Introduction

Some of what I am about to discuss in this article have been said in this article and probably in another one. But I have decided to write this article so that I can completely present and address my opinion concerning the existence of the weak and the strong forces.

This is an article I have always hoped that I will never write, and this is because it addresses an error in modern physics which I really wish is not there but it is, and this error is about the existence of the weak and the strong forces. And not just the error in the existence of the weak and the strong forces, but also the overall error in the standard model of particle physics.

For decades now, we have failed to unify physics, and there is no doubt that this situation must be as a result of some wrong premises and concepts in our understanding of the universe. So, this article will inform you about the these wrong premises that further complicated the unification problem such that we couldn’t unify physics until the coming of post-modern physics. 

The Standard Model and the Four Forces

In physics and in the standard model, it is generally accepted that there are four fundamental forces in the universe, which are: the electromagnetic force, the gravitational force, the weak force and the strong force.

The electromagnetic force and the gravitational force are forces that act in domains outside the nucleus of the atom, while the weak and the strong forces are forces that act inside the nucleus, and that is why they are referred to as nuclear forces. Also, all of these four forces are said to be infinite in range.

Now, defining the four forces according to the standard model:

Force 1: The electromagnetic force is the force that acts between charged particles like an electron and a proton.

Force 2: The gravitational force is the force that acts between heavenly bodies like the planets revolving around the Sun.

Force 3: The weak force is responsible for the interaction between the nucleus of the atom and the emitted electrons during beta decay.

Force 4: The strong force is the force responsible for the interaction between the protons and the neutrons in the nucleus of the atom. 

So, it is proposed that a unified field theory should unify “the four fundamental forces” in the universe and show us how they emerge from a single encompassing force. This is the common expectation that the unified field theory or the theory of quantum gravity should satisfy.

However, physicists have been able to unify three of the four fundamental forces which are the electromagnetic force, the weak force and the strong force, but the gravitational force or the force of gravity has not been successfully unified with the other three forces.

In modern physics, the three unified forces are unified under the already mentioned conceptual framework referred to as the “Standard Model” of particle physics.

Now, let’s ask ourselves, how was the standard model able to unify three of the four fundamental forces? The standard model was able to unify three of the four fundamental forces by informing us that particles interact by the exchange of “virtual particles” such as protons, gluons etc.

However, this traditional procedure in the standard model has not been successfully applied to gravity. The graviton is the particle that has been proposed to mediate the gravitational interaction but so far no evidence of the graviton has been found.

“According to the standard model and the findings of particle physics”, there are evidence for other virtual particles except for the graviton. So, the standard model which unifies the three fundamental forces can be said to be true. But is this really the case? Is the standard model correct about the existence of virtual particles and of four fundamental forces in the universe?

These questions are what I want to resolve for you in this article following the results that have emerged from the unified field theory. The unified field theory is fundamentally different from the standard model and how it is different from the standard model is what I want to discuss in the next section.

How “The Theory of the Universe” Is Different

Now, physics has accomplished the theory of everything which I title “The Theory of the Universe, and this theory is fundamentally different from the standard model in two ways. The first which I will like to discuss next is in the absence of virtual particles.

The Absence of Virtual Particles

In The Theory of the Universe, the concept of particle interactions mediated by “virtual particles” do not exist, rather there is an informed explanation of how the two non-mechanical waves in the universe govern particle interactions based on a new and absolute understanding of the nature of force, momentum and energy.

Virtual particles like the photons, gluons and gravitons that have been proposed to be responsible for particle interactions do not exist in the theory of everything because of the discovery of the two non-mechanical waves in the universe! I really want you to grasp this first, so that you can understand what I will inform you soon about the four fundamental forces.

So, the theory of quantum gravity is very simple and different from the standard model of physics. It does not explain particle interactions based on the exchange of virtual particles.

Rather as I have said or implied, The Theory of the Universe recognizes that there are two non-mechanical waves in the universe, which is a discovery not found in the standard model, and it explains particle interactions based on how they are communicated purely by the two non-mechanical waves in the universe.

This important discovery comes with a new understanding of force, momentum and energy which eliminates any need for virtual particles, thus, The Theory of the Universe is a better and more simplified theory than the standard model.

You must understand what has been said in the above two paragraphs as I move to the next sub-section. The above show you why virtual particles are absent in the standard model. 

The Absence of Four Fundamental Forces

Now, it becomes important to ask how The Theory of the Universe unifies the four forces in the universe without the need for virtual particles like the standard model.

Listen: The absence of virtual particles in The Theory of the Universe is associated with a new fact that there are two fundamental forces in the universe and not four. The two fundamental forces are the electromagnetic force and the gravitational force, and the other two forces which are the weak and the strong forces do not exist in the universe.

Just as virtual particles are absent in The Theory of the Universe because of the discovery of the two non-mechanical waves in the universe, now there are two fundamental forces in The Theory of the Universe (and even in the universe) and not four because of the profound discovery that the weak equivalence principle and the strong equivalence principle are equal. This post-modern equivalence principle is referred to as the principle of universal equivalence.

So, the general acceptance in the standard model that there are “four fundamental forces” in the universe is because we did not know about the principle of universal equivalence. For when we realize that the weak equivalence principle and the strong equivalence principle are equal, we will also realize that the weak force and the strong force do not exist.

When we realize that the weak equivalence principle and the strong equivalence principle are equal, we will also realize that the weak force and the strong force do not exist.Click To Tweet

The weak and the strong forces are only said to exist because we did not know that the two equivalence principles distinguished by Albert Einstein in 1915 are equal! The weak and the strong forces are non-existent forces, and we have no need for them in physics.

