Not particularly much. If you want to re-do mathematics, you should get a *lot* less than 90%-ish commonality with reality. Rather, the subject line reminded me more of an idea I've entertained a bit but not developed too far yet: an universe where quantum chromodynamics has been fudged with a bit, with the result that uneven nuclei are more stable than even. Chemistry, cosmology etc. are as usual, the world's just made of like boron and nitrogen etc moreso than carbon and oxygen... John Vertical
