@michiokaku Do you affirm Newton’s absolute space and time? I would enjoy hearing your comments!

Co-founder of Field String Theory explains why the universe has 11 dimensions http://sumo.ly/A1dO via @bigthink
Dear Prof. Dr. Kaku:
Does M-Theory jive with big bang cosmology?
Or, better yet, could it be harmonized within a simple quiet expansion?
Couldn’t the universe have started a bit more simply,
i.e. from the Planck units by engaging base-2 exponentiation,
expanding rather quietly to the first second at notation #143
then rumbling on out to the Age of the Universe within the 202nd notation?
All of human history is within that last notation.
It is simple, sweetly naive, yet rather compelling.
What do you think?

“Who invented the transistor? Who invented the laser? Who invented the computer ..the television? Who invented the robot? Who invented the nanotube?”
Thank you, Prof. Dr. Michio Kaku:
I have been listening to your May 11, 2017 YouTube analysis of the Donald Trump phenomenon.
Is this the best two parties with deep pockets could do? It seems that we need a very-deep analysis of our television culture, liars-cheaters, and the lack of clear thinking.
Yet, we are where we are and we have to make the best of it.
While Arkani-Hamed wants to denigrate space-and-time, and Tegmark wants to throw out infinity, perhaps we should go way back to the Leibniz-Clarke (Newton) debate as a place to start. If infinity is defined as continuity and symmetry and space and time are derivative, we have the same universe, but a radically different way to approach it. http://81018.com
If we take Max Planck’s base units and apply base-2 notation, in just over 202 notations we have the Age of the Universe at the Now (according to Richard A. Muller). Of course, Carlo Rovelli has a bit different take on it.
Those 202+ notations are here: https://81018.com/chart
If this little chart is an accurate description of the universe, it may be more simple than we think. That chart has been used among 6th graders and came out of a New Orleans high school geometry class.
Here, a simple logic tells me, it just may be the anticipated simplicity that Wheeler had intuited when he said, “Behind it all is surely an idea so simple, so beautiful, that when we grasp it — in a decade, a century, or a millennium – we will all say to each other, how could it have been otherwise?” https://81018.com/simple/
If all people are liberated from concepts that cloud and truncate our thinking, what a revolution that might be. If our concepts are clouded, our creativity is truncated as well. Perhaps, we are all little Einsteins and Edison’s waiting to be liberated from the tightness of Newton and the silliness of big bang cosmology.
Your comments? Of course, I know it is idiosyncratic which of course does not speak well for me!
