Roy Michael Moore, a 56-year-old who grew up in Amarillo, said he came to Los Alamos about four years ago for a “very distinct reason”: to get the attention of scientists working on the most complex cosmological problems of the universe and introduce them to his unifying theory.
Mike, as he calls himself, has come to be known as either the “caveman” or the “hermit,” depending on to whom you talk, since he was discovered on Oct. 13 living in a well-appointed cave in a deep, wooded canyon on Los Alamos National Laboratory property.
It’s not enough that he was living in the cave but he also had put in a door and sealed it in with foam insulaltion and had solar cells. It appears that he had been living there for years. If it wasn’t for the massive smoke put out by his stove this time around they would have never found him.
He also had some Marijuana plants growing around his little cave, apparently to help with his research.
