TRACKING WITH CLOSEUPS: Wolfram Physics Project: One-Year Video Status Report

I have written earlier here about Stephen Wolfram's breathtakingly ambitious and, if successful, profoundly important project to discover a fundamental theory of physics which underlies what he (and I) suspect to be the effective theories (such as quantum mechanics and general relativity) we have found to describe phenomena which emerge from this much simpler substrate. Here is a four hour deep dive into the goals of the project and progress so far, most of which simply consists of Stephen Wolfram talking into the camera. This is an excellent introduction to the concepts of the project and work to date.
