I beleive so, it is directly modeled after the Buddhist Eightfold Path.

For anyone interested in reading the history of this stuff, and the characters involved in it, there are some great books on the subject.

"Strange Beauty" by George Johnson is the bio of the afore mentioned Gell-Mann, talking both about him and the research.
"The Inflationary Universe" by Alan Guth is about Inflation and the Big Bang, as discussed by the inventor of it.
Anything by or about Feynman...he created quantum chromodynamics.
