RE: A brilliant introduction to your work
The James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) will push the Standard Model of Cosmology beyond the logic of big bang cosmology. Lemaitre, Hawking, Guth and followers have had to ignore the most basic formula for science, pi (π), as well as the other dimensionless constants. I congratulate Quanta Magazine and you for your article, Standard Model of Cosmology Survives a Telescope’s Findings. You focus on key people and the key issues. If you were to place them all within the 202 base-2 notations from Planck Time to this day, a predictive, mathematical model would deeply inform and challenge our logic. That continuity equation is a most-basic continuity equation. Symmetry relations are clear. And, the inherent harmonic functions of the Fourier transform should inspire because here is a place for Langlands, for strings, loop quantum gravity and hypothetical particles. Here is a place of all those disciplines that are not on the grid. There may even be a place for Smale and Milnor‘s attractors and repellers. The first second, as you might imagine, is out within the 143rd notation. The first year is within Notation-169. It is a model of the earliest universe where our thinking is least developed.
I had been writing an article about the Scientific Method and how it de facto assumes the big bang as well. Of course, de jure is the counterpoint and I was particularly looking at pi and the dimensionless constants. My introduction to your work was your January 20th article and it is one to which I will return and savor over and over again.
Thank you, Rebecca Boyle, for your excellent work.
