Theory of Everything


Theory of Everything”. To understand this, first we have to know what ‘theory’ is and what significance of ‘everything’ is.
A certain phenomenon is analyzed, based on the observation. We try to present the analysis into a conceptual and abstract thought which is called theory. Observations may not be absolute, so theory is revised. Many times, certain observation may contradict the fundamental assumption taken while presenting theory and hence may falsified the theory.
Everything means everything surrounds you, effect directly or indirectly or is affected directly or indirectly. Everything is not limited to mechanical world where beauty, love and compassion are abstract senses; but here everything includes all; the feeling after seeing a rose; the happiness after getting a success; the desperation after departing your lover. The question remains whether we can be able to formularize or conceptualize these things and can predict a theory. For this, our observation should be infinite and some-times; it seems a never-lasting process. It may have two reasons. Either the complexity of nature is truly bottomless or the way we have chosen to describe the universe is inaccurate, asymptotic approximation of reality. But whatever will be, the nature is so much arranged, regulated, automated that it stills claims a certain theory which encompasses all. As the Newtonian mechanics describes the motion as a function of mass, position and time, may be ‘Theory of Everything’ requires more parameters and dimensions to explain everything. The quest of this theory is quest of these parameters. It’s amazing to visualize the similarity of quantum physics to the universe, the similarity of human physiology to the universe (as described by Patanjali in Yoga Sastra). When it is said that Universe is expansion of our self, it means that the same phenomena that occurs in your body happens in universe in a gross manner. It is question of future whether we will be able to find this theory or not. According to Stephen hawking, even if we will be able to find the ‘theory of everything’, it will be necessarily a set of equations. So let’s wait when we will have equation to demonstrate the smell of rose, joy of love and distress in disaster.

Hi Amit,if like u i was also interested in this theory but faced the hurdle of Heisenberg Uncertainity Principle and kurt Godel theorem of incompleteness.

thanks for your comment..
All the physical theory that has given till today are successive approximation to reality and hence I agree that it seems unlikely to converge a series of approximation to truth. but some physicist also claim that after each new theory, due to Gauge symmetry , theories becomes simpler which lead to believe them the existence of such theory...

Wow!! You stole my words!! The post with thoughts on this, I have it on my drafts. Will soon publish it. :)

Not just the theory of everything, Indians found out a lot of things and "philosophised" them long back. Just cos they are in sanskrit and just cos, we dont care to spread our heritage and epics, we end up accepting things from the west as their work.

Lots of glaring similarities.. Really!

Women-Empowerment (A Short Story)

Her spectacle ridden red eyes were trying to run away from the crowd as soon as possible. Every person was looking so alien, so dreadful.  Her heart was pounding so fast, it felt it could come out anytime. She closed her eyes; took a long-breath; chanted a prayer, perhaps to stabilize her trembling soul. But it was of no use. In the high decibel of the noise she had already lost her ability to hear her own words. Somewhere at some meters away she found a corner.  She moved towards the corner with her shuddering legs but alas! Her blurring eyes were proving too difficult to keep open. She fell down and in a few hours she was laying against white bed-sheet in the government hospital. She didn’t know who took her there.  She moved her eyes everywhere to search some known faces. But there was no one. Finally she closed her eyes. So how are you feeling now? She heard a male, soothing yet concerned voice, but not sure if it was for her or someone else. She opened her eyes slightly...As the ima…

Begging Future

Scientists believe that after a certain period especially childhood, our mind does not develop; it just gathers knowledge, makes it experiences and learns new things.Freud, the father of psychology claims that till that age, the way our mind gets shaped; it lasts for our whole life and defines our behaviour and character. So, the important point which I want to draw is that childhood is the most crucial period which decides and defines our future.
To grow a child, is an art, the most beautiful living art of existence. But unfortunately, everyone doesn’t want to reveal his art as they have never felt the joy of this art Or maybe they would have work more prior to this. So their creation is not perfect. A child needs care, love, humbleness, spontaneity; which most of people would be mistaken by fulfilment of economic needs. Well, a good school can substitute the role of parents to an extent but not completely.
In case of India where good schools and perfect parents are a distant fantasy f…

LAKSHMEE- A short story (Guest Post)

Many years have passed since she left this imperfect and unjust world, but still she floats around in my memories time to time. Today I have decided to tell the story of Lakshmee as was perceived through my eyes. Lakshmee was born as a first child in a family which had seen a girl child after two generations. Although a boy would have been more welcome in this case also, Her arrival in this world was tolerated or I dare say welcomed in much better way than many of other girls had in my village. At that time you could guess by the silence and gloom at home that a girls had arrived or by noise of celebration that a boy had been born. A feast was arranged as celebration for her birth which was generally reserved for boys. Her grandfather christened her Lakshmee, consoling his son that she will bring prosperity, material and money as well as many boys to family.
She was a very lovely child with plenty of smiles and comfortable with anyone wishing to carry her in his/her arms. Since she wa…
