Dear Prof. Dr. Ian Walmsley:

Five years ago today I sent a note just about the time you were making a transition back to ICL from Oxford. Those five years have been no illusion, but we are told by many scholars that time is an illusion. It seems that we are all a bit confused. Doesn’t it all go back to how we define the first moment in time? And, hasn’t Aristotle, Newton and Hawking biased our grasp of that very first moment of time? Might it be reduced to a simple infinitesimal sphere and the unfolding of every possible sphere-related equation, starting with Fourier, Poincare, and including Smale and Milnor’s? That is my question for you as one of the leading educators-scholars-and-thinkers living today.

If you have an answer, I will base a pointed study and a homepage around it. Thank you.

Dear Prof. Dr. Ian Walmsley:

You certainly have your hands full, so I apologize in advance for sending this note to you!  However, I wanted to thank you for your substantial work– just now listening to your JQI Seminar from February 2017 yet I especially would like thank you for your June 2017 “Entanglement in macroscopic systems.” My first read was most rewarding.  Now, I have to dig down inside of this article to engage it more fully. Your references are most helpful as a survey of current work  reflecting on concepts from within EPR-Bell non-locality.

Most sincerely,
