The final theory of physics should be fun, and it should fit on a T-shirt. Here is the T-shirt - the original - 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."
On the T-shirt the drawing and formulae describe the fundamental principle of a candidate for the unified theory of physics, called the tangle model. The drawing appears to contain general relativity, cosmology, quantum field theory, and the standard model of particle physics, with all its fundamental constants. In particular, the tangle model solves the following 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 and radiation is made of elementary particles that interact. What determines the types of particles, the types of interactions, and their properties?
— All motion in nature, from atoms to the stars, is described either by the standard model or by Einstein's general relativity, two descriptions that are difficult to reconcile. How can they be unified in a final theory?
The details of the answers are given on the
research page. In short: the tangle model appears to contain and explain
all observations and knowledge about motion.
5 Euro of the T-shirt price go to our non-profit association. Enjoy!
