1. Introduction

The Antarctic Impulsive Transient Antenna (ANITA) experiment [1] is established to the detection of the cosmogenic ultra-high-energy (UHE) neutrinos at the scale of EeV. The three balloon flights of the ANITA experiment have produced two unusual steeply upward-going cosmic ray events with energies of ≈0.6 EeV [2] and ≈0.56 EeV [3] . These shower events have the characteristics of the decay of a tau lepton, which emerges from the surface of the ice, and the tau lepton is explained as the product of a UHE parent tau neutrino by the charged-current interactions with the Earth matter. However, such UHE tau neutrino cannot survive the passage through the Earth. The explanations for such anomalous events include the sterile neutrino origin [4] [5] , the decay of the quasi-stable dark matter in the Earth’s core [6] [7] , and supersymmetric stau slepton [8] .

This paper posits that the upward-going ANITA events are derived from the cosmic ray of the baryonic-dark matter (BDM) Higgs boson that travels through the Earth. In the standard model (SM) for baryonic matter, the SM spontaneous symmetry breaking through the Higgs mechanism for the symmetrical massless electromagnetism and massless weak interaction produced massless photon, massive weak bosons, and the standard model Higgs boson. (The standard model classifies all known elementary particles for baryonic matter, describes the electromagnetic, weak, and strong interactions, and does not include dark matter and the gravitational force.) Equally, in the extended standard model (ESM) for baryonic matter, dark matter, and gravity, the BDM spontaneous symmetry breaking through the Higgs mechanism for the symmetrical massless baryonic matter left-handed neutrinos and massless dark matter right-handed neutrinos produced massless baryonic matter left-handed neutrinos, sterile massive dark matter neutrinos, and the BDM Higgs boson. Dark matter particles are the sterile massive neutrinos. This paper proposes the BDM Higgs boson is the composite of the high-mass tau neutrino and the high-mass dark matter neutrino. Other than gravity, sterile dark matter does not undergo any interaction with baryonic matter. Meanwhile, dark matter is incompatible to dense baryonic matter [9] , because the incompatibility explains the failure to detect dark matter by the contact (interaction) between dark matter and baryonic matter on the Earth. The BDM Higgs boson is both baryonic matter and dark matter. The inactive dark matter in the BDM Higgs boson allows the BDM Higgs boson to be stable (inactive) in space, air, water, and ice. However, during the passage through the high-density part of the Earth, because of the inactivity and the incompatibility between dark matter and dense baryonic matter, the BDM Higgs boson is transformed into the oscillating BDM Higgs boson between the composite of the high-mass tau neutrino and the high-mass dark matter neutrino and the composite of the high-mass tau neutrino and the low-mass dark matter neutrino to maintain stability (inactivity) with the maximum dark matter (the high-mass dark energy neutrino) and to minimize incompatibility with the minimum dark matter (the low-mass dark matter neutrino). Near the end of the passage through the Earth, the low-density water-ice layer of the Earth allows the dark matter in the oscillating BDM Higgs boson to escape, so the oscillating BDM Higgs boson decays into the high-mass tau neutrino with the extra energy and the incompatible low-mass dark matter neutrino (27 eV) which is easier to escape than the high-mass dark matter neutrino. The high-mass tau neutrino is converted into ultra-high-energy tau neutrino which decays into tau lepton through the charged-current interactions, and tau lepton emerges from the surface of ice. As shown later in the paper, based on the periodic table of elementary particles [10] [11] , the calculated mass for the high-mass tau neutrino with the extra energy is 0.47 EeV in the good agreement with the observed 0.6 and 0.56 EeV [2] [3] .

