It’s been more than three years since we’ve found the Higgs boson. So how does it give particles mass?
Well that was thoroughly edifying. Thanks contributors!
A couple videos that help explain how the higgs field confers mass to fundamental particles, and how YOUR mass is not from the higgs field.
I find the second discussion amazing actually, that the mass of the matter that we interact with is just energy stored in the vacuum that makes up the "empty space" that makes up the majority of matter in the universe.
