**Initiated**: November 2016 **Last update**: March 2020 Also: **We Communicate With Everybody. **

**Background**: Today’s top scholar-scientists can not believe that something as simple as base-2 notation could be the initial script that writes the most basic rules for the earliest beginnings of the universe, literally creating each of the known epochs as defined by big bang cosmology. It follows that this natural inflation would result in the current expansion of the universe. Our challenge is to become scientific enough to begin writing papers that can get through the peer-review process to open the discussion even wider. Our letters to the scholars of the world help us to sharpen our focus.

**Our Policy/Procedures**: Our letters that go out to key thinkers throughout the world are published here. Any response from a scholar *will not* be published unless it is encouraged and so authorized by that scholar.

**Scholars**: There are four key thrusts to communicate with scholars and leading thinkers:

(a) First, the focus was on those leading scholars who might enjoy seeing what high school students and teachers have been doing, people like Stephen Hawking, Alan Guth, Andrei Linde, and Andreas Albrecht among others. I wondered if they would think that we were clever, though obviously misguided, and might take time to correct our errors of judgment! An appeal!

(b) Those with special knowledge, people like Frank Wilczek and Freeman Dyson, who could answer key questions and tell us what we were failing to understand within their work.

(c) The third group is relatively new. I am reaching out to the graduate students, postdocs, and young scholars who are working in these areas — they have webpages — and often have been published! Where the old scholars are reluctant to take time to be critical, I have been hoping that the young would be honest and tough.

(d) The fourth group is everybody else, but especially those people who have been bold leaders, thinkers, and movers-and-shakers.
