***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** I agree with Ajay, why not take what the physicist find and check if it works. If it does, this can help to explain some facts, that are still unsolved, and if not, no damage done. Maybe they also provide new methods that could be tested. Wouldn´t it be nice to have a "grand unified network law" ;-) The only sad thing is, that they always make it to center stage (nature, science etc) while those who have been there for a long while, stand in the shadows. Can´t something be done about that? Collaboration etc? Best, Bettina -- Dipl.-Phys.
