Higgs-Bosons beat Bosuns (and for that matter, Bisons) any day -- they have infinite potentiality for massiveness and for holding things together (integrating), while bisons and bosuns have finite actual mass. Perhaps there is a useful symbol of the primordial state waiting to be discovered out there is the particle accelerators! :tongue:

Suffering there certainly is, but no sufferer,
no doer, though certainly the deed is found.
peace is achieved, but no-one's appeased,
the way is walked, but no walker's to be found.

- Visuddhimagga XVI, 90
