On the science of everything

Theories in physics are expressed in mathematical language and the
predications derived from them are very much like the axioms and
theorems derived in Euclidean geometry. The theories exist independent
of the creator of the theory. Of course, the nature of that existence is
itself puzzling, viz., does it exist in conscious minds only or
somewhere else. In any case, the creator of the theory can extricate
himself/herself from the content of the theory.

The fundamental question is if life and consciousness can be made part
of a theory in the same sense as the objects studied in physics. Is such
a successful theory necessarily materialistic, i.e., purely physical. It
seems rather difficult to conceive of a theory that explains the very
conscious and rational entity that is doing the theorizing. Is the need
for a Creator, or ID, a necessary logical component of such a successful
description of the whole of reality?
