## Quantum Gravity Lesson 41

##### 13 May 2019

Today we look once again at that 2/9 parameter in the Koide rest mass formula. We see how the central 6 points on the tetractys have a different origin to the remaining 21, when considering the basic simplex map from 81 paths to 27.

## Quantum Gravity Lesson 40

##### 11 May 2019

A little introduction to the famous j-invariant, from some rough notes I passed around last year. Yes, we feature the golden ratio. I realised back in 2017 that it featured prominently in the defining polynomials, as noted here.

## Memories

##### 10 May 2019

Over a year ago, I was playing with some nice diagrams associated to the magic star. But don’t forget, in quantum gravity, the Star of Remphan (and much evil) is always accompanied by pentagons (and love).

## Quantum Gravity Lesson 39

##### 10 May 2019

As some of you will remember, there are n^(n-2) parking functions. Here are the 16 parking functions on the pentagon, in terms of our standard X, Y, Z alphabet. This is a bit different to the 16 spinor degrees of freedom, but still out of the 27 paths on the tetractys simplex inside the 4-dit discrete cube.

## Big Brother Update

##### 10 May 2019

I lost many files when they deleted all my iBooks pdfs back in January, just after I arrived in Christchurch. And where I am now the pirate websites are all blocked, and of course I have not had journal access since last year. Many old papers remain behind impossible paywalls, and I cannot replace them when they get deleted from my devices.

Big brother, it only encourages me.

According to this video, Tesla knew about neutrinos, in principle, in 1896!

## Today’s Questions

##### 04 May 2019

I only have two questions for today.

- Why is my confidential power bill being sent to me by Michel Planat, whom I met in Prague?
- What was the actual content of the email or emails sent to me by Planat?

Yes, this is a legitimate screenshot, indicating that the iPad mail app is doing very strange things ... as I have been saying ...
