The final theory of physics should fit on a T-shirt. Well, here it is, in two colours. For a larger view, click on the image to open a new window:
The text reads: "... and there were motion and colours, black holes and quantum particles, life and us all." The drawing and formulae specify a promising candidate for the final, unified theory of nature. It is called the strand model, and the T-shirt shows its fundamental principle. This fundamental principle seems to contain all knowledge about motion, life and the universe; and it solves several issues of modern physics:
— All colours in nature derive from the fine structure constant 1/137.035 999 14(3), the most famous unexplained number in nature. What determines this number?
— All matter in nature is made of elementary particles that interact. What determines the types of particles, their properties and their interactions?
— All motion in nature, from atoms to the stars, is described either by quantum theory or by Einstein's general relativity, two theories that contradict each other. How can they be unified in a final theory?
The details of the answers are given on the research page. Witnesses confirm: the T-shirt is a faithful reproduction of God's favourite T-shirt. God likes it because his whole creation is described on it, including quantum theory, general relativity, cosmology, and the standard model of particle physics, with all its fundamental constants.
5 Euro of the ultimate T-shirt price go to the research project behind it. Enjoy wearing it!
