This is concerned with "unification" in the sense of the coming together of observer and observed. Generally speaking, theory arises from experience. So in order to develop a theory of unification, surely we need to experience unification first? Theoreticians often rely on experiment, intuition, mathematical beauty, etc. However what about transcendental experience? Where is the vision of what we are trying to achieve, beyond the desire for a really nice looking equation? Should physicists be enhancing the usual "intellectual" aspects of knowledge, mathematics, etc with "spiritual" aspects? Yet this last aspect is often dismissed as unimportant. The critical point is that we are not unified creatures, and we actively spend our time embracing duality. If we study hard and accept a top job as a theoretical physicist, away from the cares and woes of the rest of humanity, we may actually be enhancing the duality within ourselves. So how then are we able to develop a theory of unification? To put it bluntly, what we are doing may be about as foolish as using a pea shooter to catch an elephant. Is there any one else who shares my concerns?
