The "exceptionally simple theory of everything," proposed by a surfing physicist in , does not hold water, says Emory University mathematician Skip Garibaldi.

Garibaldi did the math to disprove the theory , which involves a mysterious structure known as E8. The resulting paper, co-authored by physicist Jacques Distler of the University of Texas, will appear in an upcoming issue of Communications in Mathematical Physics. Although his paper was not peer-reviewed, and Lisi himself commented that his theory was still in development, the idea was widely reported in the media, under attention-grabbing headlines like "Surfer dude stuns physicists with theory of everything.

Garibaldi was among the skeptics when the theory hit the news. So was Distler, a particle physicist, who wrote about problems he saw with Lisi's idea on his blog.

Distler's posting inspired Garibaldi to think about the issue more, eventually leading to their collaboration. Lisi's paper centered on the elegant mathematical structure known as E8, which also appears in string theory.

First identified in , E8 has dimensions and cannot be seen, or even drawn, in its complete form. The enigmatic E8 is the largest and most complicated of the five exceptional Lie groups, and contains four subgroups that are related to the four fundamental forces of nature: the electromagnetic force; the strong force which binds quarks ; the weak force which controls radioactive decay ; and the gravitational force.

As a leading expert on several of the exceptional Lie groups, Garibaldi felt an obligation to help set the record straight. Using linear algebra and proving theorems to translate the physics into math, Garibaldi and Distler not only showed that the formulas proposed in Lisi's paper do not work, they also demonstrated the flaws in a whole class of related theories.

The problem with 'the theory of everything' is that the way it arranges the chairs in the room makes them non-functional. I feel that there are so many great stories in science, there's no reason to puff up something that doesn't work.

Garrett Lisi’s Theory of Everything!

Sabine Hossenfelder has a typically excellent posting about the paper, and Garrett has been discussing his work with people in the comment section there. Lubos Motl, has a typically, how shall I say, Lubosian posting on the topic. The other idea he likes is that of trying to interpret the fermionic degrees of freedom of the BRST method for handling gauge invariance as providing the fermions of the Standard Model. I suspect there is something to this, but to get anywhere with it, a much deeper understanding of BRST will be required.
