We put forward the following, physically motivated premiss for constructing a theory
that underlies the standard model in fourdimensional spacetime: The EulerLagrange
equations of such a theory formally resemble some equations of motion underlying
fluiddynamics equations in the kinetic theory of gases. In support of this premiss, we
point out local and covariant Lagrangians whose EulerLagrange equations contain a
subsystem equivalent to the EulerLagrange equations of the standard model with
covariantly regularized propagators, and a subsystem describing fasterthanlight effects.
