# Short comment: 1 is 4 and 4 is 1

On p.19/20 of
Paper #89
we read:

. . . From this follows for the double sum:

q^{a}_{μ} * q^{μ}_{a} = 4
(29)

The convention used in ECE theory is to normalize this to unity:

q^{a}_{μ} q^{μ}_{a} = 1
(30)

Thus having to carry around factors of 4 and a quarter in complicated calculations
is avoided.

This belongs to Evans' famous rules of NEW MATH:

### 1 is 4 and 4 is 1.

How to avoid getting ''malicious'' about that nonsense?

Evans on his
blog
to defend his paper:

*''In other words the standard faction deliberately refuses to accept
mathematical proofs, and dishonestly tries to give the impression that these
proofs are “incorrect”. This is unprofessional conduct and the unscientific
opinions of people who act in this manner are null and void.''*

## Conclusion: No further comments necessary.
