Hi Tim:

Is it fair to say that there are 26 faces of time? https://81018.com/the-firsts/#Table

I know there is a reluctance to open uninvited links, so I’ll copy that list just below.   

Best wishes,

Dear Prof. Dr. Tim Maudlin:

If a relatively-simple, mathematically-predictive model of the universe were to emerge, shouldn’t it either be beaten down or lifted up? Such a model using base-2 notation from the Planck scale, renders a model. Even though it came out of the naïveté of a high school geometry class, it appears to have some possibilities.

Would you have a quick look at a large horizontally-scrolled page with just over 200 columns. You can easily scroll the four Planck base units from their so-called singularity to the current Age of the Universe: https://81018.com/chart/

Does it have any potential? Thank you.

Most sincerely,
