A modified form of local gauge invariance in which fermion field phase is allowed to vary with each space point but not each time point, leads to the introduction of a new compensatory field different from the electromagnetic field associated with the photon.
In other words, a gauge field results from fermion field phase changes.
In brief, I subscribe to the idea that the Higgs field can also act as an intermediary field carrying a mindlike quality through its production of the imaginary mass (tachyonic) component when it interacts with fermion fields.
