I used the 4 natural forces model in my 📚recent book as an analogy for the 4 forces of humanity.
And then I read that 🔗 Fermilab has found a discrepancy with the mass of the W boson.
“The current 'standard model' of particle physics describes four fundamental forces. Three of those — electromagnetism, gravity and the strong nuclear force — push or pull things, broadly speaking. The fourth force — the weak nuclear force — doesn't really push or pull anything. Instead it makes one type of particle transform into another type of particle. In doing so we get the force responsible for radiation, and it's the force that drives nuclear fusion in the sun. So it's quite important.”
I’ll say it’s important. Now I will have to revisit some of the thinking in the book!
