Dear Prof. Dr. Yurij Baryshev,

1. To remind me of the contents of my prior emails and references to your most current work, I have created a reference page within our website: https://81018.com/2016/10/13/baryshev/

[Please note: That’s this page.] If you ever want changes, updates or deletions to it, just say the word. That page is meant to be helpful.

2. Also, that page could easily be reworked to become a Wikipedia page. We have done this for other scholars, i.e. Petricio Letelier Once the baseline page is up, anybody can easily add to it. Would you like us to start such a page?

3. I believe the key problems with science today go back to a mistake by Aristotle that is not well-known today. Then, Newton’s absolute space and time continues to be a problem because it remains the commonsense view of most people living today. And finally, the continued affirmation of the infinitely hot start of the universe promulgated by Hawking and so many others is problematic. My summary is here: https://81018.com/duped/

I hope you have been spared some of the madness of these days and that your work continues forward. Thank you.

Warmly,

Bruce

Dear Prof. Dr. Yurij Baryshev,

You may remember an earlier email from me where in a high school geometry class we created model of the universe by doubling the Planck base units, then doubling the results over and over again, until in 202 doublings (base-2 notation) we are at the size and age of the universe. That chart is here: https://81018.com/chart

The current homepage for the site is https://81018.com/planck-scale

Is this model meaningful?

Is it worth pursing?

Your insights would be helpful. Thank you.

Warm regards,

Bruce

Dear Prof. Dr. Yurij Baryshev,

Of the many possible roots of conceptual problems, I believe John Wheeler’s search for the most simple* holds the most promise. Hawking’s work is a mess of contradictions within his first epoch which only get worse in his second, third and fourth epochs (which all total together less than a fraction of a fraction a second).

I had to go back to high school to see where we’ve all gone so wrong. To be alive in the past forty years is to know that our theories in cosmology, epistemology, and ontology are very incomplete:

- Why not go back to the Newton-Clarke discussions with Leibniz?
- Why not re-engage our understanding of the infinite?
- Why not allow the infinite to enter our thinking?
- Must we renormalize and regularize every equation?
- Why not let some of those tensions teach us?

Yes, I have been bothering the old guard, from Hawking, to Guth, E.O. Wilson, Antonio Zichichi and others. Long ago, I was the guest of Freeman Dyson (IAS), and more recently of Frank Wilczek (MIT) who wrote *Scaling Mt. Planck*, I, II, III for *Physics Today*, 2001). He was very helpful.

Nobody has given any reason why base-2 notation from the Planck scale is a waste of time. There has been no refutation regarding those first 67 notations. Nobody has said, “There is no possibility…”

It is obvious to me that we all imbibed the big bang theory for such a long time that Hawking’s theoretical fabrication has successfully and rather quietly held most of us in check. But not you… would you spend a little time with me to go over the five questions above?

Thank you.

Most sincerely,

Bruce

**Further introduction**: A good friend was Ted Bastin. Viki Weisskopf introduced me to John Bell whom I visited at CERN. With six of David Bohm’s PhD candidates (1977), we spent seven hours within his *Fragmentation and Wholeness* thinking about points, lines, triangles and tetrahedrons. In 1980 I spent a semester with Olivier Costa de Beauregard at the Institut Henri Poincaré. I met with Alain Aspect on a visit with JP Vigier and Bernard d’Espagnat. Twenty years later, (Bohm had died) I went inside the tetrahedron, then the octahedron. In 2011 I followed that progression to the CERN Atlas scale, then further within to the Planck scale. We caught our breath and began multiplying those Planck numbers by 2 until we were out to the Edge of the Universe, and then out to the Age of the Universe. https://81018.com/home for the history. Beyond all that name dropping above, here is a rambling timeline: https://81018.com/2016/12/31/1947-2016/
