Abstract
Jordan algebras were first introduced in an effort to restructure quantum mechanics purely in terms of physical observables. In this paper we explain why, if one attempts to reformulate the internal structure of the standard model of particle physics geometrically, one arrives naturally at a discrete internal geometry that is coordinatized by a Jordan algebra.
