my GUT

My Grand Unifying Theory (GUT) is based on the fact that, by definition, Everything That Is (ETI) has been, will be and can be includes the real and the imaginary, the material and the immaterial (is there really a substantive difference?).

Within ETI are sentient beings and non-sentient beings, sentient beings with language, and sentient beings without language, subjects and objects, the living and the dead. So the Big Question is not about the purpose of life; it is about the purpose of life and death and everything between.

Parts of ETI are smart. Parts are dumb. The parts that are smart comprise the brain and nervous system of ETI. Everything that is smart is a neuron firing in the brain of ETI. One neuron may not be aware of another, but ETI is aware of all. It's the Great Chain of Being. It's worlds within worlds. Reality scales up as well as down.
