Grand Unified Theory On One Sheet

November 11th, 2012 | Posted by paul in Uncategorized - (0 Comments)

Here’s a funny what if homework assignment. This is not the grand unified field theory (GUT) that unites all the known fundamental force forces, including gravity, which is now called the “Theory of Everything” (TOE). This is a formulaic unification of the three quantum-scale fundamental forces of electromagnetism, the weak and strong nuclear forces. Leading TOE contenders for uniting Quantum Mechanics (QM) with Einsteins General Relativity are String TheoryQuantum Gravity (QG). See also Loop Quantum Gravity (LQG), Supersymmetry and the Holographic Principle. Ultimately, a more complete Theory of Everything should include consciousness as a fundamental – see also David Bohm’s Implicate Order, Amit Goswami’s Self-Aware Universe and Michael Talbot Holographic Universe.

Extra Credit: Please integrate the quantum field of gravity into this equation (10 pts + Nobel Prize + immortal fame).

What Kind of Particle Are You?

Here’s a mind map of particle physics based on the Standard Model (the closest thing we have yet to a Grand Unified Theory), sans dark matter or other exotica. But hey, it’s the exotica that are more fun, right? This is a fun and engaging map anyway:
