The Nonexistent Higgs Boson

An open letter to all scientists at CERN, containing a prediction that all speculation on the possibility of there being a Higgs boson can be ruled out by the speed of light thought experiment.

There has been a recent press announcement that the Large Hadron Collider at CERN is to be switched on again in September and will be brought up to speed during the Winter. This is in spite of the tariff for electricity being much higher during the Winter months, adding several millions of dollars to the running costs. I have no objection to such additional costs, provided that those in charge know what they are doing and are not just casting about, in the hope of getting lucky.

At the moment it would appear that there is no justification for the extra cost. I am basing this view on the fact that an important slice of the research programme is to do with the well trumpeted search for the Higgs boson and the carrying out of other particle physics that rely on the mass-energy link in the equation E=mc2. Both these features are founded on the usage of special and general relativity, yet both can be tested and shown to be flawed concepts, without the use of the Large Hadron Collider. This is possible because they both rely on two specific requirements, which are, that the speed of light must be a constant and mass a variable, which can be proved to be right or wrong.

Let it be the case that the extra money be spent with alacrity, if it can be shown to be the only way of arriving at a conclusion. To do this it must first, by using special and general relativity, be proved that the two thought experiments contained in Parts 3 and 4 of the Paper entitled E = mc2 on this website, are wrong. If they cannot be proved to be wrong, then you have a paradigm shift on your hands, and the money can be better spent on other things.
