I thought it would be fun just to show how many papers are out there that show how to derive famous physics equations (e.g., Schrodinger's equation) by other unrelated premises than that used by the people who developed the equations:

"Quantum mechanics as a result of time broadening of the classical object"

This is just a small sampling of 'foundational physics' that have appeared on LANL site over the past 18 months. It's clear that anyone of these authors could get on an internet site and say that their formulas are king stuff. Fortunately, few do that. Wouldn't it get old fast??
