Phyiscs and Cosmology have come along ways in the past thousands of years. As Technology advances , finding new theories and discovering new ways of performing experiments has allowed physics and Cosmology to inch even closer to a theory of everything than ever before.


Do you believe we'll ever be able to come up with a theory of everything? Is it foolish to try and come up with a theory that explains everything in the universe?

I don't know if we will, but perhaps we'll come up with a good approximation. Some things we may never discover because those experiments would require energy levels we can't achieve. For example, can the physical constants be varied? How does that happen?

Despite it's difficulties String theory is still alive and in many ways is still the best candidate for a theory of everything. But we don't have the means to prove it. It's never foolish to keep trying.
This Is Why Physicists Think String Theory Might Be Our 'Theory Of Everything'

I like this idea myself (link below). I like that it builds on an already existing model (at the 6 dimensional charge level space) and that it can all fit into a beautiful, preexisting mathematical structure. I know, when it seems too good to be true.....nevertheless, it’s pretty cool. Enjoy!

He’s a pretty nervous speaker, reading his material. He misspeaks twice, the second time an audience member tries to correct him but it doesn’t take away from how interesting the talk is. I wonder if the LHC will turn up those “missing” particles?
