This is a site for Theoretical Nuclear AstroPhysics & Quantum Cosmology. I have posted my point of view with respect to a possible basis for a ToE. I will also post ToE related theories from public input regarding emergent concepts related to completing our understanding of the Universe.
A ToE will contain more than merely conceptual models. Self consistent conceptual models are a necessary (albeit insufficient) condition for a satisfactory ToE model. They require a mathematical linkage to, or replacement of, Standard Model Physics. (e.g. Super String or M Theory)
This should include a (possibly Super Symmetric) Grand Unified Theory (GUT) or at least a rationalization of charge: the (Special) Relativistic Quantum ElectroDynamics (QED) and Quantum ChromoDynamics (QCD) of the ElectroMagnetic-Weak (ElectroWeak) and Strong Forces respectively).
Completion of the ToE should rationalize a GUT with mass or (possibly Loop Quantum) Gravity (i.e. General Relativity’s (GR) Gravitational Force).
They must also have a basis in the scientific method – implying the ability to predict experimentally verifiable phenomena (e.g. a simple and accurate prescription for particle masses).
The Context & Framework for thinking about the Universe, cosmology, life, mankind, and cognition should not be mistaken as part of a ToE. The philosophies, musings, and motivations of the scientist should not be confused with science. They sometimes provide a (sometimes even mathematical) method to help simplify the understanding of the inner complexities of the Math and Physics of the ToE.
