User:LockeShocke/Four forces

Musing to myself one night at a friend's house, I recalled the theory of the four forces - that is, the four governing forces of the universe. Then I thought to myself, Why not try to relate them to my life? That is, give them a human analogue. It began as a joke, just a diversion. It's become somewhat of a philosophy ever since, or maybe just a self-fulfilling prophecy.

This is a work in progress. And keep in mind that it is only meant to apply to me.

Weak[edit]

The weak nuclear force is responsible for several atomic phenomenon. I related to friendship. That is, sometimes an overwhelmingly powerful force, sometimes the cause of decay. Not as strong as the strong force below.

Strong[edit]

The strong nuclear force binds the parts of atoms to themselves within the nucleus. I relate it to family: the tie that binds. Stronger than the weak force, friendship, at least for me.

Electromagnetic[edit]

Everyone's familiar with the concept of magnetism. Staying with the cliche, I compared it to love, an attraction between two people.

Gravity[edit]

Gravity is the yet-unexplained force of attraction between two objects. Or, on Earth, the tendency of objects to fall to the ground. Inspired by my love of Modest Mouse, I related gravity to a ubiquitous melancholy that haunts my life.