In the ESM to include baryonic matter, dark matter, and gravity, the seven extra spacetime dimensions in the 11 spacetime dimensional membrane in M-theory are in the form of the seven mass dimensional orbitals for all internal symmetries of elementary particles [10] [11] . The two sets of the seven mass dimensional orbitals are the seven principal mass dimensional orbitals for stable baryonic leptons (electron and left-handed neutrinos), gauge bosons, gravity, and dark matter and the seven auxiliary mass dimensional orbitals for unstable leptons (muon and tau) and quarks. These two seven mass dimensional orbitals generate the periodic table of elementary particles and the ESM for baryonic matter, dark matter, and gravity. The periodic table of elementary particles calculates accurately the masses of all elementary particles and the cosmic rays by using only five known constants [12] [13] .

The formation of the periodic table of elementary particles involves the three steps. The first step is the BDM spontaneous symmetry breaking through the Higgs mechanism for the symmetrical five massless baryonic matter left-handed neutrinos and five massless dark matter right-handed neutrinos on the principal mass dimensional orbitals to produce massless baryonic matter left-handed neutrinos, sterile massive dark matter neutrinos, and the BDM Higgs boson. The second step is the addition of electromagnetism as U(1)_{EM} and the standard model spontaneous symmetry breaking (SU(2)_{L} × U(1)_{Y} → U(1)_{EM}) through the Higgs mechanism to produce massless neutrinos-massive weak bosons, massive electron-massless photon, and the standard model Higgs boson. The third step is the addition of the seven auxiliary mass dimensional orbitals for unstable leptons (muon and tau) and quarks to form the periodic table of elementary particles. Section 2 describes the BDM spontaneous symmetry breaking for baryonic matter neutrinos and dark matter neutrinos. Section 3 describes the addition of U(1), the standard model spontaneous symmetry breaking, and the upward-going ANITA events. Section 4 describes the period table of elementary particles for baryonic matter and dark matter and the cosmic rays.

2. The BDM Spontaneous Symmetry Breaking for Symmetrical Baryonic Matter and Dark Matter

The first step in the formation of the periodic stable of elementary particles is the BDM spontaneous symmetry breaking for baryonic matter and dark matter. As described in the previous paper [14] , there are one type of baryonic matter and five types of dark matter, resulting in the mass ratio of dark matter to baryonic matter as 5 to 1 in the good agreement with the observation [15] . Initially, the symmetry U(1)_{L} × U(1)_{R} between baryonic matter and dark matter in each mass dimensional orbital provided the symmetrical distribution between baryonic matter as the five massless left-handed neutrinos (ν_{L5}, ν_{L6}, ν_{L7}, ν_{L8}, and ν_{L9}) and dark matter as the five massless right-handed neutrinos (ν_{R5}, ν_{R6}, ν_{R7}, ν_{R8}, and ν_{R9}) on the principal mass dimensional orbitals from d (mass dimensional orbital number) = 5 to d = 9 as in Figure 1.

Each mass dimensional orbital had U(1)_{L} × U(1)_{R} symmetry. The spontaneous symmetry breaking through the Higgs mechanism for the symmetrical massless baryonic matter left-handed neutrinos and massless dark matter right-handed neutrinos produced four massless baryonic matter left-handed neutrinos (ν_{L5}, ν_{L6}, ν_{L7}, and ν_{L8}) one massive baryonic matter left-handed neutrino (ν_{L9}), five sterile massive dark matter neutrinos (ν_{DM5}, ν_{DM6}, ν_{DM7}, ν_{DM8}, and ν_{DM9}), and the BDM Higgs boson. In each mass dimensional orbital, the spontaneous symmetry breaking involved U(1)_{L} × U(1)_{R} → U(1)_{L}. The exception is ν_{L9} which was massive because ν_{L9} was a part of the massive BDM Higgs boson.

The seven mass dimensional orbitals are arranged as F_{5} B_{5} F_{6} B_{6} F_{7} B_{7} F_{8} B_{8} F_{9} B_{9} F_{10} B_{10} F_{11} B_{11}, where F_{d} and B_{d} are mass dimensional fermion and mass dimensional boson, respectively. As described in the previous papers [10] [11] , the masses of massive dark matter neutrinos are related to each other with three simple formulae as the follows.

