It seems I posted this same post in the wrong area before. So maybe someone might be interested in discussing the topic on this section of the forum. My curiosity is about the quest or search for a Unified Theory and ultimately what it means. From reading Hawking's on the subject, it seems to me it is all about looking for a single force behind everything. Very akin to God, in that it is the ultimate explanation for our life and universe, and attributes it to mono-type force. Does anyone else find that just a little ironic?
