Dear Prof. Dr. Neil Turok:

Within an article that was a homepage for several weeks, these statements are made:

Neil Turok is the director of the one of world’s leading research centers, Perimeter Institute, in Waterloo, Ontario. He came from Cambridge University where he co-authored many articles with Stephen Hawking. Courageously, he broke with Hawking and declared to the world, “The Big Bang theory is wrong.”

Within the body of that page, this statement is made:

https://81018.com/concepts/ The finite-infinite debate has been most discussed among those who are religious and those who are against all religions. This alternative model of the universe makes that debate seem old and tired. It answers the challenges of folks like Tegmark, Turok, and Arkani-Hamed. It changes the paradigm so infinity truly becomes part of the scientific debate, not just a mathematical problem that needs to be normalized.

I thought you might be pleased.  Commonsense and logic are difficult to find within our debates today. Notwithstanding, I am entirely open to updates, changes, and deletions of these few lines within that article.

Thank you.

Most sincerely,

Dear Prof. Dr. Neil Turok:

Might you comment on our homepage today, particularly on the first goal of our website where we reference your work?

The impasse within the Standard Model is highly documented, especially since the diphoton results (2015, 2016). In his July 20, 2017 IAS lecture — “Where in the world are SUSY and WIMPS?” — Nima Arkani-Hamed  says, “…go back and think about these things again from a totally different view, something completely, radically, 100% out of left field, totally different from anything we’ve thought about before.”

The power of 2, just doubling the four basic Planck numbers, creates a very special flow within the universe where space and time and infinity are redefined.

There is merit in simplicity yet we (the scientific community) distrust the truly simple (and often naive people like me).

If you would comment, I would be ever so grateful.  Thank you.



Four primary goals

1. Unplug the big bang theory.  It’s on life support.Sphere to tetrahedron-octahedron couplet   We can replace the strained logic of “infinitely hot, infinitely dense” with a natural inflation. Neil Turok’s perpetual starts is the first notation where infinitesimal spheres manifest. The 202.34 mathematically-integrated notations begin with the logic of pi and a simplicity that redefines space, time and infinity. We start with the Planck base units and go to this very moment of time.  More…  Chart…

Congratulations, Prof Dr. Neil Turok.

When I listen to your lectures,
I feel like I am surrounded by goodness
and what I am hearing is from a sweet therapist coaching me along my way.

Indeed, congratulations, on a life well lived.

I couldn’t help but pick up the discussions about the big bang:
I also put it out on my LinkedIn site:

Of course, I wish you continued successes with your work.

Most sincerely,

Dear Prof. Dr. Neil Turok,

Thank you for your conference, Time in Cosmology. What an extraordinarily astute group of people; the videos of the sessions are most helpful.

I have created a few links to the conference, to your work and to the Perimeter Institute. You all have already greatly informed us on our journey. We expect you will continue to do so.

There currently are three key pages:

If there is anything you’d like changed, please just say the word! Thanks.

Now, thinking about time and the large-scale universe, perhaps another conference could be entertained, Time in the small-scale and human scale universe. Before the first three minutes, time is well in to the large-scale universe. Of the 200 notations, the first second from Planck Time is within notations 144-145. The first day (86400 seconds) is between notations 160 and 161. A light year is between notation 168 and 169. Now we finally get inside cosmology.

If we engage the numbers generated using base-2 from the Planck base units, it all appears to expand rather quietly right out beyond the need for a big bang.

PS. Yes, I know how naive and idiosyncratic our work is. The simplicity of the logic and math, however, has caught our attention. The numbers seem to speak louder than words. Although temperature is a problem, I think in time we’ll be able to adjust that line of figures with some kind of “reasonable” rationale, perhaps a different algorithm. -B

Dear Prof. Dr. Turok:

What a wonderful introduction and lecture.
You are so powerfully endearing.

I would like to invite you to demythologize and debunk
our work that started in a high school geometry class
when we divided the edges of a tetrahedron in half and
connected the four new vertices. There was a half-sized
tetrahedron in each corner and an octahedron in the middle.
We did the same for the octahedron and kept going further
within. In about 45 steps we were in the range of a fermion.
In another 67 steps we had arrived at the Planck scale.

When we multiplied that same tetrahedron by 2, in about
89 steps we were out to the Age of the Universe. Great fun, yet
it took us two years to begin to believe that base-2 notation
from the Planck Scale had not yet been done. Base-10, of course,
had Kees Boeke’s imprint and Gerard t’Hooft recently did his Time in Powers of Ten.

For us, base-2, the Planck base units, an inherent geometry and
a simple little continuity equation from the smallest to the largest
possible measurements of length, time, charge, mass, and temperature
just seemed like the achievement of a lifetime. Yes, we did have fun.
It is a great little STEM tool.  (But it all just may be silliness.)

When we started filling in the numbers —
https://81018.com/chart/ — it was simplicity incorporated!
But…it did raise questions!

Obviously, our logic is wrong or the old big bang is wrong.
We named the progression from the singularity to the fermion
and friends, the Quiet Expansion. It must be pure math with a
very special reality kin to Dark Energy and Dark Matter.

We would love to know what you think.
You can be rough on us. We can take it.
Thanks again for all that you do.

Most sincerely,
Bruce Camber

PS. Thank you as well for your introduction to
Art McDonald and his work with neutrinos in subterranean Sudbury.

We will be having discussion groups around your online video,
The Astonishing Simplicity of Everything. And we were especially
happy to hear that you believe we will eventually understand the
reason for the simplicity, homogeneity and isotropy of our universe home.
