A STATISTICAL SUPERFIELD AND ITS OBSERVABLE CONSEQUENCES

Abstract
A new kind of fundamental superfield is proposed, with an Ising-like Euclidean ac-
tion. Near the Planck energy it undergoes its first stage of symmetry-breaking, and
the ordered phase is assumed to support specific kinds of topological defects. This
picture leads to a low-energy Lagrangian which is similar to that of standard physics,
but there are interesting and observable differences. For example, the cosmological
constant vanishes, fermions have an extra coupling to gravity, the gravitational inter-
action of W-bosons is modified, and Higgs bosons have an unconventional equation of
motion.
