Lawrence Krauss on Higgs Boson

… the Higgs field implies that otherwise seemingly empty space is much richer and weirder than we could have imagined even a century ago, and in fact that we cannot understand our own existence without understanding “emptiness” better. Readers of mine will know that as a physicist, I have been particularly interested in “nothing” in all of its forms and its relation to something — namely us. The discovery of the Higgs says that “nothing” is getting ever more interesting.
