I think we could be close to a theory of everything with Verlinde's theory of gravity as an entropic force that's connected to quantum information.
This is how I see the timeline of the universe.
1. I think there's one energy source or singularity of energy that can never be in a state of collapse because there's nothing outside of this zero
point energy. Energy radiates from this energy source and this energy produces particle pair production.
2. Particles and antiparticles collide causing a fireworks display of epic proportions. This explosion pushes some of the particle-antiparticle pairs
apart. When these particles pairs are separated by at least a planck's length then inflation occurs. A quantum bit of information occurs at this level
of space. You can see these fluctuations in the Cosmic Microwave Background.
3. This quantum information gives rise to gravity. As the universe expands the matter in the universe seeks equilibrium and therefore tries to
maximize it's entropy. This force that maximizes entropy at macroscales is gravity.
It's amazing to think that the universe and everything in it came from a fluctuation of planck length space that went through a period of inflation
which caused matter to become ordered as gravity tried to maximize it's entropy as space expands.
