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 202.34 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 Phil and Phylis 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.
