Speaking of octonions (ahem), has everyone read "An Exceptionally
Simple Theory of Everything"?
The wiki article is at
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/An_Exceptionally_Simple_Theory_of_Everything
and the ArXiv item, 31 pp PDF, I think worth skimming even if not
...any of several relevant difficult specialities...is at
http://arxiv.org/pdf/0711.0770
For those who care about uniting quantuum mechanics with general
relativity via 248-dimensional Exceptional Simple Lie Algebras. Really
it's a nice presentation, obviously more than a little esoteric for
almost anyone, but quite well presented for a quite general audience
all things considered. And that's a lot of all things to consider, I
admit.
