It's all hokum unless you can solve for when trump will die.

Insert shaft into hole, pump the handle, and if you are good enough, Big Bang happens.

I notice you left God out of the equation.

Why is that, heathen?

Absolutely. I didn't name my elder daughter after her for nothing . Her main line of work was in higher algebra, but she did this side project which turned out to be the most important thing in theoretical physics. She found out that any continuous symmetry in the laws of nature directly correspond to a conserved quantity, and vice versa. For example, if the fundamental laws don't explicitely depend on time, there is a conserved quantity associated with that. We call this quantity "Energy". This idea callows us to construct theories based on symmetries by postulating which conserved quantities they should incorporate, and it allows us to gain a deeper understanding of what makes these theories tick.
The fool hath said in his heart, There is a God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.

Yes, that's what I thought.  Thank you for confirming it.

When are you definitely going to to be famous?

(None of this uncertainty principle please)

What is the least understood and/or most controversial thingy that physics is looking at?
