Dear Prof. Dr. Brian Josephson:

Might we redefine pi (π)? As follows:

Pi (π) is the concrescence of continuity, symmetry, and harmony from which all circles and spheres evolve.” That statement opens at least ten key points to explore:

I hope you are well and life is good.

Dear Prof. Dr. Brian Josephson:

Seven years later and we continue our rather idiosyncratic exploration of the universe encapsulated by 202 base-2 notations from the Planck units. I thought you might find these twelve summaries of interest. Thank you.

Most sincerely,


Key conclusions:
The first instant of space-time of our universe is defined by the Planck base units.
A primordial sphere manifests, again defined by the Planck units and pi.
With the sphere are the de facto harmonies of the Fourier Transform.
There is one PlanckSphere per PlanckSecond.
The rate of expansion is 53.911 tredecillion planckspheres per second.
Planck Time is equal to 5.39116(13)×10−44 seconds
The PlanckSphere is the most essential, foundational unit to define the universe.
That PlanckSphere is foundationally defined by pi.
Pi (and the sphere) are defined by continuity-symmetry-harmony.
The Planck base units uniquely identify every instant and everything within the universe.
These Planck base units are dynamic numbers constantly expanding with every instant.
We apply base-2 notation to instantiate a system for counting planckspheres.
There are just 202 notations from that first instant to this very moment in time.
The first 64 notations are generally below our thresholds for measurement.
… It is a domain for Langlands programs and string theory and consciousness.

Dear Prof. Dr. Brian Josephson:

I would like to talk with you about base-2 exponential notation from the Planck Length to the Observable Universe whereby the known universe is contained within the 202 notations (layers, doubling, or steps). We had the help of a NASA scientist with that calculation.  JP Luminet’s also made a calculation for us. Those calculations provide an ordered set within a very granular environment; but more, I believe cellular automaton, most recently by Stephen Wolfram (Mathematica) might readily apply to the first 20 to 30 notations. Benoit Mandelbrot’s work might then follow. At Notation-65 the fermions and protons begin to emerge.

Why has the academic community ignored this simple ordering system based on the Planck Length and base-2?

I was a personal friend of Phylis & Phil Morrison when Powers of Ten came out. That took a high school teacher (Kees Boeke) to lead the way. It seems to me that even Max Planck could have stopped long enough to make some modest speculations about a base-2 progression back in 1905. Alfred North Whitehead’s point-free geometries may be the basis to create an unusual scientific platform whereby space increasingly becomes derivative of geometries and time derivative of numbers, ratios and sequences. We’ve become quite speculative observing how major transitions involve tunneling: Your tunnels. Exit tunnels for ribosomal proteins. Birthing tunnels. Perhaps someday we can go into the Einstein-Rosen tunnel and begin to calculate when-where-and-how to exit!

My question is simple, “Why not use base-2 notation from the Planck Length to the Observable Universe as a simple ordering tool?” Might simple embedded geometries be consistently and meaningfully extended throughout it all? Thanks.
