If we want to study the universe from 10-33 to the limit of know-ability i.e., up to the Planck Time (5.5x10-44 seconds), we need to unify all four fundamental forces into one mathematical model.
Recall that Hawking and Weinberg's hope for a final theory of physics rests on the presumption that there are only four fundamental forces in nature.
Change itself is the second of the four fundamental forces. It is a reaction to the new competitive realities and manifests itself in all kinds of initiatives inside the organization.
For example, the so-called Standard Model of particle physics only includes three of the four fundamental forces: the strong, weak, and electromagnetic forces.
In a statement Thursday by the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) that announced the detection, Giovanni Passaleva, spokesman for LHCb, said: "Finding a doubly heavy-quark baryon is of great interest as it will provide a unique tool to further probe quantum chromodynamics, the theory that describes the strong interaction, one of the four fundamental forces. Such particles will thus help us improve the predictive power of our theories."
"For decades, we've known of four fundamental forces: gravitation, electromagnetism, and the strong and weak nuclear forces.
Basically, four fundamental forces are maintaining the balance of this universe i.e.
The Standard Model describes four fundamental forces or interactions that govern how matter behaves: Gravity attracts massive bodies to one another.
Proving the existence of WIMPs could settle a 75-year-old puzzle about the identity of the dark matter in the cosmos and help physicists unify the four fundamental forces of nature.

* Physicists duked it out over the existence of WIMPs, elementary particles that could solve a mystery about the universe's dark matter and help unify the four fundamental forces of nature (157: 131).
As far as we can tell, the fundamental laws that govern our understanding of reality, including the four fundamental forces - the strong and weak nuclear force, the gravitational force, and the electromagnetic force - are unchanging, and (http://mnras.oxfordjournals.org/content/early/2016/10/08/mnras.stw2543) a new study based on light spectra of a distant quasar has now provided further confirmation.
