Tony Smith has kindly summarised his well known analysis of the correct Higgs mechanism, in light of its relation to MUBs. This prediction of a mass triplet associated to a top quark condensate should be taken far more seriously than anything a stringer, loopie or groupie says about EW symmetry breaking.
For a $3 \times 3$ octonion matrix version of the physics model see this wonderful 1995 paper. I am very sorry, Tony, that I never spotted that before. Now I still think fairies are fairies, but Tony's main prediction is for quark mass states, not for a Higgs boson or other new field. Let us hope he is correct.
And here are Tony's papers at viXra.
