Title : Is nature natural?
The Standard Model of particle physics which combines quantum mechanics and relativity describes the microscopic world astonishingly well.
General Relativity describes the gravitational phenomena extremely well. Nevertheless the combination of the Standard Model and General Relativity is not considered as the ultimate description of nature as the Higgs mass and the dark energy are unnatural in this framework.
I'll overview the attempts made in the past on the possibly natural explanations of two observables and current understanding we have.
Then I'll introduce my own work trying to understand the Higgs mass in terms of cosmology and share the implications of the explorations.
