## The Third Grothendieck Universe: Clifford Algebra Cl(16) E8 AQFT

**Authors:** Frank Dodd Tony Smith Jr

Completion of union of all tensor products of the real Clifford algebra Cl(16) is proposed as the Third Grothendieck Universe (the first two being the empty set and hereditarily finite sets) thus giving a Category Theoretical description of a realistic Algebraic Quantum Field Theory that has a clear relationship with Path Integral Quantization of Standard Model + Gravity Lagrangian Physics. At present, this paper is an outline of a proposed program of research that is not yet complete. V2 is more explicit about relationships among first, second, and third universes.
