An analyze and opinions about the Universe Table and the Big Board - little universe
The simplest parameters of science and mathematics opened the way for this entire inquiry.
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.
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.
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.
This page provides all the numerations from the first Planck Length through all 202.34 doublings.
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.
Universals and constants can be applied to every belief system. If the belief system is unable to accommodate both, then it is incomplete.
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 8.5x11 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 known 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.
