Abstract

I contemplate the possibility that the mismatch between the maximally symmetric point (the free fermionic point) and the strictly self-dual point in the Narain moduli space plays a role in the string vacuum selection. The role of self-duality in the recent formulation of quantum mechanics from an equivalence postulate, and the new perspective that it offers on the foundations of quantum gravity and the origin of mass, are discussed.
