He is a proponent of balance between scientific research and enjoyment of the outdoors.Lisi is known for "An Exceptionally Simple Theory of Everything," a paper proposing a unified field theory based on the E8 Lie group, combining particle physics with Einstein's theory of gravitation. The theory is incomplete and has unresolved problems. The theory has been extensively criticized in the scientific community.

    Physics Leaving Academia While Still Contributing to Physics Research

    There is a Theoretical Physicist by the name of Garret Lisi. He gave a ted Talk on one of his unified physics theories that received a lot of attention. The reason why I am bringing him up is because he left academia after he finished his phd and moved to Maui. During his time there he found...

    A The Inner Space of Garrett Lisi's E8 Theory

    Hi :) Does the 'inner space' and 'inner particle physics' which Mr. Lisi refers to in his TED Talk at Maui in 2013 refer to the 8 dimensional maximal tori within E8 and how they function? TED Talk at Maui in 2013 (video): Thanks.

    Is there any news to Garrett Lisi theory?

    I know there is nothing around, that I could find. I checked his tweeter and page and found nothing. So, do any of you know of anything ? https://www.physicsforums.com/insights/interview-theoretical-physicist-garrett-lisi/

    Garrett Lisi, the skill level of physicists, & multiverse/holographic theories Okay, so after 2 times of firefox crashing and me loosing my whole 1 hour long versions of my topic (2 hours wasted fyi lol) here it is in the express version. Two questions. Both have to do with Garrett Lisi...

    Have you tried the E8 t-shirt by Garrett Lisi?

    A friend of mine bought me the E8 t-shirt that Garrett Lisi has listed on his site. When I wear it, I feel that I can solve anything. lol Anybody else got one? Matt

    If I were Garrett Lisi, I'd postdoc at Nottingham

    A deepset culture bias says that too much limelight destroys scholars. The tradition goes back to monastery roots or even earlier. We expect scholars to withdraw to a quiet place: labor in the scriptorium and meditate in the monastery garden. I know (my culture prepares me to expect) that...
