I will discuss many of the exciting possibilities for learning qualitative lessons about our universe through measuring the properties of the Higgs at the LHC and future colliders. I will focus in particular on the interplay of BSM flavor physics and the Higgs, through a framework called Spontaneous Flavor Violation (SFV).  SFV has many implications for Higgs flavor measurements and di-Higgs production/triple Higgs coupling measurements.  Additionally I will discuss how SFV can generate numerous BSM experimental possibilities at the LHC and beyond.
