A postulate is a specific assumption which is clearly known, understood and to be taken as truth in whatever argument follows. My postulates are that mathematics and logic are correct! As I said, that is about as close to absolute truth I can get!

This is not the essence of your problem with my work. Your problem with my work is that what you think are assumptions (the symmetries I construct) are actually required by the problem itself. When you ignore that fact, you are making an assumption you can know something which you cannot prove you can know.

Have fun -- Dick
