Dear Prof. Dr. Maria Spiropulu,

Finally reading Dennis Overbye’s report on your 2018 Physics of the Universe Summit, wow, you are terrifically bold. What an event. Thank you.

Let’s do it all over again, but construct it slowly.
1. How do we define the first moment of time? Let’s agree the big bang is dying.
2. Is the Planck Scale, particularly Planck Time and Planck Length, the right place to begin?
3. Using Max Planck’s definitions for both, dividing Planck Length by Planck Time, yields the speed of light within .001% of our 2019 reconfirmed laboratory speed. What does that say about Planck’s calculations? Does light drive the Planck scale?
4. What is happening between the Planck scale and the wave-particle duality (which I’ve call the CERN scale)?
5. At what point along the scale from the Planck units to the wave-particle duality do quantum fluctuations begin?

Now, I am going back through your work to see if I can find your answers to those questions somewhere online.

Everybody has gotten familiar with Zoom and other collaboration and recording tools; maybe it’s time to do your summit again? If we find sponsors, might you be interested?

Dear Prof. Dr. Maria Spiropulu,

More than three years ago! How time flies! I just bumped into your Twitter @MariaSpiropulu account, so I am now following you! I also revisited your website. Terrific picture, but it was up there years ago. I then went to your academic site (and the second page) as recommended. …doesn’t seem to have changed much.

Where’s the quick access to your most recent thinking!?! Twitter isn’t deep enough. Perhaps your ArXiv activity is best!

Now, on darker matters, there are two pages that I would love to have you debunk:
• November 2019:  https://81018.com/map-the-universe/#11b
• October 2018: https://81018.com/dark/

Whatever you say will help!  Everybody seems to be afraid to be critical. Please, do not hesitate!

Thanks so much. I wish you continued success!

Most sincerely,

Dear Prof. Dr. Maria Spiropulu,

The extended CERN family may feel like you’ve just hit a wall with the diphoton results. Yet, there are good results emerging. Numbers of people are calling to re-examine the basic-basic assumptions and first principles that undergirds experimental work. Perhaps it would be good to go all the way back to the Newton-Leibniz debate [1] to ask questions like, “Could space-time be derivative and finite? Could symmetry-continuity be infinite?” [2] Could a simple continuity equation for space-time be defined from the so-called singularity within the Planck scale and go all the way to the Age of the Universe? Because that’s been done, let us ask, “Might the first 67 notations from the Planck scale to the CERN-scale be meaningful?” [3]

If we use base-2 notation, there are about 202.34 notations from Planck Time to the Age of the Universe. Those first 67 notations up to the CERN-scale have potentially helpful data and a natural inflation. Our chart is here: https://81018.com/chart/

That chart is horizontally-scrolled and has over 1300 very simple calculations.

This progression of numbers from the Planck Scale to the CERN scale is assuredly idiosyncratic, but quite curious for its logic and simplicity. It just might be a place for pure math and geometry that defines the earliest structural possibilities that are beyond the wires of physicality. The Langlands programs are one option to carry this research forward. Of course there are many other approaches as well including work with bifurcation theory, cellular automaton, scalar field theory, and so on.

1. May I keep you posted on our work to develop this chart further?
2. Do you have any comments, suggestions, or advice? Thanks.

Most sincerely,

Bruce E. Camber
A rough-and-incomplete start for an analysis of each doubling: https://81018.com/1-202/

[1] That key two-year debate (1715-1716) between Leibniz and Newton (through Samuel Clarke) is far from over!

[2] Space-and-time are increasingly seen as derivative and finite.

[3]  One of our goals is to define an ideal, universal symmetry-and-continuity that give rises to the space and time that can be measured. It takes the better part of 67 doublings of the Planck Length and 84 doublings of Planck Time. These doublings continue to the current 202nd notation such that we postulate that all simple symmetries, symmetry-breaking and SUSY are tangibly related. Our research of these numbers in the large horizontally-scrolled chart is on-going. It includes the dimensionless constants, nondimensionalization, renormalization and the role of infinity.

The Planck scale within these web pages is interpreted quite differently.

CERN scale: Within the chart, the CERN scale may well be defined between notations 60 to 80, yet it seems that most of the work of ATLAS and LHC is within notations 66-67-68.
