Ultimately, things boil down to a sort of subject/object dipole, which is an intrinsic feature of the landscape we inhabit, and my reasonably neutral fallback position. It's whats there hidden between the boot and the strap. What remains after you sift the ore, plumb the cosmic depths, open the slit, accelerate the particle- one pole ultimately and invariably just leading to the other. Lines of force, of logical inference. The various turf battles tend to obscure that central, uncomfortable paradox. Anyway thats my story, and I'm sticking to it.

But, special gravity throws a natural curve - no?

From the snarXiv (snarXiv.org) - hard to distinguish from the real thing, sometimes:

 

Models of Cosmic Rays Obtained Using Gerbs

O. A. Susskind, M. Cabibo

 

Comments: 23 pages, minor corrections

 

Subjects: High Energy Physics - Phenomenology (hep-ph); Statistical Mechanics (cond-mat.stat-mech)

 

In the 20th century, much work has been done on acoustic gauge mediation. Consequently, substantial progress has been made among mathematicians on models of inflation. Using the behavior of the left-right formulation of a perturbative CFT living on CY_n, we obtain dions, and calculate that some novel computations of a gravitational-dual of a perturbative WZW Chern-Simons Theory follow from spinning BMS supertranslations, and calculate that sheaf cohomology in WZW GR on AdS_n is useful for bounding inflation in the interstellar medium, and implement that, at least in the context of general dimensionality, quasi-primary operators on CY_m derive from the solution of twisted Matrix Models, and conjecture that, in the dimensionality case, condensates in the early universe turn out to be equivalent to the compactification of gerbs in QED_3. A model for quintessence is also reconstructed. After understanding special lagrangian instantons at the event horizon, we find that, as hinted at by Nekrosov, models of inflatonless inflation are diffractive, as hinted at by Kachru.

 

 

You can also play arXiv vs snarXiv.

Heh, I thought it was the belief of understanding science!

well... it includes the science of understanding the belief of understanding science.

Understand??

Intergalactic dust, thermalized by starlight, generates blackbody  CMB, not the big bang.  Apologies to theists and uninformed physicists.

PS.

Has the old sadist done that tower of Babel thing again, cos I don't understand a word that Susskind utters!?
