The Antithesis...

Standard Model (mathematical formulation): Wikipedia
...this contradicts my post here, but the nature of science is to do research and publish findings. The fact we have null and alternative hypothesis eventually leads to one or the other winning out; a synthesis (Hegelian dialectic), or "back to the drawing board." Keeps the physicists out of after hours bars...

A team of physicists from the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB) and the French CNRS have predicted deviations in the probability of one of the B meson decays that have been detected experimentally in the LHC accelerator at CERN. Confirmation of these results would be the first direct evidence of the existence of the 'new physics', a more fundamental theory than the current Standard Model.

The Standard Model, which has given the most complete explanation up to now of the universe, has gaps, and is unable to explain phenomena like dark matter or gravitational interaction between particles. Physicists are therefore seeking a more fundamental theory that they call "New Physics", but up to now there has been no direct proof of its existence, only indirect observation of dark matter, as deduced, among other things, from the movement of the galaxies.
