This week, the Large Hadron Collider at CERN announced the discovery of a new boson with mass of ~125 GeV. Many have interpreted these results as evidence in favor of the Higgs boson believed to provide a mechanism for subatomic particle mass generation. However, CERN stated in their announcement that the true identity of the new boson, if confirmed, has yet to be determined. In this article, I argue the proposed Higgs boson mass (~125 GeV) is too large to directly explain any effect as common as particle mass generation. An alternative is introduced in which subatomic particle masses are generated by cross-dimensional projections. These cross-dimensional projections are a natural consequence of inherent uncertainty in the connectivity dimensionality field of physical space due to its non-uniform discrete-continuous dual structure. Like the Higgs mechanism, these cross-dimensional projections break electroweak symmetry. These cross-dimensional projections also break the strong nuclear interaction gauge symmetry, and this causes matter to anti-matter asymmetry. I propose that Space Mixing Theory is useful for studying these types of symmetry breaking, the mechanisms for subatomic particle mass generation, inflation, dark matter, and the unification of physical interactions.
