The Big Idea: Roger Highfield explains why Garrett Lisi, the surfer who drew up a ‘theory of everything’ to explain the universe, is a great role. In November of , physicist Garrett Lisi published an online paper entitled “An Exceptionally Simple Theory of Everything.” Lisi spent much. Garrett Lisi has a new paper, “An Exceptionally Simple Theory of Everything.” Many people seem to think that I should have an opinion about it.

Sadly, I have heard remarks like this very often. The point of some people here continues to be to attack credibility everytthing not to have a scientific discussion. B, I am very sorry for my gender-ist assumption.

If the embedding of Tjeory 2,C in the noncompact real form of G is related by Wick rotation to an embedding of Spin 4 in the compact real form of G, then R is nonchiral. Can it ever be true for a real rep? Although I am skeptical about this, everythhing does not seem obviously wrong. Collins Recent Articles Projects in Profusion: Garrett’s Model is as close as you can get to DOA.

Partly, because Lisi claimed to evrything found the answer to probably the most important question in science: And this involves, in particular, just ignoring what we think is condescendent, or arrogant, instead of replying in the same way like a lot of people seem to do on blogs unfortunately. Seans original post is right on target imo.

It seems to me that whenever you are not able to comment on anything, fverything just hide your tails by sounding like voice of Smolin represents you. Communications in Mathematical Physics. But for that, there are genious people like Sean, who happen to explain that kind of stuff for a broader but interested audience in a very nice way.

Let me put a disclaimer first that I am not a string theorist.

Since you have stated unequivocally, that you have no interest in the substance of the discussion at hand, I, in turn, will state unequivocally that I have no interest in your advice on the form that discussion should take. My colleague has shown no remorse, and has not changed his views or his ways.

And when I made correct points which were not rebutted, the same people just pile up even more insults. That should give a clue about the universal reference frame, and not objects relative to one another, etc. I wrote a very carefully worded paper explaining these.

In response to Distler and Garibaldi’s paper, Lisi argued in a new paper, “An Explicit Embedding of Gravity and the Standard Model in E 8 “, [8] peer reviewed and published in a conference proceedingsthat Distler and Garibaldi’s assumptions about fermion embeddings are incorrect and that the antigeneration is not by itself a problem sufficient to rule out the one-generation Standard Model.

The complete pattern of all Standard Model particle charges in four dimensions may be projected down to two dimensions and plotted in a charge diagram. Some or all of these may be dark matter candidates. Unfortunately this is not the first time myself and other people who see a value in being fair minded have tried to have a constructive debate with Distler, HIGGS and others of their posse of anonymous detractors.

Please sign in to add a comment. The degree evetything which I fail to care whether Mr. The story circulated and quickly achieved widespread notoriety even my dentist asked me about it. I thought at the time that we can have some generalized group meeting going, where people at all levels, and at different locations, can participate in the many entangled conversations that result from garrwtt interesting blog post. But, for any embedding of SL 2,C in the noncompact real form, which is related by Wick rotation to an embedding of Spin 4 in the compact real form, this never happens.

Actually, to find the noncompact real forms, you need to classify Riemannian symmetric spaces. This means that I cannot take very seriously people who claim to be interested in an issue and yet, in spite of the abundant time on their hands that their blogging participation shows, do not take the time to read a paper that presents new results relevant to the issue under discussion.

He is now trying to use axions theoretical particles proposed by the Nobel laureate Frank Wilczek to describe how particles get their masses. Whether or garretr Lee comes back, I would appreciate some informed comment on the construction in his paper, as mentioned in comments 82 and But E8 is not a superalgebra, and has only commuting generators.


Let us also define a chirally invariant theory as one in which, after writing all fermions as left-handed Weyl fermions, the fermions lsi in a real representation of the gauge group. Here are straight questions that have nothing to do with sociology or whether people are nasty or not. Note that complex conjugation does not change the SU 2 rep because the 2 is pseudo-real. Can we blame gartett for believing it?

Unfortunately, there is a long tradition otherwise in the USA physics community, going back at least around 50 years to the time Oppenheimer as head of IAS said of Bohm: I believe you will find the exercise revelatory.

During this dinner, she must garrett made note of me, because two months later there was an email from a reporter asking for an interview. I advised every journalist I communicated with to delay writing about this until the paper could be digested by experts, to some of them I suggested waiting a year.

Smolin and Lisi at least are skeptical in case they are wrong. It is simply not there! Garrett has post only once here clarifying his relations with media, and this seems to be a smart thing to do.

Please do the same. I first picked up on the waves this unlikely figure was making in the scientific community when I read an article in New Scientist by Zeeya Merali. We hope that the research proves fruitful! I agree with much of what you say, but your comparing of the hyping of Lisi with brilliant young string theorists is a sick joke. There is now a proposed mathematical argument stating that the proposal, in the form thsory, is mathematically incorrect.

And I find it simply incomprehensible that anyone who had respect for others in the scientific community and pride in their own reputation would attack other scientists from behind theoy veil of anonymity.
