David Lindley: The lure of Numbers

The unification of the fundatmental forces, which has been the goal of theoretical particle physics for decades, is exactly the search for a mathematical system containing within it the apparently different strong, weak, electromagnetic, and gravitational forces.

Lately there have been intimations that fundamental physics is nearing that desirable day when all is understood, when all the elementary particles of the world and all the forces and interactions that affect them will have been compiled into a single cataglog, logically set out, with a place for everything and everything in a its place. That can realistically be called the end of physics.
