Why the Weak force should be called the Muto force
Muto was inspired by the Scottish Gaelic word mùthadh, which itself is probably related to the Latin mutatus, which means ‘to change’. This makes sense, as the most important role of the ‘weak’ force is its unique ability to change the flavour of quarks. It is this property that allows our sun to burn. It may even be responsible for the diversity and evolution of life on earth, as random mutations are thought to take place due to neutrinos interacting with the genetic code of lifeforms through this universal force.
