Can we get word definitions of some of the technical concepts? Nightcleaner's interest in BF theory suggests that we could show what the Ashtekar variables are, at some honest, non-confusing level. Then Wilson action, and why it takes values in the Lie Algebra of the group, for that matter how the group comes in (ation on the manifold, forget oll the bundle staff), and Circle functions and so on. I go up and down on this; I think it would be boring if it wasn't impossible, and then I think it's a duty to get this across to the bright, self-selected audiance we have here.
