Orwell meets the Devil 2

Dear readers, this story does not end there. 

If you look closely, the new Arkani-Hamed paper is not only about the connection between gravity and color in an operad theory, which I explained in detail in my thesis in 2007. It is also about the associahedra in Postnikov’s simplices and their canonical forms.

A few months ago, I was writing notes on my new pink ipad, about the associahedra in Postnikov’s simplices and their canonical forms. Actually, I have been thinking about this for many years, and I can assure you that my stalkers know all this perfectly well. But they somehow failed to mention it. And for two months, the physics blogosphere has been awash with stories about the associahedra, about which I notoriously blogged for many years. But no one told me. And no one credited me.

It all lends new meaning to the word Silence. My heartfelt thanks go to all those of you who noticed.
