There are a lot of very powerful tools in AT, and I get the feeling that we just needs to bring the right combination of them to bear on the Hodge conjecture.

As opposed to, say, the Mass Gap problem or the Navier-Stokes equations, which (a) don't have the same kind of mathematics flinging about, and (b) require more real-world applications. (Heck, with the Navier-Stokes equations, I don't even know what a proof would

looklike.)## no subject
