Final Theory 

 

What physicists seek, at least those who haven’t given up hope in the possibility, is a grandiose understanding of everything. The mechanics not only of the world, but of themselves, the things trying to figure out the world, which most of them assume will follow naturally from their understanding of everything else. What those who still think understanding is possible are trying to understand seems obvious to them. But maybe if they opened their minds enough, they could¬†experience¬†the truth of reality. Maybe then they would realize their notion of understanding is what they need to try to understand.
