Dear Prof. Dr. Rainer Dick:
I just discovered your most prodigious work within ArXiv. My first step: https://arxiv.org/abs/1809.01089 Your appreciation for string theory and your focus on the electroweak dipole moment stopped me. There is always so much to learn….
Nine years ago I was helping my nephew, a high school geometry teacher, with the Platonic solids, observing how tetrahedrons and octahedrons perfectly embed within each other, so we divided all the edges by 2 and went deeper and deeper inside. In just 45 steps within, we were into particle physics; and in another 67 more steps, we were down to the Planck Length and Planck Time. The next day we multiplied the Planck Length by 2, and in 112 steps we were back in the classroom, and in 90 additional steps we were out on the edges of the universe
and the age of the universe.
202 notations encapsulated everything, everywhere, for all time! It was a sweet but very different STEM tool. I continued to study the numbers: https://81018.com/chart/ I had to check with scholars,”Are those earliest notations just too dense?“
We were substantially over our heads and I thank you for your most challenging work to bridge heretofore unrelated concepts.
