The suspicion, harbored by many physicists and mathematicians over the decades but rarely actively pursued, is that the peculiar panoply of forces and particles that comprise reality spring logically from the properties of eight-dimensional numbers called “octonions.”
I wonder if Collector harbours similar ideas?
first I have to understand what "eight-dimensional numbers called “octonions.”"
is. I am a simple farmer sitting in my garden waiting for this evening's blood moon eating onions.
why not go stright to sedenions? "Unlike the octonions, the sedenions are not an alternative algebra." wiki
