Saul Perlmutter, Brian Schmidt and Adam Riess

Discovery is better than belief.

Saul Perlmutter, Brian Schmidt, and Adam Riess shared the 2011 Nobel Prize in physics for their 1998 work to explain acceleration, i.e. the expansion of our Universe is accelerating.

I am glad you had discovered that the universe is still expanding; it helps our little model of the universe using base-2 exponential notation from the Planck base units to the Age of the Universe. Even though that it is actually accelerating raises questions for us, it seems to raise even more questions about the big bang inflation. Our definition of inflation is built into that base-2 notation. It seems no one can tell us why it’s wrong; they can only tell us that it’s idiosyncratic. And, we’ll be the first to admit, it is!

I was talking with an information guru and friend, and he said,
“Discovery is better than belief.” I agreed. We had been talking
about the base-2 model and numbers and my references to Guth, Lightman, Wilczek and Langlands. He was sure that there would be some openness to look more closely
at the implications of base-2 for the big bang.

I was not so sure. The big bang theory has been king of the road for forty years!
Dark energy and dark matter, now that’s another story.

I seriously believe the Langlands programs will be of some help in the near future.

Here is my latest post about the madness within our little world:
Of course, your comments and suggestions are always welcomed.
Most sincerely,
