If you look at how particle theorists describe the force, and its relationship to electro magnetism, the description is all group theory.

Calling groups by some name like electro or magnetic only works after
you have found the group separation points that were coupled Shannon
points. Its all phase and null anyway. What happens when the wave and
mass quant match nearly perfectly? SNR goes way up. Noise, kinetic
energy results from deviations from the Compton wavelength. Then you get
a lot of wave energy needed to balance phase. But this force seems to mediate between the neutrons and the protons. The strong force mediates between quarks. So the naming convention seems off to me.

A force is strong when its Shannon barriers are high, it can move many nulls without quantizing them. When the weak force separated from the electro magnetic, it made its own group, but its group is weaker than the nuclear force.

So, near the proton level, where wave and null ratios match, we have many possible ways to combine kinetic and mass rates to match the wave number. So, apply a phase imbalance to a partially complete system. Like all good Fibonacci adders, it will attempt to combine nulls into a stable set. This weak force likely came about in within a mass of semi-stable heavy leptons, and found a null group that involved a charged electron and part of a Neutron. Thus the electron orbitals as we know them. The way the physicists find these stable combinations, I think, is simply finding the nominal wave/null match, then comparing the various statistical and integer algebras. Basically the same way a stupid vacuum would do it.

Gravity, around these parts, does not have much Shannon barrier, and requantizes mass at many quant ratios, small and occupies many quant slots. The weak Shannon barrier of gravity is why we always think it a continuous.

Physicists talk about the hierarchy problem, why is gravity so much weaker than a subatomic force like the electro weak? It is not a hierarchy problem, it is a multiple of threes problem. There is room up near the proton for many multiples of twos and threes, simple as that. We are dealing with a vacuum that must do simple arithmetic. Group separation makes its life much easier. Super symmetry is all about combining multiples of twos and threes in groups and subgroups to allow some precision for this simple, fairly stupid vacuum. When you have this super integer system up near the proton, then adding in a few, weaker sub groups is fairly easy,

Gravity is way down the order, around order ten. Signal to noise sucks, and gravity is likely stuck with a few prime and not much multiplies.

Understanding the power of groups is understood by looking at the ability of the proton to count out some 120 different types of atoms and their orbitals. The proton is near that magic number, 108. Factor that number and you will see its strength.

Go back to group theory and add Shannon, the world will be much simpler.
