We’re coming up with such a ridiculous answer that it really forces us to reinvestigate every single assumption that we made along the way to get there.” – Claudia de Rham, Quanta Magazine, The Physicist Who Slayed Gravity’s Ghosts, by Thomas Lewton, August 2020

Dear Prof. Dr. Claudia de Rham:

If the answers are so ridiculous, why not try a ridiculously simple model? Why not start with Max Planck’s base units and assume a cold start and the emergence of a primordial sphere seemingly ex nihilo. That would be one plancksphere per plancksecond and, of course, at that rate per second
a rather astronomical expansion would be underway.

Last month I wrote this up: https://81018.com/history/
Right now, I am working here: https://81018.com/expansion/ 
That quote of yours is on that page! Now, I realize that such a model is rather pedestrian because it is too simple, embarrassingly so.
Might you comment?
Thank you.
-Bruce
