Dear Professor Woit,

I quoted your "String Theory: An Evaluation" [Ref. 1] at

http://members.aon.at/chakalov/Gerardus.html#Woit

In your manifesto "Quantum Field Theory and Representation Theory: A Sketch" [Ref. 2], which I downloaded from your web site,

http://www.math.columbia.edu/~woit

you wrote:

"During the past twenty-five years particle physics has been a victim of its own success. The standard model has done an excellent job of explaining all phenomena seen up to the highest energies that can be reached by present-day accelerators. The advent of the LHC at CERN starting in 2007 may change this situation but this cannot be counted on."

Not al all. On Thursday, January 9, 2003, I bet $100 that the Higgs will not be discovered. Instead, the number of quarks will jump to 8 and more, in Fibonacci sequence,

http://members.aon.at/chakalov/Palazzi.html

I will soon raise my bet to $1000 and will place it at

http://www.longbets.org

If I win, the money will go to some charity foundation supporting the kids in Iraq, who are totally innocent and have nothing to do with that horrible madness,

http://www.newscientist.com/hottopics/iraq/article.jsp?id=99993331

If you know such charity foundation, please drop me a line.

I extend this request to all readers of this note.

Thank you very much in advance.

You also wrote at your web site:

"Nothing on this page is very important compared to this,

I fully and wholeheartedly agree.

Dear Professor Nakano,

I'm wondering if you can predict the next eight-quark particle,

http://members.aon.at/chakalov/Palazzi.html

I will appreciate the opinion of your colleagues, too.

Nakano-san,

In my previous email of Wed, 30 Jul 2003 15:50:10 +0300 at

http://members.aon.at/chakalov/Woit.html#Nakano ,

I was wondering if you or some of your distinguished colleagues could predict the next eight-quark particle,

http://members.aon.at/chakalov/Palazzi.html

If this seems too difficult, may I suggest to try the prediction by Frieden & Plastino, published on January 15, 2001 [Ref. 3, p. 306]: "Finally, the EPI information approach provides a framework for predicting additional bosons to H^0, Z^0 and W+/-. A basic precept of EPI is that all its solutions have a physical reality [1]. Thus, the index [alfa] can go beyond value 4 in Eqs. (42) and (45), up to a general value k (see beginning of Section 6). This would permit  k  independent boson fields to be present. These might group into additional bosons to the Z^0 and W+/- defined in Eqs. (43a), (43b)."

Can you tweak the "standard model" to accommodate k  independent boson fields?

If you only say 'yes', I will bet another $100 that the number of these boson fields will grow in Fibonacci sequence,

http://members.aon.at/chakalov/Palazzi.html

If you say 'no', I will wait this to be done by some of your distinguished colleagues, and will again bet $100 that the number of these boson fields will grow in Fibonacci sequence,

http://members.aon.at/chakalov/Palazzi.html

In none of your distinguished colleagues is interested, just wait for my CD ROM to be printed, and then some young (and maybe poor) grad student from China or India (or why not from the U.S.?) will get the job done and will collect my $100, well before the advent of the LHC at CERN starting in 2007.

Then the fun will begin!!!

Please note that I can not specify and kind of probability for the latest development, since it can be 'made to happen' only by the Synchronicity, ... but that's a bit different issue.

With kindest regards,

Dear Dr. Hinchliffe,

I believe this is an automatic reply to my email of Tue, 19 Aug 2003 18:10:39 +0100 (printed below).

I am very much willing to promote your competition [Ref. 4], which was briefly mentioned by Ms. Jenny Hogan (Let's play hunt the particle, New Scientist, 16 August 2003, p. 14).

Please be aware of the possibility that the hypothetical Higgs particle(s) could be nothing but an artifact from the mellowing standard model. "It does not explain the particle quantum numbers, such as the electric charge Q, weak isospin I, hypercharge Y and colour, and contains at least 19 arbitrary parameters", says John Ellis,

http://members.aon.at/chakalov/Ellis.html

You can read at my web site that on January 9, 2003, I bet $100 that the Higgs will not be discovered. Can't beat Fibonacci.