${M}_{\text{d},B}={M}_{\text{d,}F}/{\alpha}_{\text{d}}$ (1)

Figure 1. Baryonic matter neutrinos and dark matter neutrinos on the principal mass dimensional orbitals where d = principal mass dimensional orbital numbers from d = 5 to d = 11.

${M}_{\text{d}+\text{1},\text{F}}={M}_{\text{d},B}/{\alpha}_{\text{d}+\text{1}}$ (2)

${M}_{\text{d}+\text{1,B}}={M}_{\text{d},B}/{\alpha}_{\text{d}+\text{1}}^{2}$ , (3)

where d is the mass dimensional orbital number, F is fermion, and B is boson. Each dimension has its own α_{d}, and all α_{d}’s except α_{7} (α_{w}) of the seventh dimension (weak interaction) are equal to α, the fine structure constant of electromagnetism. The given observed masses are the mass of electron for F_{6} and the mass of Z boson for B_{7}. From Equations (1) and (3), α_{w} = α_{7} = α of week interaction = (M_{B}_{6/}M_{B}_{7})^{1/2} = (M_{F}_{6}/α/M_{B}_{7})^{1/2} = (M_{e}/α/M_{Z})^{1}^{/2} = 0.02771. Therefore, the masses of dark matter neutrinos are as in Table 1.

3. The Addition of U(1), the Standard Model Spontaneous Symmetry Breaking, and the Upward-Going ANITA Events

In the second step in the formation of the periodic table of elementary particles, electromagnetism as massless U(1)_{EM} was added to ν_{L6} to become election which formed massless SU(2)_{L} × U(1)_{Y} with baryonic matter neutrino, and then the standard model spontaneous symmetry breaking involved SU(2)_{L} × U(1)_{Y} → U(1)_{EM} through the Higgs mechanism to produce massive electron-massless photon, massless neutrino-massive weak bosons, and the standard model Higgs boson as in Figure 2 and Table 2.

The standard model spontaneous symmetry breaking generated the observed stable baryonic leptons (electron and left-handed neutrinos) which follow the standard model (SM) where electron neutrino, muon neutrino, and tau neutrino are massless. The extended standard model (ESM) includes an additional neutrino

${{\nu}^{\prime}}_{\tau}{\stackrel{\xaf}{\nu}}_{\text{DM9}}$ with the mass of 4.7 × 10^{17} eV = 0.47 EeV as in Table 2.

The BDM Higgs boson as the composite of high-mass neutrinos is a decay product of the UHE pion and neutron from the UHE interaction with the cosmic microwave background [16] [17] which is p + γ_{CMB} → p (or n) + n π, p + γ_{CMB} → Δ^{+} (1232) → p + π^{0} (or n + π^{+}) where n is the total number of the produced π’s. Other than gravity, sterile dark matter does not undergo any interaction with baryonic matter. Meanwhile, dark matter is incompatible to dense baryonic matter [9] , because the incompatibility explains the failure to detect dark matter by the contact (interaction) between dark matter and baryonic matter on the Earth. As the composite of the high-mass tau neutrino
${{\nu}^{\prime}}_{\tau}$ and the high-mass dark matter neutrino ν_{DM9}, the BDM Higgs boson is both baryonic matter and dark matter. Because of the inactivity (other than gravity) between dark matter and dense baryonic matter, the dark matter in the BDM Higgs boson allows the BDM Higgs boson to be stable and inactive in space, air, water, and ice. However, during the passage through the high-density part of the Earth, because of the the inactivity (other than gravity) and the incompatibility between dark matter and dense baryonic matter, the BDM boson is transformed into the oscillating BDM Higgs boson between the composite the high-mass tau neutrino and the high-mass dark matter neutrino and the composite the high-mass tau neutrino and the low-mass dark matter neutrino to maintain stability (inactivity) with the maximum dark matter (the high-mass dark matter neutrino) and to minimize incompatibility with the minimum dark matter (the low-mass dark matter neutrino). Near the end of the passage through the Earth, the low-density water-ice layer of the Earth allows incompatible dark matter in the oscillating BDM Higgs boson to escape, so the BDM Higgs boson decays into the high-mass tau neutrino with the extra energy and the incompatible low-mass dark matter neutrino ͞
${\stackrel{\xaf}{\nu}}_{\text{DM5}}$ (27 eV) which is easier to escape from the oscillating BDM Higgs boson than the high-mass dark matter neutrino ͞
${\stackrel{\xaf}{\nu}}_{\text{DM9}}$ . Free incompatible low-mass dark matter neutrino ͞
${\stackrel{\xaf}{\nu}}_{\text{DM5}}$ avoids dense baryonic matter, such as the detector. The high-mass tau neutrino is converted into ultra-high-energy tau neutrino which decays into tau lepton through the charged-current interactions, and tau lepton emerges from the surface of ice as follows.

