comment Reason for the discreteness arising in quantum mechanics?
The other postulate is that it arises in the dynamics of little tiny strings, which is perfectly consistent with all observations, but such things are still viewed as speculative.

@rafiki A Kerr microscope is what you might thinking of. Here is another view.

@RonMaimon Thanks, I will see if I can pick up a copy, it looks pretty cool from the excerpts on amazon

comment QND, CSCO, decoherence and Large N limits
I suspect there is an economic motive in creating headlines that contradict established physics. However, I can not fully understand the profit to the physicists, except that there appears to be no consequences. It makes me think that the physics community has become extremely hierarchical. I find this disconcerting since history has shown repeatedly that developments in physics, both technical and philosophical, are the single greatest predictor of long term human development.

comment Change in attraction of charged bodies
It depends on the proportion of the gap that is filled by the material. I would have to look up the how one would do the non-homogeneous calculation of the dielectric constant, which can be quite complicated for mixed materials, however the glass might have negligible effect depending on configuration.

@Bernhard it is actually, I dropped the dimensions, all factors are of the form hr/km, so I didn't see the need to carry the dimensions since I thought it was self-evident
