Many Gods Hypothesis

Apparently there may not be just one God particle but perhaps five of ‘em. Shall we say physicists are testing Many Gods Hypothesis. See this Beebs report.

Here’s a question that has assailed our collective primate head all through its history: Do truly fundamental constituents of matter exist or is it turles all the way? Some ancient Greeks took a bold and bogus stand. They abstracted the idea as Atom and said it’s the end of all matter splitting but we now know better (or maybe not). We have been continuing that splitting tradition. Is it possible to think that there are no fundamental constituents and still do meaningful physics?
