    Do you believe in a unified theory of physics?

    String Theory. Loop Quantum Gravity. Or some other variation of those.

    Well it certainly exists as a theory so I have to believe in its existence.  I am not skilled enough in physics to believe whether the theory is true or not.

    I believe that everything has an explanation. Whether or not all these explanations fit into a nicely-wrapped package with a ribbon bow on top is something I'm less certain of. Particle physics and quantum mechanics seem to be making the most progress in the way of concrete proof, something that has yet to be seen with M-theory or like alternatives. Gravity seems to be the most elusive of things, as we still only have theories as to why it happens. I personally tend to like General Relativity, but it's not exactly a full explanation of why gravity occurs. I look forward to seeing some progress during my lifetime on these theories though!

      Right, well Quantum Mechanics and General Relativity are both accepted. But together they don't agree. One talks about small things, the other big things and they can't be used to describe the other. There must be another theory to join them...

    I'm sure that there is a very nice, simple way to describe how everything works, but it's probably beyond the grasp of a species trying to understand the universe by smashing particles together and staring into space with tubes orbiting a round rock.

    At least for now...

      Ha! Yeah I know what you mean. How would you propose we do it? By actually exploring the universe?
