Are scientists mistaken in seeking the ‘Unified Theory of Everything’ while in actuality there may be no such thing?

If they indeed seek this theory, they are not mistaken exactly, but maybe over-stretching their limitations.

Here’s why: There is innately a unified “thing”; that’s the universe itself. There inherently cannot be a unified theory of the universe, as that theory would require equal or greater information than the universe fundamentally holds. So idealistically, there is unity; but practically, it’s nature is beyond some measly theory any sentient formations of matter can harbor or manipulate. It’d be somewhat delusion to think we can form a theory of everything, whilst knowing how hard it is to know anything.

  1. Although your perspective is interesting , but the unified theory might actually be correct due to a lot of reasons , which I might take up in a future blog post but calling it delusional is kind of absurd. People were thought to be delusional , when the idea of cloning was first stated so , I hope we can agree to disagree 🙂 Nice work !! Keep it up !

  2. From what I understood, the Theory of Everything has shifted from unified general knowledge to a more partial state of macro-understanding. It is more realistic but less credible. The initial theory proposed that everything could be understood, or theorised, with the current tools or even perception abilities we hold. Both are assumptions, none are effectively addressed.
    In my humble mind, a lot of Universal Questions could eventually be answered by quantum, but we should focus on advancing technology that allows the thorough study of particles instead of working towards a more ‘theolistic’ perception that everything could be condensed by one logical answer.

    1. I agree. It’s pointless to get ahead of ourselves so much to worry about a theory our brains can’t fathom. We should focus on working on theories that our ancestors a million years from now would appreciate.
