I glanced at the Higgs paper a year or two ago, but since I was not familiar with the proof of the four colour theorem, and I did not believe in localised Higgs states, I put it aside and forgot about it. Here is an old blog post by the authors.
Now we see that the construction looks much like the $12 + 12 = 24$ dimensions of a tetractys core. There are $12$ sectors on each sheet of their particle frame, left and right. Like the $B_3$ braids, each sector has a triplet structure.
The Higgs particles are supposed to form Cooper pairs, which must be able to generate the mass of the electroweak bosons, hence their mass formula. Of course, this formula is then independent of the construction that they happen to use, and may be considered evidence for a condensate. Anyway, picture examples of particle assignments in the paper include:
