I What are the best TOE candidates?

  1. Mar 15, 2016 #1
    Given the state of current and recent TOE advances, (Ads/CFT, LQG, M-theory, Twistors...) in what framework do you believe a TOE will first appear?

    I say first because I have a hunch that a breakthrough in one area will correspond to dualities in others. It seems to me that if a given theory has the appropriate degrees of freedom and that the language is sufficiently powerful to describe the physical universe, there will exist a formalism of that language that must correspond to a TOE. So, a breakthrough in M-theory can be mapped into an analogue in LQG that translates into Ads/CFT... And so on... Are there hints of this out there or am I way off?

    Thank you for your time and patience.
