Dear Dr. Heidi Schweingruber:

Simple mathematics — numbers and geometries — can be so very
beguiling. We unwittingly backed into what we call “the penultimate
STEM tool” because it encapsulates the universe — that is everything,
everywhere for all time — within 202 base-2 notations that start with Planck’s
base units (especially Planck Time) and progresses to this very day.
That progression is here: https://81018.com/chart/
Our explanation in light of STEM is here: https://81018.com/stem/
It is a novel approach and your insight and advice would be
most helpful and highly valued. That is, “What shall we do with it?” Thank you.



PS. We are slowly working on the geometries of it all. That’s how we got into this
intellectual pickle. We were very naively following embedded geometries (base-2)
all the way to the Planck Length (and then Planck Time). -BEC
