Then again, Higgs and Einstein isn't that separated in time. There are some decades between them, and Higgs shaped his theory wanting to incorporate relativity in it as I understands it. and the discrete bits theory of a container universe isn't that different from the way Einstein defined the moon, there even when I look away. It's when you use local definitions that the container model becomes really questionable, observer dependencies, and how to think of those, real or not? Defining it from a background of constants, locally equivalent, a container model stops making sense. But 'c' and relativity still works for you, observer dependencies works perfectly, but a Higgs field need to be defined.
