In particle physics it is an interesting challenge to postulate that the rigid FORM and topological structure of elementary particles is the origin of different FUNCTIONS of rigid transformable string particles.
The resulting model is called "Quantum FFF Theory" (FFF=Function Follows Form). As a consequence however, the standard model should be extended with an alternative Higgs boson of different mass series (recent LHC measurements)
as a base for unstable microscopic dark matter black hole (DMBH) nuclei (for Ball Lightning as interference Higgs knots) up to stable (Sunspot and S-Nova) black hole nuclei merging into a cyclic Big Crunch/ Big Bang nucleus.
The vacuum particles are assumed to oscillate in tandem inside spiral (chiral) flux tubes between photon communication nodes with a variable Planck length as a base, creating a tetrahedron based chiral vacuum lattice connected by nodes between two tetrahedrons.
As a result, the dark matter black hole Big Bang was the cold explosion into dark matter black hole splinter chunks evaporating into the oscillating Axion/ Higgs field and series of smaller chunks, leaving a trail of Hydrogen creating stable black holes behind, also called the Lyman Alpha forest.
So, the new extended standard model is based on different geometrical string structures for Higgs based dark matter black holes but also extended with a monopole photon/ Gluon system. 2 Introduction.
Conclusion: each lightning stroke has a leading ball lightning black hole created by magnetic monopole interference . see Quantum FFF Theory.
