Are you saying that your view is so unpopular that no experimentalist is
willing to help you with experiments? That would be a shame. =( This
conversation aside, and just out of pure curiousity, how much would such
an experiment cost? And is it common for experimentalists to ignore
unpopular theories?

I find eveyrones tenacity admirable in a way, and I'm looking forward to
seeing if anyone will have an "aha" moment, where one is able to break
through to the other. =)

Best regards,
