Dear Professor Dr. Cumrun Vafa:

I’d seen your picture on our website, then discovered a special quote in an old segment about super hot temperatures. Based on it, I have added you to our string section.

Take the Planck base units, apply base-2 notation and there are at least 64 notations prior to a CERN measurement. That’s more than enough space for logic and mathematics and geometries to begin to work. Langlands, strings, and the rest of the symphony can have some fun (

So, I have enjoyed your video: No good idea of Planck Scale Physics (2021). I anticipate doing more work with your work and to writing to you again.

Thank you.

Most sincerely,


PS. You might want to take a look at our entirely idiosyncratic look at fluctuations. -BEC


No good idea of Planck Scale Physics (2021): In wrestling with the very nature of gravity and fluctuations, Cumrun Vafa says, “What is the Planck scale physics? We have no idea. We have no good description of Planck scale physics.”
