## 1. The Special Rules for a Valid Canonical Quantization

#### Finding the Primitive Ground State

## 2. The Special Rules for a Valid Affine Quantization

**Note:**$p,q\to p;g$ in $|p:q\rangle $)

#### Finding the New Primitive Ground State

## 3. Two Toy Models: One for CQ, One for AQ

## 4. The Benefits of an Affine Quantization for Field Theories

#### 4.1. A Brief Overview of Quantum Field Theory

#### 4.2. A Typical Model of a Covariant Scalar Field

**Comment:**Consider, a rain storm that has a rain quantity=(qu-r) per hour that is $0<(qu-r)<\infty $. If $(qu-r)=0$, there simply is no rain. If instead, it was a snow storm, a similar story could be a snow quantity=(qu-s), where $0<(qu-s)<\infty $. In fact, the physics of both is identical when $(qu-r)=(qu-s)=0$. So we ignore rain and snow when they are absent.
