    I heard it suggested that the casmir effect could be related to a 5th fundamental force. I thought it was interesting, but can't explain my reasoning to thinking it was. Why couldn't it be? I almost stutter. Input?

    Well, I don't think it could really be considered a "fundemental force", because it is an application of another force, ellectromagnetic radiation.
