| Scientist on the Brink of Discovering What Makes up Reality and Space-Time
Since Albert Einstein established his General Theory of Relativity 100 years ago, scientists have been at odds as to how it merges with quantum mechanics – all of the fundamental particles, including the ones that have yet to be discovered and three of the four interactions: electromagnetism, and the weak and strong nuclear forces. The fourth interaction, gravity, which falls into Einstein's theory, does not match with quantum mechanics, leaving scientists unable to establish a Theory of Everything that unify the both. However, by digging to the very depths of reality, scientists are on the brink of discovering what makes up reality and how spacetime – the model that combines space and time – emerges. Their theory is that information, to put it simply, underlies and makes the universe. While that sounds like an uncontroversial understatement, what scientists mean by information is a theoretical series of numbers. This would mean that the universe is basically written in binary – zeros
