Exploring theoretical physics, consciousness, Ai, and God in a technically rigorous manner. If you'd like to support this endeavor, then please visit the Patreon ( https://patreon.com/curtjaimungal ). Thank you for your charitable and kindhearted support.

My name's Curt Jaimungal, a Torontonian with a degree in mathematical physics from the University of Toronto and I analyze various Theories of Everything from this analytic perspective, though more and more opening up to alternative approaches. The separating factor of TOE from other podcasts is its focus on depth even at the risk of limiting the audience due to how much detail we delve into subjects. Paralleling the intensity found in academic discourse, we're increasingly embracing a spectrum of unconventional ideas to conduct research during this podcast, rather than merely conveying existing information.

    The (Simple) Theory That Explains Everything | Neil Turok

    Neil Turok joins Curt Jaimungal and Theories of Everything to discuss his new hypothesis regarding the origins of the universe, building on Stephen Hawking's geometrical model to propose a theoretical approach that avoids the singularity at the Big Bang by suggesting a minimal, mirror universe scenario without requiring inflation.

One of the great thinkers of our generation.

I like that this host simply asks questions and lets our best minds give their answers.

The questions he poses are deep with a lot of complexity and subtlety and yet are always spot on.

I’ve listened to two of his podcasts so far, Lee Smolin and Stephen Wolfram.

Wolfram speaks with such authority on every topic and you can tell he’s thought about it for so long and yet the host poses questions simple but deep questions where you can literally hear the gears in Mr. Wolfram’s head begin to strip as he grapples with the weight of the question.

It’s the most amazing thing I’ve ever seen and I’ve seen a lot.

Incredible podcast

Heartbreak to hear that TOE has had any troubles staying afloat or has been taken advantage of by advertisers. I personally love the content of this podcast and Curt’s honesty and his obvious passion for physics.
Keep it up please TOE

Science and philosophy without dogma!

Curt has the bold curiosity and intellectual honesty that is so absent in most of the world. It’s so refreshing to hear deep scientific and philosophical topics discussed with such open mindedness and aversion dogma.
