Is There A Fifth Force In Physics?

We recognize a vast deal in regards to the distinct forces that manage our Universe - there's gravity, electromagnetism, the stable nuclear pressure (which binds the atomic nucleus together) and the weak nuclear pressure (responsible for radioactivity). Are they jointly satisfactory to clarify life, the Universe and everything - highly life?

Coming to phrases with (for loss of a higher phrase) a fifth force, name it a 'life-force', I would ought to superficially agree that assuming the present 4 forces (and their associated particles) usually are not sufficient to thoroughly clarify life, evolution, the mind, memory, sleep and dreams, musical creativity (be it chook songs, whale songs, or human songs), a feel of self, intelligence/intellect, morality, emotions, curiosity, and all these special bits and items we accomplice with dwelling things, then we may perhaps certainly ought to postulate yet one other pressure - a 'life-force'.

In special words, is there a fifth pressure wanted or required to bridge the hole between non-life and life? Finding one other pressure within the Universe is not all that unprecedented - I imply we did not recognize in regards to the nuclear forces till the (roughly) third decade of the final century, so much lower than a hundred years ago.

Many cultures have or recently assume there's a 'life-force', a few form of mystical energy pressure or unspecified bio-energy fields, this is required to breathe life into otherwise inanimate objects, items otherwise composed of the similar kinds of chemicals that make up rocks and things. It tends to be a extremely New Age or Eastern (Asian) philosophy. However, believing in a fifth force, a 'life-force', and proving it are NULL completely special things. Biologists, biochemists, etc. have not precisely rushed to replace their textbooks with a chapter on a 'life-force' that underpins their domain of study.

But if there's a few form of 'life force', then probably it lastly should be detected and measured. There would also ought to be a few form of 'life force' particle - all of the special popular forces have associated debris (electromagnetic forces have the photon particle; gravity has the theoretical graviton; the stable nuclear pressure has gluons). Of course, such a pressure particle might have homes which might be past our technology to observe - up to now anyway. By analogy, there are plenty of huge debris theoretically postulated to exist by particle physicists. Those ultra-massive debris are theoretically anticipated by means of the idea of super-symmetry (SUSY). But, even when SUSY is correct, our atom smashes or particle accelerators do not yet have the required energies to provide them and hence examine the SUSY particle theory.

Unfortunately, I've yet to come throughout any scientist, say a physicist or a cosmologist that speculates on there being yet one other unknown bodily pressure within the universe (as antagonistic to a 'life-force', which obviously would also ought to be a bodily force, a bodily assets of the Universe). Finding a Theory of Everything (TOE), the Holy Grail of physics that unites the present forces as separate manifestations or part transitions of 1 greatest force, is proving difficult sufficient with merely 4 forces to deal with. A fifth pressure would absolutely positioned the cat amongst the pigeons! You'd want to wonder would this hypothetical fifth pressure function over lengthy distances (like gravity and electromagnetism), or tiny distances (like the NULL nuclear forces). What may perhaps be the homes of any associated particle(s)? My wisdom and expertise usually are not satisfactory to determine all that out, but maybe there are these who would possibly want to run with the idea.

Okay, an elusive and theoretical 'life-force' aside, following a few speculation at the nature of 'dark energy', that pressure which is causing the expansion fee of the Universe to accelerate, I strongly suspect that 'dark energy' implies the existence of a fifth pressure in our Universe. Recall that the 4 recognized forces are 1) gravity; 2) electromagnetism; 3) the stable nuclear, and 4) the weak nuclear. The stable and weak nuclear forces function on a lot too quick a distance scale (atomic lengths) for both to account for 'dark energy'. "Dark energy' operates over big scale distances. 'Dark energy' is unlikely to be electromagnetic in nature - otherwise it would not be 'dark' (photons anyone?). 'Dark energy' may perhaps hardly be resulting from gravity (pull pressure) considering 'dark energy' is antigravity (push pressure). Now the theoretical particle this is assumed to carry the gravitational pressure is referred to as a 'graviton'. Perhaps there's such a factor as an anti-graviton particle, but then we have not even trapped a graviton yet - it is nonetheless a beastie within the crypto-zoology realm of theoretical particle physics, so an anti-graviton is heaping speculation on one other speculation. Anyway, if one assumes that none of the recognized forces thoroughly debts for the nature of 'dark energy'; then the unification of physics, the Holy Grail 'Theory of Everything' has gotten close to infinitely additional complicated! All of this sounds like a nice aspect for observational cosmologists and theoretical particle physicists to have a severe chinwag over a couple of rounds of drinks to come to phrases (if possible) with the elusive parts - additional varieties of forces and the associated topic comparable debris that carry these forces.
