Dear Prof. Dr. J. Richard Gott:
Thank you for your scholarship and inspiration.
We developed a bit different map of the universe and we would love to hear what you think! You can be hard on us. We are just playing with ideas that we backed into while teaching high school geometry!
We discovered Kees Boeke’s base-10 scale of the universe only after we had done our own base-2 scale. We started by going inside the tetrahedron and octahedron by dividing the edges by 2, connecting the vertices and going inside each subsequent object over and over again. In 45 steps we were in the CERN-scale and in another 67 steps in the Planck scale. When we multiplied by 2, in 90 steps we were in the range of the Observable Universe. This is the story about our first chart.
The entire universe, everything, everywhere for all time, is very-simply yet mathematically mapped within 202 steps using the Planck base units.
It all started back in December 19, 2011, the last day of classes for the year. We’ve had a few years to study and contemplate our chart. Today we begin with Planck Time and Planck Length but also added Planck Mass and Planck Charge.
Most people brush it off as naive silliness. We, too, have done that several times over the years. Yet, continuity is continuity, symmetry is symmetry, logic is logic. We might have said, “Continuity gives us math, order, and time. Symmetry gives us geometry, relations, and space.” And today, we might add, “Harmony gives us equations, dynamics, and space-time.”
We would love somebody of your depth to help us understand why our logic and rationale are off so we can abandon our idiosyncratic work and all that it seems to entail. Could you help us?
