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

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