$\begin{array}{l}{H}_{\text{BDM}}={{\nu}^{\prime}}_{\tau}{\stackrel{\xaf}{\nu}}_{DM9}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\text{in space},\text{air},\text{water and ice}\\ \stackrel{\text{transformation in the high-density part of the Earth}}{\to}\\ \text{oscillating}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}{H}_{\text{BDM}}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\text{between}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}{{\nu}^{\prime}}_{\tau}{\stackrel{\xaf}{\nu}}_{DM9}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\text{and}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}{{\nu}^{\prime}}_{\tau}{\stackrel{\xaf}{\nu}}_{DM5}\\ \stackrel{\text{decay in the water-ice layer}}{\to}{{\nu}^{\prime}}_{\tau}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\text{with the extra energy}+{\stackrel{\xaf}{\nu}}_{DM5}\left(27\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\text{eV}\right)\end{array}$ (4)

$\begin{array}{l}{{\nu}^{\prime}}_{\tau}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\text{with the extra energy}\stackrel{\text{conversion}}{\to}\text{ultra-high-energy}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}{\nu}_{\tau}\\ \stackrel{\text{charged-current interaction}}{\to}\tau ,\end{array}$ (5)

where H_{BDM} is the BDM Higgs boson. The decay products of tau lepton were detected by the ANITA. The calculated mass (Table 2) for the high-mass tau neutrino with the extra energy is 0.47 EeV in the good agreement with the observed 0.6 and 0.56 EeV [2] [3] .

4. The Periodic Table of Elementary Particles for Baryonic Matter and Dark Matter and the Cosmic Rays

In the ESM to include baryonic matter, dark matter, and gravity, the periodic table of elementary particles for baryonic matter, dark matter, and gravity is based on the seven principal mass dimensional orbitals for stable baryonic matter leptons (electron and left-handed neutrinos), gauge bosons, gravity, and dark matter and the seven auxiliary mass dimensional orbitals for unstable leptons (muon and tau) and quarks [10] [11] as in Figure 3 and in Table 3.

The masses of unstable leptons and quarks (d = 7 and 8) on the auxiliary mass dimensional orbitals are derived from the masses of electron (F_{6}), B_{6}, and B_{7} [12] , so the masses on the auxiliary mass dimensional orbitals are derived from the masses on the principal mass dimensional orbitals. Fractional charge quarks are on the auxiliary mass dimensional orbitals, and have SU(3)_{c} to force the fractional charge quarks to form integral charge composites of quarks [12] [18] . No isolated free fractional charge quark is allowed. The force is the strong force. The periodic table of elementary particles contains three generations of leptons (e/ν_{e}, μ/ν_{μ}, and τ/ν_{τ}) and quarks (u/d, s/c, and b/t), five dark matter leptons (ν_{DM5}, ν_{DM6},

ν_{DM7}, ν_{DM8}, and ν_{DM9}), six gauge bosons, and gravity. The standard model Higgs boson is the composite of the extra-muon μ' and anti-extra muon
$\stackrel{\xaf}{{\mu}^{\prime}}$ in Table 3 [12] [19] . As the parts of the standard model Higgs boson and the BDM Higgs boson, the two baryonic leptons
${{\mu}^{\prime}}_{0}$ and
${{\nu}^{\prime}}_{\tau}$ , respectively, are outside of the three generations of leptons and quarks.

