Here’s a (near) play on full moon:

null foam = what existed before the (supposed?) Big Bang

That reminds me of an old (1994) play of mine on “do not worry”:

donut whirry

though in that I was thinking whirry was a noun when actually
it is a verb meaning to go quickly. I was thinking that
whirry meant a foam.

Oh, in my original usage in 1994 I wrote

“donut whirry/wherry”

and wherry is a word for a rowboat or barge, so combining
the two (whirry and wherry) you would have a fast rowboat.

From Wikipedia:

"Quantum foam or spacetime foam is the fluctuation of spacetime
on very small scales due to quantum mechanics. The idea was
devised by John Wheeler in 1955.”

Also from Wikipedia:

"Zero-point energy (ZPE) is the lowest possible energy that a quantum
mechanical system may have. ... Physics currently lacks a full theoretical
model for understanding zero-point energy; in particular, the discrepancy
between theorized and observed vacuumenergy is a source of major

I also have postulated that time has an imaginary component
which was much more important near the (supposed?)
Big Bang.

And of course there is this Wild Rover Poe-M from mid-June, 1993
which is supposed to contain some physics clues:

Where the P/Toe is a reference to the p/tau method in Geophysics,
and the beer references in the last few lines I think are again
referring to a foam in part, and the onDe leFt is partly a reference
to ondelettes (wavelets). I’ll try to interpret all of it someday
but not tonight.
