    Admittedly this 'surfer dude' does have a PhD in Physics, but anyway...


    The abstract for his paper is at http://arxiv.org/abs/0711.0770 . For those of you who are of the 'physics persuasion', you can read his theory by following the download links on that page. The abstract itself was enough for me... I understood most of the words and since looking at Wikipedia and reading more articles I understand the basic concept, but after looking at the paper itself, I have no doubt that the math would do my head in!

    For something so grand, I'm guessing that 31 pages is pretty short, really.

    The cool thing about this theory is that it is testable. From his work he is already in the process of calculating the masses of 20 new particles that his work suggests exist. In theory, at least, the new super collider that is being built will be able to test for these particles.

    At this point he says there is still a low chance of his theory being correct but he does believe that the collider will have a better chance of finding his theorised particles than finding various other things suggested by string theory.
