetic charge structure generates a non zero field.  Or you can view it the other way around and say this universal non zero field produces the charge.

Dark Matter not Totally Dark

"Dark Matter" isn't all that dark and it is hiding in plain sight as it were.  The missing "dark" matter is the "warped" structure of space itself; and this structure is an even greater portion of the total mass of the universe than is often suggested.  The mass of the structure of the universe is locked in place but this structure (fabric) is subject to distortion or curvature by all massive objects.  This distorted "fabric" is the "dark matter."  But most of the structure of the universe is far enough from galaxies to go unnoticed in our estimates of the total.  

And the massive structure of the universe is cold but not totally dark; it is the source of the "cosmic microwave background radiation."  This cosmic radiation is the signature of the motions that lock the structure of the universe in a solid but rarefied form.

Dark Matter

I believe that the bulk of "dark matter" is the "fabric of space."   That is, that the bits of charge that make up the "fabric" of the Universe are locked in the structure of the Universe but the "fabric" is distorted due to the ,mass / energy, of the bits.

Universe of Charge

I believe the Universe is filled with stuff that repels like bits of the same stuff.  One can think of these bits as mono-poles or bits of electrical charge or bits with some other magical repelling nature.  I will consider these bits as fractional bits of negative charge equal to one third the charge commonly ascribed to an electron.   “And so can you!”
