Sorry if this is not the right list for this question.
Is there a way to suspend some of the automatic simplifications that
calc performs? In particular I am interested in suspending the
assumption that multiplication is commutative. This would allow for
symbolic calculations with entities that are not necessarily numbers
or elements of some vector space.
Thanks

Most precious among the relics remaining of Peter's skeleton in the
Vatican are 29 fragments of one of his skulls. (St. Peter's other
skull is preserved in a reliquary at the Cathedral of St. John
Lateran.)
