If we look at history of physics, is there a clear trend to allow us to guess its future?

What are the major milestones in physics history?

I think it could be said:

1) Ancient Greece (level) Physics

2) Galileo (level) Physics

3) Newton (level) Physics

4) Einstein (level) Physics

5) TOE (level) Physics(?)

I think there is indeed a clear trend if you think about it.

Each new revolution in physics brings something like an order of magnitude increase in complexity of math (calculations), not just a new theory.

So I would guess doing calculations to solve physics problems using TOE will be practically impossible using pen and paper only.

I think it will require a (quantum) computer.

(Realize that all physics problems (where answer is possible) can be solved today using non-quantum (super) computers/calculators/pen&paper.)

I think if Universe (or Reality) turns out to be a Cellular Automata design running on an ND matrix qubit (register) quantum computer (with Planck scale cells)

then it would fit into above guess about future of physics (TOE) perfectly.
