Quantum leap for Einstein's scientific principle This yet more proof they are rapidly closing in on the answers from every direction. This insight is so basic it makes you wonder how people could have missed it all this time. What this means is they can now explore quantum gravity in earnest for the first time ever, and I expect Twistor theory should provide interesting insights as well. Twistor theory was invented not because anyone thought is was a realistic theory, but because they wanted a theory that was extremely different mathematically from the usual run of the mill ones, hoping it would eventually provide unique insights, which it has in dribbles over the years. Combined with the research into quantum fluctuations this approach could easily describe a theory of everything within a few years of examination by physicists and mathematicians, because it can be applied to a wealth of already existing data.
