Dear Prof. Dr. Andrew Cameron:

If we start at the Planck base units, tabula rasa, what might manifest and be best described by those four units:Planck Length, Planck Time, Planck Mass and Planck Charge?

Might we assume an infinitesimal sphere?

Well below the thresholds of measurement, those spheres would be voluminous. If being generated at a rate of one sphere per unit of Planck Length and Planck Time, there would be 539 tredecillion per second. Even though infinitesimal, these spheres could readily be generating other structures; cubic-close packing of equal spheres demonstrates it. 

As a dimensional point or vertex, it could be important to knot theory, string theory and Langlands programs. Those first 64 notations would be hard to initially accept, but….

Also, quantum fluctuations are real. Geometry is real. The gap that Aristotle missed has yet to be studied. The latest attempt by Lagarias and Zong got stuck in the study of packing densities. What happens in basic physics because of these gaps? https://81018.com/geometries/ is my rudimentary study. 

Also, the finite-infinite discussions are opened; that thrust has to come from somewhere. My preliminary analysis: https://81018.com/csh/. It redefines the infinite. I don’t think Tegmark and all those before him, Gödel, Hilbert, etc. will object.

Now you have written the rest of the story out to those pulsars.

May I hear from you?

Thank you.
