Actually the simplest potential model of our universe I know of is mine [was I first with this idea?] which I have posted on before. It is just a discrete point space where the points are confined to regions arranged on a face centered cubic grid and particles are just dances of these points.

I say a neutrino does not have a rest mass. It is a photon, like a very high energy gamma ray photon. I have seen photos of a neutrino collision in a neutrino trap. From the look of all the resulting ionization tracks, it must have had a lot more energy than 40 ev. I say the energy of
