These two went up within a week of each-other.
Basically, a “Unified Theory” is a single theory that would link all forms of physics. Apparently, this is very difficult to do. Albert Einstein spent many years attempting it. So has Stephan Hawking and many other great minds. So far : nothing.
But that didn’t stop these guys!
I wonder how that even works. If light is staying still and we’re moving, how does light works in both directions? I guess I’d need to pledge $25 to find out.
One (Andrew’s Theory)
“Hi, Kickstarters! My name is Andrew Macauley and I am The Scholar of the Brightest Star.”
Hi Jackass, I’m The Blogger of Perpetual Contempt!
That’s already got a name. It’s called “Philosophy”. Seriously, that’s pretty much the textbook definition of philosophy. Not that he’d know. I’m not convinced Mr Macauley has ever opened a textbook.
Here’s a final thought from The Scholar of the Brightest Star :
Violet light leads to ethereal highs within the infinite darkness of the great divide that connects you to your higher mind.

So how are they doing?
There’s a certain cosmic beauty in the fact that both of these projects (at the time I wrote this) have exactly one backer.
But here’s what confuses me :
Why are there two of these projects running at the same time?
Besides the obvious irony of two Theories of One, it seems like too much of a coincidence for both of these to have popped up within a week of each-other.
If anyone has any theories or explanations please leave them in the comments, because I’d love to hear them.
