The Nullified Field Theory

After reading about some of the efforts to unify the fundamental theories of physics into a Unified Field Theory or GUT (Grand Unified Theory), and carrying this trend to its logical extreme, I had what might be a really great idea:

Nullified Field Theory: There are zero fundamental forces.

I always apply Occam's Razor to new conjectures: a simpler mechanism is more likely than a more complex mechanism. Well, the NFT (Nullified Field Theory) clearly passes this test, because it has fewer mechanisms.

Watch for the author's mind-breaking paper to be submitted to Nature in a millennium near you!
