Particle masses from a Calabi-Yau Authors: S.L. Glashow Comments: 89 pages (sorry) Report-no: BU-4/2005 We identify the unique Calabi-Yau background that leads to a realistic heterotic Standard Model at low energies. A dual G2 compactification of M-theory and a Calabi-Yau four-fold compactification of F-theory is constructed. A self-mirror discrete symmetry protects the stability of the proton, stabilizes all moduli, and implies realistic neutrino mass matrices, in agreement with our recent results. In order to avoid abstract rubbish, we calculate the masses of elementary quarks and leptons. After including first 7 loops, worldsheet instantons and D3-brane instantons, the muon/electron mass ratio turns out to be approximately 206.76826535236246, for example. The low-energy electroweak theory by Glashow et al. with three fundamental Higgs bosons is a trivial consequence of the model. The lightest supersymmetric particle is predicted to be a neutralino at 200.504 GeV. There have been 63.8 e-foldings of inflation. We speculate that the backgrounds without the Glashow self-mirror discrete symmetry are exponentially suppressed in the Hartle-Hawking state, and our vacuum is therefore a unique SUSY-breaking four-dimensional cosmology that arises from string theory. Finally, we argue that our discoveries make string theory safe. Permanently safe. We also write down the most general bootstrap conditions for string/M-theory, and show that the two-dimensional worldsheet conformal field theories and the AdS/CFT models represent two large classes of solutions of our conditions.Sheldon Glashow was one of the few who for two decades ago did his best to warn for what might happen when all intellectual resources are forced to work with single idea, which has no empirical support. Now the worst has happened. Just for fun and knowing that I had nothing to lose, also I told for twenty years ago in my application to a research post in the Institute of Theoretical Physics of Helsinki University, what the failures of string theory are, and I was correct and for obvious reasons. I am now waiting that my colleagues come to tap me on shoulder, to praise my far-sightedness, and apologize;-)! Back to business. I continued to work with the claimed properties ORMEs and irrespective of whether ORMEs are fraud or not, I have now a beautiful model for what happens in the phase transition increasing the value of hbar and leading to the formation of conformally confined blocks of protons and electrons. Conservation laws and Uncertainty Principle give decisive constraints on the model for this phase transition. The crucial new observation is that the phase transition to dark matter can occur at the level of protons and electrons and thus would increase their Compton lengths by a factor hbar_s/hbar.

ORMEs, cold fusion, sonofusion, sono-luminescence and quantum coherent dark matter
Parodies of string models are nowadays difficult to distinguish from real articles. I glue here an abstract of parody of the standard string model paper send by Nobelist Sheldon Glashow to hep-th in Fool's Day. With a minor modifications this would look like any of those seminal works about landscape flowing in hep-th nowadays. Unfortunately, the paper itself has been removed by administrators.