The periodic table of elementary particles calculates accurately the particle masses of all leptons, quarks, gauge bosons, the Higgs boson, and the cosmic rays by using only five known constants: the number (seven) of the extra spatial dimensions in the eleven-dimensional membrane, the mass of electron, the masses of Z and W bosons, and the fine structure constant [12] [13] . The calculated masses are in excellent agreements with the observed masses. For examples, the calculated masses of muon, top quark, pion, neutron, and the standard model Higgs boson are 105.55 MeV, 175.4 GeV, 139.54 MeV, 939.43 MeV, and 126 GeV, respectively, in excellent agreements with the observed 105.65 MeV, 172.4 GeV, 139.57 MeV, 939.27 MeV, and 126 GeV, respectively. The calculated mass of B_{11} in Table 3 is 1.13 × 10^{19} GeV in good agreement with the Planck mass 1.22 × 10^{19} GeV for gravity.

The periodic table of elementary particles calculates accurately the values of the UHE baryonic matter downward-pointing cosmic rays in terms of the knees-ankles-toe as described in the previous paper [13] . The energy spectrum from 10^{9} eV to 10^{20} eV appears to follow a single power law except few breaks at the knees-ankles-toe [20] . The power index increases at the first knee and the second knee, and decreases at the ankle. Above 4 × 10^{19} eV, the power index increases as the “toe” as the last power index increase below the GZK limit (5 × 10^{19} eV) as the upper limit of the cosmic rays [16] [17] . The fine structure of the cosmic ray spectrum [21] shows that an ankle with decrease in power index is in between the first knee and the second knee, resulting in two knees, two ankles, and one toe. In the periodic table, some high-mass dimensional fermions (F_{d} where d = mass dimensional orbital number from 5 to 11) and bosons (B_{d}) are involved in the knees-ankles-toe. At the knees and the toe, some parts of the energies from the energy sources of cosmic rays are spent to generate F_{d} and B_{d}, resulting in the increase of power index. The ankles are the the middle points (midpoints) between the adjacent dimensional fermions and bosons. At a midpoint, the energy is too high to keep the thermally unstable high-mass dimensional particle, resulting in the decay and the decrease of power index. The midpoint is expressed as follows.

${M}_{\text{midpoint}}=\mathrm{exp}\left(\left(\mathrm{ln}\left({M}_{\text{adjacentdimensionalferion}}\right)+\mathrm{ln}\left({M}_{\text{adjacentdimensionalboson}}\right)\right)/2\right)$ (6)

The calculations of the the knees-ankles-toe are in Table 4. The calculated masses of B_{8}, the midpoint, F_{9} (=ν’_{τ)}, the midpoint, and B_{9}, are 1.7 × 10^{15}, 2 × 10^{16}, 2.4 × 10^{17}, 2.8 × 10^{18}, and 3.2 × 10^{19} eV, respectively, which are in good agreement with observed 3 × 10^{15}, 2 × 10^{16}, 3 × 10^{17}, 3 × 10^{18}, and 4 × 10^{19} eV for the first knee, the first ankle, the second knee, the second ankle, and the toe, respectively as in Table 4. The observed second knee is for the formation of F_{9} which is the high-mass tau neutrino
${{\nu}^{\prime}}_{\tau}$ corresponding to the observed high-mass tau neutrino without the extra energy in the upward-going ANITA events.

