The Pythagorean response to R. Feynman's conjecture and A. Salam's question
This book is a philosophical treatise on two important physics questions regarding the value of the fine structure constant (alpha) and the mp/me (mp: proton mass, me: electron mass) ratio. Were these values the same since the beginning of time? What is the role of man in the contemplation of the cosmos? Why nature prefers the numbers φ, π and e?
This approach is based on the views of Pythagoras and his successors (ie Iamblichus) and possibly the most important conclusion is that the zeta function (therefore the prime numbers) seems to tie together φ, π and e!
