Stephen Hawking states three possabilities of a Grand Unified Theory: 1.There really is a complete unified theory, which we will someday discover if we are smart enough. 2. There is no ultimate theory of the universe, just an infinite sequence of theories that describe the universe more and more accurately. 3. There is no theory of the universe; events cannot be predicted beyond a certain extent but occur in a random and arbitrary manner. This was written some time back and my questions are: 1. Are we any closer to discovering a GUT? or 2. Has it been discounted as bah humbug? 3. Are there more possabilities other than the three quoted?
