Why would you not expect a theory-of-everything to include the behavior of people?
Note that 'govern' does not imply 'predictable'.
A phisicinst theory of everithing , despite the popular belief, does not "govern" the
behaviour of the people.
What does 'govern' mean to you? constrain? predict? determine?...?
No longer than the binary logic govern the behaviour of computer programs.
Yes, binary logic is not a TOE of computer programs.
I can program in binary logic whatever I want without limitations.
But can you want anything at all?
the wetware whose activity produces the human mind could execute potentially any kind of
behaviour. Our behaviour is not governed by anything related wth a phisical TOE, but by
the laws of natural selection applied to social beings. I can observe the evolution of
such behaviours (in a shchematic way) in a binary world within a computer program as
well. Robert Axelrod
it for the first time.
On the contrary, the antrophic principle tell you that is the mind the determinant
element for the existence of a TOE.
The weak anthropic principle just tells you that the physics must be consistent with the
existence of people - which so far as I can tell doesn't determine it very well.
A phisical TOE It is just the playing field and the stuff upon things are made.
Did I write *physical* TOE?
