For the last few years, My friend worked on figuring out the "theory of everything". She is afraid of sharing her theory with well known physicists, because she doesn't want other people to take credit for her idea. So, my here's what I'm wondering:
1) What is the best way for her to validate her theory with experienced physicists? and
2) If the theory ends up being worth publishing, how can she go about publishing it considering the fact that she has no reputation in the field at the moment?
