Unifying Physics

Continuing with a physics theme today, below a talk (21 mins.) by unconventional physicist Garrett Lisi on his E8 "theory of everything" or grand unified theory. I don't pretend to understand much of this, but that doesn't prevent me from finding it (particularly the geometry involved) fascinating and beautiful.

The Wikipedia entry for Lisi's theory here (and, no, I don't understand much of this explication either!). :-(
