Is there an all-encompassing, coherent theoretical framework of physics that fully explains and links together every physical aspect in the universe? A Theory of Everything would have to include the standard model of particle physics along with general relativity and at the same time be able to calculate the fine structure constant or the mass of the electron, define how the electromagnetic and weak forces merge, explain dark matter, dark energy, cover string theory and the multiverse and state how the universe will end. If we ever found a Theory of Everything, then physicists could make sense out of all the weird and wonderful things in our universe.
Even though I am fascinated by particle physics, many other people couldn’t care less about things like supersymmetry or tachyons. Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking are pioneers in astrophysics and this theory, but neither one was able to work out all the details in their lifetimes. I am basically a clown compared to these guys and I will never do anything that could compare to Joe DiMaggio’s 56-game hitting streak, Wilt Chamberlain’s 100-point game, or Ronnie O’Sullivan’s 147 maximum break in snooker. I have never been to a hotpot restaurant, but one day I would like to taste those Chinese dumplings with a studded leather lover while listening to music, as that could be something for my diary. I hope that would not make me a prisoner of pomp or a slave to circumstance where there comes a point in my life when I feel completely jaded like I did when I had to sell my Mackintosh speakers.
