Cool A curious mathematical series upsets physicists.

Boy, have I upset the particle physicists!

I love it!

so what do you think Fred? do you feel you've stumbled across something truly significant? or have the physicists convinced you that your summation, which results in a number that matches the mass of an proton to 6 decimal places, is pure coincidence?

I sent an email to the Particle Data Group asking about this. Haven't heard back yet.

Edit: Proton mass has little effect on dark matter. <<<<< corrected earlier mis-statement
