Jack, you said
"... if you locally gauge the space-time translation
group you get Einstein's 1916 theory of General Relativity ...
... you get a torsion force field if you also
locally gauge the Lorentz group.
You get even more force fields if you locally gauge the special
conformal transformations and the dilation transformation. ...".

You also, in another message, atttached an image (attached here)
from the History of the World, Part I, quoting Moses as saying
"..these fifteen...Oy!!...these ten commandments! ...".
Was that a reference to the 15-parameter conformal group
being reduced to the 10-parameter Poincare/antideSitter group
due to the action of Earth's gravitational field ?
