There are two favors of Pi-Day emails that I am sending to key scholars:

To Matias Zaldarriaga, I sent this one with a few unique notes.

Second email: 8 May 2020 at 11 AM

RE: Given your most-foundational thinking about first moments of the universe

Dear Prof. Dr. Matias Zaldarriaga:

I know we are among the more idiosyncratic models

of the first moments of our universe. It has been two

years since my first note (below) with all those links.

A more recent version of that email and a simple article

for FQXi is here:

Overview: https://fqxi.org/community/forum/topic/3428

Article: https://fqxi.org/data/essay-contest-files/Camber_3u.pdf

(The first five pages is the article.)

Do you think that it could have some merit?

Thank you.

Most sincerely,

Bruce

Dear Prof. Dr. Matias Zaldarriaga:

Congratulations on a most impressive scholarly career.

The best of the best.

It is a simple bit of logic that rendered a simple, highly-integrated,

mathematical view of the universe *albeit entirely idiosyncratic*.

It came out of a STEM effort within a high school in 2011.

What if we were to back away from the two Lucasian Professors,

Newton and Hawking, the *infinitely-hot and infinitely-dense* within

Newton’s absolute plenum of time, and start fresh with just

the Planck base units, using base-2 or period-doubling bifurcation,

go out the 202 notations to the current time whereby every notation

is still at work so the arrow of time is just a local notational phenomena?

Too simple? Maybe so, but our cosmological “processes” are rather

consistent with the history of the Standard Model for Lambda-CDM Cosmology.

Doesn’t simplicity rule? Isn’t there a place for elegance and beauty?

Doesn’t Euler’s identity apply to the universe?

Here’s my seven-year ride on that little wagon:
