hi,

*>Also we had very interesting and fruitful discussions with Tony
*

*>Smith and I have studied Tony's homepage. One one results on my side was
*

*>the realization that 8-dimensional
*

*>imbedding space H of TGD allows octonionic structures as tangent space
*

*>structure: one could say that H is locally a number field.
*

This is remarkable and interesting....

But, what role does the 8-dim imbedding space play in your theory?

(I do plan to study your theory closely, but have not found the time yet)

*>Your idea is interesting also from my point of view. I am pondering
*

*>analogous problem: spacetime sheets decomposes in QFT limit to regions
*

*>with different p-adic primes: the physics in different regions are
*

*>described by different p-adic number fields. How to relate these
*

*>p-adic physics to each other?: this is the basic problem. I believe that
*

*>this is possible.
*

If we could map the p-adic stuff onto the octonionic stuff in a clear way, this

would help my intuition and build a bridge between several theories.
