Idiosyncratic, yes, but maybe that’s what we need right now.
It’s a quick read: (the home page)
In a few weeks it’ll still be here:
Of course, your comments are always most welcomed.

You certainly are among the top, living experts on the nature of time! It would be wonderful to hear back from you.

Might I ask a series of Yes/No questions? These are:
1. Have you ever seen the universe ordered by base-2 notation from the Planck base units to the age/size of the universe in just 202 notations?
2. Is it worth pursuing as a model of the universe?
3. Is Newton’s absolute space and time the commonsense view of the universe held by mathematicians and other scholars who think about such things?

Thank you.

Most sincerely,

Dear Prof. Dr. Edward Anderson:

Your exhaustive work on time within the QG, QM and GR paradigms open paths for my further work, i.e. the geometrodynamical approach, loop quantum gravity, supergravity and string/M-theory.

Notwithstanding, might there be a naive Planck interpretation whereby Max Planck’s definitions of time are seen strictly from the perspective of light whereby we further explore his simple equation, Planck Length divided by Planck Time is equal to light. If carried across a base-2 mapping of the universe (202.34 notations), it seems that it is worth exploring further. Could it be another paradigm for physics?

Line 9 of this horizontally-scrolled chart tracts the very preliminary results of that equation.

It is idiosyncratic for sure. Is is idiotic or perhaps just imaginative? Thank you.

Most sincerely,
