comment Is this pseudo science or real: code found in superstring
I would still like some clarification as to why the question is unclear. It is a yes/no question, I don't think it can get much clearer than that.

comment How to calculate the magnetic and electric fields in an electrical system with arbitrary geometry?
"What mathematical and computational tools exist to calculate the fields around an electrical system of arbitrary geometry?" Seems like a computational physics question, so he should be allowed to post it here or in scicomp. Also see the last bullet of the first paragraph here. He is not specifically asking for software to solve a concrete problem. He's interested in the general techniques.

Summarized what the OP was asking and made the question clear.

What about the mainstream physics policy: " In the case of modern physics, if a theory has not been published in a reputable journal, it is not considered mainstream." and "No, questions and answers about non mainstream physics are not allowed here." as was stated here. I did not find any reputable journals that published the article in the OP. Thus either the question gets closed for the correct reason, or allow the OP to be edited and reopened.

So the question was closed for the wrong reason.

No that's what I got from the rules about mainstream physics. It's a reasonable rule though, but it hasn't got anything to do with the reason the question was closed.

Does it come down to "If it's on arXiv and arXiv only, then you cannot ask any question about it on Physics SE."?

The question is in the title, how is that unclear? I agree that the body of the question should have some rephrasing, but this is an interesting subject so I it frustrates me that this question is closed. It also has a quality answer.

comment Windows 8.1 and Debian dualboot EFI problems
Yes, and during the Debian installation I skipped the installation of Grub because the Debian installer did not detect any OS so I figured it would overwrite the EFI partition.

comment Windows 8.1 and Debian dualboot EFI problems
I didn't copy-paste the command and I was fully aware that it needed two arguments. It would also probably say something like "Must specify a mount point" if I only passed one argument. Also the tutorial assumes that it already exists. If Windows can boot and it (GDisk) identifies /dev/sda2 as an EFI partition, then it should also contain /boot/efi or /mnt/boot/efi, but it didn't. Is the tutorial outdated? Is there a difference in these partitions between 8 and 8.1? Note that the command from the Debian tutorial returned "EFI Boot on HDD"
