Over the years... a very incomplete timeline

Related pages on this website


1.  What is foundational?

The very real roots work go back to 1971 to 1973 to Synectics and research of perfected states in space-time.


2.  What is religion?

Work to synthesize common ground between science and theology began in earnest in January 1973 at Boston University, School of Theology and the Department of Physics.


3.  What is small? ...a business? ...a school?

The change from Small Business 2000 to Small Business School occurred on January 1, 2001 and required reflecting on who were were and what this effort entailed.


4.  Five Simple Ideas

1995. The show is picked up and broadcast by the Voice of America-TV around the world. From this point forward everything was thought in terms of a global initiative.


5.  Six simple facts for children

Key Question: How do we get the kids excited about the future, about the open possibilities, and for the unity of information and knowledge?


6.  Learn geography through the 24 time zones.

This efforts anticipates a global television show with as many as 2000 locally based production crews for as many television stations in as many markets (4M people). This show would air time zone by time zone 24-hours a day, seven days a week, 52 weeks per year.


7.  Possible steps towards a GUT, TOE

Possibly a prolegomena to a Theory of Everything Similar changes the acronym to TOES. It was written well before, but possibly anticipates, the use of base-2 exponential notation introduced within the Big Board for our little universe.


8.  Introduction: Big Board for our little universe

Exponential notation and orders of magnitude based on base 2 and asking the question about nested tetrahedrons and octahedrons within the five basic solids (Plato, circa 360 BC).

March 2016:  Working articles,  Top Ten Reasons for The Big Board – little universe Project and On Constructing the Universe From Scratch 

October 2015: Working articles, A Simple View Of The Universe , On Developing A Rationale For A Working Model Of The Universe Based On A Quiet Expansion.

February 2015: Introduced three additional Planck Units --  mass, charge and temperature -- to the 201+ doublings (groups, layers, steps)  of Planck Time and Planck Length using base-2 exponential notationThe speed of light is mathematically confirmed between notations or doublings 142 and 143. Also, a summary overview highlights twelve key ideas.

December 2014: Tracked Planck Time using base-2 exponential notation alongside the Planck Length.

July 2014: Timeline. Asked the question, Finite or Infinite: Is that the question? in pursuit of the Theory of Indivisibles. Also, wrote the two summary articles: Order in the Universe and 15 Key PointsAwarded a USPTO patent: TOT lines for constructioninitial projects in NOLA.

December 2013Updating a working article about the evolution of the Big Board - little universe project. Developed an online tour through it. The board is used within a science fair project.

March 2012:  Wrote an overview of the Big Board attempting to use the format and style of Wikipedia.  It was conditionally accepted by some Wikipedia editors in mid-April. It was indexed on the web for the last two weeks of April before being deleted on May 2, 2012 as original research. The intention was to have that work force us to find the primary reference articles that could justify using these concepts in the way we were using them.

December 19, 2011:  Substituted again.  Initiated the Big Board of our little universe.

March 2011: Asked to substitute for high school geometry classes to focus on the platonic solids. Engaged the icosahedron and dodecahedron.  Developed models of a cumulative or Pentakis dodecahedron. 

2009: Move to New Orleans from California to re-open a small production studio, to have a place for an institute and/or center for perfection studies, and to launch the local productions in each DMA in the USA and each country around the world.

2008: Opened a program for local productions by each station in the USA and country-by-country around the world. 

2001: Re-branded the show for the third time.  Small Business School clears on 200+ stations in the USA (PBS-TV) and thousands worldwide through the Voice of America.

1999.  Began streaming our first television shows on the web.

1997:  Modeling project with tetrahedron and octahedrons begins.

1994 - 2012Television producer, Small Business (1) Today,   (2) 2000, and (3) School

Learned about the death of a friend, David Bohm (1992). Thought about a visit with him in 1977 and his little book,  "Fragmentation and Wholeness"  and now I asked the question, "What is inside the tetrahedron?" 

Opened our first web site in December 1994. Broadcast a weekly half-hour about best business practices for over 50 seasons (14+ years) by the PBS-TV stations throughout the USA and around the world by the Voice of America-TV (weekdays on nine global satellites).  Re-broadcast by Dubai Business Channel and CCTV-9.

Primary focus was on the EPR Paradox and the work of John Bell at CERN.  Visited Bell at CERN as a guest of a former director-general, Victor Weisskopf (chairman, MIT Physics) and Lew Kowarski.  Studied extensively with John Findlay and briefly with Hans Gadamer. 

January 1973-1975.  Matriculated at BU STH studying the foundations of physics as related to the foundations of theology. Engaged the aRb, the subject-object discussions and began using the concept, "The Relation is the Primary Real and space and time, subject and object, are derivative." Through the Boston Theological Institute, studied with Arthur McGill, Harvard, focused on hypostatic constructs within Austin Farrer's 1943 book, Finite and Infinite.

December 1972-1980.  Bob Cohen, chairman of BU's Physics Department, asks me to discuss perfection concepts with Harry Oliver at the BU School of Theology.  Oliver and Dean Robert Nelson extend an invitation to study with them. Awarded two fellowships to pay for it all.

January 1971 - 1982.  Started a business, became associated with a think tank in Cambridge (Synectics), and began focusing on perfected moments in space-time.
