Do you think that theoretical unification within psychology is feasible?

Yes, theoretical unification within psychology is feasible, but because the field is so 'closed' with numerous limitations, it is unlikely that most will let any new information inside of their holy temples. Educational institutions as we know them are limited. In other words, only certain 'approved' information may enter. Who determines what is taught, studied, and learned at schools? Do you know who the people are that approve certain textbooks and course materials while disapproving others? What criteria do they use to dismiss information for human knowledge?
