The weak force is long range originally, but because of the ultracold vacuum that surrounds us becomes short range, owing to the pseudo-Meissner effect caused by the Higgs particles. The short-range force translates to a ﬁnite mass of the force carrier particle in quantum ﬁeld theory, as we shall see in the following sections. The Higgs particle condenses at the ultracold temperature and causes a phase transition of the vacuum, a phenomenon similar to the vapor-to-water phase transition. Elementary particles, which have zero mass originally, acquire mass because of the dragging effect caused by swimming through the condensed sea of the Higgs particle.

In the Standard Model, we shall learn that all the fundamental particles in nature have vanishing mass originally and acquire ﬁnite mass through interactions with the Higgs ﬁeld, which pervades the surrounding space. Namely, the mass of an elementary particle is not an intrinsic property of its own but is an acquired attribute as a result of environmental changes. This concept served as a major breakthrough in elucidating the deep roots of gauge theory and so reaching uniﬁed theories. 4 Natural Units Universal constants such as „ and c appear frequently in equations.
