Dear Prof. Dr. Mauro Dorato:

Yes, now, twenty years later, is it possible that there could be a different starting point for space and time?

I have been visiting with your article, “Substantivalism,  Relationism, and Structural Spacetime Realism (Foundations of Physics volume 30pages1605–1628, June26, 2000).

My question: Can we start with the Planck base units, assume Planck Time is the first instant, apply base-2 notation, and parse the universe in 202 notations?  Obviously, we have done just that, but is it meaningful?

I studied at Boston University’s Graduate School from 1972 to 1980. Among my professors and friends were Bob Cohen, Abner Shimony, Milic Čapek, and John Stachel. They all would think a base-2 model is idiosyncratic but, given Boston University’s history for toleration, they might have encouraged the exploration. Would you?

Thank you and thank for all your most prodigious work.

Most sincerely,
