# Exponentially Nothing and Exponentially Everything

Consider a wavy, two-dimensional surface,

with many different spheres glued to its purpose

—one sphere at each surface point,

and each sphere attached by another joint.

This geometric construction is a fiber bundle,

with the spheres as the “fibers,” and the wavy surface as the “base.”

This is what holds everything you know to be in place.

A sphere can be rotated in three-dimensional space:

around the x-axis, the y-axis, or around the z-axis.

Each of these rotations corresponds to a symmetry

the fiber bundle connection is a field describing

how spheres at nearby surface points are colliding.

The geometry of the fiber bundle is described by

the curvature of these infinite connections.

In the corresponding quantum field theory,

these particles interact according to

**YOUR**queries.

November 9, 2009dude, i watched 2 seconds of that video, and it was like everything i’ve been looking for, is this your poem or a quote? either way it’s awesome, i love this stuff. now i’m going to sit down with a cup of coffee and watch that whole vid..

November 9, 2009Thanks Akbar. I thought of your last post and how it illustrates statistically that there are people just like me. That we are not all unique. I like the facts behind exponential growth. I think it’s amazing but the truth is no matter what, there will always be only one you or me.

Then I started digging to find something that paralleled those thoughts. I found it on TED Talks in the presentation linked to above by Garrett Lisi, and enjoyed how he basically takes the most basic of geometry and uses it to define the entire universe. This to me makes more sense than the various theories such as string theory, etc.

The E8 Theory is not very well received these days by string theorists. String theorists are up in arms it would seem as many of them have built their careers on string theory alone. Just a couple of decades string theorists had the same reaction to their theory. Garret Lisi is a surfer with a P.h.D. in physics who lives in a van on the beach. Instead of taking an academic position he has become an independent researcher.

If you look at the image for his model, E8 has dimension 248, it so closely resembles mandalas that have existed throughout the history of mankind which I find remarkable. The E8 model was developed with the use of sacred geometry using the golden ratio that mankind has used for thousands of years in its art and architecture. The golden ratio, geometric ratios, and geometric figures were often employed in the design of Egyptian, ancient Indian, Greek and Roman architecture.

The poem was written by me. I used the Wikipedia on E8 Theory to collage it all together. Glad you got something out of it. Your post lead me down this path so I must thank you for that.

November 10, 2009Here’s A. Garrett Lisi’s Paper, An Exceptionally Simple Theory of Everything. I had no idea how beautiful formulas can be even though I have no idea what they mean.
