This will then be fully capable of producing the true universal equation of motion of the unified fields as a whole in a single package (including the electromagnetic Lorentz equation of motion and the chromodynamic Yang-Mills equation of motion) and the nature of pure geometric motion -- kinemetricity--of the cosmos will be revealed.
Such questions are explored throughout 'It Must be Beautiful', which manages to present subjects like the Planck-Einstein equation, the general theory of relativity and less familiar formulae like the Yang-Mills equation in an accessible and interesting way.
