### Magnetic monopoles at sixties

Old age is usually associated with wisdom and similar virtues. In my case this association unfortunately fails and therefore the first morning at sixties gives me authority to free associations about everything under the heaven, and magnetic monopoles are a good place to start from. The evidence for condensed matter monopoles is accumulating (see this and this) and the question is whether they really represent some new physics. Perhaps this is the case.

Dirac monopoles are mathematically singular and cannot be therefore tolerated in elite circles of theoretical physics appreciating good manners coded by gauge invariance. Since I frantically want to belong to the elite, I am happy that TGD provides me with homological monopoles, which can exist gracefully because of the homological non-triviality of CP_{2}. Homological non-triviality means that CP_{2} has non-contractible 2-surfaces such as spheres: this does not mean that it would have a hole as a lazy popularizer usually says. Rather, this kind of sphere is a 2-dimensional analog of a circle around torus not allowing contraction to a point without cutting. The imbedding of CP_{2} to some higher dimensional space would contain a hole in some sense.

The weak form of electric-magnetic duality- a purely TGD based notion- implies that all elementary particles correspond to pairs of wormhole contacts. Each contact has two throats carrying magnetic monopole charge and each throat is connected to the corresponding throat of second contact. This makes altogether four wormhole throats so that graviton can be constructed in this manner. The length of the magnetic flux tube defining string like object corresponds to the weak length scale about 10^{-17} m. All particles would be this kind of string like objects, "weak" strings.

Emergence gives excellent hopes about the realization of exact Yangian invariance and twistor Grassmannian program without infrared and UV divergences (see this). Emergence states that at the fundamental level there are only massless(!) wormhole throats carrying many-fermion states identifiable in terms of representations for the analog of space-time super-symmetry algebra with generators identified as fermionic oscillator operators. Masslessness applies also to the building blocks of virtual particles meaning a totally new interpretation of loop corrections and manifest UV finiteness. Also the vibrational degrees of freedom of partonic 2-surfaces are present as bosonic degrees of freedom and correspond to orbital degrees of freedom for the spinor fields of world of classical worlds (WCW) whereas fermionic degrees of freedom define WCW spin degrees of freedom. The dark variants of the elementary particles having large value of hbar have zoomed up size and in living matter these scaled up elementary particles would be the key players in the drama of life.

Quite recently I realized that dark variants of elementary particles identified in this manner are more or less the same thing as the wormhole magnetic fields that I introduced for more than decade ago (see this) and suggested that their Bose-Einstein condensates and coherent states could be crucial for understanding living matter. At that time I did not of course realize the connection with ordinary elementary particle physics and proposed these exotics as new kind of particle like objects. These flux tubes have become the basic structures in TGD inspired quantum biology. For instance, the model for DNA as topological quantum computer assumes that the nucleotides of DNA and lipids of cell membrane are connected by this kind of flux tubes with quarks at their ends and the braiding of the flux tubes codes for topological quantum computations.

If this picture is correct, quantum biology might be to high degree a collection of zoomed up variants of elementary particle physics at very high density! Also the super-partners and scaled up hadrons would be present. If this is true we would be able to study elementary particle interiors by zooming up them to the scales of living matter! There would be no need for the followers of LHC! Living matter could be an enormous particle physics laboratory providing physicists with incredibly refined research facilities;-). But are these facilities meant for us after we finally have realized that we ourselves are the most refined laboratory? Or are the physicists already there? If so, who these physicists from higher levels of self hierarchy might be;-)?

By the way, this crazy speculation might have been inspired also by the earlier finding that the model of dark nucleons allows to map the spectrum of nucleon states to RNA, DNA, tRNA triplets and aminoacids and also reproduces vertebrate genetic code in a very natural manner (see this and this).
