Why the sudden shift to metaphysical philosophy? Because E8 smacks of alchemy, and yet is potentially a rigorous theoretical model built by mathematicians and interpreted by a [maverick] physicist. It's elegant, can make predictions, and is incredibly difficult to wrap one's mind around. That, and E8 has recently been solved.

Daeriel - do you have any idea what to make of E8?

Thanks! I appreciate it!
Any academic physicist worth anything is going to say it's bunk. Saying a Theory Model of Everything was found is darn close to blasphemy, despite the outward desire for it.

Thanks for looking into it, though. While the physics is the test, the elegance of the math is what I think will really tell if it's worth anything. Until I get a handle on E8, though, I'm going to be left behind on this.
