Baryons are described by a Hamiltonian on an intrinsic U(3) Lie group configuration space with electroweak degrees of freedom originating in specific Bloch wave factors. By opening the Bloch degrees of freedom pairwise via a U(2) Higgs mechanism, the strong and electroweak energy scales become related to yield the Higgs mass 125.085+/-0.017 GeV and the usual gauge boson masses. From the same Hamiltonian we derive both the relative neutron to proton mass ratio and the N and Delta mass spectra. All compare rather well with the experimental values. We predict neutral flavour baryon singlets to be sought for in negative pions scattering on protons or in photoproduction on neutrons and in invariant mass like Σ+c(2455)D- from various decays above the open charm threshold, e.g. at 4499, 4652 and 4723 MeV. The fundamental predictions are based on just one length scale and the fine structure coupling. The interpretation is to consider baryons as entire entities kinematically excited from laboratory space by three impact momentum generators, three rotation generators and three Runge-Lenz generators to internalize as nine degrees of freedom covering colour, spin and flavour. Quark and gluon fields come about when the intrinsic structure is projected back into laboratory space depending on which exterior derivative one is taking. With such derivatives on the measurescaled wavefunction, we derived approximate parton distribution functions for the u and d valence quarks of the proton that compare well with established experimental analysis.
