Physics Beyond the Standard Model: a Reductionistic Approach

Authors: Victor Paromov

The Standard Model (SM) is the most useful theory of elementary particle interactions. Unfortunately, the SM cannot be unified with the theory of general relativity (GR) and has a number of ad hoc parameters. The full unification “beyond the SM” presents an important problem of modern theoretical physics. The SM analysis from the materialistic positions shows a number of fundamental inconsistencies of great philosophical significance. In addition to the long-debated philosophical problems of quantum mechanics, the SM has a problem of the “composite” elementary particles. If elementary, a particle should be stable and “unbreakable”, which is not the case with the five quarks, two leptons, three weak bosons, and the Higg’s particle. In addition, the existence of the neutrino raises questions. Thus, it is logical to expect that a successful unification concept will support the reduction of the SM elementary set. Surprisingly, no unification theory so far can support such a reduction, on the contrary, all the mainstream unifications including superstring theories tend to replace the SM set with an increased, not decreased number of elementary components. The modified Einsteinian concept of curved spacetime, the General Principe of Interaction (GPI) proposed recently along with the Fractal spacetime concept (FSC) does support the proposed reduction. The GPI-based unification allows, in general, the understanding of all the four types of interaction with the spacetime geometry. However, the quantum field descriptions of the particle interactions required by the compact extradimensional geometry are in principle incompatible with the classic field descriptions of the gravitation required by the “normal” geometry. Thus, neither a GPI-based theory nor any other theory can bring a full unification within a single theoretical framework. Nevertheless, the GPI-based description of particle interactions will be indispensable for solving the number of important philosophical problems of quantum physics.
