Dear Prof. Dr. George Gillies:
I was back re-reading your article, “Standard and derived Planck quantities: selected analysis and derivations” within ArXiv and discover my prior two emails to you from 2018 and 2015. I had forgotten! That’s what happens when you’ve turned 72!
Notwithstanding, I thank you again for all your diverse work. To help me understand the scholar’s background and to help me remember, I develop this composite page: https://81018.com/gillies/
Now knowing how busy you are, I reluctantly ask if you might answer two questions for me? These are:
1. Have you ever seen the universe ordered by base-2 notation from the Planck base units to the age/size of the universe in just 202 notations? Unless you happened to go to my website, I suspect not. There has been no “peer review.” It is quite idiosyncratic, but I don’t think it is idiotic, yet I am entirely open to that conclusion. Notwithstanding, is it worth pursuing as a model?
2. Do you think that Newton’s absolute space and time is the commonsense view of the universe held by mathematicians and physicists and other scholars who think about such things?

Dear Prof. Dr. George Gillies:
Given your work on the Standard and derived Planck quantities: selected analysis and derivations, I thought you might enjoy seeing a rather idiosyncratic application of the Planck base units: https://81018.com/emergence/
I am enjoying your work.
To whom would you prefer that I address my questions? Thank you.

“… the fact that temperature as it arises within this context may be considered to be a fundamental unit possibly implies that there may be a connection between the concept of temperature and space-time itself on the same level as the connection between mass, energy, and dimensions. ” (pp17)
Dear Prof. G.T. Giles:
I have just downloaded your Arxiv paper that examines the Planck base units. There is so much to learn; and for your work, I am grateful. Surprisingly, I will be using your work within high school geometry and physics classes!
You may want to take a look at our base-2 chart of Planck’s five base units. You’ll quickly observe that I have played some games with Planck temperature:

I’ll share a version of this note with your two colleagues on the paper.
* Editor’s note: This paper uses the SI (International Standards units) prior to 2019 when they were updated to 1.616255(18)×10−35 meters for Planck Length and 5.391247(60)×10−44 for Planck Time the result is 299,792,422.79 meters per second.
The old calculations: 1.6162×10-35 meters (Planck Length) divided by 5.3912×10-44 seconds equals 299,782,054.2 meters/second.
Even the laboratory definition of the speed of light in a vacuum changes. A oft-quoted figure is 299,792,458 meters per second.
