The Higgs mechanism is the Messiah
and particles are attracted
to its presence.
As it gathers mass,
it gains momentum.
Soon it is affected
by phonon and boson waves,
which spawn a solid,
or a lattice of crystalline structure
of positively charged atoms.
The more you read, 
it seems that
every answer creates
twenty questions.

Questions are good...means one is listening, hopefully. You handled this topic well... And the same can be said for the Binle... It always leads to more questions :)
