What people do not seem to understand is that the vacuum Higgs field is a Glauber coherent state of off mass shell spin zero Higgs quanta.

It's actually a virtual time crystal in Wilczek's sense.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virtual_particle

Virtual particles are stabilized frozen into the macro-quantum coherent ground states by P.W. Anderson's phase rigidity. This is distinct from their role as random zero point fluctuations. The latter is analogous to the normal fluid with the former as the superfluid condensate in He4 for example.

Gapless acoustic phonons that correspond to transverse crystal distortions seem to be analogous to spin 1 quanta. However, the Lorentz group does not describe crystals in the v/c << 1 limit.

Jack Sarfatti Note there are both acoustic and optical phonons. The acoustic phonons are analogous to the gapless Goldstone phase modes. The optical phonons with an energy gap are analogous to the Higgs bosons with mass of 125 Gev.

Jack Sarfatti In the case of the Higgs field, if it is a time crystal then it has a spectrum of frequencies f =/= 0 if it changes in time as well as a spectrum of wave vectors k =/= 0 if it also is inhomogeneous in space. The past and future cosmological horizons provide long wave cutoffs.
