``` Hello! My name is Ravi Shah and my polygence project is on the Unified Field Theory. I chose to work on this project because I've always been fascinated with the world of quantum physics. I want to be a world-renowned theoretical physicist when I grow up. I want to help society further our knowledge and create a greater future for us and the next generations to come. My goal is to create a research paper on the Unified Field Theory, publish it, submit it to a competition, and present at conferences. ```

Abstract or project description

The greatest challenge facing the world of theoretical physics is unifying gravity with the other three fundamental forces. Three of the four fundamental forces of physics are described within the framework of quantum mechanics and quantum field theory. The current understanding of the fourth force, gravity, is based on Einstein's general theory of relativity, which is formulated within an entirely different framework. It states that objects at the largest scales bend and warp space-time. The problem with general relativity is that it breaks down in the quantum realm. This signals the need for a new theory. A theory which describes gravity at the smallest scales. Some worked-on-theories include string theory, M-theory and loop quantum gravity. While not all of these theories try to reconcile every fundamental force, some like string theory try to unify every fundamental framework. This review paper's intention is to review important concepts in theoretical physics such as relativity, quantum mechanics, quantum field theories, and ultimately come to the unified field theory (UFT).
