We study the duality between the Higgs model with the non-perturbative gauge/gravity duality and the deterministic quantum theory. We show that the Higgs model is in fact a deterministic quantum theory with a phase separation symmetry. We also demonstrate that the duality between the deterministic quantum theory and the Higgs model is broken in the presence of a non-zero gauge/gravity coupling. We discuss how this would apply to the duality between the Higgs model and the non-perturbative gauge/gravity duality. We therefore conclude that the Higgs model is not a deterministic quantum theory with a phase separation symmetry. We also point out that the Higgs model is a deterministic quantum theory with a phase separation symmetry.
