Pearson quoted Smith quoting Baez:

At http://www.innerx.net/personal/tsmith/cnfGrHg.html
We find:
“Spin Networks are defined by Baez as "...graphs embedded in a manifold S (the space of spacetime) with edges labeled by representations of a Lie group G and with vertices labeled by intertwining operators. Spin networks define gauge-invariant functions on the space A of connections of any G-bundle over S...".



All Pearson had to do was to read two more small paragraphs to get a direct refutation of his stupid spacetime xy continum idea. Here is the relevant paragraph:

"The configuration space of gravity using the Ashtekar variables is not the space of metrics, but the space of connections on an SL(2,C) bundle (with compact real form SU(2) = Spin(3)) over S."

The key words are 'not the space of metrics'.

Mike will do anything to offset the idea that he does not know something. Mike owes Wanda an apology. He is very proud of his 99% in grade school. So what. That does not prove anything except that Mike is really screwed up. He talks about cattle and pasture pies. Is he just a dumb farmer???
