YouTube: “The Scale of Life”
Dear Prof. Dr. Geoffrey West:
You beg the question within your Youtube video, “What sets the scale of life?”
The simple answer is simple math, but you know so well, complexity comes quickly!
I have posted my note to you (below) from January 29, 2018 among our
communications listings just to keep track of who- what-when-and-where:
https://81018.com/2018/01/29/west/ I have referred to this page in other posts within the website.
What an extraordinary career! Congratulations.
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 academics seem to 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.
