THIS IS A VERY ROUGH DRAFT AND A WORK IN PROGRESS: We recognize that there are many errors that have been imputed along this path.  These will be cleaned up by experts within a particular notation.

Links and references to the work of scholars within each notation,  1-to-205, will be added  such that every entry on this chart will be an active link.

On-going Investigations:   Distance between bonded hydrogen atoms,  diameter of a carbon atom,  and a better definition of the ranges within the small scale and large scale universe, i.e. 191-197: 48 zettameters-to-4.7± yottometers and the Local Galactic Group

Tunneling — a wild-and-crazy speculation: There may be parallel constructs whereby tunneling is part of the transformation between primary scales, pre-particles to particles, particles-to-atoms, atoms-to-organics (ribosome), the stationary-to-mobile (sperm-egg), and the human-scale to the large-scale (Einstein-Rosen bridges).

Could cellular automaton apply to the first 60+ doublings from the Planck Length using base-2 exponential notation to PRE-STRUCTURE things?

More than things, as in protons and fermions, could the results of cellular automaton be understood as Plato's forms (perhaps notations 3-to-20) and Aristotle's ousia (perhaps doublings 20-to-30)? Assuming the Planck Length to be a vertex, and assigning the area over to pure geometries, do we have the basis for form, structure, and the architecture for substances? Then, could it be that this architecture gives rise to an architecture for qualities (notations 30-to-40)? And, as we progress in the evolution of complexity, could it be that in this emergence, there is now an architecture for relations (notations 40-to-50)? If we assume an architecture for relations, could the next be an architecture for systems (notations 50-to-60) and this actually becomes the domain of the Mind? It is certainly a different kind of ontology given it all begins with cellular automaton and base-2 notation to provide a coherent architecture (with the built-in imperfections of the five-tetrahedral cluster also known as a pentastar).

Editor's Note: This page is an exploratory to obtain constructive criticism. The work is not part of any normal curriculum. That makes it speculative even though it is based on the simplest mathematics and geometries. If it should spark a comment, "It is not even wrong." and that is you; if you can, please tell us what or why it is not even wrong. Based on the work of Max Planck and Plato, this table uses the familiar format within chemistry to order information. That table evolved over 100 years to a working format (1871, Dmitri Mendeleev), then it has taken all these intervening years to refine it. Though the similarities might provide a little comfort factor, this table is based entirely on the principle of continuity extended from the Planck Length following nested Platonic geometries out to the edges of the Observable Universe. The first 60+ notations (doublings or steps) cannot be measured. Each is hypothesized, possibly hypostatized and instantiated.

Introduction. The Big Board-little universe  was first used in class on December 19, 2011. This Universe Table (a full-sized version is just below) began a year later for those same high school geometry classes. The big board measures 62"x10" and it is just too big and awkward for desktop work.   The table is designed to be printed on 8.5"x11" paper and displayed on a smartphone. Now, the origin of these two charts can be found by looking inside a tetrahedron and an octahedron. Half-sizes of both objects can perfectly fill each other. The question was asked, "How far can we go inside each by dividing in half over and over again?" The simple answer is, "Not very far." Within 50 steps we were at the size of a proton. Within another 65 steps we were at the Planck Length. This particular table was created by multiplying the smallest possible length -the Planck Length- by 2 until we got to the edges of the Observable Universe. Distinguished scientists have helped us. One scientist calculated as few as 202.34 notations (doublings or steps) from the smallest to the largest. Another calculated 205.11.

We use both figures. Within over 202 notations, here is a simple view of the universe, highly-ordered and structurally integrated from the smallest to the largest measurements of a length, all within a geometrically homogeneous group.

Examples. Initially the examples came mostly from the Paul Falstad's Scale. Then over the following year other objects of special interest to students were selected. Each should be within the range of the notation defined as no less than 50% smaller or no more than 50% larger than that particular Planck multiple.  As we go forward, every entry will have footnotes and links for further explanation and exploration.

Exhausting. Today's information glut is so chaotic and overwhelming, it seems that it actually depresses creative thinking.  So, our hope in sharing this simple little table is that students will feel empowered to search for new insights to understand this universe more deeply and as we do, to instill some optimism about our common future.

Notice the first 66 notations. In light of the Planck Length doublings, this is rather new ground. Here, there are very few facts and many, many guesses. And, we believe that there are many more surprises to be found throughout this chart. One might readily conclude that all the surprises are new domains for research and study.
