Many said: 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 the most promising candidate for the final, unified theory of nature. It is called the strand model, and the T-shirt shows its fundamental principle. It contains all information about the universe, motion and life. The fundamental principle of the strand model solves all issues of modern physics, including these:
— All colours in nature derive from the fine structure constant 1/137.035 999 1(1), the most famous unexplained number in nature. What determines this number?
— All matter in nature is 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 in the sixth volume of this book series. Witnesses confirm: the T-shirt is a faithful reproduction of God's favourite T-shirt. God likes it because all of nature 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 T-shirt price go to the research project behind it. Enjoy wearing it!
