The realisation that the great diversity of the world stems from a handful of newbielink:http://www.thenakedscientists.com [nonactive] acting under the influence of a few fundamental forces was one of the triumphs of twentieth century physics.

It was a shame they couldn't have stopped with just the three. Life would have been so much simpler.

Even better still if they could all be reduced to different configurations of single particle and force types - lol.
...And its claws are as big as cups, and for some reason it's got a tremendous fear of stamps! And Mrs Doyle was telling me it's got magnets on its tail, so if you're made out of metal it can attach itself to you! And instead of a mouth it's got four arses!

Even strings are thought to be of 2 types - open & closed.

how about just one: energy at it's most fundamental existence, manifesting itself beyond the ground state as a multiple, as more of itself packed into the next level where it manifests itself as a "particle", massless for the first range of "particles" and scaling up to that 'density' where mass becomes manifest. And from thereon>>>all the stuff we are and is.
Just a thought, finding all them different particle types and the behaviours and interactions-or not-hard to interpret as unique entities. All part of the same beginning stuff makes more sense, at least to my simple mind

How about a continuation, namely thongs?
Open and closed of course.
I will take up the torch...
And go where no other (except you and you and....Ah well..) have gone.

Sort of:)
Or will my idea backfire on me?

Now, would that be c?
Or as I like to put it, 'c'torh?

It's truly a amalgam of ideas.
Even though they're not dental
More mental:)
