A new interpretation of the proton-neutron mass difference has been given independently by Pagels  and Fried and Truong . In this note, it is shown that, if this model works, it implies a ghost scalar meson with T=1 and G=-1. Use is made of the technique of spontaneous symmetry-breaking theory . By identifying the ghost with that of the Regge-pole model, one can crudely estimate the magnitude of the feedback by means of a linear extrapolation.
