Dear Prof. Dr. Maryna Viazovska:

Congratulations on all your awards and recognition. Sensational.

You are not very far away from your earliest successes; I am hoping

you might have some patience for a naive high school teacher and

his students. We have been asking ourselves about a most simple

progression from a tetrahedron and its octahedron going within by

dividing our edges by 2 and connecting the new vertices.

We’ve asked, “How far within might we go?”

We assumed the Planck base units of length and time were good

answers. It took 45 steps within to get into the range of CERN’s

measurements and another 67 steps within to get into the Planck

scale. https://81018.com/home/ is that back story. When we went

in the other direction, multiplying the edges by 2, in 90 steps, we

were out beyond the approximate size and age of the universe.

202 steps encapsulate the universe. What a crazy conclusion!

We only got more crazy.

If those Planck base units manifest as the first moment of space

and time, what would these units look like? We assumed the sphere

— https://81018.com/perfection/ — and then sphere-stacking as the

first functional operation within space-time.

Have you ever imagined your spheres as

“primordial infinitesimals”?

I am writing about it here: https://81018.com/3u/

It’s a work-in-progress; perhaps you might have some advice?

Thanks.

Sincerely,

Bruce
