:lol: I'm not totally sure exactly what that statement means, but did I write something that makes you think I changed my mind ?


This particular one: "That’s why we need to go to all the expense of trying to produce a real Higgs, which will appear in an out-state." :grin:

We can't see virtual particles -- incidentally, that's why they are called "virtual" -- but as you say, we are trying our greatest efforts to see them as "real" particles. And when we do confirm their existence as real particles, that gives more support to the model, which is that particles are exchanged when they interact.
