The above paper was delivered at the April APS 2006 meeting in Dallas Texas. A link to the talk is here:
9:54 AM–10:06 AM, Sunday, April 23, 2006 Abstract: H12.00008 : Schwinger's Measurement Algebra, Preons and the Lepton Masses
The slides and notes for the 10 minute speech that goes with it is here: Very short APS06 slides and speech.
While the talk will cover some theory, the arXiv paper given above is phenomenological. I found the formula while messing around with a modification for the foundations of quantum mechanics. A rather hard to read and out of date write up exists here:

The above theory paper is defective in many ways. I regret the alternate probability interpretation it includes -- it is useful only if one wants the theory to work in mixed signature Clifford algebras. Some of the later sections having to do with the fundamental fermion are incomplete. I haven't even started the conclusion. The abstract and synopsis are in shambles. The second appendix, on astrophysics, is the result of only an hour of typing. Undoubtedly the whole paper is shot through with typographical errors and arithmetic mistakes which will make reading it difficult.
I went to the Particle And Nuclei International Conference in Santa Fe, New Mexico in late October (2005) and will presented a poster entitled "Particle Symmetry Breaking in Density Matrix Formalism with Geometric Algebra". I've uploaded the poster pages here:

I am also releasing an early version of a rather long paper that supports the above. This is very incomplete, has not been thoroughly edited and is in the process of being written. But it has some applications of geometric algebra to the problem of analyzing the Stern-Gerlach experiment that may be of interest: Incomplete Unfinished Error-Ridden long PANIC paper (pdf from LaTex)
And I've uploaded some pictures I took in New Mexico here: Pictures from Santa Fe PANIC 2005 meeting

Some older papers, in the order in which I think that they should be read. Some of these are referenced by the above, but the above paper is complete in itself:

I don't like heights, but here I am taking a self picture at 80 feet above the ground. I'm marking a grain alcohol plant so that it can be taken down and reassembled in Iowa. That's the Seattle equivalent of sunshine in the background.
Markings are done with a waterproof pen. You can see some marked "TM", which means "Tower, Mid height". It's a beautiful machine. After it's taken apart, it will be shipped by rail. Then I appear to have been volunteered to go to Iowa to reassemble it. I hope it's not in the middle of winter. (As it turns out, the plant will be reassembled without me.)
Medium sized industrial equipment like this has lot more small parts than it looks. Reassembling them basically means putting together a steel jigsaw puzzle, with power wrenches, welding torches, and a 120 foot crane. My specialty is in getting the electronics and control systems running again. Sometimes this can be tricky, but this plant comes with about a 6" stack of blueprints so I don't expect any major problems.
You take lots of photographs beforehand, and it helps if you label small things according to their approximate position in the machine. But mostly factories are reassembled about the same way that jigsaw puzzles are reassembled. (See, these bird droppings and rust stains? These two pipes have to fit together.) Unlike a jigsaw puzzle, you can buy or build replacement parts for stuff that didn't make the trip.

Upon Julia's Clothes
Whenas in silks my Julia goes,
Then, then, methinks, how sweetly flows
That liquefaction of her clothes.
Next, when I cast mine eyes, and see
That brave vibration each way free,
Oh, how that glittering taketh me!
