doubt about quantum field theory

Fields are the fundamental principles in QFT but you can start with a Lagrangian who describes a certain model and say "cool, those are the fields that exist physically". But then you can write another Lagrangian, maybe even contain the same fields, which describes the same physics. One of the most radical examples is 1 + 1D bosonization. You start with a theory that contains only fermions and ends with a theory containing only bosons. Totally equivalent to each other. Out of a bosonization is just a 2D trick. And the models of bosonization in more dimensions are punctual models. In 2D you can always do. In extra dimensions depends on the symmetry of the fields and the model itself. We have a model toy and through a transformation you change from bosons to fermions. Does not proceed ... it's all toy model. You can not know what is most fundamental. Or original. The question of bosonization also relates to integrability. There are 2D models that are integrable. That is, it is not possible to distinguish what is most fundamental. How is this possible if the fields are fundamental?

How can you get half-spin elementary stable particles starting from full-integer elementary stable particles?

If you could split particle to two new particles, they were not elementary/fundamental particles in the first place..

Well, you should start from what is reality, what can be observed by naked eye:

 

 

 

 

If you start from composite-boson unstable isotope, which must have full-integer spin,

it will decay be emitting gamma photon, to decrease spin by 1 unit.

Trying to get to its ground state.

 

f.e. U-238, has 92 protons and 146 neutrons, so it's composite-boson, with full-integer spin (0),

it's decaying to Th-234, also composite boson (spin 0),

or by double beta decay minus, also to composite boson Pu-238 (spin 0)..

So they don't need to emit any additional gamma photons.
