I'm sorry -- what is this meant to be describing, exactly? Some already-known physical phenomenon, whose rules you think may be different from those it's currently thought to obey, or a conjectural new force?

The former. Or rather a set of phenomena which I believe to be more closely related than currently thought.

OK. Which physical phenomena do you think might be described in that way? I'm pretty sure the stuff in the Standard Model has been measured accurately enough to rule out anything much like what you describe.
