Summary
Attempt at summary of what our universe is made of (based on Quantum field theory)
As a newbie, I'd welcome your input into this summary of mine. I want to establish some firm foundations (or as firm as possible). Seems like a good way of learning the basics...

Our universe consists of fields and nothing else, i.e. quantum fields and the spacetime field (gravity).
All fields interact with each other.
Particles are energised states (or quanta) in the field.

Quantum fields are:
- fermion fields: quark, electron and neutrino fields. These fields produce matter.
and
- boson fields: strong (gluon), electromagnetic (photon), weak (Z,W), higgs (H particle). These fields produce force.

In the above summary, what is disputed, wrong or missing?
Thanks, Ivan

When it comes to particles, I think you would be better off thinking along these line; IMO.
