This lab note will be brief.
On April 28, 2007, I posted a paper which went from baryons and confinement to strings to particle phenomenology to atomic physics and deuterons and a whole range of phenomenology including fermion generation replication which appeared to lend itself to a common, underlying explanation based on the work I have previously discussed with respect to baryons and confinement in particular. The underlying thread throughout, is to connect spacetime symmetry to internal symmetry using the Pauli fermionic exclusion principle. I am afraid, however, that this paper may have been buried amidst all of the other postings, so I want to specifically call it to your attention, at the link below:
In the spirit of “Lab Notes” which are a scientific diary of theoretical explorations, I ask you in particular to look at the second half of this paper, starting at section 6. In football, there is something known as a “Hail Mary” pass where the quarterback throws the ball all the way down the field hoping for a touchdown. The second half of the above paper is just that. While certainly speculative, it seems to me that this ties together a very diverse range of observable phenomenology which has not previously been tied together. It is probably the most audacious piece of physics writing I have done, and I don’t want it to get lost in the shuffle.
So, if nothing comes of it, so be it. But, it may well be that someone in the end zone will catch this long pass, and physics will come to rest in a different place from where it rests today. That is why it is so important to take good lab notes!
