## Main Question or Discussion Point

new paper by Kovtun and Zee

http://arxiv.org/abs/hep-ph/0604169

idea of composite neutrino

earlier we discussed Sundance Bilson-Thompson topological preon model incorporated into quantum gravity by Lee Smolin

and described in the online Lecture Series

It might be interesting for QG if the Sundance preon model is successful because it fits in naturally with spin networks. So my question is:

this composite neutrino idea of Kovtun and Zee, how well does it compat with the Sundance kit for building all the basic particles from framed braids?
