Hi Nick –

Last year in April, I added those two links you suggested.
Anything else?

I am thinking about Elizabeth Rauscher and just had to say,
“Three cheers for Elizabeth.” Yet, you are one of the few
who would know deeply why we should all cheer.

Your Quons I believe are just the stuff of the first 64 doublings of the Planck scale. There should be 64 flavors of quons if we are on the right track. The old particle-wave phenomenon is about to emerge within the 65th to 67th. https://81018.com/chart/

On a couple of occasions way back in yesteryear, I visited with Bell in Geneva arranged by Viki Weisskopf. On the 1977 trip, I also visited with Bohm at Birkbeck, but left it all behind in 1980 after doing a little time with JP Vigier and Olivier Costa de Beauregard. I couldn’t find a mentor. In 1979 I did a serious search while working on a sweet little educational project at MIT: https://81018.com/mit/

If we accept finite/derivative time and engage those first 64 doublings, there is a lot of material with which to work: https://81018.com/dark/ My current analysis is a little playful: https://81018.com/transformation/

Enough of my wanderings for the day.
Again, three Cheers for Fundamental Fysiks!


PS. I am starting my own Nick Herbert page: http://81018/com/herbert
Also, weren’t you one of the three who started the group in 1975? Surely
at least you should be added to that third line of “leading members.” OK?
I’ll do it with your encouragement.

Hi Nick –

Back in 1975 I was working with Abner Shimony at BU
on the EPR and Bell’s equations. About that time I
also corresponded with Elizabeth Rauscher, hosted
Ted Bastin in Boston for a couple of weeks, and, was
on the fringe of H. Pierre Noyes’ ANPA.

Today, I am playing with the Planck units. Alongside base-2
and bifurcation, there are 202 notations from those Planck
units to the Age of the Universe and the Observable universe.

Potentially meaningful or just a bit of junk math and specious thinking?
