The main issue is these NegProbs have no +, *,_.

the good thing with such a side job is free parking almost anywhere, the boring part is all the emails one has to skim through, mostly about yoga pants. Hardly any time for investigating negative probabilities. (most academics need a side job to make the ends meet, why not one with free parking almost anywhere)

You look a bit like Mark Wahlberg here. (but tougher )

At least finally a new boss! And hopefully faster cars (electric I hope, because silence is golden) !

Could it be that there are some wrong assumptions in physics somewhere that currently are ''fixed" with negative quasi probabilities?

Of course. More people should study Kant.

### Re: negative transition probability

hemm I see if I do not put a lower boundary on particle size to $l_p$ then I get negative Fake probabilities (under the atomism interpretation of the mystical world). The point particle idea is a disaster!

Negative probabilities = Fake News about Fake probabilities, sorry I mean True News about Fake probabilities.

And do not mistake Fake with not useful. Fake news are very useful and used a lot by top politicians and traded on by real traders.

Or as they say;

Probability Fake it 'til you Probably make it!

Until quantum physics is fully understood negative pseudo probabilities seems useful

The book quantum quarks by Watson also talks about negative probabilities, I think right up your pentaquark!

Three quarks for Muster Mark!
Sure he hasn't got much of a bark
And sure any he has it's all beside the mark.
But O, Wreneagle Almighty, wouldn't un be a sky of a lark
To see that old buzzard whooping about for uns shirt in the dark
And he hunting round for uns speckled trousers around by Palmerstown Park?
Hohohoho, moulty Mark!
You're the rummest old rooster ever flopped out of a Noah's ark
And you think you're cock of the wark.
Fowls, up! Tristy's the spry young spark
That'll tread her and wed her and bed her and red her
Without ever winking the tail of a feather
And that's how that chap's going to make his money and mark!
