Dear Prof. Dr. Harvey R. Brown:
We are trying to find somebody within the history of science and philosophical thinking who has entertained the concept of encapsulating the universe within the 202 base-2 notations starting at the Planck units and going up to the Observable Universe and the Age of the Universe.
Our little project began in 2011 in a high school geometry class where we were chasing the tetrahedral-octahedral clusters from our classroom model back to the CERN scale (dividing by 2) in about 47 jumps, and then back to the Planck scale in 67 additional jumps. The next day when we multiplied by 2, in just 90 jumps we were out to the Observable Universe and the Age of the Universe. It became our sweet little STEM tool until we started questioning the first 67 notations.
Math is math. Continuity is continuity. Symmetry is symmetry. Of course, only math can fill those notations. Who might make sense of that math? Sir Martin? Barrows? Maybe Langlands? Maybe Wilczek? How about you?
I’ll continue dabbling with it. As idiosyncratic as it is, have we stumbled on to something? That little model works wonders for space and time!
I know in this game, we are well outside the left field lines. Is it just specious thinking or could it possibly be dressed up and brought out onto the playing field?
