Description

Particle Paths

Abstract:

This paper proposes the new idea that there are sequences of particles. An example: the first four words in this sentence are particles Back up in around behind the stove there are wormholes. Involved in this claim there are many sub-questions: how are particles defined? Can any pairs of particles A and B occur in the orders AB and BA? How long can particle paths be? What do particle paths mean? Some answers to these and other questions can be mooted, but by an large, murk prevails.
