TOE, The Theory of Everything, the holy grail of physics. The broken symmetries are a subject for an entirely different thread and perhaps an entirely different forum. Check out the work being done on string theory, SU sub 3 (as I can't write subscript with this program) the Eightfold Path, theoretical physics in general. I am not purporting to understand it completely myself. Much is far beyond my poor capabilities but I do grasp the concepts and what it means philosophically and epistemologically. Boiled down it means that the more we know the more we realize how little we know. It also means that every now and then a paradigm of scientific understanding gets turned over and the scientific community is confronted with a major overhaul of their basic assumptions. As Alice said, "Curiouser and curiouser!"
