The octonions are the largest of the four normed division algebras. The author describes them and their relation to Clifford algebras and spinors, Bott periodicity, projective and Lorentzian geometry, Jordan algebras, and the exceptional Lie groups.

With a degree of exaggeration, modern physics is the physics of harmonic oscillators and two-by-two matrices. Indeed, they constitute the basic language for the symmetry problems in physics, and thus the main theme of this journal.
