## Theory Overview

Knot Physics is a unification theory that describes all physical phenomena using a branched spacetime manifold that is embedded in a Minkowski 6-space.

### Beyond the Standard Model

Manifold topology and geometry result in particles: elementary **fermions** are topological defects in the manifold, and elementary **bosons** are geometric features of the manifold.

The spacetime manifold has constraints but is under-constrained; thus, the behavior of the spacetime manifold is random with respect to its degrees of freedom. Entropy maximization results in the dynamics of all physical phenomena, including **quantum mechanics** and all **forces**.

Fermion geometry allows a derivation of the **fine structure constant** from first principles with no fine tuning. The estimate is accurate to 0.1%. Calculation of additional Feynman diagrams may result in additional accuracy.

The theory also includes a candidate for **dark matter** that does not depend on a new particle and a natural explanation for **dark energy**.
