PDF | A theory of everything, or, grand unified theory (which Einstein had been physicist, Sir Roger Penrose, sometime colleague of Stephen Hawking. Everything: The Origin and Fate of the Universe The Theory of Everything: The Origin and Fate of the Universe By Hawking, Stephen INTRODUCTION In this. Key words: theory of everything; physics of everything; philosophy of everything; origin of .. Stephen Hawking, Lucasian Professor of Physics. “With the success .
This behavior of the universe [expanding universe] could have been predicted from Newton's theory of gravity at any time in the nineteenth, the eighteenth, or even the late seventeenth centuries. Yet so strong was the belief in a static universe that it persisted into the early twentieth century.
Even when Einstein formulated the general theory of relativity in , he was sure that the universe had to be static. The present evidence, therefore, suggests that the universe will probably expand forever. But don't bank on it.

Black holes are one of only a fairly small number of cases in the history of science where a theory was developed in great detail as a mathematical model before there was any evidence from observations that it was correct. Quantum mechanics allows the universe to have a beginning that is not a singularity. This means that the laws of physics need not break down at the origin of the universe. In the case of the whole universe, one can show that this negative gravitational energy exactly cancels the positive energy of the matter.
So the total energy of the universe is zero. One could say: "The boundary condition of the universe is that it has no boundary. It would be neither created nor destroyed. It would just be.
I should emphasize that this idea that time and space should be finite without boundary is just a proposal. It cannot be deduced from some other principle.
A scientific theory is just a mathematical model we make to describe our observations. It exists only in our minds. So it does not have any meaning to ask: Which is real, "real" or "imaginary" time? It is simply a matter of which is a more useful description.
The Theory of Everything: The Origin and Fate of the Universe
If the universe is really completely self-contained, having no boundary or edge, it would be neither created nor destroyed. It would simply be. Utilization of quantum computing concepts made it possible to demonstrate that the particles are able to survive quantum fluctuations.
Bilson-Thompson's original paper suggested that the higher-generation fermions could be represented by more complicated braidings, although explicit constructions of these structures were not given.
The electric charge, colour, and parity properties of such fermions would arise in the same way as for the first generation. The model was expressly generalized for an infinite number of generations and for the weak force bosons but not for photons or gluons in a paper by Bilson-Thompson, Hackett, Kauffman and Smolin. Another theory is called Causal Sets. As some of the approaches mentioned above, its direct goal isn't necessarily to achieve a TOE but primarily a working theory of quantum gravity, which might eventually include the standard model and become a candidate for a TOE.
Its founding principle is that spacetime is fundamentally discrete and that the spacetime events are related by a partial order. This partial order has the physical meaning of the causality relations between relative past and future distinguishing spacetime events.
Outside the previously mentioned attempts there is Garrett Lisi's E8 proposal. This theory attempts to construct general relativity and the standard model within the Lie group E8. The theory doesn't provide a novel quantization procedure and the author suggests its quantization might follow the Loop Quantum Gravity approach above mentioned.
For example, no candidate theory is able to calculate the fine structure constant or the mass of the electron. Most particle physicists expect that the outcome of the ongoing experiments — the search for new particles at the large particle accelerators and for dark matter — are needed in order to provide further input for a TOE.
Arguments against[ edit ] In parallel to the intense search for a TOE, various scholars have seriously debated the possibility of its discovery. Stanley Jaki , in his book The Relevance of Physics, pointed out that, because any "theory of everything" will certainly be a consistent non-trivial mathematical theory, it must be incomplete.
He claims that this dooms searches for a deterministic theory of everything. No matter how many problems we solve, there will always be other problems that cannot be solved within the existing rules.
I used to belong to that camp, but I have changed my mind. Douglas S.
Robertson offers Conway's game of life as an example:  The underlying rules are simple and complete, but there are formally undecidable questions about the game's behaviors.
Analogously, it may or may not be possible to completely state the underlying rules of physics with a finite number of well-defined laws, but there is little doubt that there are questions about the behavior of physical systems which are formally undecidable on the basis of those underlying laws. Fundamental limits in accuracy[ edit ] No physical theory to date is believed to be precisely accurate. Instead, physics has proceeded by a series of "successive approximations" allowing more and more accurate predictions over a wider and wider range of phenomena.
Some physicists believe that it is therefore a mistake to confuse theoretical models with the true nature of reality, and hold that the series of approximations will never terminate in the "truth".
Einstein himself expressed this view on occasions. On the other hand, it is often claimed that, despite the apparently ever-increasing complexity of the mathematics of each new theory, in a deep sense associated with their underlying gauge symmetry and the number of dimensionless physical constants , the theories are becoming simpler. If this is the case, the process of simplification cannot continue indefinitely.
Lack of fundamental laws[ edit ] There is a philosophical debate within the physics community as to whether a theory of everything deserves to be called the fundamental law of the universe. Another view is that emergent laws, which govern the behavior of complex systems , should be seen as equally fundamental.

Examples of emergent laws are the second law of thermodynamics and the theory of natural selection. The advocates of emergence argue that emergent laws, especially those describing complex or living systems are independent of the low-level, microscopic laws. In this view, emergent laws are as fundamental as a TOE. The debates do not make the point at issue clear. Possibly the only issue at stake is the right to apply the high-status term "fundamental" to the respective subjects of research.
A well-known debate over this took place between Steven Weinberg and Philip Anderson [ citation needed ] Impossibility of being "of everything"[ edit ] Although the name "theory of everything" suggests the determinism of Laplace's quotation, this gives a very misleading impression.They will not beable to come out of the black hole again.
If this happened, the universe would bein an unstable state, with more energy than if the symmetry had been broken.
