Is there an 8-dimensional "engine" behind our universe? Join Marion Kerr on a fun, visually exciting journey as she explores a mysterious, highly complex structure known simply as 'E8'—a weird, 8-dimensional mathematical object that for some, strange reason, appears to encode all of the particles and forces of our 3-dimensional universe.
Meet surfer and renowned theoretical physicist Garrett Lisi as he rides the waves and paraglides over the beautiful Hawaiian island of Maui and talks about his groundbreaking discovery about E8 relates deeply to our reality; and learn why Los Angeles based Klee Irwin and his group of research scientists believe that the universe is essentially a 3-dimensional "shadow" of this enigmatic... thing... that may exist behind the curtain of our reality.

“Why are you unhappy? Because 99.9 percent of everything you think, and of everything you do, is for yourself — and there isn’t one.”
Is free will 'compatible with what we know about the laws of nature'? This physicist says no
Ever wonder what would happen if we got sucked into a black hole? Turns out we could live in it — if it was big enough.
The first step towards an ontological comprehension of physics consists in the rediscovery of what we term the corporeal domain, which is basically the perceptible, beginning with the visual.
consciousness is a fundamental quality of the cosmos, and that what we call the material world emerges from it.
How the perception of time and what is considered "now" unfolds in the brain
So-called “higher symmetries” are illuminating everything from particle decays to the behavior of complex quantum systems.
