Dear Prof. Dr. Mariano Bianca:
We talked long enough in 1977 at the Santa Margherita Ligure conference, Concept of the Physical Object that I entered your name and telephone number in the back of a book David Bohm had earlier given to me when I was in London on that same excursion. My base was in Basel where I was attempting to learn enough additional German to take my language exam a second time.
I’ll enclose a picture from the back of my book! It seems that you, Maria Luisa Dalla Chiara and Edwin Eubanks might have convened the conference.
Where has all that time gone? What is time? What is space? Forty years later and we are still asking the same old questions and our models have become clouded, confusing, and complex.
In 2011, while helping my nephew with his high school geometry classes, we decided to divide by 2 until we were into the Planck scale and then multiply by 2 until we were out to the Observable Universe (defined by Hubble) and the Age of the Universe (using 13.8 billion years). There were just over 202 base-2 exponential notations.
Have you seen such a chart? It took me two years, but I discovered most everybody was familiar with Boeke’s base-10, but nobody with base-2. Why?
I had always been uncomfortable with cosmology studies. Infinity was just too big for me. But, this little chart put cosmology in a box and let infinity breathe a little.
What do you think? Meaningful? Useful?

This is an image of Bianca’s business card and my notes from the October 26-28, 1977 conference, The Concept of the Physical Object, in Santa Margherita Ligure, just southeast of Genoa, in Italy. I had attached the card and written notes in the last pages of David Bohm’s Fragmentation & Wholeness, 1977.
