an exceptionally simple theory of everything

I found this linked at digg, which identified the author as "Surfer dude," which may or may not be accurate (though to be fair, he is from Hawaii). It's entitled An Exceptionally Simple Theory of Everything, which also may or may not be true, because it's in Scieo-Speak and I can't make heads or tales of it. The abstract, below, is provided for any rather clever friends of mine to read and tell me what exactly it means, with more and simpler words. At any rate, digg says scientists are all asmitten with it. You can download article at the link. It's like 32 pages or something.

All fields of the standard model and gravity are unified as an E8 principal bundle connection. A non-compact real form of the E8 Lie algebra has G2 and F4 subalgebras which break down to strong su(3), electroweak su(2) x u(1), gravitational so(3,1), the frame-Higgs, and three generations of fermions related by triality. The interactions and dynamics of these 1-form and Grassmann valued parts of an E8 superconnection are described by the curvature and action over a four dimensional base manifold.
