13. So, is there a complete theory?
Answer: Yes, scientists are looking for a “grand unifiend theory” (that they are still searching for). The issue is that such a thing is in contrast to Godel’s theorem. Godel’s theorem has been proven that in “any complete” system, there will be “statements” that “cannot” be found to be either true or false! This theorem is proven, especially when there is “self-reference” (observer being part of the system).
For example, the statement “Patel, the Indian, says that all Indians are liars”! This is neither true nor false – if it is true, then him being an Indian is also a liar – hence this statement is false, which leads to the fact that Indians tell the truth. A paradoxical statement can be found in any system.
With such a proof of “incompleteness” of a complete system, there cannot be a scientific system that can define everything / predict everything. We have to live with approximations in science too & definitely with Astrology too!

PS: Brahmam Okatae, Dwaitamum Sukham / Adwaitamum Sukham, Aham Brahmasmi are closer to truth than science... Well, that is just a personal view... inserted here without any rhyme or reason except sudden whim...
