* Mesons and Baryons are made of the same quarks. Describing both
as simple composites of asymptotically free quasiparticles with a unique
effective mass value predicts hadron masses, magnetic moments and hy-
perfine splittings [5-7].
" Lattice QCD can give all the answers.
" Lattice calculations disagree on whether the H dibaryon is bound. No
hope of settling this question until much bigger lattices are available.
" Light (uds) SU(3) symmetry and Heavy Quark symmetry (cbt) are good
" Light (uds) SU(3) symmetry is bad. All nontrivial hadron states violate
SU(3). All light V, A and T mesons have good isospin symmetry with
flavor mixing in (u.d) space and no si component; e.g. p, w.
" The s-quark is a heavy quark. Flavor mixing in mass eigenstates predicted
by SU(3) is not there. Most nontrivial strange hadron states satisfy (scb)
heavy quark symmetry with no flavor mixing.; e.g. 0, 0, T.
An underlying dynamics describes many meson and baryon properties pri-
marily in terms constituent quarks which are the same in mesons and baryons.

The mass difference m, - mu has the same value 3% when calculated in two
independent ways from baryon masses and meson masses [5-7]. The same
approach applied to mb - me gives
(mb - ma)Ba, = M(Ab) - M(A,) = 3356 MeV, (2a)
(mb - m)m, 3(MB - MD-) + MB - MD = 3338 MeV. (2b)
The ratio m has the same value 2.5% for mesons and baryons.
