Posted:I admit when I first read the headline I thought it was a cross-post from the Onion, but it's for reals. I haven't yet read the paper this article refers to, but am looking forward to doing so.

Posted:to be honest man, it doesn't sound that much more sane than string theory or M theory, from what i can gather at least.. both of those come closer to science fiction than physics.

its cool tho that its just some surfer dude, and not a hot-shot scientist

Posted:Interesting article. It reminds me of a joke;
A string theorist is having sex with his mistress when his wife walks in.
"It's ok" he says, "I can explain everything!"

Think ill go search E8 on scientific americas site.

Posted:... which explains everything.

Apart from him whining over his financial status, I find him a sympathetic figure and living proof that there is insight to be encountered anywhere.

I have yet to look through it, but it should be interesting.
