Garett Lisi: A beautiful unified theory.

25 10 2008

Nomadic surfer-dude, Garett Lisi, who caused quite a stir in the theoretical physics community last year, explains his geometric theory of everything which predicts 20 new elementary particles (226 are known) some of which scientists are hoping The Large Hadron Collider will reveal and verify his theory.  His work is based on the complex 248 dimensional E8 polytope, which is widely considered to be the most beautiful structure in mathematics. (It is also worth noting that people have mentioned that he is a Burner and has a special fondness for LSD, which, while I have not found him to proclaim in any interviews, would surprise me if the case were otherwise.)
