I think we should clarify our views. If we are talking about a one grand unification principle, what we are saying that this one principle is responsible for everything that exists. On the other hand, if this grand unity principle is the principle of symmetry, then it yields no universe itself because you need broken symmetries (and a few other things, but that's another story).

First we start with a principle, this yields multiple principles, and then we have scalar fields, false vacuums, whatever else. If the first principle doesn't yield other key principles and concepts, then this is a problem.

Warm regards, Harv
