Shout Out to My Mathematical Peeps

The universe as explained by math, via The Economist and Garrett Lisi:

The geometry he has been studying is that of a structure known to mathematicians as E8, which was first recognised in 1887 by Sophus Lie, a Norwegian mathematician. E8 is a monster. It has 248 dimensions and its structure took 120 years to solve. It was finally tamed earlier this year, when a group of mathematicians managed to construct a map that describes it completely.

I wish they had a picture though. Cos if there's a map, I want one.
