I mentioned several days ago that I had submitted a __Kaluza Klein paper__ to one of the leading journals. That lengthy paper was not accepted, and you can read the referee report and some of my comments here at sci.physics.foundations or here, with some other folks’ comments, at sci.physics.relativity. The report actually was not too bad, concluding that “the author must have worked a considerable amount to learn quite a few thing in gravitation theory, and a number of the equations are correctly written and they do make sense, however those eqs. *do not contain anything original*.” I would much rather hear this sort of objection, than be told — as I have been in the past — that I don’t know anything about the subject I am writing about.

In fact, there is one finding in the above-linked paper which, as I thought about it more and more, is quite original, yet I believe it was lost in the mass of this larger paper. And, frankly, it took me a few days to catch on to the full import of this finding, and so I downplayed it in the earlier paper. Namely: that the compactified fifth dimension of Kaluza-Klein theories is the mainspring of the intrinsic spins which permeate particle physics.

I have now written and submitted for publication, a new paper which only includes that Kaluza-Klein material which is necessary to fully support this particular original finding. You may read the submitted paper at __Intrinsic Spin and the Kaluza-Klein Fifth Dimension__. I will, of course, let you know what comes from the review of this paper.

I welcome your comments and feedback.

Jay.
