    A static 10 dimentional universe can arise spontaneously, by a
    quantum fluctuation?

    Very neat! See also his earlier paper http://arxiv.org/abs/gr-qc/0103021. He quantizes the Friedman equation. This is admittedly a simplified model, but it shows that M-theory(or at least its dimensionality!) has something to say about our universe yet.

    from where I sometimes go for walks I might even have a line-of-sight (except for Angel Island)

    I am betting that he'd welcome some correspondence----since he is a freelance he may not have as much contact and discussion as he would like
