ATON is a hopefully evolving classification theory. It aspires to unify knowledge around numbers and prefers naive methods. Some of the older posts are wrong but I'll keep them for the sake of continuity.

A basic classification of the universe can be derived from the Ideal Gas equation;

P*V = k*N*T

where k is the Boltzmann constant. It is one of the most fundamental constants of physics. The 4 thermodynamic variables can be mapped to the most universal categories of physics;

P: (Energy,Moomentum)
V: (Time, Spaace)
N: (Mass,Charge)
T: (Gravity,Boson)


Moomentum = (Momentum,Angular-Momentum,Spin)
Spaace = (Distance,Area,Volume)
Charge = (Electric,Weak,Strong)
Boson = (Light,Weak,Gluon)

The overall 4ness is reflected within each subcategory giving 4*4 = 16 subcategories. It is a mixture of (1,3) and (2,2) symmetries, inside and outside.

Where are the Higgs Boson, Dark Matter and Dark Energy? I think they are in k. They are the fields that the rest float on. They may even make a quartet, predicting another field;


to make 5 categories and 20 subcategories in all.

Where are the Black Hole and the rest? I think they make another quartet;


Thus making 6 categories and 24 subcategories. I had a yarn before about the specialness of the number 6. 24 is also a very special number. It is one of John Baez's favorite numbers.

If all listed together in a certain order, the symmetry simplifies somehow;

(Time, Distance,Area,Volume)

There is deep symmetry to it with many aspects, each reflecting a mathematical property of 24, starting with the simple arithmetic ones like;

4*6 = 2*2*2*3 = 2*12 = 3*8
