"When one thing is practiced & pursued, ignorance is abandoned, clear knowing arises, the conceit 'I am' is abandoned, latent tendencies are uprooted, fetters are abandoned. Which one thing? Mindfulness immersed in the body." -AN 1.230

It'll be a long list: electro-magnetic force, strong nuclear force, weak nuclear force, photons, quarks, quasars, etc...and many many more out there, waiting for scientists to discover. The universe is like a gigantic dark room full of objects yet to be seen and humans are like a man in this dark room with a flash light, discovering one object at a time with his tool. The objects are already there, they just have to be found..
