I’ll be sharing a series of articles highlighting key milestones in our quest to understand reality at the profound Planck scale level. It is called Planck Scale Pioneers: Article Series. Recently, I revisited some of my writings from around 20 years ago and was struck by the importance of direct communication — hearing stories straight from those at the forefront of certain discoveries. This series is inspired by that spirit, aiming to review some key milestones and explore why the idea of a deeper Planck scale makes sense to me.

This journey will follow a roughly chronological order, though I may occasionally change or skip topics as needed. Below is the initial list of topics. I welcome your suggestions for additions, removals, or replacements. Note that the last three entries are fixed and will remain in their current positions.

I’m excited to embark on this exploration with you all. Your insights and feedback will be invaluable as we delve into these fascinating concepts. Stay tuned for the first article soon!
