You may know all the rules of chess but that does not mean you know what
all the complex interactions those rules could lead to, and that is why you
are not a chess grandmaster despite knowing the rules of the game. And even
if a Theory of Everything existed and even if every high school student
understood it that would still not be the end of science because all the
initial conditions would still need to be found, and even more important
all the astronomically, possibly infinitely, large number complex
interactions would also be unknown.  I don't see how a Theory of Everything
would help you much in meteorology or biology or poetry, those things are
too complex for that approach.
