symmetry. [Being in a Lorentzian noncompact framework, we did not ad-

dress here questions such as the resolvent of D when £ is a Hilbert space,

which we did not need at this stage; eventually one may however have

to deal with the reasons that motivated the additional requirements on

triples in the Riemannian compact context; note that here the restriction

to an open orbit was needed in order to have bounded commutators [D,

a]

in the Hilbertian context, but a good choice of£ could lift the restriction.]

That framework should be naturally extendible to the supersymmetric

context, which is the one considered in

[FGR]

with modified spectral

triples and is natural also for the problems considered here since e.g.

DiEBRac and D(HO) are UIR of the corresponding supersymmetries.

(vii) If we want to incorporate "everything," the (external) symmetry

g

should

be the Poincare group SO(l,

3)

·lR.4 in the ambient Minkowski space (pos-

sibly modified by the presence of matter) and

50(2,

3)q in the qAdS4

black holes, or possibly some supersymmetric extension. The unified (ex-

ternal) symmetry could therefore be something like a groupoid. The lat-

ter should be combined in a subtle way (as hinted e.g. in

[St07])

with the

"internal" symmetry associated with the various generations, colors and

flavors of (composite) "elementary" particles in a generalized Standard

Model, possibly in a noncommutative geometry framework analogous to

what is done in

[Co06, CCM, Ba06].

There would of course remain

the formidable task to develop quantized field theories on that back-

ground, incorporating composite QED for photons on AdS as in

[FF88]

and some analog construction for the electroweak model (touched in part

in

[Fr!2l00])

and for QCD, possibly making use of some formalism coming

from string theory.

(viii) The Gelfand isomorphism theorem permits to realize commutative invo-

lutive algebras as algebras of functions on their "spectrum." Finding a

noncommutative analog of it has certainly been in the back of the mind

of many, since quite some time (see e.g.

[St05]).

We now have theories

and many examples of deformed algebras, quantum groups and noncom-

mutative manifolds. The above mentioned quadruples could provide a

better understanding of that situation.
