Instead, there are 3 fundamental particles, the positive quantum, the negative quantum and the neutral quantum. And there is one force, the attraction or repulsion of positive and negative. That’s all we need.
Or is Nature simple?
The Aether
The Occam's razor principle tells us that, of two explanations that account for all the facts, the simpler one is more likely to be correct.
. . . maybe we should ask:
Is Nature really, really complicated . . . ?
So, with just one force driving everything in the universe, it’s critical to understand how that force works. But first, let’s establish the basics
Introduction
So, after considering the prevailing establishment theory which tells us that there are four fundamental forces, electromagnetic, strong, weak and gravity, and that, according to the Standard Model of particle physics, there are: Six "flavors" of quarks: up, down, strange, charm, bottom and top; Six types of leptons: electron, electron neutrino, muon, muon neutrino, tau, tau neutrino; Twelve gauge bosons (force carriers): the photon of electromagnetism, the three W and Z bosons of the weak force, and the eight gluons of the strong force; And the Higgs boson . . .
