Dear Matti,

I can find the origional reference but I think it was in the early

Yes, I agree! I will be looking into Pratt's Chu_8 spaces, there is a

relation there!

Wow! That would be great if we could prove it.

Could the linking be use to define entanglement or locality? It does

seem that a Planck energy is needed in a Planck volume to achive grand

symmetry, perhaps it is here were topological variations occur... I

don't know...

Later,
