Here is some more mind-boggling new quantum theory from Wilczek:

it seems that "any-ons" are sort of sub-particles that tie themselves in knots
and can become bosons (like photons) or fermions (like electrons)
An electron can split up into three anyons,
so it seems the electron is no longer a fundamental particle.
