I am writing about your whitepaper, Reinventing How We Teach Our Kids. Among all the efforts to improve education — Gates has his initiative; Bezos has his; and, Lucas (Edutopia) has his (the list goes on ad nauseam), there is a fundamental flaw.
Everybody is de facto using a Newtonian construct for space-and-time.
The largely unspoken belief is that there is no alternative. Since Einstein and now many streams within current scholarship tell us that this form of realism and naturalism can no longer be supported. “There is an alternative out there” and folks like Turok, Arkani-Hamed-Tegmark are calling for new ideas and insights.
We all grew up and have a commonsense view that space-time is absolute. Is it possible that space-time is derivative? How?
In 2011 in a high school geometry class in New Orleans, we backed into a possibility. Getting scholars to comment on it is not easy. Might you have any words of wisdom for us?
