My dear Sir Michael:

The trees of mathematics were shaken with your fine-structure constant α work (PDF).

My baseline questions:

1. Why not start with the Planck base units? If space-time are defined by light whereby Planck Length divided by Planck Time is a variable across the expansion of the universe, we have a very different starting environment — https://81018.com/c/ is my initial exploration of the topic and https://81018.com/chart has all the actual numbers.

2. If we take as a given that the Planck units are the most basic starting points, what does the universe look like within that initial expansion? Does the most prevalent constant, π, define the initial look and feel of that space-time, mass-energy unit? Might it be a sphere? Might we call it a plancksphere? http://81018/com/plancksphere

3. Can we define the finite-infinite bridge with all the dimensionless constants that define the Planck base units? Is this the first emergence of Length, Time, Mass and Charge? https://81018.com/emergence

Thank you.

Most sincerely,

Bruce

My dear Sir Michael:

If time is derivative/discrete, then what is infinite? Can continuity, symmetry and harmony be used, just for now, to describe the infinite?

If so, and we use base-2 from the Planck scale and assume fundamental geometries abide, then can we construct the universe one bit at a time from the quantum foam and spin network? There are just 202 notations and the first second emerges between the 143rd and 144th notations. So, it appears that each notation is an active current definition of the universe and, of course, these 202 notations contain everything, everywhere for all time.

Most sincerely,

Bruce
