I have a copy of Weyl's "Space-Time_Matter" Dover Books, 1952. It is a

beautiful book. I had long hoped that Hermann's beautiful ideas could be

useful, to bad he lived in a world that could not understand him! :( I

have a photocopy of Eddington's chapter on Weyl's theory and his

assesment. The "pseudo-problem" of gauge invariance causing a smearing

of spectra is not a problem at all. I think that the arguments that we

use for "local" time are equally applicable to "local" spatial

distributions! There is a mathematical duality involved here, that of

the Fourier transform!
