    "Eightfold Way, classification of subatomic particles known as hadrons into groups on the basis of their symmetrical properties.."

    Well there are two things I have heard of this. One deals with baryons (protons et al.)

    The other deals with chemistry and the arrangement of electrons in orbital shells.
