Introduction. Within the next ten pages, you will see our universe as we did in our high school geometry classes back on December 19, 2011.
On the left is a small image of what we dubbed, the Big Board-little universe (BiBo-lu). We then wanted to present the data in an even more simple format. On the right is an image of what we call, the Universe Table. Both are still being developed and will be under construction for a long time.
This is a long-term project. If this is your first time to visit, a special welcome to you. You could help us by taking a brief survey at the end of the tour to help us prioritize and focus on our next steps. If you would like to get further involved, there are four ways: (1) Provide feedback. Where are we going wrong? Where are we too speculative? (2) What might constitute steps 2 through 65? We’ve called the “really-real” small scale universe because it is beyond our measuring devices. So, how do we intuit what it is. What other kinds of mathematics might apply at each notation? (3) Help us interpret the data. (4) Help with the writing. To be involved, please send us a note: camber – at – utables.com
Both charts represent the same thing — the known universe. The very smallest measurement is the Planck Length. The largest is the Observable Universe. Just to the right, you will see a green arrow. If you are ready to take the tour, just click on that arrow.
Notes about Look-and-Feel and Navigation: If any of the letters from right column, particularly the words, Archives and Meta, are bleeding through the image of the Universe Table, please open your window larger (possibly to full screen). If the header for this page is in more than two lines, you also need to open your window a little larger. If you came back here after completing the survey, please click on the pink arrow on the right to go on the tour of the Big Board-little universe.
Footnotes: On every page there are references and more notes about the how these charts came to be. The very-simple, philosophical foundations started with concepts of perfection and perfected states within space-time The simple conceptual starting points An article (unpublished) to attempt to analyze this simple model. There are pictures of a tetrahedron and octahedron. A background story: It started in a high school geometry class on December 19, 2011. The sequel: Almost two years later, a student stimulates the creation of this little tour.
This project began when we looked inside a tetrahedron and octahedron (two of the most basic geometric figures).1 Think of the embedded Russian (matryoshka) dolls. Usually there are no more than ten. Yet, here inside each tetrahedron there are four half-size tetrahedrons and an octahedron. Inside the octahedron are six half-sized octahedrons and eight tetrahedrons all sharing a common centerpoint and many common edges. It would seem that one could just kept going forever. Yet eventually you will reach the Planck length and can go no further. To standardize our study, we started at the Planck Length and multiplied it by 2 until we were at the Observable Universe. We were surprised to discover only 202-to-206 notations (or steps or layers or doublings) to go from the smallest to the largest measurements of a length.
1 Every tetrahedron and octahedron have an interior perfection and transform dynamically in ways that capture most, if not all, the processes within nature. A website to learn more about these transformations and the potential for diversity is here: http://loki3.com/poly/transforms.html
