Dear Dr. Dean:
We unwittingly jumped into the deep end of the pool.
A simple logic has us treading the waters, but it has been
six years now. It all started inside a high school geometry class;
we divided the edges of a tetrahedron in half, connected the new
vertices and found the half-sized tetrahedrons in each corner and
an octahedron in the middle. Inside the octahedron we discovered
the six half-size octahedrons in each corner an a tetrahedron in
each of the eight faces.
We didn’t know what we didn’t know so we continued dividing.
In 45 steps we were at the CERN-scale. Within 67 more steps
we were at the Planck scale. Rather naively, the next day, we
multiplied by 2 and in 90 steps we were somewhere out around
the Observable Universe. The Universe in a box in 202 steps.
We then discovered Kees Boeke’s 1957 base-10 work, Cosmic View,
and realized that our work was a bit unique, but probably flawed
with our limited mathematics and physics. Or, is it?
When we attended a NASA Hackathon this past April/May, we
started the process of trying to visualize what we had.
Might you find our project of some interest?
Would you counsel with us?
