But it's rarely prudent to try to mush too many things together in physics; someone comes along with a counter example or demonstrates a mathematical inconsistency that requires further differentiation, or positing a new particle or putting a new *spin* on things. . .in more recent decades, it seems that there are always strings attached (my apologies to Murray Gell-Mann) to such efforts.

Given the up and down nature of the subject, I find the drive to find 
new particles (e.g., the "God" particle) *charming*.
