Yes, I am very interested in your work. The references within our website tell the story. So many scholars like you have come at it from so many different directions, yet I find your style, your questions, and your comments appealing.  I have already referred several scholars to your work since updating those references to it.

You can see your response to my initial email here: https://81018.com/meessen/#Response. If you would like to update it, or have me delete it, I will do so immediately. My purpose is always to be educational and to stimulate thought and creativity.

Just with your reference to Namur, I have discovered Dominique Lambert’s work and lectures on Georges Lemaître and also Anne Lemaître, a professeur at Université de Namur.

I will share your explanation with Anthony Aquirre.

Thank you!

Dear Professeur Ordinaire Émérite Dr. Auguste Messen:

I saw that somebody had visited our page about your work.  That page was first posted late in November 2016. The page was incomplete by my standards today, so I’ve started to rework it a little.  As it happens, your message to me on 6 November 2016 is most germane to my work today. I believe the use of the descriptor, point particles, is often a misnomer. The first 64 notations out of 202 base-2 notations from Planck Time to this very moment, today, all have lengths and times well-below our measuring abilities even today.

But before going on, I must ask you a question. You may well be the only one alive who knows what happened in Georges Lemaître’s life and why he switched from his 1927 writing about a cold start of the universe to his well-known 1931 writings about a hot start. Did Planck Temperature influence him? Do you know that story? If so, it would be good to have it in the record books. The work of David Layzer and his then student, Anthony Aguirre*, brought it to my attention. 

As I rework our page about your work and STQ, I thank you again and again for your response to my initial note to you. It is an important introduction to STQ.

My best to you always,


PS. I will continue my work on that reference page.  -BEC

RE:  Your ArXiv posting: “Space-Time Quantization (STQ), Elementary Particles and Dark Matter

Dear Prof. Dr. Auguste Meessen:

I am pondering this line from your article referenced within ArXiv:

Planck’s length L was initially considered to show that c and h, combined with G, define universal units for length, time and mass measurements. Later on, it appeared that the metric of general relativity breaks down inside a spherical mass M when its radius is of the order of ro= GM/c2.

Confession: That our work originates from a high school geometry class – https://81018.com/home/ – tells a story. It continues as a base-2 chart of 200+ notations from the Planck base units to the Age of the Universe: https://81018.com/chart  It is a large, horizontally-scrolled file that simulates the big bang but without the bang. It is an “all natural” inflation.

Even though STQ uses the quantum of length a which is smaller than Planck’s length L, wouldn’t it still be subject to all those studies that fall well within pure mathematics and below the measurable space-time threshold currently around notations 64-67?  Wouldn’t aspects of pointfree geometries, bifurcation theory, Langlands programs, cellular automaton, etc. apply? Wouldn’t it still be subject to a base-2 progression that would look a lot like our progression today?

Thank you.

Most sincerely,


Bruce E. Camber
