MAIN WORKING HYPOTHESIS:
Standard ("spontaneous") symmetry breaking is done by manually adding a term to the scalar self-interaction mode.
This produces the so called "Mexican Hat" potential well.
A new type of symmetry breaking is proposed based on actual, deterministic self-interactions (synchronized mode).
This natuarally produces ALL the major qualities of standard symmetry breaking:
- Vacuum Expectation Value and thus a real vacuum
- Potential well
- Goldstone modes
- and much more..
Further it is hypotized that, in part because of the self-synchronization, symmetry breaking is no longer a discrete process, but instead maintains a state on the edge of equilibrium.
This could have a number of interesting implications both in quantum mechanics and for example in fields such as bio-chemistry.
