My prejudices on this sort of investigation:

1) Mach's principle is too vague and is based on naive 17th century ideas of mass.

2) Modern GR is that there is a geometrodynamical field.

3) All boson fields come from local gauging global symmetry groups.

4) The geometry is the symmetry group in the sense of Klein Erlanger Programme.

5) I prefer to start with Minkowski spacetime as an axiom.

6) I then get Einstein's GR simply as the local gauge potential of the translation subgroup of the Poincare group - using the tetrad/spin connection Cartan forms.

Therefore curved spacetime geons exist even in absence of other matter fields. In other words Mach's principle is fundamentally the wrong road.

7) From Penrose we know that the massless spinor fermion fields are simply square roots of the invariant light cone.

8) Rest masses of quarks and leptons from from the Higgs field as in the standard model.

Thanks Jack -- maybe think of these questions as similar to those asked about em waves in the early days of relativity-- What are they waving in? there's no 'ether'. It's a wave sans medium.
This is not an oscillation in time as in the usual temporal axis-- perhaps it's similar to Stapp's 'process time'.
Thanks, R.

Hi Ruth
I am beginning to look at your paper - but have not yet.
I am using Nick Herbert's precognition protocol. ;-)
I am confused as to the basic picture.
How can de Broglie waves exist prior to Minkowski spacetime?
What are they waving in? How can they oscillate before there is time?
OK will look at the paper. :-)
