Mass gap, tick. What next?

And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see. Apocalypse of John (Rev 6.)

Now that we have QGC (M-theory) via the operadic ribbon graph calculus and the duality principle, what next?

I'm not a mathematician, but one cannot help wondering about the Riemann hypothesis. People have been saying for a long time that all one needs to prove the Riemann hypothesis is a cleverly constructed operator whose spectrum gives the zeros of the zeta function. Moreover, people know that the linearity of the trace is the real problem. Well, QGC fixes this problem!

Think of localisation on a line in the MHV diagram technique!

Update: the gallant kneemo has established beyond doubt that the M-theory works! See the thread below.

HI Kea! If you or someone else solves the Riemann hypothesis it would be huge. It makes one think and think some more until it is solved.
I've been following Not Even Wrong and one of your comments on "Unravelling of String Theory" seems to have been deleted. If so, then welcome to the club. There seems to be a lot of hostility online today.

Hi Louise

I just put a whole lot of comments on CV. Let's see if they stay!

4pm: no! JoAnne deleted the comments...

Kea, you should post it on arXiv and PRD, not on cosmicvariance :)

Kea, it can be difficult publishing something that is not the party line, even on arxiv. Even an M-theory that works can get deleted. I have mentioned the controversy today, and anyone is welcome to leave comments if they are civil.

Exactly. The only place where one is guaranteed a spot is blogs and forums.

If your article is unfairly rejected then what you could do is post the article and the unfair referee report together with your comments on blogs or even or arXiv (like Michael Duff did).

The editors of Nature probably didn't like what Duff did because he showed that the referees didn't understand what units are which is almost primary school level physics.

Also funny! :)

Yeah Kea:
Count Iblis is right. I would be curious to read your paper. Since I am accumulating information right now, it would be a treat. Otherwise, we have nothing to go on. Best wishes developing your theory.

Think bigger. This isn't just about publishing really cool papers. History will note that this enlightenment happened on the internet.

Oh sure Kea, I see what you mean and I don't necessarily mean published in the arxiv or a Journal. I am just curious as to your theory's particulars that is all. I like learning, so here I am and am excited about your discoveries:)

Hi Kea!

The Lamb opening the seals!
interesting Metaphor.

But Physics & Matter cannot open the seals to the Spirit Realm. It is the Spirit opens the seals into the Realm of Matter.

Ps - Kea, if you've got a comment to make at CV or anywhere and it is removed, and you think you have a point to nake. Post the comment here. In fact post the comment here and say posted here at CV at Reference Frame & Not Even Wrong.

But there are also other physics blogs which will let you post comments, and they are probablt read by just as many serious physicists, even if they appear to have less visitors on the pop charts.

Hi Kea! I don't really understand the details of this stuff but like to try to see a bigger picture with it all. I feel like I've kind of found a sisterhood of renegades among you smart ladies. I haven't posted any comments at NEW or CV because they seem pretty intellectually hostile and elitist at times. Good luck and keep working!
