We propose a model of generations that has exactly three generations. This model has several attractive features: There is a simple mechanism to produce the CKM quark mixings and their neutrino analogs. There are definite predictions for particles of much higher mass than the quarks and leptons of the standard model, including the prediction of two-body decays without missing mass for the higher mass particles. There is a natural dark matter particle. A discussion of masses of the quarks suggests that the large mass differences between the generations could have a qualitative explanation, and there could be a simple way to make the u-d mass difference negative, but the c-s and t-b mass differences positive. The model also suggests a completely new scenario for the production, mass and decays of the Higgs meson that will be analysed in a separate paper.
