    Does anyone here have any information as to the contents of the presentation recently given by Eric Weinstein in Oxford on his "Geometric Unity" hypothesis ?

    http://www.simonyi.ox.ac.uk/simonyi-...eric-weinstein

    I would be interested in getting some idea what his hypothesis is actually about. I read an article about it somewhere, and it did sound interesting, but there were no real details given.

    Thanks a million !

    Your link is not bringing anything up!
    Bodies attract each other at near distances,the convergence is inevitable. A fundamental,subtle spirit which lies hide in all gross bodies.(Newtonian gravity)

    Yes, it would appear that the link is no longer working.
    In any case, from the feedback I have gotten on other sites it seems that this is just another hypothesis without any real substance.

    There are lot of hypotheses without much substance that are reported in the popular press. Reporters tend to take any new speculation and hype it up without much thought or justification. Science reporting is, in general, rather poor.

    Remember that almost all new hypotheses will be wrong. That is just the nature of things. There are very, very few revolutions in science. It is unusual for even a spectacular scientists to have more that one really good and productive idea. There are some exceptions -- Bardeen, Einstein, and a few others. Most don't even have one of the caliber reflected in Nobel prizes (which is why the prize is a big deal).

    But the only way to produce a good idea is to have lots of ideas and separate the good ones from the bad ones. What seems to be reported are ALL of the new ideas, with little regard for the eventual sifting process. That makes for good press, but not so good science.

    It is a fairly good bet, on an actuarial basis, to assume that any new and revolutionary idea that you see in the press will be shown to be wrong (remember superluminal neutrinos ?). But from time to time you will lose that bet and there will be progress in science. Just remember that science progresses in small steps, refining and extending our knowledge but not knocking over the apple cart, and there are very few, if any, major quantum jumps.

    If you try to chase every news story you will drive yourself crazy, to no good end.

    Geometric Unity is outlined in these three papers

    A new way to think about time leads to a connection between GR and QM. Einstein's equations and the fien structure constant derived from one simple principle. Tempus Edax Rerum (vixra.org/abs/1209.0010)

    A new and improved cosmological model is presented. A flaw in the ADM positive definiteness theorem is identified and a major outstanding issue in Kaluza theory is resolved. Geometric Cosmology (vixra.org/abs/1301.0032)

    The new model predicts the structure of the standard model. A unique experimental prediction is derived. Quantum Structure (vixra.org/abs/1302.0037)
