Dear Dr. Christoph Schiller,

I just discovered your work through an open Google search on the words, ArXiv + From where do the laws of physics from? Tiny black hole whose Compton wavelength is equal to its Schwarzschild radius.

A link to the PDF of your 1996 ArXiv article, Does matter differ from vacuum?, was the first in the list.

I then opened the abstract and wondered if you were still at the Université Libre de Bruxelles. I clicked on that link to your email address and found motionmountain.net which I immediately opened.

What a sweet, bright, cheerful, educational discovery. I was impressed.

Unfortunately I am not well-trained, entirely idiosyncratic, and in need of a little head slap to get off a mission that began in a high school geometry class where my nephew asked that I take his class for a few days. I had pulled up the brake on my unfinished work on the EPR back in 1980 but things changed when I had the kids take the tetrahedron, divide the edges by 2 and go 45 base-2 steps down into particle physics and 67 steps back to the Planck scale. The longer story is here

After bothering many-too-many people, nobody has told me why our simple progression is meaningless. If it is, I am wasting a lot of my final years of life (I’m 74) and fishtailing with too many silly attempts to set that progression within a bigger picture. For example, this is my latest entitled, The First Particle. I’ll take it out from behind a firewall so you can have a laugh!

I love the spirit of your website from my brief introductions to it. I suspect you are a fair and honest broker of ideas. Might you spare a few lines to help me out?  Thanks.
