Dear Prof. Dr. Jacques Distler:

I found a reference to your work within NSF research grants, String Theory and Quantum Field Theory and have tagged that page to follow. The subtitle stopped me: From the Planck Scale to the Hubble Scale.

Now, our work comes out of a high school geometry class so I hope you will forgive our naïveté and many blind spots, but we are studying a very similar scale. We started with a simple tetrahedron, found the octahedron within it, then continued dividing all the edges by 2, connecting the new vertices, until in 45 steps within, we were at what we call the CERN-scale (LHC measurements). In 67 more steps within, we were touching the Planck Wall. When we multiplied our original object by 2, in 90 steps we were out to the Age of the Universe (today). It was our classes STEM project in 2011. Now, it’s become our physics project as well.

We now have three pages on our website about your work and will build from here:

Will there be more reports of your group’s work within ArXiv or Physical Review D?

Thank you.

Most sincerely,
