Dear Prof. Dr.  Ignatios Antoniadis:

Have you ever entertained the notion that the Planck scale (or its conceptual equivalent like Stoney’s numbers) might generate infinitesimal primordial spheres perhaps a bit like Lemaître’s primordial atom? Are you aware that his 1927 postulations was for a cold start? Are both concepts easily beaten down within string theory? Thank you.


PS. Because I would like to quote from your work, I have begun collecting articles by you and about you. There is a link to that page and one from our scholars’ page: https://81018.com/alphabetical/ Congratulations on becoming editor-in-chief of MDPI’s journal, Astronomy. -BEC

Dear Prof. Dr.  Ignatios Antoniadis:

As one of the participants in the Planck 2021 IPPP-Durham University conference, I am first going through those papers, asking, “What are the most special insights from these 21 scholars? How do we get beyond the Standard Model without getting too far beyond it?” Then I am starting to read the papers of the attendees like you.

I know that we’ve gone a bit too far beyond the standard model. We started at the Planck scale with a concept a little like Lemaître’s primordial sphere. If you have a moment, please take a look: http://81018.com

By applying base-2 notation at the Planck scale, there are 202 notations from Planck Time to this day. The numbers are fascinating — https://81018.com/chart/ –but interpreting those numbers is not easy. 

Your comments and insights would be treasured. And, yes, we certainly realize how idiosyncratic that model is. Thank you.

Most sincerely,
