Thanks from a fellow non-physicist for sharing that! In particular, it discussed why a Higgs field was hypothesized at all.

I learned from this complementary video, as well:
("The Higgs Boson Explained" from PHD Comics; thanks to Loren Miller for sharing it here on A/N)

To anyone who knows:  At 2:25 of the "Dummies" video, it shows Standard Model chart that is very different from the one in Wikipedia. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Standard_Model  That model seems to be rather complete without any "missing place" for the Higgs Boson.  The one in the video has 8 extra grid spaces, seven of which seem to be taken by one particle, "gluon".  WTF?  I can't figure where the Higgs fits into the Standard Model ....
