"One problem is that conventional physics doesn't really account for why the universe is so large, Arkani-Hamed said. Albert Einstein's theory of relativity showed that a huge amount of energy exists in the vacuum of space, and it should curve space and time. In fact, there should be so much curvature that the universe is a tiny, crumpled ball.

Phage will show up shortly, Or he won't. Or maybe he's already posted and we just don't know about it.
That's the problem, we can only theorize about the building blocks of the universe because we have no way of detecting them. There has to be a unifying force, the chaos of quantum mechanics doesn't get along with the order of relativity. That's why the Higgs field is so important to researchers because it could unite chaos and order.
