The Theory of Everything is a term for the ultimate theory of the universe—a set of equations capable of describing
all phenomena that have been observed, or that will ever be observed.
Recently, Sussex physicists have taken a small step towards fulfilling Einstein’s dream of proving there is only
one fundamental force in nature.
Besides giving masses to all known particles, it’s possible that the Higgs boson played a significant role in the
expansion of the Universe after the Big Bang.
“The discovery at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider last year of the Higgs boson particle was very exciting.
Although its existence had been predicted, nobody knew for sure. Now we’re looking to see if the way it behaves is
also as scientists have predicted – and early results look promising,” Dr Calmet says.
Through playing with their equations and using data from the Large Hadron Collider, the Sussex scientists have been
able to constrain the Higgs boson’s interaction with gravity. The results are published this month in the journal
Physical Review Letters.
“The discovery of the Higgs boson has deep implications for gravitational theories that explain
the evolution of our universe,” Dr Calmet says.
“Einstein's dream, which we are still trying to fulfil, consists in unifying all interactions of nature –
gravitation, electromagnetism, strong interaction and weak interaction - into one framework.

The idea is that there is actually only one fundamental force in nature and that the forces we see on a daily basis are just different
facets of this fundamental force of nature. Understanding the properties of the Higgs boson and in particular
its gravitational interactions will be a key factor on our path to this grand unification.”
Space-Time Crystal Computer That Can Outlive Even The Universe Itself!
It may seem strange to think something can survive even the death of the Universe,
but that could actually be possible as a result of the laws of quantum physics.
Scientists are now suggesting a new blueprint for a device,
known as a time crystal, that can theoretically continue to function as a
computer even after the universe cools to absolute zero.
