Dear Prof. Dr. Robbert Dijkgraaf,
Earlier today I signed up for your Master Class. And just now, I have spent some time on those websites with citations to you and your work. Congratulations on all your contributions past. Quite remarkable. May you continue to be inspired to continue to challenge us all to think ever more creatively and responsibly! We are a bit impulsive and probably much to quick to jump to conclusions.
I sent you a little Tweet earlier today about some work we backed into from within our high school geometry classes.
It is obvious that we do not have a current or deep understanding of physics, advanced mathematics, or cosmology/astrophysics. Nevertheless, we are using our little paradigmatic base-2 notation from the Planck Length to Observable Universe as an outline to learn more. That we started with a tetrahedron and octahedron also imports simple platonic geometries. Just those two dynamics have raised more questions than we have found answers. That has not stopped us from guessing and making a few wild-and-crazy speculations.
Our work is posted in three places on the web. I’ll paste in a sample below so you can easily check us out.
Of course, your cautions and comments will be read with the greatest respect. Thank you.
