E8

– a bit of it anyway!

LOL. :D

end of update.

For the semi-mathematically inclined among you (the Maths boffins will probably already know this), earlier this year, one of the most potentially signifiant mathematical puzzles was solved. Although the last great mathematical puzzle (Fermat’s conjecture or Fermat’s last conjecture) wasn’t solved for about 350 years until 1995, this one has less longevity, but its potential to be far more significant.

P.S. Kudos also to (not forgetting Grigori Perelman’s breakthrough of the Poincare conjecture, but that too, like Fermat’s, does not hold the potential for any near-time  tangeable advancements)

Anyway, the breakthrough was the completion of the characterization of E8, pictorally represented above. E8 could be described as inter-related description of the most complex symmetry we currently know of. It is useful beause Mathematicians and Physicists believe the descriptions within E8 are found throughout the universe, and could well be the relationship by which the very universe itself utilizes. Superstrings were herelded as being powerful proposals on which the Universe could be theorized, but it seems that superstrings are just a subset of E8 and most crucially of all, E8 could very well  act as the grand unifier of the 4 fundamental forces, Gravity, Electromagentism, Strong and Weak forces. It has been put forward as being able to yield what some believe are the last remaining ‘particles’ awaiting discovery.

No scientist has yet been regognised as managing to unify the four forces (although there is at least one hot candidate forit right now), so really, it is possibly the greatest scientific breakthrough ever! (yeah, I know, until the next one that is)

 OK, ok ok…  I just want to share with you the most sublime and funny comment I have ever seen regarding such a potentially monumental breakthough, from an online commentator…

Hmm. That E8 diagram has a line missing.”

    I’m not scared by GUT. In fact, to me, it’s affirmation of what I’ve been guided to conclude, and what others have concluded for thousands of years: God is the Grand Unifier and it’s certainly not a theory.

    In fact GUT is just a reinvention of the Wheel, well, actually to be more accurate, GUT is really an alternative wheel re-forging with has the aim of trying and replace God or relegate God (the metaphysical) to a set of physical phenomenon and the occasional computer visualisation.

    Science is portrayed as flawless (Just ignore Godel, Heisenberg etc etc) and spun to the nth degree to transform supposition into unbreakable laws (ones not the purview of God).

    Nonetheless, it’s ever interesting to see them try and apply their eraser to God.
