There is currently a problem in Physics; How to combine Classical Physics with Quantum Physics, into a Grand Unified Theory of Everything.
In my opinion, Hawkings, being the brightest physicist, thinks that there will not be a Theory of Everything.
Stephen Hawking says there’s no theory of everything
How do you square deterministic Classical Physics with the probabilistic Quantum Physics?
I think, the reason physicists cannot find the theory is because they ignore one thing in the universe as part of physics. Life.
This was not always so, Erwin Schrödinger wrote a book “What is Life?” that touched on DNA among other ideas. This became a taboo, but thankfully it is starting to come up again.

Life is the bridge between Classical and Quantum Physics. Will be interesting to see if this conjecture is correct.
