That Is What High Energy Physicists Say

It is a logical conclusion from the equations of high energy physics. But when these same equations are used to calculate the cosmological constant, they are wrong by a factor of ten the the 120th power. So do not believe everything a physicist says.

On the other hand. Feymann used them to calculate quantum electrodynamics and obtained the most precise agreement with experiment, mainly because the experiments were so precise, ever achieved.

So these same equations hold the world record for beingmost wrong and most right. I find that quite interesting. Clearly something very significant is still missing from physics.
