There are lots of foundations that persistently pay millions of dollars to exactly the same kind of research that you are doing and the same kind of researchers (those who yell that they made a revolution but there is no visible beef that makes sense), namely – among many and many others – The Templeton Foundation, FQXi, and most departments of philosophies ...

See [1] M. Bos and V.P. Nair. Coherent State Quantization of Chern-Simons Theory. International Journal of Modern Physics A, A5:959, 1990. and chapter 20 of [2] V.P. Nair. Quantum Field Theory: A modern perspective. Springer, 2005. These references have geometric quantization of abelian Chern-Simons theory for $\Sigma=S^1 \times S^1$ (the first ref. ...

The adiabatic theorem is required to derive the Berry phase equation in quantum mechanics. Therefore the adiabatic theorem and the Berry phase must be compatible with one another. (Though geometric derivations are possible, they usually don't employ quantum mechanics. And while illuminating what is going on mathematically, they obscure what is going on ...

1: If you have the real estate available, then it is more efficient to have large, shallow ponds. This way you maximize the surface area that is irradiated by the sun. Thus, more heat is transferred to the water. 2: The pond layout you describe seems complex and it would definitely require some level of control. The simplest way is simply to fill the ponds ...
