    added pointer to today’s

    Though I haven’t actually absorbed this yet.

    I see they reference the paper by Hisham I added in #1.

    Thanks for the alert. I have fixed the formatting of 𝕆P 2\mathbb{O}P^2 in the entry.

    a natural map of the conjectured “bosonic M-theory” of Horowitz and Susskind in 26 + 1 down to M-theory in 10 + 1.

    So what’s the inverse image of twisted cohomotopy?

    What do you mean? Do you mean the kernel of the map from Cohomotopy to K-theory?

    I haven’t read what they’re saying closely enough, but since they were talking about a chain of reductions generating a map from bosonic M-theory to ordinary M-theory, aspects of the latter may appear as reductions of the former, e.g., the C-field may have its preimage in bosonic M-theory.
