Dear Prof. Dr. Albert-Laszlo Barabasi:
I sent a note to Kim Albrecht this morning when I discovered the short video on the Science magazine’s website, The Network Behind the Cosmic Web. I believe the reason networks cohere from the microscopic to the macroscopic is that is all begins at the Planck units and expands using base-2 exponentiation creating an isotropic and homogeneous universe in just over 202 notations. Within the human scale vis-a-vis Planck Length from 67 (particles) to 134 (up in the range of the International Space Station), there is a certain openness currently known as quantum fluctuations that provides for the diversity and exceptions. More on that to come.
I entered Boston University through the Cohen/Wartofsky door and the Boston Colloquium for Philosophy of Science. In 1971, it became my new religion. I was an associate of Synectics Education (an Arthur D. Little invention-lab spin off with WJJ Gordon), a tag-a-long with Arthur Loeb (Philomorphs) and Bucky, and a groupie of Dennis Meadows and Jay Forrester at Sloan.
Of course, I would so thoroughly enjoy hearing from you. The letter to the AAAS that eventually brought me to you is posted on our website.
Congratulations on your work. Magnificent.
