(2) Strong - gluons

(3) Weak - weak bosons

(4) Gravitational - gravitons

(5) Higgs - higgs bosons

We have unification under SM, called QFT. But how far that unification really goes?! Is it "only" a mathematical form of calculating all fields on the same procedure?

I am asking because we know that those fields are (quantum view) totaly different, we might say they have nothing in common. Different particles have different properties...

Can we talk about additional force -> Higgs force !? I think so. I guess nobody mention it, because particle has not been discovered yet (we hope on LHC 2008), but hey - nobody saw graviton either... ?!

Next interesting thing are fields itself. Let me just ask for starters if my view if correct. (i will start reading QFT shortly, but not just yet...).

In QFT perspective we can describe every field as static or dynamic. For example:

- static EM field: electric field is produced by still charge, it emits virtual photons

- dynamic EM field: EM field is produced by acceleration of charge, it emits real photons

- static gravity field: curved space-time is condition of still mass, it emits virtual gravitons

- dynamic gravity field: space-time disturbance motion is produced by acceleration of mass, it emits real gravitons

...

and analogous for every field! Is that view correct? I see certain beauty about it...
