The Megatron?

If we could imagine a "meta-particle", a little like the zygote that grows into all the different cells of the body - a mega-particle from which all others are formed... It would have to be something amazing, and, in its way, almost perfect - at least containing all the possibilities available in that space. And this is a lovely contender. 
E8 Lie Group

This is an awesome explanation of some of interesting aspects on the outer/inner reaches of reality. In order to understand this idea, one has to pass through the portals of nothing & infinity, through multi- dimensional geometry to arrive at the E8 lie group, a quasi-crystal that expresses an 8th dimensional reality in a 3d language. Weird, huh?

Well, this weirdness might become a serious contender in the understanding of the basic component of our reality, now that string theory is losing some of its bluster.

A final footnote, in the Sefer Yetzirah, "The Book of Creation", a seminal Kabbalistic book attributed to Abraham, our forefather, in a translation by R' Aryeh Kaplan, who, by the way was also a physicist, he derives a similar structure through completely connecting the 231 gates of consciousness from the Tree of Life.
