Most if not all laws of physics are not mathematical, rather statements that define the way mathematical models must follow. They have been laid down by intuition and observation.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

So how can something like string theory based on maths be expected to achieve a GUT or TOE if it does not know whether or not it is following the correct rules.

A theory of everything must describe the start of the universe not necessarily mathematically but by laying down the conditions that led to that beginning from which the maths will emerge.