I have written this article to inform you of these things so that you will understand why I dismiss the existence of virtual particles like photons, gravitons etc. and also the existence of the weak and the strong forces.

I am not dismissing these concepts which are vital aspects of modern physics simply because I want to, and I really wish I don’t have to dismiss or discredit them, but post-modern physics is informing us that these concepts exist in physics because of our incomplete understanding of the universe.

Now, that a complete understanding of the universe has come, we have to put away all the false concepts in physics. So, even with these grave errors, we are still excusable, even as I proceed to further criticise the standard model.

Criticising the Standard Model

The standard model has been our best conceptual framework for describing the universe since it unifies, though falsely, three of the fundamental forces except for gravity. But now, we have a better theory which exposes the loopholes and errors in the standard model.

This theory which is referred to as The Theory of the Universe and which also produces the new conceptual framework of absolute relativity informs us that contrary to the standard model, virtual particles do not exist but two non-mechanical waves do and that there are two fundamental forces in the universe and not four.

So, our prior aim of unifying ‘the four fundamental forces’ was amiss or inappropriate. We should have sought the unification of only two fundamental forces which are the electromagnetic force and the gravitational force. We shouldn’t have left Einstein’s pursuit of the unification of light and gravity. I will discuss this soon.

The non-existence of the weak and the strong forces implies that a huge part of modern physics will have to be removed. This is the sad part of this article, but it also implies that we will eventually simplify physics which is a grand aim in itself. 

To be more explicit, the standard model is wrong. The standard model is not a result of an increase in our understanding of the universe but rather due to an oversight in our understanding of the universe.

We now have to correct physics and do away with the standard model. The method of describing particle interactions based on the exchange of virtual particles and which is the method by which the standard model proposed to have unified three of the fundamental forces except for gravity is wrong.

The truth about particle interactions is different from what the standard model can capture in any way. Whatever misgivings we may have about the standard model are true. The standard model is wrong!

There are no virtual particles involved in particle interactions and there are no four fundamental forces in the universe but two fundamental forces, which are the electromagnetic force and the gravitational force.

We are now having the true understanding of particle interactions based purely on the behaviour of the two non-mechanical waves in the universe and not on the exchange of virtual particles, and we are now having the true understanding of the stability and structure of the atomic nucleus based on the principle of universal equivalence and not on the weak and the strong forces.

(I will discuss the post-modern structure of the atom in a future article. But for now, I want you to know that this post-modern structure of the atom is based on the post-modern principle of universal equivalence and the post-modern theory of electromagnetism and not on any classical or modern principle.)

The realization of this great truth brings us back to the significance of Einstein’s lonely struggle to unify physics many years ago. This is because even though Einstein failed in the quest to unify physics, he was however right in the aim of unifying just two forces which are the electromagnetic force and the gravitational force.

After our discovery of the standard model which proposes four fundamental forces in the universe, many of us would have thought that Einstein was wrong in his pursuit of the unification of only the electromagnetic force and the gravitational force neglecting the weak force and the strong force.

This is surprisingly not the case. Einstein was right in the aim of his pursuit but his method was wrong, which is why he failed to accomplish the unification of the two fundamental forces.

Post-modern physics has now come to complete Einstein’s dream, and how it completes Einstein’s dream is what I want to discuss in the next section. 

The Completion of Einstein’s Dream!

Just as post-modern physics refutes the standard model with the two arguments of the existence of two non-mechanical waves in the universe and the principle of universal equivalence, so also does post-modern physics refute Einstein’s theory of general relativity.

The conceptual framework of general relativity which Einstein deployed in his attempt to unify the two fundamental forces is as wrong as the standard model. This is why both theories have failed to assist us unify physics.

Einstein’s dream is now being completed by the remarkable realization that his two equivalence principles, the weak equivalence principle and the strong equivalence principle, are equal.

As I have said, it is by the unity of Einstein’s two equivalence principles that we realize that the weak and the strong forces do not exist.

So, we are left to unify only the electromagnetic force and the gravitational force and this is what has been simply done by the realization that there are two non-mechanical waves in the universe.

The second non-mechanical wave referred to as the gravi-electromagnetic wave is a composite wave consisting of light and gravity and it is the wave that produces the gravi-electromagnetic force which is the long-sought unified representation of the electromagnetic force and the gravitational force.

Post-modern physics is giving us the true understanding of the unity of light and gravity beyond what classical and modern physics would have made possible. 

General relativity failed Einstein just as the standard model has failed us, and post-modern physics informs us that this is due to a common oversight by Einstein and us. We were just as wrong as Einstein was but never as right as he was in pursuing the unification of the two fundamental forces in the universe and not four.

(This is why post-modern physics is so simple and profound. A huge part of modern physics, like general relativity and the standard model, do not find their way into post-modern physics, only the absolute description of the principles of relativity referred to as absolute relativity and which is sufficient for the description of the whole universe is found in post-modern physics.)

So, post-modern physics completes Einstein’s dream that is based on the unification of the two fundamental forces and not ours that is based on the standard model and ‘the four fundamental forces’.

Summary

This article informs you that according to post-modern physics there are two fundamental forces in the universe and not four as we have thought in the standard model.

Post-modern physics now informs us that the exchange of virtual particles is not responsible for the interaction of particles and that the weak and the strong forces do not exist because of the equality of the weak and the strong equivalence principles.

So, particle interactions are now based purely on the communicated effects of the two non-mechanical waves in the universe and not on the exchange of virtual particles and the understanding of the atomic nucleus is now based on the principle of universal equivalence and not on the weak and the strong forces.

Until next time,

I will be here.
