comment Value of weak force coupling constant
315 in my edition, but comparing for your page 55, I think your version might be 4 pages behind, ie. I guess 311 for you. At the end of a calculation involving muons.

comment Value of weak force coupling constant
OK, but we can still quote values of the couplings at a given scale. If we assume the same energy level for all of them, how does the strength of the weak coupling compare to the others?

comment Value of weak force coupling constant
Does that not apply to the strong and EM couplings? Is the weak force a special case?

comment weak interaction coupling constant
Looking at wikipedia, it seems to reference the hyperphysics page. Any suggestions for other sources to compare with?

comment What grounds the difference between space and time?
@HalSwyers No, I may have phrased the question badly. A more detailed discussion outlining the position I was trying to present is given in the following paper by Craig Callender: philosophyfaculty.ucsd.edu/faculty/ccallender/FQX.pdf. A related idea is presented in 'What Makes Time Different from Space?' by Bradford Skow, Noûs Volume 41, Issue 2, pages 227–252, June 2007.

comment What grounds the difference between space and time?
Thanks for this. Do you have any references / links etc. with more detail on the idea in your final paragraph that without time there would be no space?
