Ideas developed from the quantum matter and quantum field theory frontier may guide us to explore new physics beyond the 4d Standard Model. I propose a few such ideas. First, new physics for neutrinos: right-handed neutrinos carry a Z_{16} class mixed gauge-gravitational global anomaly index, which could be replaced by 4d or 5d topological quantum field theory, or 4d interacting conformal field theory. These theories provide possible new neutrino mass mechanisms [arXiv:2012.15860]. Second, deconfined quantum criticality between Grand Unified Theories: dictated by a Z_2 class global anomaly, a gapless quantum critical region can happen between Georgi-Glashow and Pati-Salam models as deformation of the Standard Model, where Beyond the Standard Model physics and Dark Gauge sector occur as neighbor phases [arXiv:2106.16248, arXiv:2112.14765, arXiv:2204.08393]. Third, the Strong CP problem can be solved by a new solution involving Symmetric Mass Generation [arXiv:2204.14271].
