### Re: i as an Infinitely Tiered Exponent

Ok. You prooved that i is a root of the equation : x=e xπ/2 . But iterating u n+1 ==e u n π/2 , starting with any real number will make a divergent sequence, going to infinity. Starting with i will make you stay in i. When you try to differenciate the function f(x)=e xπ/2 , you get f'(x)=(π/2)e xπ/2...

The rest of the mass that makes the proton heavy is a lot of energy. And, in quantum chromodynamics, this energy can be considered as pairs of quarks/antiquarks formed with decays of gluons, so the Higgs bosons consider this as a mass.
