So there is a theory out there that seems to model the "four" fundamental forces based upon a higgs-like particle, which the author calls k-particles. He seems to believe that these particles act upon electrons, protons, fermions, etc. to produce forces by the means of k-particle density. It's called forces by proxy and it's published online [crackpot link deleted] I was wondering what criticisms people would have for this theory. I'll be honest and say that this is a theory more appealing than string theory.
