Well, it's a pleasure to meet you! I'm a biologist, but I find this fascinating. I love Wen's work for its playfulness. Some time ago I noticed Wen began to distinguish his work from "old string theory", which meant, reading between the lines, that maybe it was related to new string theory, presumably AdS/CFT! Then last year, I noticed he began drawing lines between tensor networks and AdS/CFT in his final heuristic slide. I look forward to learning more about what you find out!
It's nice to meet you too. Wen is my advisor, and it's very refreshing to be exposed to such different ways of thinking about things as well as being encouraged to do your own thing. I'm sure we'll be able to chat about this stuff more in the future.

PS What kind of biology do you do?
