    thanks, hadn’t seen that (and it seems unpublished?) BTW, we do have an entry for Yang-Hui He

    I added a link to an associated talk by Wilson.

    He ends with applications:

    • Perhaps this gives us a better understanding of why the Leech lattice exists.

    • Perhaps it will give us new ways to prove important properties of the Leech lattice and the Conway group.

    • Perhaps we can use octonions to simplify the construction of the Monster.

    • Perhaps it will explain the ‘2-local group’ BDI(4) which contains Co3 and looks as though it should be some kind of twist of ‘skew-symmetric 3×3 matrices over octonions’

    Could one dare to hope that growing the superpoint 0|3\mathbb{R}^{0|3} could make contact with these things?

    added pointer to

    • Piero Truini, Michael Rios, Alessio Marrani, The Magic Star of Exceptional Periodicity (arXiv:1711.07881)

    prodded by today’s

    • Michael Rios, Alessio Marrani, David Chester, Exceptional Super Yang-Mills in D=27+3D=27+3 and Worldvolume M-Theory (arXiv:1906.10709)

    Haven’t absorbed either yet. But if these hold water, I should.
