Petition our leading scientific societies: “Please Investigate.”

If “the big bang” fizzles out, does pi (π) emerge?
Please help us to petition our major learned societies about it.

by Bruce E. Camber (first draft)

Pi (π) is the oldest, most-used, least-understood tool to engage the universe and our minds. Its never-ending, never-repeating numbers teach us about continuity. Its conversions of numbers to shapes teach us about symmetries. And, its conversions of spheres to tetrahedrons-octahedrons teach us about basic harmonies that abide in everything, everywhere throughout all time.

Big bang cosmology may well slowly be abandoned as historically constituted due to the results coming in from the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) as well as other scientific research:

This appeal is for the leading scientific organizations throughout our world to look critically at an alternative and to evaluate its major points:

  1. Pi (π) redefines the very nature of the finite-infinite relation. Please go to these webpages for more: and
    Are these conclusions worth exploring further?
  2. Pi (π) is how numbers become circles and spheres. Lines approximate circles at a point we can not discern. Assuming one infinitesimal sphere per unit of Planck’s base units, a simple calculation based on Planck Time, renders 539 tredecillion spheres/second, a cosmological constant, and these infinitesimal spheres most-densely pack the universe.
    Are these points worth exploring further?
  3. 1899: Max Planck’s base units (natural units) define the very first moment of space-time. By applying base-2, we emerged with a mathematical ordering system that can be easily followed. Planck Time, multiplied over and over again, results in well-over 13.81+ billion years within 202 notations. Applied to the PlanckLength, it approximates the size of the universe. Everything, everywhere, for all time is encapsulated.
    Are these points of our most-simple model worth exploring further?

Our world is beset with anxieties. Our old models are not working effectively. There is too much hostility in the world. It is obvious to every thinking person that we need alternative models.

This appeal for judgment is to a country’s learned societies and national academies4 with their leading scholars and scientists. Countries have been ranked by their contributions to scholarly publications and other criteria (very much under construction in June-July 2023). They are:

1. China: Chinese Academy of Sciences: Xi Jinping, Wang Zhigang (Ministry of Science and Technology), Xiaopeng Ren… (many more to come)

2. USA: The American Academy of Arts and Sciences, American Association for the Advancement of the Sciences, and National Academy of Sciences (USA)

3. Germany: The Max Planck Institutes and Helmholtz Associations

4. The UK’s Royal Society and her other learned societies and schools

5. The Japan Academy and the universities of Japan

6. The French Academy of Sciences and other scholarly groups and the universities of France

7. The Korean Academy of Science and Technology

8. Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters

9. Russian Academy of Sciences

10. Royal Swedish Academy of Arts and Science

11. And the Indonesian Academy of Sciences (AIPI), Indian Academy of Sciences, Academy of Science of South Africa (ASSAf), and The Academia Brasileira de Ciências (Brazilian Academy of Sciences) and so many others throughout our world.

If you would like to help us carry this message to the world, please sign our petition.

Thank you. –BEC

[*] Mathcounts: In February 1983 the MATHCOUNTS Foundation was established by the National Society of Professional Engineers, the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, and CNA Insurance. Today it involves every state in the nation and many more major corporations who organize a mathematics competition among middle school students (6-7-8 grades). The above picture is priceless. These kids gathered in the shape of pi (π), with all their expressions (some quite impatient with it all). Symbolically they are engaging the universe. The students are from Massachusetts, the birthplace of the USA where the first battles for independence were fought. Perhaps the seed of a future revolution that will capture our universe has been seeded within some of their hearts and minds.

[†] Learned societies, national academies and universities. Our emerging list is just above. There are several lists but we have used those ordered by Nature magazine and SCImago Institutions Rankings.

[1] “Infinitely-hot” big bang. In 2016 Stephen Hawking confidently told the world that the universe began from an “…infinitely small, infinitely hot, infinitely dense point.” If the earliest universe was infinitely dense, would it have cooled and become smooth in 380,000 years? That’s the question. It defies a certain commonsense logic. Perhaps his death on March 14, 2018 (Pi Day) is a symbolic error correction.

Alan Guth of MIT is a key formulator of the working theory; understandably, he is entirely defensive about his life’s work, as are the thousands of scholar-scientists who have added to and defended the theory over the years. With the results of the JWST, going back to the ESA’s Planck space observatory, it may well be wise to begin to explore other possibilities.

George Efstathiou was a team leader for the ESA Planck space observatory explorations from 2009 to 2013, and he was one of the first to raise questions about our understanding of inflation. They were unable to discern within all the data a signature for gravitational waves triggered by inflation. It would be imprinted on the polarisation of the CMB. The results instead suggest there may be new physics to be discovered in the ESA Planck data (M. Peplow, Planck telescope peers into primordial Universe, Nature (2013).

[2] No beginning. Nobel laureate (2019) James Peebles from Princeton was a leader to document the Cosmic Microwave Background Radiation (CMBR). He is also the most pointed critic that big bang cosmology can not account for the first seconds of the universe.

[3] Slippery slope. The inflaton hypothetical particle needs to be re-examined. There are nine or more disciplines that have not had a place on the grid; it seems that these studies have captured the logic and data that define the first 64 notations that are on the grid but are much too small to be measured.

[5] Much more to come

@BarackObama Meaningful work is everything. Doing what you love is better. See the life of Alexander Smalls. Understanding value is penultimate. We are on the cusp.

Will you review and be open to sign this petition about it?

3:25 PM · Jun 4, 2023 @Yuryu Hi Emma – Should the world’s leading intellectual societies take another look at pi (π)? What does it mean that you have developed the longest continuity equation in history? Perhaps you can help us with The Japan Academy: BTW, you are on our website: and

5:53 PM · Jun 3, 2023 @standupmaths And while you’re at it, how about pi (π)? You did that wonderful interview with Emma. Is that continuity equation the longest in the universe? Or is it infinite and out of this universe? If out, is continuity out, too? How about its symmetry? …its harmony? …in or out?

7:11 AM · May 31, 2023 @physorg_com Andrew Zinin’s interpretative touch (Managing editor, on the images from the James Webb Space Telescope would be helpful. Are the big bang theorists just re-interpreting their product to accommodate the news? I think is a theory that could be reviewed.

9:49 AM · May 28, 2023 @the_xijinping I recently finished writing and editing an open letter that I would like to bring to your attention. It is about Karl Marx’s understanding of mathematics. That page will soon become a homepage. The URL is Would you like to suggest any edits?

5:11 PM · May 23, 2023 @brattray @reidhoffman The big bang is fizzling. That opens the door for new models. We have one for the global scholars to evaluate. Would you please sign the petition to have the world’s leading intellectual organizations evaluate it?



You are always invited.
