Dear Prof. Dr. Lawrence Krauss:
We all need all the help we can get.
We went off course in 2011 when we chased a tetrahedron inside a tetrahedron, dividing the edges by 2, over and over again, until in 112 notations were were within the Planck scale. To get out of that tight space, we reversed ordered and multiplied by 2 using Planck’s chosen numbers. In just over 200 notations we were out to the age of the universe. It was happening in a high school in New Orleans.
So what do we do now? We were told, “Nobody has done it.” “Nonsense,” we replied. Our simple geometries and simple base-2 pre-conditioned our thinking; we thought, “It’s all too simple. There’s got to be a catch.”
