With the long search and expectation for the theory of everything (TOE), many physicists and laymen concerned have wondered what the theory of everything would look like.
Now, the theory of everything is the theory long expected to unify all the known forces in physics and to reveal to us the ultimate understanding of the universe.
So I want you to ask yourself: if I have in my hands right now the theory of everything, what would I see in it? What would this long-sought encompassing theory look like? Would I be blown away? What would such a fundamental theory show me about the universe?
These questions and many more are the reasons why I have decided to write this article. So, in this article, I want us to address this all-important question: what would the theory of everything look like?
First of all, such an encompassing theory may not be titled “The Theory of Everything” or even “The Unified Field Theory”. It may come by other titles which are also or even more grandiose. It may even come with just a simple title that can easily be overlooked if one is not careful enough.
That being said, what if one comes into contact with the theory of everything and opens it, what would one see? One would see a number of revelations but the most paramount without which such a theory cannot pass as the unified theory is the unity of the macro and the micro worlds or realms.
However, this unity would maybe become evident only when one must have gone through much of the book or the proposed theory of everything.
Now, one important aspect of this question is the thought it provokes, which is: would we see either relativity or quantum theory or a perfect blend of relativity and quantum mechanics as many physicists would expect?
The latter expectation is because many physicists see the unification problem as being due to relativity and quantum mechanics not coming together, so a theory of everything or a unified field theory is expected to bring the central principles of these two pillars of physics together.
But what if I tell you that this wouldn’t be the case and that the theory of everything (TOE) would look like relativity and nothing like quantum mechanics. It won’t even be the perfect blend of both theories and it would have at its core the final exposition of the continuity principle.
I have discussed why this is the case in some of my earlier scientific posts but I will specially do so in my next scientific article.
The theory of everything would look exactly like relativity, and if you wonder what kind of relativity theory it would look like, then I must tell you that it would look like special relativity and not general relativity.
Why would this so? This would be because the theory of everything achieves the geometrical harmony of the universe. The theory of everything shows us that all events, whether for inertial or non-inertia reference frames, occur in a flat space-time.
When one would look into the theory of everything, one would see that there is no geometrical disharmony of the universe like we see today in modern relativity that divides events into those that occur in a flat, Euclidean space-time and those that occur in a curved, Riemannian space-time.
This is a beautiful discovery that many are not expecting, but it is a discovery that shows us how relativity is singularly responsible for the unification problem and for showing us why it is the true form of the theory of everything.
Now, I have mentioned three things that are what the theory of everything would look like or what it would show to us. The first is that it may not be titled “The Theory of Everything (TOE)” or “The Unified Field Theory (UFT)” which Einstein first created and popularized.
The second is that it would look like relativity and exactly like special relativity, and as a result of this, we have the third, which is that it would be established on the flat, Euclidean space-time for all world-events and this is to show us the geometrical harmony of the universe.
Looking at the above three realizations that will come with the fundamental theory, I believe that you are beginning to grasp what the theory of everything would look like and what to expect or see when you open it and look into illumination.
A lot more about our universe will be revealed, and I say this because this article is not enough to contain all that the theory of everything will reveal to us about the universe.
Furthermore, about what the theory of everything would look like, is in how it would reveal the principles that are missing in today’s physics and which have made it incomplete. And one of such principles which many physicists have not thought about is the fundamental principle of accelerated motion.
In physics, we have the central principle of uniform motion which is the principle of inertia. Now, have you ever wondered why we don’t have such principle for accelerated motion?
The theory of everything is going to expose what the central principle of accelerated motion is, thus showing us that the principle is only missing in our physics and not in the universe.
This missing principle which the theory of everything is going to reveal is very important, and the theory of everything is going to show us how the absence of this absolutely fundamental principle is what has caused so many wrong conjectures, principles and theories to emerge out of physics, one of which is quantum theory.
A lot of what is missing in today’s physics will be exposed by the theory of everything, and the central principle of accelerated motion is one of them. This revelation will make us see how both uniform motion and accelerated motion are at par with each other, and more importantly, how the universe exists in perfect harmony.
I can go on and on about all of this, but one more important thing I want to talk about is dark energy. The nature of dark energy is a mystery that confronts today’s physics, so physicists rightly expect that the theory of everything would shed more light on its nature.
Yes, the theory of everything would expose to us what dark energy is and it would do so by informing us about another kind of energy existing in the universe which we did not know before.
We are only familiar with the energy in Joules, but the astronomical observation of dark energy is letting us know that there is another kind of energy in the universe which is not the energy in Joules. This revelation is among what would introduce us to a new kind of physics possible in the universe.
This revelation from the theory of everything about a new kind of energy in the universe would literally up-turn 400 years of quantitative science and launch us into the new era of experiential science, which is the true science of the universe.
It’s not only our understanding of energy that would be transformed but also our understanding of force, momentum, velocity, acceleration, etc. This new understanding of energy, force and the rest is what would take us to the necessary mental level to comprehend quantum mechanics or the atomic world which its understanding has long eluded us.
And when we discover the theory of everything, we would find out that the belief that “no one can understand quantum mechanics” is a lie and at most a self-defeating belief. We would find out that, in fact, the atomic world is simple, both in conceptual structure and in corresponding understanding.
We would understand the atomic world when the theory of everything comes. Also, the fundamental theory would expose to us the causative nature of light and gravity, both of which have mystified great scientific minds down the ages.We would understand the atomic world when the theory of everything comes.Click To Tweet
We would understand these entities in their true nature when the theory of everything comes. This is important, because, as at today, light is taken as a wave and also as a particle. This paradox or duality cannot continue.
Also, gravity is very misunderstood as we have not been able to show what it does in the atomic world. All of these would be resolved by the theory of everything (TOE).
And to prove its rank, the theory of everything would unify light and gravity and give us the first real field theory of physics. The theory of everything would expose the nature of the continuum and how all events are weaved into it.
This was the grand aim of Albert Einstein and till today, even though he failed, this aim remains what should be the focus. The theory of everything or the unified field theory is about the unity of light and gravity, the other two supposed forces of the universe, the weak force and the strong force, are not true, existing forces in the universe.
Thus, the theory of everything would show us how all phenomena and manifestations are due to light and gravity, and why the atom, especially the nucleus is stable without making reference to the strong and the weak forces.
However, what would really push away the idea of the weak force and the strong force is the discovery of the universal equivalence principle. The theory of everything would show us that the weak equivalence principle and the strong equivalence principle are equivalent.
This insightful principle referred to as the universal equivalence principle is one core principle that we would find in the theory of everything.
The theory of everything would not be a physical theory as many expect; it would be a metaphysical theory. But this is not to say that it would not be mathematical, rather it would be “sufficiently mathematical” and not filled with wild and baseless conjectures like we find in some metaphysical works.
The theory of everything would reveal the true nature of the principles of the universe which are metaphysical and different from the way some are already presented today in physical science.
Now, you may think that we have a long way to go before all of this be fulfilled, but that is not true, the time is already here.
Until next time,
I will be here.
