comment Why is the chiral symmetry only $SU(3) \times SU(3)$ and not $SU(6)$?
Then you would still have to write something like $\sigma_2u_R^\dagger$ instead of $u_L$ in your 6-component vector. In any case, you violate either $SU(3)_c$ (and baryon number $U(1)_V$) or Lorentz invariance.

comment How do Cooper pairs form?
Yes, of course. I meant ingredients beyond BCS, that are required to get condensation in the presence of the repulsive Coulomb force.

$L$ and $R$ are in the same representation of $SU(3)_c$, but in different representations of the Lorentz group (there is something wrong with your Dirac operator, by the way, now that you wrote in 2-component notation), so your proposed flavor symmetry mixes different representations of $SO(3,1)$.

$\bar{q}_Li\gamma^\mu D_\mu q_R=0$. Your symmetry does not act on the fields.

comment Superfluid Fountain
At any temperature below the lambda point (2.2K) liquid helium is a mixture of a superfluid and a normal fluid. The superfluid fraction goes to zero as $T\to T_c$. If you set up a temperature gradient, then the normal fluid flows to low T, and the superfluid flows to high T. This is why the superfluid flows into the heated pipe. The seal ensures that the normal fluid cannot get out, and you get the fountain effect.

Your second equation is right (I expanded my answer).

comment Incompressible Navier-Stokes pressure solve in simulations
Not sure what you mean by "what to do". Obviously, hundreds of text books have been written about analytical solutions to these equations, and about methods for solving them numerically. Many codes can be downloaded, optimized for all sorts of conditions.
