Dear Orion:

What if the universe is best described by Euler’s equation

and we live in an exponential universe? *More… *Hawking may have

grasped it when in his 2016 PBS-TV series, Genius, he says,

“Everything in existence (is) expanding exponentially…”

We’ll forgive him when he adds “in every direction.” *More…*

But, what if Hawking is wrong when he says that we started

from , “…an infinitely hot, infinitely dense point.” Even his old

friend and co-author, Neil Turok, says he’s wrong. But what if

the universe started most simply, but infinitesimally at the Planck

base units of Length and Time, and at the very small Planck Mass

and Planck Charge, and we quietly expanded exponentially?

I invite you to take a look a chart that starts at the Planck Time and goes

to the Age of the Universe (the fullness of time, or the Now) in just 202

base-2 notations. There is enough granularity to see if the numbers cohere

and carry some logic. *Chart*…

What if all these simple numbers within this chart provide

a credible path, a natural inflation imposing a certain isotropy-and-

homogeneity throughout the universe?

What if this natural inflation actually works for electroweak baryogenesis

within the current Standard Model of Big Bang cosmology, i.e. the only parts

of that theory being discounted are the initial conditions and the Inflationary Epoch?

That chart at least posits credible concepts and numbers for the expansion

to the baryogenesis and quark epochs and then to the current time.

What if we’ve had it wrong since 1716 when Leibniz forfeited the debate to Newton

regarding absolute space and time and space-time-light are all profoundly relational?

~Note: The first second of the universe emerges between notations 143 and 144 where

the Hadron Epoch picks up out of the total 202 notations to the current Age of the Universe.

Crazy? Not really. It’s a keyhole to John Wheeler’s plea for simplicity:

“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?”

As silly as it all sounds, there just may be something to it. Thank you.

Most sincerely,

Bruce

Dear Orion –

You might find some of our work to be of interest.

It originates from a high school in New Orleans:

The title of the most recent work,

“How did it all begin? And, what does it mean?”

https://81018.com/2016/06/01/quiet/

And just for fun, I’ll provide a link to a bit of writing that asks questions,

Thanks.

Best wishes,

Bruce
