... Bohm and Hiley generalized the twistor idea to Clifford algebra as a possible basis for describing Bohm's "implicit order" (Bohm, 1984). Recently various spin foams have been formulated as extensions to Penrose's spin networks for the purpose of constructing a consistent theory of quantum gravity (Smolin, 2002). In recent years there has been much progress in understanding the topological phases of matter. ...
