    I made a facetious comment about stupid vacuum.
    It was Einstein’s point, no unifield theory is true unless it is simple enough for discrete elements of a vacuum to implement. So, the theory of Lie groups is fine for humans, it does not help the vacuum make the world. The questions asked on the unified theory seem to be asked in units of ‘what would a simple vacuum do’ which was Einstein’s question. The responses are always, what would a human to to make the engineering approximations of nature work.

    The vacuum, by the way, packs spheres. All of physics is derivable from that concept, we can even derive Lie groups from the concept. But you have to start with what the vacuum does, not what the physicist does.
