WTF? This doesn't even make sense! 08:29, 5 November 2007 (EST)

It does to me, but I wrote it, so I'm probably not qualified to comment. SusanYou don't have to talk, but ... 09:03, 5 November 2007 (EST)

Theory of everything --> Theory of Everything? Just wondering. :P NorsemanWassail! 10:42, 5 November 2007 (EST)

Only caring about the uniting the four fundamental forces into a unified theory? Isn't the four fundamental forces concept out dated? We have all sorts of weird interactions, including what I think is probably the most well known, and least understood, dark energy.--Corpse in the bed (talk) 04:29, 9 September 2014 (UTC)

Four known fundamental forces, that is. Quite frankly, I'm not quite sure we should have this article. Nerd (talk) 02:48, 23 June 2016 (UTC)
No, as I understand it, dark energy is just something that interacts gravitationally, except with a repulsive gravitational effect. Incidentally this would answer a long-standing puzzle about gravity: why does it only attract? Turns out, it doesn't. Some "beyond the Standard Model" theories postulate a fifth forceWikipedia, but there's no slam-dunk evidence for one at present.
