Symmetry Issues ??

Reportedly, they've found some symmetry issues with Lisi's theory.

"...Unfortunately, the consensus, after investigation, is that it is impossible to use E8 in the way Lisi was hoping and produce a consistent model that reflects reality."


The article linked above is very nearly content-free, and the author has a book to be released in less than two weeks. ...Rolls-eyes... Not a good first impression.

But I'll dig into the Physics Newsgroups (probably the ones linked in previous posts) in the next few weeks and see what I can decipher (if anything).

It'll be interesting to see Lisi's reaction to the consensus.
