Have weak nuclear, strong nuclear, and electromagnetism all been unified? If so, is that the GUT? And is it that unifying those forces with gravity would lead to a TOE?

Thanks. I'm just getting a little confused.

GUT = unify strong, weak and electromagnetic interactions
TOE = unify GUT with the gravitational interaction
