I would like to start a new thread - not on strings, M, or other possible theories of everything that lead to a unified field theory - but to the opposing view: the option that a unified field of forces does not and cannot exist. I have some mathematical information that I want to use later (that gave me an indication that a unified field of forces is an impossibility). First I am curious if there is anybody else out there, who has serious doubts about the existence of any unified field theories. Much has been said about the ultimate platform on which unification would be possible. In my opinion, not enough attention has been given to the opposite. Can you please articulate why a unified field of forces cannot exist. I am going to give one example of a singular platform (our earth) with four active members (North, South, East, and West). Though the platform is (or appears to be) singular, these four active ingredients do not have a common thread; the platform is known, but does not contain unification. East and West can go on forever in their direction, but some unification can be found in that they can cover exactly the same spots. Depending on your point of view, a single place can be East or West. For such single spot, North and South appear to deliver the same set-up as East and West, but North and South cannot go on forever in their direction. When on the North pole, one cannot go further North. One cannot even go East or West on the North pole. There is only one direction on the North pole, and that is South. To unify North and South in absolute terms is not possible, while it appears possible for East and West. These four directions contain a pair of opposition without the possibility of unification (North and South), and a pair of opposition in which unification appears very well possible (East meets West). This example may not be scientific enough for everyone. Please use any platform you can think of to denounce (or confirm) the possibility of unification on a single platform.
