my theory of everything

This is no hype. I am working on a new theory of everything based on the Ising model. It already predicts gravity and I am sure it will contain the standard model and it will also describe supersymmetry and all kinds of new particles.
So far there is no evidence whatsoever for my new theory, but it turns out that the Ising model is very useful in condensed matter physics, in particular to understand phase transitions of ferromagnets.
I take this as an important hint that I am on the right track with my theory of everything.

  1. Can I just hope that you will keep the number of unobservables to a minimum?

    String theory for instance maximises the number of unobservables with a Calabi-Yau manifold of 6 rolled up extra spatial dimensions with Rube-Goldberg machines to stabilize the hundred odd moduli of those dimensions, and a resulting 10^500 unobserved parallel universes.

    I think that if you are working on a theory which has no evidence and isn't based on facts, the least you can do is to make sure that you don't require a lot of unobservables like 10^500 universes. Otherwise it is a complex theory which lacks the beauty of simplicity. Every theory which has no evidence is metaphysics, but if you are going to do mathematical metaphysics, you should seek - if possible - to keep it as elegant and therefore as simple as possible.

    Good luck with your model of everything!
