Dave the Atheist asked,
"So you get to define god any way you want ?
God is now a Higgs Boson?"
I use the word, god, the way the great cosmologists like Einstein defined it,
"...when asked about God, Kaku is likely to quote Einstein’s suggestion that there are two types of god: “One god is a personal god, the god that you pray to, the god that smites the Philistines, the god that walks on water. That’s the first god. But there’s another god, and that’s the god of Spinoza. That’s the god of beauty, harmony, simplicity.”
It’s that second “God” to which Kaku is drawn. He tells innovation tech today that the universe could have been random, but that instead “Our universe is rich; it is beautiful, elegant.”https://bigthink.com/robby-berman/michio-kaku-believes-in-god-if-not-that-god
As to the 2nd question, "God is now a Higgs Boson?"
Like I said, "God is short for God Particle (Higgs Boson)" which isn't a particle, it's more of a universal field, pervading and animating the universe, very similar to what the ancient Greek Stoics called, Logos,
"the active reason pervading and animating the Universe. It was conceived as material and is usually identified with God or Nature. The Stoics also referred to the seminal logos ("logos spermatikos"), or the law of generation in the Universe, which was the principle of the active reason working in inanimate matter. Humans, too, each possess a portion of the divine logos."https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Logos#Stoics
"In the begining was the Logos. The Logos was with God and the Logos was God." John 1:1 (in the original Greek, which has since been lost in translation to English)
The original Greek, Logos, is more accurately translated as "Tao" (The way of Nature) in Chinese versions of the Bible.
