Yes, if you mean by the factorial operator the one that tansforms n to n!,
your statement is right and justifies the transformation from QM to Relativity
and vice versa, on the level of calculus/mathematical rules. I postulated this
relation between QM and relativity as a mathematical framewrok and proved its
consistency as a mathematical theorem. We have justifications on the same
level: I think you can assure the consistency of the two views related by the
transformation by the factorial operator with some additional words.

As a corrector, the factorial operator transformation might be useful in
applications and would make the understanding of the consistent unification of
the two seemingly contradictory views easier.
