The Higgs-Boson is a subatomic building block that gives mass to everything in the Universe. The confirmation of its existence in 2012 at the Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland validated the Standard Model of Physics. But what does the discovery of the Higgs-Boson mean to humanity on a spiritual level?

Neither scientists nor theologians care for the Higgs-Boson’s “God Particle” nickname, and yet the particle is so fundamental to all that exists here, the moniker makes sense. Literally everything that we can see or experience has this particle at its foundation.

Many spiritual traditions have at their core the concept of Oneness — that all is One, interconnected. Modern science already tells us we are all entangled at a quantum level due to our common origin from the Big Bang. The confirmation of the Higgs-Boson confirms that at the deepest levels, anything and everything here has a common building block, a common foundation.

In centuries past, “Oneness” was just theory, speculation. It was a compelling concept, yet it could not be proven scientifically. Today, the fact that “we are all connected” has been substantiated from a number of directions. The common origin point of All That Is (The Big Bang), the Higgs Field, the Unified Field, and the Higgs-Boson all point to the fact that everything has a common foundation.

We are all One. Everything any one of us does influences the whole, even if you’re just having a thought. If you do something dishonest and think you’ve “gotten away with it,” think again; it all registers in the Field, and it all matters.

Ultimately, it’s up to each individual to decide how the finding the Higgs-Boson influences their lives and spirituality. However, with its discovery, it’s getting harder and harder to deny that we’re truly all in this together.
