This is patently obvious because I do not use the constraint in Eq (5) and in return the Zlosnik et al approach does not have the coupling that I have. They get the coupling from using Eq (5). <br /><br />The reason I don't have that is, as I have said several times, that my model is a covariant generalization of Verlinde's model, not more and not Sabine Hossenfelderhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/06151209308084588985noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-22973357.post-67072048997717947622019-03-21T04:10:56.766-04:002019-03-21T04:10:56.766-04:00Hi again Sabine,
