We know our current theory is a patchwork, not a TOE. This doesn't
mean that each patch is extremely accurate in its area of applicability.
It's not obvious a TOE will be particularly practical. Just as
people do fine with Newton most of the time, and never apply
relativistic corrections. There seems to be a trend that higher
level theories require overproportional amount of computation to
produce results easily computable with lesser theories.
