# What is space? What is time?

A working draft. On a long approach to a first draft.

Space and time: Using base-2 exponential notation starting at the Planck Length and Planck Time renders the most remarkable fact:  there are somewhere just over 200 base-2 exponential notations from the smallest to the largest possible measurements of a length and from the beginning of time to this present moment.

It is a simple mathematical and logical calculation. The results seem quite impossible and rather illogical, but on its most simple surface, results are results.

Discrete, quantized, finite and derivative.  Within this simple construct of the universe, space and time appear to be discrete, quantized, finite and derivative.  Each notation creates a simple range of a size within which appropriate things manifest and take their place in the universe. In this initial view of this model, the nature of each space is uniquely defined by the other four Planck base units.

Each notation works across the five Planck base units as well as up and down each individual column.  To locate where we are today within this chart, we always must go to the very largest measurement of time which we might call the Now, or the present moment, or perhaps, just “today.” If it is best measured by what we call, today, then the gauge that measures time may simply be sleep and time is always a profoundly subjective experience.

Of course, with our atomic clocks that statement flies in the face of our current realities.

Also, we have been examining the common elements of our daily experiences within  the 67th to the 134 notations. Although we live in the current moment,  some essential aspect of our being exists within the scales of the human domain.  Our essence comes from within this Planck Length column within very definitive notations, yet our living and experiencing is always within the largest measurement of time currently discerned to be in either notation 200 or 201. At this point there is a question. There’ll be much more discussion about how notations are “added” together. and the meaning of discrete, quantized and finite.

Epistemology and ethics. Also, as we move forward with our analysis, it seems that this model suggests that to the degree that we are whole, intelligent and good may be measured by how aware we are of all the notations that make up who we are within any given moment in time.

So, we have found that there are no more than 202 areas (spaces or lengths) in all of creation, then what is time?  It would seem that each “time notation” is the simple range of speeds by which transactions take place within one of those areas.  And, just like length, there are no more than 202 transactional ranges of speed within the entire universe.

Of course, this is a very rough draft, a work in progress, seeking meaning.

This summary was initiated on Wednesday, November 25, 2015.  We will come back to it frequently to see if its logic holds and then to see if the logic can be extended to specific applications within the sciences, particularly the history of the measurement and interpretation of cosmic microwave background radiation (CMB) and the continued expansion of the universe.  Thank you.
