Our first post on this long-running thread was Sockpuppetry at The Quantum Pontiff, some time ago, but it's not necessary to review what I wrote, which wasn't much. All the original reader comments are still up. Just go there. Start at the top of the page, or if you can't be bothered to read the whole thing, go straight to the devastating smackdown. If you're in too much of a hurry even for that, I've got the money quote below the fold. But it's a spoiler, and I suggest you read it in context on Dave's blog.
Sorry "Charles" you've stumbled on someone who actually knows what the experiment which revealed the "golden mean in quantum mechanics" is about. And it ain't got nothing to do with anything El Naschie has ever written as far as I can tell. It's certainly not "fundamental": it's a discovery about the perturbation of the critical point of a transverse Ising model where the particle spectrum is related to an E8 spectrum. It's very cool, and good solid research as opposed to, in my opinion, the garbage that is created by the love of your life.
Please, sockpuppets, if you're going to spam here, at least make them interesting and not just love letters to your leader.
