I'll explain what "physical" means just as soon as you explain what "real"
means, and what "means" means.

Feynman's theory said the magnetic moment for the electron should not be
exactly 1 as had been thought but 1.00115965246, what number does your
theory say it should be?

True, I have only read the first 2 steps (or maybe it was 3, I forget) of
your Ulster Defense Association proof, but proofs are built on the
foundation of what comes before, so when one comes upon a ridiculous
blunder in step 2 (or maybe 3) it would be equally ridiculous to keep
reading. And in none of your writings do you factor in the IHA principle.
