Why would you not expect a theory-of-everything to include the
behavior of people? Note that 'govern' does not imply 'predictable'.

What do you mean by 'govern' does not imply 'predictable'?

In chaos theory processes are not predictable although they are 'governed' by deterministic equations. And quantum mechanics is 'governed' by unitary evolution in Hilbert space and the Born rule - but it's not even deterministic. M-theory is a quantum-mechanical theory. So to say that everything is 'governed' by M-theory doesn't tell you that everything is predictable.
