When Do Quanta Pass Through the Higgs Field? What is a Higgs Boson Before Excitation

When Do Quanta Pass Through the Higgs Field? What is a Higgs Boson Before Excitation
Okay, it's a never ending battle and your work is never done. But I think the answer to these questions will go a long way toward helping me create a cinematic picture.

1. If the higgs field is everywhere, then particles interact with it whenever they are exposed to it. But when are they exposed to it? How does it interact with the particles in the interior of a solid body, e.g. a plank of wood?
2. A higgs boson is one that has reached excitation. So what is it when it has not reached excitation?
The god who allows children to be raped out of respect for the free will choice of the rapist, but punishes gay men for engaging in mutually consensual sex couldn't possibly be responsible for an intelligently designed universe.

I may defend your right to free speech, but i won't help you pass out flyers.

It's not me waking up that's the problem, it's getting both girls to sleep at the same time.

1) The higgs field permeates everything, there is nothing presently known to us that could shield it. It would require something like the wall of a false vacuum bubble to shield it, or temperatures many orders of magnitude above anything in nature. When a particle such as the electron moves, it ever so often feels a little tug by the higgs field changing the way it propagates, thus being forced to travel below the speed of light. Same for the quarks and electrons in a plank of wood. If those electrons didn't regularly interact with the higgs field, they would lose their mass
and matter would be annihilated.

2) The higgs boson hasn't reached an excitation - it IS the excitation.

Ya just had to use plank(planck) and wood in the same sentence.

It's gonna take a while for my brain to reset.

Did you know that you need to burn several hundred planks of wood to generate the energy equivalent of one Planck mass?

Or just one really big one?

Sorry, since you also threw in excitation I'm stuck on Higgs priapism.

I don't know what Peter would say to that (he is 88 years old after all)