5. Summary

This paper posits that the upward-going ANITA events are derived from the cosmic ray of the baryonic-dark matter (BDM) Higgs boson that survives the passage through the Earth. In the extended standard model (ESM) for baryonic matter and dark matter, the spontaneous symmetry breaking through the Higgs mechanism for the symmetrical massless baryonic matter left-handed neutrinos and massless dark matter right-handed neutrinos produced massless baryonic matter left-handed neutrinos, sterile massive dark matter neutrinos, and the BDM Higgs boson. (Dark matter particles are the massive neutrinos.) This paper proposes the BDM Higgs boson is the composite high-mass tau neutrino and the high-mass dark matter neutrino. Other than gravity, sterile dark matter does not undergo any interaction with baryonic matter. Meanwhile, dark matter is incompatible to dense baryonic matter, because the incompatibility explains the failure to detect dark matter by the contact (interaction) between dark matter and

baryonic matter on the Earth. The BDM Higgs boson is both baryonic matter and dark matter. The inactive dark matter in the BDM Higgs boson allows the BDM Higgs boson to be stable (inactive) in space, air, water, and ice. However, during the passage through the high-density part of the Earth, because of the inactivity (other than gravity) and incompatibility between dark matter and dense baryonic matter, the BDM Higgs boson is transformed into the oscillating BDM Higgs boson between the composite of the high-mass tau neutrino and the high-mass dark matter neutrino and the composite of the high-mass tau neutrino and the low-mass dark matter neutrino to maintain stability (inactivity) with the maximum dark matter and to minimize incompatibility with the minimum dark matter. Near the end of the passage through the Earth, the low-density water-ice layer of the Earth allows the dark matter in the oscillating BDM Higgs boson to escape, so the oscillating BDM Higgs boson decays into the high-mass tau neutrino with the extra energy and the incompatible low-mass dark matter neutrino (27 eV) which is easier to escape than the high-mass dark matter neutrino. The high-mass tau neutrino is converted into ultra-high-energy tau neutrino which decays into tau lepton through the charged-current interactions, and tau lepton emerges from the surface of ice. Based on the periodic table of elementary particles, the calculated mass for the high-mass tau neutrino with the extra energy is 0.47 EeV in the good agreement with the observed 0.6 and 0.56 EeV. The decay products of tau lepton were detected by the ANITA.

In the periodic table of elementary particles, the seven extra spacetime dimensions in the 11-spacetime dimensional membrane in M-theory are in the form of the seven mass dimensional orbitals for all internal symmetries. The periodic table of elementary particles for baryonic matter, dark matter, and gravity is based on the seven principal mass dimensional orbitals for stable baryonic matter leptons (electron and left-handed neutrinos), gauge bosons, gravity, and dark matter and the seven auxiliary mass dimensional orbitals for unstable leptons (muon and tau) and quarks. The last principal mass dimensional orbital is for gravity.

The formation of the periodic table of elementary particles involves the three steps. The first step is the BDM spontaneous symmetry breaking through the Higgs mechanism for the symmetrical five massless baryonic matter left-handed neutrinos and five massless dark matter right-handed neutrinos on the principal mass dimensional orbitals to produce massless baryonic matter left-handed neutrinos, massive dark matter neutrinos, and the massive BDM Higgs boson. The second step is the addition of electromagnetism as U(1) and the standard model spontaneous symmetry breaking (SU(2)_{L} × U(1)_{Y} → U(1)_{EM}) through the Higgs mechanism to produce massless neutrinos-massive weak bosons, massive electron-massless photon, and the standard model Higgs boson. The third step is the addition of the seven auxiliary mass dimensional orbitals for unstable leptons (muon and tau) and quarks to form the periodic table of elementary particles.

The periodic table of elementary particles for baryonic matter, dark matter, and gravity calculates accurately the masses of all elementary particles and the cosmic rays by using only five known constants. The periodic table of elementary particles calculates accurately the values of the UHE baryonic matter downward-pointing cosmic rays in terms of the knees-ankles-toe. The calculated value of the second knee is 2.35 × 10^{17} eV in good agreement with 3 × 10^{17} eV for the observed second knee which is for the formation of the high-mass tau neutrino, corresponding to the observed high-mass tau neutrino without the extra energy in the upward-going ANITA events.
