Antony Garrett Lisi, a theoretical physicist unaffiliated with any major university (and for sensationalism purposes, also a surfer dude), recently proposed a Grand Unified Theory that he called An Exceptionally Simple Theory of Everything. Based on the E8 Lie Group, this unified field theory claims to unify all known fundamental interactions.

    Web Surfing and Tim Berners Lee??

    Though I haven’t really seen his bald pictures, they share some resemblance.

    A. Representation of E_8 Lie algebra.
    B. Surfer.
    C. Garrett Lisi.

    Garrett Lisi, a surfer unaffiliated with any major university, came up with a ‘Theory of Everything’ sometime last year, which uses E_8 structures.

  3. The E8 pattern which inspired surfer Garret Lisi’s thoery of the universe…

    PS: Hey, I see that my alter ego Vinayak K is still out there!

    grand unified theory/theory of everything – the dude shown in the 3rd image is a physicist and also a surfer (surfer dude). He proposes a grand unified theory of physics (unifying the 4 fundamental forces) – he used something called the E8 group, which has a complex dimension of 248. A visualization of E8 is shown in the first image.

    Surfing the Web.

    taking a wild guess here, but the guy is associated with Usenet, where the phrase originated.
