Even With All Our Limitations, We Can, And We Will, Make Progress


Our Best Scholars Need Us

by Bruce Camber

Even our best academic minds are imperfect; they have limitations and flaws. Like the rest of us, they grasp only a fraction of the really-real realities of life. So it is incumbent on the rest of us to ask them questions, perhaps even to challenge their insights and wisdom. If we get lucky, maybe we can help fill in a few of the blanks and gaps in our knowledge of this universe.

The simple logic [1,2] within the base-2 numbers [3]. Although quite compelling to me, these numbers have yet to be critically reviewed by our leading scholars. Articles, rejected by peer-reviewed publications, are posted here on the web. As a result of reading work about natural inflation and the writing of two inflationary scholars, Alan Guth (MIT) and Andrei Linde (Stanford), I am challenged more than ever to discern the relations between our base-2 chart and special relativity and quantum mechanics. I invite your assistance. Can you help us?

I believe the potential for new insight is within the nature of space and time and its relation to infinity. All open questions, the very nature of space, time and infinity are still hotly debated. Yet, every segment of science relies on space-and-time measurements and the concept of infinity. Today, let us focus on space and time.


First, there is a commonsense view. Time is past, present, and future; and, space is defined by three dimensions: height, width and depth. Of course, there is a certain truth within our commonsense views, but these truths are relative and personal and do not apply universally. In a rather unusual sense of the word, it is as if we each create our own universe.

The arguments throughout history about space and time are contentious. And, our best scholars and scientists just may be wrong. Though it goes back to the beginning of recorded history, one of the most robust debates began in 1715 between Sir Isaac Newton (through his assistant, Samuel Clarke) and Gottfried Leibniz. They framed the problems; they never resolved dispute.[4] Then Einstein and Max Planck came along and space-and-time got even more confusing. I am of the mind that they all understood it so incompletely, our concept of space-time is now holding up science and holding us all back!
