    Unfortunately, an exhaustive review of the newest developments does not exist. For a brief overview of my own new contributions see

    Hello, Demystifier, I don't suppose you'd take seriously a quantum hypothesis for a theory of everything that starts by assuming a Bohmian hidden variables theory?

    Actually, I do. Especially when I recently found out that string theory can be derived from the assumption of Bohmian mechanics:

    Actually I find my own theory of everything hypothesis at least difficult to reconcile with string theory because mine postulates large scale - rather that small scale - extra spatial dimensions where a cause acts nonlocally in addition to the forces, and which are deduced initially from quantum wave and entanglement behaviour.
