Dear Prof. Dr. Ralph H. Abraham:

Thank you for asking the question about the emergence of the Planck scale:

“Using the concepts of the mathematical theory of self-organizing

systems in understanding the emergence of space-time at Planck scale.”

I am a simple person. My sense of emergence came from walking back inside

the tetrahedral-octahedral couplet while teaching high school kids about Plato’s

basic solids. Using base-2, 45 steps within got us down into the CERN-scale

and 67 steps further into the Planck scale. Thinking about emergence, it seemed

to be about the spheres, then sphere-stacking, and then other dynamics.

Crazy? Probably. But at least we are still thinking about things.

Thank you for your tenacity and work. Just perfect.

Warmly,

Bruce

You are quite remarkable. I wish I knew you back in the earlier days. -BEC
