2007 has not been a prime year
Let me prove that with my trusty calculator:
2007 ÷ 3 = 669
669 ÷ 3 = 223
223 ÷ 3 = 74.33r
If you understand that, then you may do better than I in grasping Garrett Lisi's theory which has been laid out in an online paper
entitled "An Exceptionally Simple Theory of Everything".
Basically, it's all to do with what happens when a gluon hits a quark.A quark has a quantum property called a colour charge (labelled red, green or blue), which changes under the influence of the strong force carried by a gluon. Garrett Lisi has shown that the hexagonal G2 pattern correctly predicts the relationship between quarks (or anti-quarks) and the strong force.

For example, I bet you didn't know that it is not uncommon that a novice could overlook the contributions of others as is the case with Garrett Lisi’s paper “An exceptionally simple Theory of Everything.” A recent paper published in Elsevier Science Direct Journal called Chaos, Solitons and Fractals, an interdisciplinary Journal for Nonlinear Dynamics, Quantum and Nanotechnology entitled “From E8 to E-Infinity” wraps it all up. In this paper, an Egyptian, M. S. El Naschie shows an incredible connection between the total sum of all exceptional Lie symmetry groups dimension 548 and the inverse electromagnetic fine structure coupling 548/4 = 137.
In addition, the Egyptian concluded, following earlier work by Freeman Dyson, that the maximum number of elementary particles at the energy scale of the standard model is a maximum of half the inverse value. That means approximately 69 particles. The theory of E-Infinity is at least 15 years old and it is based on a new irrational quasi-binary system utilizing the miraculous properties of the golden mean and the Fibonacci numbers within this system (2)(248) = 496 of E8 E8 is reduced to 496-(0.18033989) = 495.9674775 while 137 is increased to 137.08203932.
These small differences make a big difference and are behind the success of E-Infinity theory.
Quite, but I've got my own theory; what I think is that in between his surfing, snowboarding and quarking, Dr. Lisi is a big fan of sculptress Jennifer Maestre
. Her work is exceptionally and similarly deceptively simple and she must use a lot of gluon her pencil stubs.
