Abstract

Fryberger's self-consistency condition for the mean leptonic mass in QED with bare-mass zero and a quantum-gravitational cutoff indicates that there exist six flavors of quarks but only three flavors of leptons. For three flavors there is an explicit expression for the charged lepton mass operator.
