Hi,

For several years I have worked on a website devoted to a Discrete Fractal Cosmological Paradigm.  If you think you might be interested in seeing what a discrete fractal model of nature would look like, please visit: www.amherst.edu/~rloldershaw .

I am always interested in comments, criticism or suggestions.

Rob

I've just been there and it was quite confusing since I'm not able to understand part of the vocabulary used. Perhaps it would be useful to have an easier introduction and a presentation of the material in different levels of understanding. Thank you for your work

Hi A.Real,

When one is trying to discuss the Universe, and is also trying hard not to mislead people, it is not an easy thing to simplify the discussion without jeopardizing the scientific integrity of the ideas.

That said, there are several essays on the website that only require the ability to read and a basic knowledge of the major categories of objects comprising nature.

Here are some examples:

1. In "Selected Papers", paper #0, paper #3 and paper #10.

2. In "Galactic Scale Self-Similarity" scroll down to section II, for a 2-minute ultra-simple intro to the fractal interpretation of the Big Bang.

3. Many of the "New Developments" are written at a basic level, though some others are definitely not.

4. I think any person with average intelligence and a high school education should be able to make it through Papers #1 and #2 of the "Selected Papers" section.  It may take some time and effort.  You may have to get out an astronomy text, or Wikipedia, and look up some definitions, but there is no complicated math and no weird abstract concepts.  It is really straightforward.  These two papers are required reading for anyone who wants to learn about the paradigm.  You can do it if you really want to.

The problem is that our society is too used to things being "dumbed down" and put into 30 second sound bites.  Resist and fight back with a little sustained mental effort! 

Sorry if this "no pain, no gain" type of response is a bit off-putting, but it is the honest truth.
