I do not have much knowledge of string theory and I also lack other background
that would be useful for studying your ideas. You are right about that for

I think that Hitoshi's theory, generalized to account for weak and strong
would support the use of symmetries to determine particle spectrum and type
of interaction. He has not had need for this because his work so far has
been in
the unification of non-relativistic QM with GR.

I understand that the two theories are different, but I had hoped to be
able to draw
some elements from your thinking into the picture, in order to help extend
ideas to account for all the forces. if this is not possible, so be it.
the universe is
notoriously imperfect ;)
