Details: I will present a new way to envision the particles and interactions. Any chart or mnemonic device should be an invitation to narrative and a spur to curiosity, and that is what I intend for the double simplex. My goal is to represent what we know is true, what we hope might be true, and what we donít know--in other terms, to show the connections that are firmly established, those we believe must be there, and the open issues. I want also to express the spirit of play, of successive approximations, that animates the way scientists work.
