Always a valued 2 shekel's worth, although I daresay that if evidence for multiple dimensions were found it could be incorporated in what appears to be a pretty woolly sort of theory of everything such as this. I wouldn't dream of posting this particular theory in the science forum, because it's just not scientific, but it did put me in mind of a few er... spiritual paradigms which i've encountered over the years. Interesting, I thought.
Well, Campbell was clearly pushing his book. As far as spirituality goes, it is just as true or false as any other religious set.
One thing I don't see from Big TOE, is predictions. What would he expect, for instance, to be a viable means of a star drive, wormholes and such? Would they be possible with human style physics, that is to say, attainable with more or less what we know now?
What would it say about life on other planets, or about evolution or genesis of life?
What would it say about the possibility of finding more advanced life than human?
Does his TOE say anything at all about any of that?