May I ask you to inform your colleagues and all participants of your competition that I will be more than happy to award $100 to any successful modification of the standard model, based on the Fibonacci sequence of quarks and boson fields,

http://members.aon.at/chakalov/Woit.html#Nakano

Hence you and all your colleagues involved in your competition will have multiple choice: a cash award from you, or $100 from me. I don't know how much will be the prize for your competition, you only said that "it won't be anything expensive" [Ref. 4].

For more information about the story of Leonardo of Pisa, also known as Leonardo Fibonacci, please see Mario Livio's book [Ref. 5], particularly Ch. 5, p. 100.

There is no need to wait for the Large Hadron Collider. The breakthrough can happen any time, even before you come back to work on August 24.

Sincerely yours,

Dimi Chakalov

[Ref. 4] Particle physicists play hunt the particle, by Jenny Hogan
New Scientist, 10:15 16 August 03,

http://www.newscientist.com/news/print.jsp?id=ns99994052

"A competition is running to test the detective skills of the physicists who will grapple with data from the next generation of particle accelerators. They have been given two months to find secret physics hidden in a simulated data set.

"The data is intended to mimic the results that will pour out from the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) when it is switched on in 2007. The LHC, under construction in tunnels beneath the French-Swiss border at CERN, will be the most powerful particle accelerator in the world.

"Beams of protons will be fired in opposite directions down the tunnels and when two collide, their energy will be ejected in a spray of new particles. Studying the debris from such collisions has helped physicists to piece together the rules of the subatomic world.

"But "the LHC opens up a new energy regime, so you are never sure what you might find" says Ian Hinchliffe, from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in California, and one of the competition's organisers.
...

"The competition is open to the 2000 physicists around the world who are part of ATLAS, a project that will run on the LHC. Participating teams have until 7 September to submit a report, which will be judged on accuracy and thoroughness. There will be a prize, says Hinchliffe, but "it won't be anything expensive".

"If the challenge helps to improve the programs, a larger competition will be run in 2004."

Dear Colleagues,

I'm wondering if you've heard about Fibonacci,

Note: To avoid possible misunderstandings, please bear in mind that the hypothetical Holon state, as explained at

http://members.aon.at/chakalov/LHC.html#Holon  ,

refers to a special superposed state of all elementary particles, both discovered and unknown. The duration of this Holon state can not be recorded with any physical clock, since it lives in the postulated global mode of spacetime,

http://members.aon.at/chakalov/Planat.html

Moreover, the Holon state can not be reduced to any finite number of physical constituents, such as quarks and boson fields (cf. above), because the Holon is always being "unpacked" in Fibonacci sequence or in binary Fibonacci sequence (the so-called Golden String),

http://www.maths.ex.ac.uk/~mwatkins/zeta/GUE-fibonacci.htm

See also a detailed mathematical model developed by Pau Atela, Chris Golé, and Scott Hotton at

http://www.math.smith.edu/~phyllo/About/math.html

http://www.math.smith.edu/~phyllo/Research/index.html

On the other hand, the quest for some "God particle" or Higgs boson stems from the obvious contention that there must exist some "bottom" in the mass hierarchy, some sort of "last" boson field that does not need anything further for its existence. This is well-known issue in philosophy: the Final Cause or the Unmoved Mover of Aristotle; see also Lucretius.

Surely there must be a special boundary of the physical world, which (i) can not be reached "from inside-the-universe", (ii) can be expressed with a finite numerical value of some physical quantity (absolute zero "temperature", Planck "time" and "length", "speed" of light, etc.), and (iii) refers to the Holon state of the whole universe as ONE.

"Everyone is disappointed and frustrated," says Judy Jackson of Fermilab. Not a surprise, if you're trying to outsmart Mother Nature. The solution may be at the tip of your fingers. Start with the five-quark particle from Takashi Nakano and the light dark matter particle from Dan Hooper and Céline Boehm (Céline Boehm et al., MeV Dark Matter: Has It Been Detected? astro-ph/0309686 v2 of Wednesday, 1 October 2003; see below).

Why wait until 2007?
