Mr. Yanniru wrote,
"My statement is an example that no theory is circular in the sense that the axioms or assumptions can be derived from the solutions. All theories have this property. So Stafford's theory is consistent with this."

I respond:
Neat. You call it "Stafford's theory."

Mr. Yanniru wrote:
To claim, or think that I am claiming, that Stafford's theory is not valid because it is not circular exemplifies your lack of understanding.

I respond,
What's your problem. Did you eat a bad bit of bacon?

Mr. Yanniru wrote,
"His theory does not contradict any theory known to physics and verified by experiment."

Mr. Yanniru wrote:
For example, it does not overturn the standard model. So in a sense his theory fails to overturn all accepted theories of physics.

Occupant responds:
YOU DID NOT MENTION this is a rub between Newton's mechanics and relativity physics...results diverge approaching light speed. Physical laws confirmed by experiment can later be found to have exceptions,as Newton's mechanics have.

Mr Yanniru wrote:
But what he has shown is important because, using a very novel and clever theoretical derivation, he can derive wave function equations from more limited and simple assumptions (or definitions if you will) than heretofore thought possible.

I respond: Neat!

Mr. Yanniru wrote:
This just illustrates your lack of understanding of the scientific process.

I respond:
Yes, this just illustrates your lack of understanding of the scientific process.
Discussions must always be filled with patronizing disparagement, and you only include them in every third paragraph.

Don't worry; Leon Lederman, for example, wrote a whole book with hardly any patronizing disparagement. The guy just doesn't understand the scientific process quite the way you do.

Mr. Yanniru:
Someone once criticized you for not being able to think outside of the box. My opinion is that you always think outside of the box. It seems that you never quite understand what you are responding to.

I respond:
Nice touch. That "never" has the ring of a Law of Science. Maybe the forum will rigorously review your new Law...although "rigor" has not gone unpunished here...or ignored. Dr. Stafford stated that his Paper was ignored for almost 20 years, and now you are saying it contains important work. My first account of it was,
"I like what I have read of it." Some others here were disparaging it. I don't remember if you were disparaging it. But disparagement by physicists (or others) is no proof of poor quality.

Thank you.


The rest of this is blather too; don't read unless truly rich with leisure time and enjoying it.

Mr. Yanniru titles the post,
"Your lack of understanding"

If we say that every time we post here, it's repetitious -- might be a good way to title a response to Mr. Yanniru -- the golden rule
used exactly and fairly.

Mr. Yanniru wrote,
It was 'my opinion' of dolphin's interpretation of Stafford's work that I was addressing. By thinking that I was critizing Stafford's work, you were again changing the subject. "

I respond:
Not clear in your post -- it's not point by point... you had written generalities only, y'know. By the way, your rhetoric is more tricky than mine. That's a skill, though an annoying one.
