Dark energy is interpreted as the leftover of mostly canceled vacuum energy due to the spontaneous mirror symmetry breaking (SMSB) at the electroweak phase transition. Based on the newly proposed mirror-matter model (M$^3$), the extended standard model with mirror matter (SM$^3$) is elaborated to provide a consistent foundation for understanding dark energy, dark matter, baryogenesis, and many other puzzles. New insights of Higgs, top quark, and lepton masses are presented under SM$^3$ using…

Neutron-mirror neutron oscillations for solving the puzzles of ultrahigh-energy cosmic rays

Based on a newly proposed mirror-matter model of neutron-mirror neutron ($n-n'$) oscillations, the puzzles related to ultrahigh-energy cosmic rays (UHECRs) are explained. In particular, the phenomena

Existence of a mirror world in the Universe is a fundamental way to restore the observed parity violation in weak interactions and provides the lightest mirror nucleon as a unique GeV-scale dark

Natural electroweak breaking from a mirror symmetry.

"twin Higgs models," simple realizations of the Higgs boson as a pseudo Goldstone boson that protect the weak scale from radiative corrections up to scales of order 5-10 TeV, demonstrate that, contrary to the conventional wisdom, stabilizing the weak Scale does not require new light particles charged under the standard model gauge groups.

The cosmological abundance of mirror particles is investigated after a period of chaotic inflation and subsequent reheating and it is found that mirror and ordinary abundances may naturally be similar at the present epoch, and that mirror baryons can provide the closure density without violating nucleosynthesis constraints.
