Over that past few years I've been working on a GUT based on the ideas of a more simple universe.
And you will fail. I can tell that now. Why? Because the point of a theory is to explain observed phenomena (and, BTW, not necessarily to conform to your preconceptions). So the first step needs to be to learn what phenomena you are trying to explain.

It's probably also useful to learn what other attempts at a GUT have been made, and what their strengths and weaknesses are.
