Dear Prof. Dr. Jürgen Mlynek:

I was watching Jean-Luc Lehners work from FW 2011; and as a result, this morning
I am beginning to learn about your “Falling Walls” conferences. It is all
so much work.

Surely science today has broken open the mythopoetics of the science
of our ancestors, yet it seems we have been complicating things, perhaps
because we have not been asking the most simple questions.

In 2011 we began working with Max Planck’s base units. We began
learning about the brief history of those numbers from Frank Wilczek,
first from his articles in Physics Today and then firsthand. By engaging
Euler, applying base-2 to those Planck units, we created a simple map
of the universe and rather quickly discovered how idiosyncratic it was.

My question for you is this:
Could Planck’s base units in some manner of speaking define
the very first expressions of space and time, mass and charge?

I thought you would enjoy the question. I puzzle it all here: and I would so thoroughly enjoy your comments.

Most sincerely,
