Hi George,

I’m 75 and still at it and I hope you are, too. The webpages of http://81018.com have seen a fair amount of activity and just today, I noticed somebody visiting our page about your work.

What more should we say about you and your work? https://81018.com/2018/10/19/johnson/ (this page)

I keep making a nuisance of myself among our leading thinkers, especially those who are hostile to anybody who dares to walk on the holy grounds of big bang cosmology. I think the results of the work of the James Webb Space Telescope, especially the smoothness of the earliest universe will challenge them most profoundly. Eventually somebody will begin to be open to an infinitesimal start at the Planck base units. Of the 17 epochs of the big bang, base-2 notation mimics those epochs, with some slight modifications and as ongoing processes, very well.

Were you able to explore our chart of 202 notations? https://81018.com/chart/
We thought it was a good STEM tool initially: https://81018.com/stem/
The most recent homepages tell the story: https://81018.com/pages/

Today’s homepage might be a bit of a stretch: https://81018.com/reason/

Best wishes to you always,

RE: “How Is the Universe Built? Grain by Grain

Dear Mr. Johnson:

This note is a slight re-write of an email sent in 2013. The links have all been updated and some parts deleted to shorten it a bit.

“I will be quoting from your New York Times article, “How is the Universe Built?” If the NYT is not displaying it, we have a backup. Password: 1999

I had wished that I had read it much earlier. I also wished that I met you when we were filming in Santa Fe for our television series about best business practices on PBS-TV in the USA and Voice of America-TV around the world.

The yoctometer. In 2013 from Google there were just 6070 references. Now five years later it is up to 44,700. People are starting to study the very, very small.

“Have you ever seen base-2 exponential notation applied to the Planck base units to Age of the Universe and the observable universe? There are 202.34 doublings or steps. We couldn’t find it, so created a little chart for our high school geometry and physics classes. The most recent chart is here: https://81018.com/chart (horizontally-scrolled)

“I thought you might find these pages of some interest.”

“One of the homepages looks at dark matter and dark energy: https://81018.com/dark/

“I have been looking at all this since 1970, but could never quite get my chops up as a mathematician, but I had a few friends who did.”

“As a result of your article I am now exploring Rovelli and Smolin but, of course, I love the way you write and the clarity you bring to difficult subjects. It should help me in my preparations to explain the Big Board to 6th graders! Geometry, parameters, boundary conditions, transformations and numbers: Is there a simpler way?”

Thank you for all that you do. Your work is all very much appreciated!
