Dear Prof. Dr. Weiss:

We are just down the street from the Livingston lab.
But we are simple people, perhaps simpletons.
In a geometry class we took a tetrahedron, divided the
edges by 2, connected the new vertices, to find the four
tetrahedra and one octahedron inside. We continued with
our division. In about 45 steps we were down among the fermions.

In another 67 steps we were down into the Planck scale.

We then multiplied our little tetrahedron by 2 and within 90 steps
we were out to the observable universe. Sometime later we added
Planck Time to our scale, then Planck Mass-and-Charge. We held
Temperature back until we could analyze just the data as given.

It’s a bit more than interesting: https://81018.com/chart
We thought it was a good STEM tool until we started thinking
about those first 678 notations up to the CERN scale.

Are we crazy? Can space and time be derivative? Might
continuity and symmetry be more fundamental?



Most sincerely,

PS.  Congratulations on having a vision and sticking with it.

We are grappling with it now.
