Dear Prof. Dr. J. Richard Gott:
Thank you for your scholarship and inspiration. We are now reading and studying your work through the references cited above.
We discovered Kees Boeke’s base-10 scale of the universe only after we had done our own base-2 scale in our high school geometry class. 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. That was our first chart.
The entire universe, everything, everywhere for all time, is very-simply yet mathematically mapped within 202 steps.
That work was for our class on December 19, 2011, the last day before the holiday recess. So, yes, we’ve had a few years to study and contemplate our chart. Of course, it is an ideal configuration. Today we begin with Planck Time and Planck Length. We’ve also added Planck Mass and Planck Charge. Here is our working chart.
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 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?
