Dear Prof. Dr. James Weatherall,

Sometimes misinformation is perspectival, an adoption of a point of view that can not be validated yet feels right and comfortable.

Although Newton was familiar with Leibniz’ relational point of view, he promulgated absolute space and time. It worked for him and it has become so ingrained within our cultures throughout our tiny world, it’s “our commonsense” point of view. That doesn’t make it real information; it could well be misinformation, and now, possibly disinformation.

Your colleagues, Turok Arkani-Hamed, and Tegmark are rather radical about it!

You’ve become an expert in logic: Is it possible that Max Planck’s 1899 definitions of a primordial or fundamental length and time determined by light introduces a higher logic?  If the results of his simple equations are validated scientifically (experimentally), does that warrant a little extra attention to answer questions like, “What does it mean?”

Congratulations on all that you are doing!  Just sensational!
Thank you.

Warmly,
Bruce
