Dear Prof. Dr. Geoffrey West,

I believe the deep reason that scalings work as well as they do is that we live in an exponential universe (Euler’s equations all over again) and among the many possible scalings, base-2 notations from the Planck units to the Age of the Universe and the Observable Universe give us a marvelously integrated scale in just 202 doublings.  It is so counter-intuitive, most academic just blanch at the thought of it. It’s just too simple. Even John Wheeler might think it is too simple!

I hope you’ll take a look!  Thanks.

Warm regards,


PS. Why did we all miss it?
