Just what’s happening here?

PLEASE NOTE: This page was started early in December 2014.  There are many simple errors within the chart below, so this page will be subject to frequent updates.

Are there any comparison between the progressions from the Planck Time and the Planck Length using base-2 exponential notation through the successive doublings out to their given limits, i.e. the Age of the Universe and the Observable Universe respectively?  At this point in time, I do not think there are, so we are making our first working draft attempt to do it here.

Perhaps it goes without saying… as you read this note, I appeal to you to ask questions and make comments and suggestions. Thank you.   Bruce Camber

The Planck Time, like the Planck Length, is an actual value. It can be multiplied by 2. Of course, if one were to multiply it by 2 over and over again, you can assume that you would reach those outer limits. That process looks a bit tedious. After all, the Age of the Universe is somewhere over 13.78 billion years and the Observable Universe is millions of light years from common sense. Yet, rather surprisingly, to complete that effort doesn’t require thousands of doublings. It is done in somewhere between 202 to 206 doublings. That is so surprising, the doublings for both are charted below.

These doublings do kind-of, sort-of end up somewhat in synch. Considering the duration and the length, and the nature of very large measurements, for all intents and purposes, they are synched! Though these charts will be tweaked substantially, the best confirmation is at the notations (or doublings) that define a day in Planck Time units correspond closely to distance light travels in a day in Planck Length units. And, the doublings within the Planck Time column for the definition of a week correspond closely with the distance light travels in a week within the Planck Length column. And, finally, the doublings in the Planck Time column that define a year correspond closely with the distance light travels within a year in the Planck Length column. These are the first baby steps of analysis. How many hundreds of steps are there to go to discern all the faces of its meaning? Who knows? From here, we will continue to look to see what meaning and relation evolves at a
particular notation where one column appears to impart value to the other. Just on the surface, this chart seems to suggest that there are other possible views of the nature of space and time where order (sequence), continuity, symmetries, and relations seem to play a more fundamental role.

Science and our common sense worldview assume the primordial nature of space and time. As a result of our work with the Planck Units, we hold that conclusion up for further inspection. How do things appear as one begins to approach the Planck Length and Planck Time in synch? As we add more Planck Units to this chart, what else might we see? What might we learn? So, we will add mass, electric charge, and temperature to these listings. And then, we’ll add the derived Planck Units (12) and then ask, "Is there anything more we can do to establish a range from the smallest to the largest? What might a comparative analysis at each doubling reveal to us?

At this point, we are attempting to learn enough to make a few somewhat intelligent guesses.

So, as a result of where we are today, I think it is okay to ask the question, "What would the universe look like if space and time were derivative of order-continuity and relation-symmetry, and of ratios where the subject-object are constantly in tension?"

By the way, on May 10, 2010, the very smallest unit of measured time was experimentally demonstrated;  the result was 1.2 × 10−17 seconds. That is a long way from 10−44 seconds!  For more background, see: http://phys.org/news192909576.html

This stream of  consciousness continues at the very bottom of this chart.

The Planck Time

The Planck Length

Endnotes:

1. We are in the process of refining this chart and will be throughout 2015 and 2016.

2. Our very first calculation with the Planck Length column (December 2011), resulted in 209 doublings! We found several errors. Then , with help of a NASA astrophysicist, Joe Kolecki (now retired), we updated our postings with his calculation of 202.34. Then, a French Observatory astrophysicist, Jean-Pierre Luminet, calculated 205.1 doublings. We are very open to all ideas and efforts! We are studying the foundations of foundations. One might call it a hypostatic science based on the simplest mathematics, simple geometries and observations about the way the universe coheres.

One might say, "The Finite is finite, the Infinite is the Infinite, and the constants and universals describe the boundary conditions and transformations between each. One manifests a panoply of perfections; the other has only momentary instants of perfection."

Open Questions:

What is a second?

What are Planck Units?

What is time?

What is a meter?

What is length?

What is space?

What happens just before the Planck time at 10-44 seconds? Theorists say that all of the four fundamental forces are presumed to have been unified into one force. All matter, energy, space and time "explode" from the original singularity.

3. Our online "Google" calculator often rounds up the last digit. It is usually beyond the eleventh postion to the right of the decimal point.

Stephen Wolfram, Cellular Automata and Base-2 Exponential Notation

Key references are below.

Dear Stephen:

Thank you for your lecture, A New Kind of Science.   Although over ten years ago,  I have learned and have been challenged. 
 Intellectually, you are quite compelling.

