Richard Feynman calls re-normalization a way to sweep the difficulties (infinities)of electromagnetics under the rug [1]. If mathematics is the infrastructure and blue print for physical theories and zero and infinity are indispensable portions of mathematics, then we have to open our mind to the possibility that the ultimate theory may not be a finite theory and therefore may very well contain zeros and infinities. Through the act of re-normalization, we have left physics as an open system. An open system by nature cannot contain and conclude the entire function. This kind of approach has left a good portion of reality out of our reach and understanding.
We hesitate to go over the edge of the cliff because we believe, we are not capable of examining or measuring or even comprehend singularities or infinities. Maybe this kind of reasoning is not realistic.

All this is happening despite the fact that we have the appropriate tools to explore zeros and the non-computable. Imaginary numbers were introduced in the 16th century. The nature of complex numbers (a combination of real and imaginary numbers) was gradually constructed and today we have reached a point where we have a much clearer understanding of this system. As a matter of fact complex numbers are now a fundamental part of mathematics and physics at a deeper level. The complex number system can guide us to define zero and infinities in the physical world. That is if we open our scope and imagine a physics that surpasses and goes beyond our space-time realm.

Not only have we not paid heed to the clearly visible road signs, but we have also attempted to cover them up. Theories like Super Gravity, Super Symmetry, Super String and the like, are introduced primarily to cancel out zeros and infinities. In his recent book ”The Trouble with Physics”[2]. Lee Smolin the head researcher at the Perimeter institute for theoretical physics mentions how in the past quarter of century a major break though has been lacking in physics and the main paradoxes are still unsolved. This is despite of the major advances in theoretical physics (such as electromagnetism, Einstein’s relativity theories, Atom’s structure and particle physics, etc…) in the previous quarters of the century. Although, one would expect acceleration or at least the same progressive trend. It has not happened so far.
It seems that remaining in the present framework is halting the progress. The fundamental questions in astrophysics, particle physics and quantum mechanics cannot find answers within the current axioms. We need a new and radical approach to find the way out of the present dead-end. A paradigm shift is needed.

Consciousness

On the other hand, a theory that can only solve the conflicts between two major components of today’s physics, namely General Relativity and Quantum Mechanics, cannot be considered as The Theory of Everything. To be able to claim universality, such a theory must also explain the emergence of life and the mystery of mind. With the advancement of Science the old dilemma between consciousness being a fundamental entity or the product of the brain function has reached new horizons.

In addition, spirituality remains an orphan that has been left aside by science and being sponsored by clergies. Lacking scientific scrutiny and prisoned by rigidity of the religions, it has long been facing a dead-end. As a matter of fact, its outdated religious framework creates major clashes and destructions in today’s human societies. A complete revision and major overhaul of fundamental beliefs of spirituality is long overdue. A new framework is needed.
Next I will start this venture by offering a fundamental theory utilizing intuitions derived from investing the perception proper. With the belief that cause and effect are parts of one system and by reviewing our only tool of comprehension (perception) we should be able to collect evidences which guide us to obtain a deeper understanding of reality.
