Surfer dude stuns physicists with theory of everything

A 39 year-old surfer from Hawaii says he has discovered the elusive "theory of everything" - a theory which weaves together the electromagnetic force, the strong force, the weak force, and even gravity... without string theory... and does so by using only four dimensions.

Further, the theory might make predictions which can be tested, something string theory does not currently do.

What makes this surfer's unlikely theory interesting is that some theoretical physicists are beginning to take note of it. [article]

Yes Garrett Lisi has produced a very interesting paper indeed, it is causing quite a stir!

There is a thread on BAUT about it, if you are interested:

I'll have to read this and compare it with the work that was featured in Scientific American last month.

Thanks for the heads up! :D
