Here you will find material related to my rebuttal of Eric Weinstein‘s proposal for a “Theory of Everything” known as Geometric Unity. This affair has been more interesting from a sociological perspective than from a scientific one, and it provides a case study for several dilemmas of our era, including the power that social media platforms have to shape the public perception of science and the ways in which those who wish to challenge the establishment are unwilling to be challenged themselves.
