Dear Prof. Dr. Jean-Pierre Serre:

There is never enough time. On Sunday, when I sent my little note about our history (just below), I thought, if you could, you might quickly comment. However, if you had engaged the base-2 process, and the fullness of a base-2 map of the universe had hit you for the first time, it may have been too much. It was a risk that I was willing to take. You’d have to forgive me later. The nature of the sphere, the very nature of pi, the deep-definition of the finite-infinite relation through continuity, symmetry, and harmony, might wait for the next time. But, the site’s stats from France and the Paris area have not moved, so I suspect Sunday’s note never got through to you. Well, at some point, you’ll know that I tried!

My best wishes for you in all that you do,


PS. I now have my own Jean-Pierre Serre page — — to keep track of my notes to you and to link to those pages and articles of your work that I have found most compelling. Thanks. -BEC

RE: On going to the mountain and talk to the best

Dear Prof. Dr. Jean-Pierre Serre:

High school, December 2011, we went inside a tetrahedron. Inspired by Zeno we kept going by dividing the edges by 2 and connecting the new vertices. In 45 steps, we were within particle physics; in 67 additional steps we were in the Planck scale.

Using Planck Length for our edge, we multiplied by two, 112 times to return to the classroom and 90 additional times to go out to the approximate size of the universe. All tetrahedrons and octahedrons.

Eventually we added Planck Time, assumed it was the first moment, and in 202 steps we were going beyond 13.81 billion years. It has base-2 notation and geometries. Is that enough to ask people of your caliber, is it a good model? Should we work with it?

Thank you.

Most sincerely,
