Some mathematicians said that general topology in general and theory of proximity spaces in particular are dead (meaning that no new discoveries appear in this field of mathematics).
I have discovered a theory which generalizes general topology in general and theory of proximity spaces in particular, opening a new major area of research.
It is described in this draft book.
So general topology "resurrected".
Where are the celebration and fireworks proclaiming: "General topology is alive!"?
I am an amateur mathematician and my speaking English (and also my purse to buy air tickets) is still not good enough to participate in scientific conferences.
I am not allowed to submit to either arXiv or nLab.
Something is wrong: There should be a celebration of general topology being alive, but this does not happen. What is wrong?
Well, one thing because which this does not happen is that I have not (yet) solved any specific open problem (not counting open problems which I myself formulated). But what else keeps the world off celebration?
My question is not a duplicate of Publishing vs. putting work online under a free license because at that question I ask about how citing (not acceptance in general) of my work may be influenced by its license and method of publication. Here I however ask about acceptance (not citing) of my work independently on its method of publication.
It is surely not a duplicate of I believe I have solved a famous open problem. How do I convince people in the field that I am not a crank?, because in this situation I have not solved a famous open problem.
It is not a duplicate of Creating a community around my research book, because in that question I ask what to do but in this question why does it happen. These are entirely different questions.
