Not her best: Back From the Future, Discover Magazine, August 26, 2010 We just can’t assume the arrow of time is fundamental. It appears to be derivative of light — https://81018.com/c/ — as it creates space, so there are many good questions to examine all around Planck’s most basic formulas.

You are quite a remarkable person;
and, Peter Woit was wired a bit too tightly that moment.
The finite-infinite relation has not been addressed very well:
https://81018.com/infinity We all seem to be afraid of God talk.
I commend you for your boldness.
Regarding the IaF: Any proposals from Google Mind Team?
Could people from these two groups work together on a joint venture?

Dear Dr. Merali:
You are doing very important work. To have a working reference, I’ve started a webpage about it here: https://81018.com/2016/10/14/merali/
If you’d like me to change anything, just tell us what.
I suspect there are many people working as hard as possible, night and day, to the same end goals of redefining science and religion. I have been focused on it since 1969 (college graduation).
When I found your science and non-duality page, I thought, “More of Zeeya’s people!”
To construct the universe, what about starting at the Planck scale? If we initially focus just on time, length, mass and charge and use the simplest extension, base-2 notation, the results render a rather dramatic result: https://81018.com/chartToday’s homepage — http://81018.com — is a focus on Hawking. Last week it was a focus on time: https://81018.com/2016/10/02/2october2016/ Thanks.

Thank you, Zeeya, for being such an insightful person.
I enjoy your writing.
You’ll see a horizontally-scrolled chart of the 202 base-2 notations
from the Planck base units to the Age of the Universe.
Here continuity and symmetry are our cornerstones of logic and science.
It stands to reason that there is something between the Planck
base units and quarks, fermions and photons.
I thought you might find this of some interest.
