Both quantum mechanics and general relativity are the same things working on different scales of the universe with things of different properties. Look at it like this, when they are combined it is like an exhaust surrounding a car, it is foggy but still possible to see. Also both are needed in looking at particles comparing to something such as a grain of salt, they are so small but at the same time massive.
The disconnect between the two leading theories in physics will someday be reconciled, even if this new equation is not the answer. The fact is, quantum mechanics has been a theoretical branch of physics with very little ability to actually test particle movements until only recently. But now with the Hadron collider in Geneva, Switzerland, scientists now have the ability to put their theories to test.
Quantum mechanics already describes in microcosm how the theory of general relativity works. Rather than existing as competing theories, quantum mechanics is growing out of Einstein's work explaining the nature of matter and energy, making quantum physics both subset and an umbrella for Einstein's proofs. Einstein's famous equation E=mc2 assumes that his theories operate on a quantum level first.
Everything in the universe is connected and the key to unification is to find the commonality among seemingly different concepts. Using the idea of a wormhole, physicists can connect the concepts of gravity and quantum mechanics. This connection links together general relativity to quantum mechanics and can show that these two theories essentially describe the same thing.
It's easy to say things and get them published online, it's quite another to actually do the work. Once I actually see this equation and it gets reviewed by the people who do this sort of thing for a living, only then will I believe that it's possible. If true, this is huge news.
