A couple of people have responded to your previous emails and the
general thrust of these responses would suggest that no one quite
understands what it is that you are trying to do.  Frankly, I don't
understand what it is that you are trying to do.

This makes it difficult to give advice.

So, to resolve this, why don't you explain:

a) what data you have, and
b) what question or hypothesis you are seeking to address from these
data

I have tried to take the average of resulting t-tables after appending
40,000 ttests each time,but this practice never seem to converge to one
value ,not even after days of calculations .
I have also tried to work with the significant level only ,but this did
not
get me anywhere,either.