Yet, a few facts and a few ideas may need to be further examined:

  1. The universe is mathematically very small.
    Using  base-2 exponential notation from the Planck Length to the Observable Universe,  there are just 202.34 (NASA, Kolecki) to 205.11 (Paris, Luminet) notations, steps or doublings.   This work (the mathematics) actually began in 2011 in a high school geometry class when we started with a tetrahedron and divided the edges by 2 finding the octahedron in the center and four tetrahedra  in each corner.  Then dividing the octahedron we found the eight tetrahedron in each face and the six octahedron in each corner.  We kept going within until we found the Planck Length.  It was easy to decide to multiply by 2 out to the Observable Universe.  Then it was easy  to standardize the measurements by just multiplying the Planck Length by 2.
  2. The small-scale universe is an amazingly complex place.
    Assuming the Planck Length is a singularity of one vertex, we also noted the expansion of vertices.  By the 60th notation, of course, there are over a quintillion vertices and at 61st notation well over 3 quintillion vertices.  Yet, it must start most simply and here the principles of computational equivalence have a possible impact.  AN Whitehead’s point-free geometries could also have applicability.
  3. This little universe is readily tiled by the simplest structures.
    The universe can be simply and readily tiled with the four hexagonal plates within the  octahedron and by the tetrahedral-octahedral-tetrahedral chains.
  4. Yet, the universe is delightfully imperfect.
    In 1959, Frank/Kaspers discerned the 7.38 degree gap with a simple construction of five tetrahedrons looking a lot like the Chrysler logo.  The icosahedron with 20 tetrahedrons is squishy.  We call it quantum geometry in our high school. It is the opening to randomness.
  5. The Planck Length could become the next big thing.
    The behavior may not be so complicated on the surface, but far more complicated just below it.

Computers generate rules and this might be what nature is using.

I could go on, but let’s see if these statements are at all helpful. Our work began in December 2011 within a high school, however, it relies on several assumptions  — order (continuity), relations (symmetry), and dynamics (harmony) — that have been waiting to be engaged since 1972.  I’ll insert a few references below.

Many thanks again for your cellular automaton lecture.

Warmly,

Bruce Camber

Concepts & Parameters

The simplest parameters of science and mathematics opened the way for this entire inquiry.

Introduction & Overview

The question was asked on December 19, 2011, “Why isn’t this stuff on the web someplace?” It seemed like somewhere in our midst was a fundamental logic flaw. Very cautiously, this page was put up on the web over on the Small Business School website so family and friends could be asked to read this introduction and caution us or encourage us along the way.

Proposed Wikipedia Article, April 2012.

To invite critical review and collaboration, this article was submitted and then publicly posted within Wikipedia back in April 2012 yet it was deleted in the first week of May. That original iteration was again published within Small Business School.

202.34: the calculations by Joe Kolecki, retired, NASA scientist

Joe Kolecki was the first person outside our little group of students to help. He provided us with this calculation in May 2012. Soon thereafter, the Argonne National Laboratory and Nikon Small World helped a little, too.

Just the numbers

This page provides all the numerations from the first Planck Length through all 202.34 doublings.

A little story

The background story about how this perception emerged and when it was introduced in high school geometry classes on that last day before the Christmas holidays, Monday, December 19, 2011.

What are we to believe?

Universals and constants can be applied to every belief system. If the belief system is unable to accommodate both, then it is incomplete.

First Principles

The conceptual foundations for this work start with the thrust or energy to make things better or more perfect.

May we turn to you for insight? That big chart on the left measures 62″ x 14″ so it can be a bit awkward to use at your desk. We wanted to present the data in a more simple format (to be printed on 8.5×11 inch paper or displayed on a smartphone) so we created the chart on the right. We are calling it, the Universe Table. This is a long-term project, so we would like to ask a few questions to help us prioritize and focus on important things to do.

The large-scale universe seems so much more approachable. On the Big-Board-little universe chart every notation is listed. Within the Universe Table all the notations within the Human Scale are listed, but those within the small-scale are in groups of ten notations and within the large-scale they are also in groups of ten, each corresponding to one of the images from Andrew Colvin.

Your Views, Worldviews, Universe View. All views are important. Yet, some views are more optimistic, some are more creative, and some more productive. Our hypothesis is that those who balance their views with a strong worldview and a truly integrated universe view will be the most optimistic, creative and productive.

It is going to take us a long time to figure that out, so we need to get started. We are asking our guests — “Would you please take a very quick, very simple survey, then go on the tour. On the right, you will see a green arrow. Just click on it to begin.

Both charts represent the same thing — the visible universe. The very smallest measurement is the Planck Length. The largest is the Observable Universe. From the smallest to the largest, there are less than 206 notations or steps. Click on each image to see the full-sized rendering.
