Some Remarks on Discrete Physics as an Ultimate Dynamical Theory* H. Pierre Noyes

Abstract

.. .-. The standard model of quarks and leptons currently fails to meet ‘t Hooft’s criterion for an “Ultimate Dynamical Theory” in that it contains 19 parameters which must be taken from experiment. Evaluating discrete physics in the same way we find that it requires 17 parameters and has already succeeded in computing 7 of them. While we are confident that the rest can also be computed, the very concept of an ultimate theory is incompatible with our attitude toward physics. An extension of “Some Remarks” presented at the Seventeenth Annual International Meeting of the ALTERNATIVE NATURAL PHILOSOPHY ASSOCIATION Wesley House, Cambridge, England, September. 7-10, 1995 * Work supported by the Department of Energy, contract DE–AC03–76SFO0515. --
