The fundamental problem in finding the truth does not reside in the search itself, but in finding a consistent and unambiguous language.
If we could find a consistent and unambiguous language, then we could also find the truth, but this is, unfortunately, impossible, which is both rationally understandable and supported by that evolution hasn’t succeeded to find it yet.
In this true absence of a truth, science tries to save itself by suggesting that it “think it has got it”, calling it “Higgs particle”. The underlying thought being: what is there to lose compared with the alternative? The problem with this rescue is, however, that it is incompatible with quantum mechanics, but since the goal actually is to save science (ie, continuation of research), the goal is actually accomplished.
The truth, however, disappeared somewhere between “Higgs particle” and “thought”.
