The Higgs is here to stay - and afterwards?

I was to skeptical. The Higgs exists. The new data shown at the Moriond conference is convincing.

Now the exciting question arises: Is there anything beyond the standard model? Theorists claim: yes! Experimentalists have not found anything yet.

If there is nothing left, it would mean that we know everything. Of course, we still do not know the origin of the parameters. But if we knew that, we would know everything about the world. Everything? The same claim was made over a century ago; and it was wrong. Is anything different today? We should know more in a few years.
