Dear Prof Dr. Christof Wetterich:

Why not go back to Planck’s original formulation for Planck Length and Planck Time and develop a scale? Yes, just multiply them by 2. That’d be the simplest, most natural inflation there could be.

Infinite past is eternity and that requires defining the infinite in new ways. Can we agree to put that on ice for awhile?

Also, I believe we are redefining that scalar field a bit. We can give them values for every point in space and time right up to the CERN-scale (as well as beyond to the Age of the Universe). That prior link goes to a horizontally-scrolled chart. Here is a link to the vertically-scrolled chart.

It is idiosyncratic, but all new work starts out in that silo. I say that it is just a bunch of numbers with an inherent logic in search of a good theory.

Can you help us? Are we all wet? Please!
