Dear Prof. Dr. Robert DiSalle:

Pi Day nonsense was not what the UN had in mind when they adopted it as the International Day of Mathematics. I would like to challenge Pi Day people to take pi a bit more seriously so I wrote up: https://81018.com/pointing/ That document is currently the homepage for https://81018.com.  A backup page is here: https://81018.com/starts-2/

Might you have any suggestions to tighten it up?

Thank you.

Dear Prof. Dr. Robert DiSalle:

We are trying to find a true scholar within the history and foundations of of science and philosophy 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. It is a fascinating integrated view of our universe. Of course, in 1957 Kees Boeke did do an introductory base-10 chart but he made no further claims.

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. https://81018.com/introduction
Symmetry is symmetry:  https://81018.com/symmetry

Of course, only math can fill those first 60 or so notations. Who might make sense of that math? Sir Martin? Barrows? Maybe Langlands? Perhaps Wilczek? Might you?

I’ll continue dabbling with the model. As idiosyncratic as it is, have we stumbled on to something? That little model works wonders for space and time!

My simple theory: https://81018.com/spacetime/
Natural Inflation: https://81018.com/thrust/

Using the baseball metaphor, I know in this game, we are well outside the left field lines. Idiosyncratic would be a kind description of our project!  Is it just specious thinking or could it possibly be dressed up and brought out onto the playing field?

Thank you.

Most sincerely,

Bruce Camber
