    when stuff gets really cold like below 4 Kelvin , it can become an Einstein-Bose condensate

    Yes, I've seen "superfluid" described as another state of matter.

    Please type words properly; you are not "texting".

    Try http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Superfluid" [Broken]. Notice in the first sentence it links to "phases of matter", which is what we are talking about as "states".
