Forces By Proxy

  1. Dec 27, 2009 #1
    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

    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.

    1) It's crackpottery. (Please note PF rules do not permit the discussion of crackpottery)

    2) It's not even original crackpottery. The theory was first proposed in 1690.
