Dominion Lede

I have a number of not well worked out presentiments about Modern physics which I can draft out here. en:Beyond the Standard Model was pretty much a stub at the point it was cloned here. Some of the presentiments:

  1. en:General Relativity and the concept of spacetime generally. It seems to me that saying that space or space time have a non-Euclidean geometry is while true and an advance over the previous situation. vacuous. Space and spacetime are both ideas, perceptions physical realities. This theory seems to be to be noting more than a mathematical advance not an an advance in physics per se.
  2. en:Quark Confinement similar situation. Underlying these is the question: what does it mean for a thing to exist as a physical object? I would say it must first of all be a thing not a nothing, i.e. it must be matter or energy. Unlike space-time quarks may be assumed to be real objects. At this point I haven't been able to understand that they are and therefore suspect they aren't.

Overview

In physics, the Standard Model of particle physics is currently the best description of all experimental data.[1] Nevertheless, there are reasons to think that there are phenomena that are not accurately described by this theory and "Beyond the Standard Model" physics studies possible extensions to the Standard Model that will be probed in up-coming experiments.

There are several areas where "Beyond the Standard Model" physics focuses:

In addition to these subjects, there are also attempts at relating different phenomena and parameters to a more fundamental theory. A partial classification of these attempts are
