One nice feature of Tony Smith's theory is that particle interactions are
by the octonion multiplication table.

Your theory presumably explains these same particle interactions, by a

Therefore, if we could isolate the part of your theory that explains
particle interactions,
we would be able to map the octonions onto your theory.

I.e., every theory that explains
the particle interactions covered by the Standard Model ~implicitly~ has
octonions in it;
the question is whether it's worth making this explicit or not
